Absolutely. The all-on-4 dental implant technique gives you permanent teeth that looks, feels and function just like real teeth. No one will know you have implants unless you tell them.
What type of cleaning is required after an implant is placed?
Dental implants should be treated just like your natural teeth should be treated. Daily brushing and flossing is recommended, our hygienists will review oral hygiene instructions with you and will recommend the most appropriate oral hygiene treatment plat to fit your needs.
How long will they last?
If the bone that they are fitted to is strong and healthy and if the implants are well looked after, one can expect them to last for many years.
Is there a lifetime guarantee?
Just as with other surgical implants (such as hip replacements) there is no lifetime guarantee. But if they are well looked after, there is no reason why they shouldn’t last for many years.
