Before the development of All-on-4™, patients often had to go through long, uncomfortable and expensive procedures, such as bone-grafting, to ensure that enough bone was available to integrate with their implants. With All-on-4™, there is far less likelihood of you needing any bone-grafting at all.

All On 4 is a treatment that provides implant-supported dentures. These are a type of denture that are firmly attached to two or more implants in your jawbone, which creates a completed secure dentures, giving you the ultimate comfort and peace of mind. You only need between 2-4 implants to provide a firm base that will support a full denture. The denture will then be attached to the implants using a retainer system consisting of 2 components; one permanently attached to the implant, the other to the denture.
The components click together keeping your denture securely in place at all times. Once the denture is in place over the implants that’s the procedure completed. Usually you would have to wait 3-6 months for your gums to heal. Now however, with All On 4, it’s possible to fix a bridge to dental implants in the same procedure. All you have to worry about is your new natural looking smile.
In you initial appointment we carry out a thorough assessment of your mouth, gums and teeth and plan your implant treatment.
At your next appointment we place all four of your implants in one visit under local anaesthetic. We then open the gum and drill a small hole into the jaw bone. The implants are placed into the opening.
Usually your gum will require to be left to heal for 3 to 6 months. However with the All on 4 treatment, it is possible to fix a bridge to dental implants at the same time as the implants are placed in the jaw, giving you a beautiful smile in just a few hours.
Your bridge is prepared and hand crafted for you prior to your implant placement appointment, so we simply check that all fits well and place the bridge restorations on your implants permanently.
The bridge is so firmly attached that the supporting pink denture plastic is not required as in a denture.
This process will allow you to have a full set of permanent, fixed teeth. Your new teeth will be the next best thing to your natural teeth leaving you to smile with confidence.
