What are all on 4 dental implants?

With dental treatments constantly evolving worldwide, we at Maida Smiles Clinic are devoted to providing our patients with the latest global technological advancements in the industry right here in the heart of Maida Vale, London.

The All-on-4 is a revolutionary new technique whereby a whole arch of failing teeth is placed in a single visit with one of our implant dentists.

Facts:

  • All-on-4 is not an invention but an evolved treatment technique that we decided to implement to help you achieve your dream smile.
  • It involves the placement of 4 dental implants into the jawbone to support an entire bridge of teeth.

How All-on-4 works

The small number of implants allows for flexible placement, which means they can be placed wherever your bone mass is the greatest, avoiding anatomical limitations. This dramatically reduces, and in most cases eliminates, the need for harmful and invasive bone graft and sinus augmentation surgeries, making the treatment virtually painless, especially when using IV sedation. More.

Since the implants are eventually integrated into the bone, they help reduce or avoid bone resorption or atrophy.

Just like natural teeth

As you can take care of your new smile just like you would with natural teeth, the all-on-4 procedure minimises disruptions to your lifestyle, making inconvenient dentures a thing of the past! The high bite power of all-on-4 dental implants also means that you can now enjoy life without any restrictions on your diet.

Additionally, these implants are cost-effective and permanent. They are placed firmly in your jawbone to eliminate shifting without the need for adhesive.

We can combine this technique with other implant treatments for your desired aesthetic and functional results.

How long do All-on-4 implants last?

With proper care and good oral hygiene habits, the prosthesis attached to All-on-4 implants should last up to 30 years. When the prosthesis needs to be replaced, we can do so without disrupting the implants in the jaw, which can last a lifetime.

You can expect natural and attractive results because your new teeth will be customised expressly for you and anchored right down into the gum line and jawbone to mimic natural teeth. Often, traditional dentures are easy to spot because they seem to move or float on top of the gums as you eat and speak.

Pros:

  • The treatment is virtually painless, and there is little recovery time.
  • Treatment is completed in just one appointment.
  • You can choose to undergo the treatment under local anaesthesia.
  • There is no palate plate, so you can enjoy your full taste without the plate being in the way.
  • Our experienced team will do everything possible to make you feel at ease.
  • We offer advice before, during and after all treatments.
  • More beneficial in the long term.
  • A success rate of over 95%.
  • No more fear of loose teeth.
  • The All-on technique can also be used for severely shrunken jaws, often without additional interventions.
  • All-on-4 teeth guarantee a natural restoration that looks beautiful and real.

Cons:

  • Patients are required to take proper care of their oral health.
  • Prolonged poor hygiene can eventually lead to peri-implantitis, which would affect the aesthetic and function of the implants.
  • A small percentage of people may not be suitable for the procedure.
