REPLACING SEVERAL MISSING TEETH

All-on-4

All-on-4 implants are used to support a full denture bridge. They are an excellent alternative to dentures as fewer implants are used and are faster and more affordable.

 

They are especially suitable for patients who are missing multiple teeth in a row and would like to have all of them replaced in one hassle-free, seamless procedure.

What is an All-on-4?

What is an All-on-4?

All-on-4, also known as pro-arch, teeth-in-a-day or full mouth dental implants, is a method where 4 or 6 implant fixtures are precisely placed into each jaw at one go.

 

Within the same day, a bridge prosthesis can be fitted over each fixture, linking up to provide you with a full set of teeth in a day.

Benefits of an All-on-4

There are multiple benefits of the All-on-4 including: 

Permanent Solution & Convenient

Removable dentures sometimes slip in and out of place, and also need to be cleaned and replaced every few years. Dental implants are permanently fixed in place, making it a convenient, stable solution.

Natural Feel

These implants feel like your own natural teeth with their feel, function (e.g., chewing food, speech), aesthetics, psychology, and maintenance.

Durable and Long-Lasting

Once your implant fixtures successfully fuse into your jaw bone, they are said to last a lifetime. That is, with proper maintenance and care.

Do I Need an All-on-4?

You may need dental implants if:
  • You have multiple missing, failing, or loose teeth;
  • You currently wear a full or partial denture;
  • You are concerned about having to wear a denture;
  • You are unsatisfied with your current denture.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

Stage 1: Consultation

  • Detailed Exploration of Concerns

When you attend your consultation at Nuffield Dental, our team of specialists will discuss all your concerns to ascertain if you are suitable for an All-on-4 surgery. 

 

  • Full Dental Assessment

Our dentist will thoroughly examine your general health condition, as well as the condition of your teeth and gums. This may include having to take some X-rays and CBCT scans to assess your suitability for the All-on-4 dental implants system or other treatment options.

 

  • Individualised Treatment Plan

Our specialists will hereafter thoroughly explain your condition, the benefits and risks of each of the possible options, and tailor a final treatment plan after consulting with you.



Stage 3: Post-operative

Your body requires a few days to accept the implant. You will then be required to come down for a second appointment for the dentist to access the healing process.

 Stage 2: All-on-4 Procedure

  • Anaesthesia

Before commencing, the relevant areas will be completely numbed with local anaesthesia, so that you will not feel any pain at all during the whole procedure, only some pressure or vibrations.

 

  • All-on-4 Procedure

Our dentist will first carry out any necessary extractions of the relevant teeth. Thereafter, he or she will precisely place suitably-sized All-on-4 implant fixtures into your jaw bone.

 

  • Interim All-on-4 Bridge Prostheses

Our in-house laboratory will then proceed to custom-make your interim All-on-4 bridge prostheses. These will be fitted to your implant fixtures in the same sitting, successfully restoring your smile, form, and function on the same day.

Maintaining an All-on-4

All-on-4 dental implants have the best longevity in patients who:
  • Consistently maintain excellent oral hygiene;
  • Maintain good gum health;
  • Regularly have dental check-ups;
  • Do not place excessive biting forces on the implant due to a dysfunctional bite or by grinding their teeth;
  • Do not smoke.
