What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are a titanium screw that is placed inside the jaw which replaces or acts as a root of a tooth. The dental implant is fitted with either a crown for single tooth restorations or a dental bridge in the case of multiple or all missing teeth. Dental implants are biocompatible which means that they make a bond to the bone like that of a natural tooth. This makes them a permanent and lifelong resolution to tooth loss and with modern day prosthodontics they look and feel like real teeth too!

Do you want teeth in a day?

The all on four is also known as teeth in a day, same day teeth, same day smile and teeth now. All these procedures are referring to implants with “teeth” or a dental bridge fitted on the same day. The all on four procedure can be used with the teeth in a day dental implant technique, which means that a complete restoration of the upper and or lower teeth with a provisional bridge can be fitted the same day.

More on teeth - in - a -day... This dental implant technique means that you can have dental implants and a new smile in just one day. After the dental implants are placed, impressions are taken and a provisional crown or bridge is then made that day. Dental implants take 4 - 6 months to heal, and this is why a type of provisional crown, can be ‘immediately loaded’. The provisional crown or bridge still looks and feels like real teeth, but the final prosthodontics will be made from better materials and will have advanced aesthetic results. The design of your smile is catered to you and the things to consider are colour, shade, shape and position.

Is the all-on-four for everyone?

Dental implants can improve your self-esteem, your confidence and eliminate problems with speech, eating certain foods and more. An Adult with good oral health as well as good general health is eligible for dental implant treatment. That is not to say that if you have poor oral health that you will not be able to have dental implant treatment, it just means that you must be treated for this before undergoing any dental implant procedure.  

What are the benefits?

The good thing specifically about the all - on - four treatment is it can be an alternative to bone augmentation (sometimes needed for implants). Not only does it prevent the need for bone augmentation it also prevents future bone loss which is caused by tooth loss.
