All On 4 Dental Implants

All On 4 Dental Implants

We understand how hard life can be with missing or damaged teeth. Dentures or bridges are one solution, but they come with many disadvantages. People with dentures often worry about issues like plate slippage, so they have to avoid some of their favorite foods, like fresh fruit, corn on the cob, or a juicy steak. They often need to give up healthy activities such as swimming and dancing for fear of having their dentures slip, over even worse, fall out. Dentures are also a chore to take care of, and they tend to be uncomfortable for many people. They can also break or get lost. This affects a person’s true quality of life, making it difficult to manage many daily activities.

Although crowns are often a solution, they are not always a viable choice. Those with missing teeth have problems chewing and may feel self-conscious about having gaps in their smile. Over time, facial muscles tend to relax, which can cause sunken cheeks and changes in the shape of your face. Life simply is not the same. However, over the years, patients had to undergo a lengthy, difficult and expensive process if they needed to have a large amount of teeth replaced with implants. Now with such advances in dental technology, procedures like all on 4 dental implants are relatively straight forward with minimal pain.

What are all on 4 dental implants ?

All on 4 dental implants are a newly available procedure to replace a full arch of teeth in one go. This revolutionary dental implant procedure allows implant surgeons to provide a natural looking fixed set of replacement teeth in just one day, with only four implants necessary. Although in some cases more implants can be used, a minimum of 4 implants is needed in order to support a fixed dental bridge.

      Hi, the all on 4 implant treatment is suitable for those cases where patients where patients have all their teeth missing or advanced gum disease in either the upper or low jaw.

We provide a FREE assessment for implant treatment and would be able to give you an outline of the treatment required. Some cases are simpler than others, the most important factor being the quality and quantity of bone available for implant placement. The treatment usually takes about 6 months to complete although complex cases can take 12-18 months if bone grafting is required. The costs for this treatment vary between £6500 – £8500 per arch.

  6. Steve Verrall says:

    I have today had a tooth on the side of my mouth top right removed as crown broke and tooth had calcified. How long do I need to wait before I can think of a replacement .

    • Bruno Silva says:

      Hi Steve, thanks for the inquiry. Usually we recommend a minimum of 4 months after having a tooth removed before we place an implant. During this time new bone will form into the area where the tooth was removed. The gum tissue will also be able to heal over and create a better environment for implant treatment. If you do need any further information please feel free to contact us. We do provide free consultation for patients interested in dental implant treatment. Many thanks, Bruno

  7. Colin says:

    I just wanted to say a big THANKYOU to Bruno and his team for taking great care of me in January. I have had continual problems with my teeth throughout my adult life. Mid January Bruno and his team performed ‘all on four’ surgery. I had expected immense visible bruising and swelling, along with days of agonising pain following the surgery. After four days the majority of the external swelling had subsided. Three weeks later I’m able to chew food in all areas of my mouth, something I cannot remember ever being able to do!

    Finally – I have the confidence to laugh and smile without covering my mouth!

    Thankyou
