Are you troubled by loose dentures, missing or badly worn down teeth, or embarrassed about your smile? All On 4 may be the treatment of choice for you.
As the name indicates All On 4 is a solution that uses four dental implants to support all teeth on either of the jaw.
How does All On 4 work?
This procedure is staged over several months and starts with a thorough assessment of your case to confirm the suitable of the procedure.
Step 1 - Assessment
We’ll do a full understanding of your concerns and expectations of treatment. Then a thorough check-up of mouth, jawbone, profile, and overall health, using x-rays, 3D imaging, and digital impression is carried out. A detailed treatment plan will be prepared and explained to you, including relevant cost involved.
Step 2: Implant placement
Working together with the dental lab and using the digital technology we create a plan for the best locations and directions for your implant placement and harvest a 3 D printed surgical guide to replicate the same in your mouth. A key hole surgery is performed and implants placed. Then we allow 4-6 months for the bone to grow over the Implants. This process is called “osseointegration”.
Step 3: Fitting implant posts
After the adequate healing is confirmed, posts or abutments are fitted to the implants. They are the link between the implants and prosthetic teeth. Then a digital scan is made to be sent to the Lab.
Step 4: Placement of dental bridge
This is the final stage of the process. Dental bridge received from the Lab will now be fitted to the Implants. Your dental bridge unlike removable dentures will be fixed, look and feel like natural teeth, enjoy all type of foods and smile without embarrassment.
