All-on-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4® is a dental implant procedure that helps to replace dentures or a complete set of missing teeth with only four implants. All-on-4® (or All on Four) procedures is also called Teeth Now and Same Day Teeth. At DS Dental Clinic in Harley Street, London, our dentists will place the all on 4 implants and fix high-quality crowns in a single visit.


With the use of All-on-4 dental implants, patients can replace a full arch or both arches with fixed teeth. It is possible to place 4 in 1 to 6 dental implants at strategic positions and angles that provide the foundation needed for the placement of a fixed ten tooth bridge.


All on four implants a fixed temporary solution so patients can always have teeth on and carry with their normal activities.

What is The All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

When all-on-4 dental implants heal completely and integrate with the jaw bone, then a high-quality and durable permanent titanium fixed bridge or any other suitable form of dental prosthesis will be fitted. The technique consists of the following:
 

  • Few as four implants for each jaw - While a full mouth of implants with traditional methods requires 8-10 implants for each jaw, the All-on-4 procedure uses only four. Sometimes five or six may be required in the upper jaw where there is lower bone density.
  • Angled rear implants - Instead of inserting vertically, the rear implants can be placed at an angle of 30-45 degrees. This means patients who have bone loss should qualify for All-on-4 without going through the lengthy process of bone grafting.
  • Implant fitted in a day - This procedure evolved the title ‘teeth in a day’, ‘same day teeth’ or ‘smile in a day’. This is a development on traditional implant procedure that requires six months or more to complete with proper recovery time at each step of the process.

About our All-on-4Dental Implants Procedure

Initial consultation

The first step in the treatment process involves a thorough consultation with your chosen dentist. During the consultation, they will assess the condition of your mouth and perform a CT scan. With the help of this scan, they can assess your suitability for implants. They will check your jawbone density to determine precisely where the implants need to be inserted.


Your dentist should discuss all possible treatment options with you before you commit to anything.


If you want to proceed, then the next step will be for dental impressions to be taken. These are sent to the laboratory where your new bridge is made that will look like your natural teeth. Some dentists use scanner technology for your mouth, which enables them to know the condition of your present teeth without taking impressions with putty.


Your dentist may take some x-rays to plan the treatment.

Surgery

If you need teeth extracted before the implants are inserted, then this can be done on the same day.


Your oral care surgeon will offer a sedative so that you can relax during the treatment. After this, they will anaesthetise you in order to minimise the pain. If you want to have a general anaesthetic for the All-on-4 treatment, then ask your dentist about it during your initial consultation.


Once the remaining teeth are extracted, your mouth will be cleaned thoroughly to get rid of bacteria and damaged tissue.


The dentist will drill two or more holes at the front of your jaw to hold the front implants. There will also be two holes at the rear – one on each side – that are usually angled to provide greater support to the rear of the bridge.


After the implants have been placed, your mouth will be cleaned again and any incisions stitched up. It is quite common for dentists to use dissolvable stitches that usually absorb within one or two weeks.


You will be fitted with the new teeth, either on the same day or the following day. Some dentists may create a temporary over denture at this stage that can be replaced after a few months. This is usually made of resin, which is a light but less durable material and may put less pressure on the implants as they heal.

Aftercare

You will experience some swelling, bruising and discomfort during the first few days after the surgery. After this, you will probably need to take a few days off from work to recover completely and get used to your new teeth.


Your oral care surgeon will offer a sedative so that you can relax during the treatment. After this, they will anaesthetise you in order to minimise the pain. If you want to have a general anaesthetic for the All-on-4 treatment, then ask your dentist about it during your initial consultation.


Your dentist will give advice on the kind of foods you can eat during the first few months after treatment. At this time, you will probably stick to soft foods so that you can recover complete from implants that fuse with your bone. You might be advised to quit smoking and not to do any strenuous exercise for some time.


These implants can be cleaned like your natural teeth by brushing once in a day. Your dentist will show you the right techniques of flossing by using special tools. You might have to invest in a water flosser with special attachments that are especially made to clean around implants.

Final checks and fitting

Six to nine months after the surgery, your implants will be able to support a permanent over denture. This is usually made from porcelain or other high quality durable materials.


If you take proper care of your new teeth, they should last for ten years or more.


You need to return to the dentist for routine checkups and proper maintenance. Check if the visits are already included in the treatment cost or whether they need to be paid separately.
