If you have lost all or most of your teeth, you may consider having a full arch of either upper, lower or both sets of teeth placed on four dental implants.
Whilst implant-supported dentures and bridges do provide support, Dentists & Doctor’s All-on-4 procedure may offer you the long term stable solution with no removable parts and the comprehensive results you are looking for.
There are several ways you can treat missing teeth. You can obtain a set of dentures, which you can use during the day and take out at night. You can have these dentures implant-supported, meaning they click into place more securely. Or, you can opt for an implant-supported bridge, also known as multi-teeth implants, for localised surgery.
However, these options do not cover everything. While dentures and implant-supported dentures provide support, you might find you want a more permanent solution, especially if you are missing all or most of your teeth. The same goes for implant-supported bridges: a great solution for local support, but less so for a full set of teeth.
The All Teeth on 4 Dental Implants procedure provides an effective, comprehensive solution to your dental needs, whether you’re missing all of your teeth or you will be soon. By placing two titanium screws into the front of your jawbone, and two at the back on an angle, the implants are able to sturdily support a full set of teeth. What’s more, there is no need for bone grafting and the extended healing time which comes with it: the angle of the implants mean they have greater contact with your existing bone, meaning far greater stability than other options.
Since there is no need for bone grafting or the healing time associated with other implants, the All-On-Four solution is typically a much more efficient option. However, as with any dental surgery, your unique medical conditions will be taken into account. For our more anxious patients, Dentists & Doctors offer dental implant surgery under sedation or general anaesthetic to ensure you are comfortable and confident throughout the procedure.
