Have you heard of All-on-4 dental implant treatment? If not, this could be just the news you’ve been waiting for. All-on-4 is an innovative same-day implant treatment, which uses a set of four implants to secure and stabilise a full arch of new teeth. Dental implants are prostheses, which are designed to replace the missing tooth root; they are implanted into the jaw bone and they integrate into the tissue, which enables them to provide the same level of anchorage as a natural tooth root. Once this process is complete, a new restoration is connected to the head of the implant and this replaces the crown section. In the case of All-on-4 implants, four implants are placed in the jaw bone and the new teeth are then connected on the same day. Two of the implants sit at the back of the mouth at 45 degree angles and two are located at the front of the jaw; these implants are placed at 90 degree angles, as with normal implants. Traditionally, it takes between 6 and 10 implants to support a full arch of new teeth, but the position and angle of the All-on-4 implants takes full advantage of the strongest bone tissue at the front of the mouth and this reduces the quantity of implants required. The standard treatment time for dental implants is between 3 and 9 months, but this option is much faster, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of treatment in just one day. All-on-4 offers patients with missing teeth a veritable array of benefits, including rapid results, enhanced aesthetics, increased confidence and complete peace of mind, which enables you to eat and speak with ease and no anxiety at all. With implants in place to support the denture, there is no risk of irritation caused by slipping and you can enjoy a much more powerful bite, which makes it possible to enjoy a wide range of foods. If you’ve had trouble with dentures in the past or you’re looking for a highly effective solution for tooth loss, All-on-4 could be the answer; call today to book an appointment and see if this is a suitable option for you.
