What is All-On-4 Dental Implants Treatment And Who Is Suitable?

First made available in 1998, All-On-4 dental implants has gone on to treat hundreds of thousands of patients around the world, offering patients with several missing teeth a cost-effective solution to traditional implants treatment.

All-On-4 treatment can benefit patients who:

  • Have poor dentition because of gum disease or failing bridgework and whose only other option is dentures.
  • Currently have upper and/or lower dentures.
  • Cannot tolerate dentures.
  • Suffer from a lack of self confidence and low self esteem because of the movement of dentures whilst talking and eating.
  • Are limited with their diet because of wearing dentures.
  • Are suffering from jawbone resorption caused by long-term dentures treatment.

All-On-4 – why is it so popular?

All-On-4 allows patients to have implants but at a cheaper cost than single implants. If you have more than 1 missing tooth, All-On-4 is the most cost effective treatment for you and will restore your teeth in a way that dentures cannot. Quality of life is quickly improved as they allow the patient to chew, speak and smile with confidence.

Improve your facial aesthetic

As the All-On-4 system can tackle jawbone loss that might be caused as a result of dentures or years of having missing teeth. As the implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, your body thinks it is a real tooth and accepts it via a process known as ossiointergration. Your tissues will begin to grow around the implant and allow it to become a permanent part of your body.

Eat what you want and eliminate speech problems

As dentures are prone to shuffling around in your mouth, you may have been avoiding eating hard foods that could cause such movement or indeed damage your dentures. All-On-4 implants are a permanent set of teeth with a non-removable implant-supported retained bridge, so you don’t have to worry about them moving or affecting your speech.

Avoid health issues associated with missing teeth

Vacant spaces in your mouth are susceptible to a build-up of bacteria which can easily transform into signs of gum disease, as the gumline can become inflamed. Replacing missing teeth
