All On 4

Traditionally, implant treatment takes several months, but All-on-4 gives people the opportunity to enjoy their new smile immediately.

What is All-on-4?

All-on-4 is an innovative dental implant system which allows patients to benefit from a new smile on the same day as they are given implants. The system includes four dental implants that are used to support an arch of new teeth. Normally, at least six implants would be required to do this, but All-on-4 employs advanced techniques to provide faster treatment time. The system is sometimes known as ‘Same Day Teeth’, ‘Teeth in a Day’ or ‘Same Day Smiles’.

This implant system was developed to provide people with an effective and long-lasting solution to missing teeth. The system also addresses many of the problems commonly experienced by patients who wear dentures.

How does All-on-4 work?

The All-on-4 implant system works by making the most of the strong, dense bone tissue at the front of the jaw. Two implants are placed at the front of the jaw and two implants are placed at the back of the jaw, the implants being positioned at specific angles to allow maximum support for the new teeth. The back implants are placed at forty-five degree angles and the front implants are placed at ninety degree angles.

Who can benefit from All-on-4?

The treatment may be beneficial in the following circumstances:

  • If you have loose dentures or find wearing dentures uncomfortable
  • If you have suffered bone loss in your jaw and have consequently been advised against traditional implants
  • If you have periodontal disease
  • If you have crowns or dental bridges that are loose or damaged and need to be removed and replaced

The benefits

All-on-4 implants give denture-wearers greater peace of mind that their teeth will remain securely in place and not come loose while eating, speaking or performing many of the activities commonly done on any given day. The treatment is also beneficial for people who need new teeth fast. Rather than waiting for months for traditional implants your smile will be restored immediately.
