We are well-versed in the wonders of modern dentistry, but there are certain treatments and systems that still blow us away. If you’re not au fait with contemporary dental solutions, you may be shocked to find out that it’s now possible to create a brand new smile with a brand new set of teeth in just one day.
What is All-on-4?
All-on-4 is a stunning example of just how far dentistry has come. Gone are the days of waiting months, even years for spectacular results. If you’ve lost a large number of missing teeth, you don’t have to live in fear that you’ll never feel confident when you smile again. With All-on-4, we can create an incredible new smile in one day. It sounds impossible, but with All-on-4, your dental dreams can become a reality.
All-on-4 is an innovative implant system, which uses a set of four dental implants to secure a full arch of new teeth. Traditionally, between 6 and 10 implants are required to support a full arch, but All-on-4 implants are designed to take full advantage of the strongest tissue in the jaw bone. Two of the implants are located at the front of the mouth and two are placed at the back. The back implants are positioned at a 45-degree angle to maximise stability. This differs to standard implants, which lie at a 90-degree angle. Once the implants have been fitted, the new teeth can be placed on the same day, giving you instant access to your amazing new smile.
Who can benefit from All-on-4?
All-on-4 is recommended for patients who have lost all or most of their natural teeth. It offers a solution to many of the problems faced by denture wearers, as the teeth are secured by implants, rather than the natural suction of the gums. If you’d like to find out more about All-on-4, and you think you may be a good candidate, call us and book a consultation. We’ll be able to tell you all about this wonderful treatment and help you decide whether you’d like to go ahead with treatment.
