What Are All On 4 Dental Implants?
All On 4 dental implant treatment is a revolutionary method for replacing multiple missing teeth in a patient’s mouth. The innovative procedure allows a whole set of new teeth to be fixed onto just four dental implants, instead of several. It requires placing four long titanium posts into the jawbone where they will serve as support for a dental prosthesis, such as a prosthetic bridge.
All On 4 is a far superior option than being fitted for dentures. Unlike dentures which can be removed, dental implants are permanent and fixed deep into your jawbone. Over time, your natural bone and soft tissue will grow over the dental implants and permanently secure them into place.
The result is a fully-functional and comfortable set of teeth that looks and feels like the real thing. You’ll be able to eat, speak and chew food as normally as you would with natural teeth.
Our fully-qualified and highly-skilled dentists at StarKlinics can have you fitted for All On 4 dental implants in just one visit. Using the latest in digital technologies and 3d computer-aided systems, we’ll build you a brand new smile with no pain, no needles and no multiple dentist visits.
How Is All On 4 Different From Regular Dental Implants Or Dentures?
Regular dental implants are used to treat a patient who has lost one or more teeth and requires a dental prosthetic to replace it. Whether a patient is a candidate for implants will depend on how much bone density they have left in their jawbone. In order for the implants to be successfully inserted deep into the bone, they will need a strong foundation to anchor them into position.
In some cases, a patient who has significant damage to their teeth may need up to 8 dental implants on the upper and lower arches. This may not be possible if they have suffered significant bone loss and lack the density to stabilise this amount of implants.
Dentures are removable sets of prosthetic teeth. Not only can they look unnatural and slip out when you eat, dentures can actually speed up bone loss as they exert a certain amount of pressure onto the gums when you wear them.
When a patient receives an All On 4 treatment, they are given a full arch restoration with just four implants. The All On 4 procedure can insert posts at a precise angle for a more secure fit that eliminates the need for unnecessary additional implants. This is great news for those who have significant bone loss as it means they may still be a candidate for All On 4 dental implants.
The four implants form a solid foundation for a full dental bridge and act as a tooth root that reconnects your missing teeth to your jawbone. Not only does this help to prevent future bone loss, it will greatly improve gum health, too.
Our Teeth Restorations Look And Feel Like The Real Thing!
When you get a full arch restoration from us, you can be sure that no-one will be able to tell the difference. That’s because we use state-of-the-art CEREC dentistry to create and fit you with your new prosthetic teeth. The use of ceramic for restoration work is hugely beneficial to the patient. It’s safe, strong and highly durable. It can also be easily matched to the colour of natural teeth for a realistic appearance.
With the power of digital equipment, your ceramic dental prosthetics can be milled and moulded while you watch before being fitted into place the same day.
How Much Does An All On 4 Cost?
All On 4 dental implants are considerably cheaper than regular implants as you need less of them. The total cost of the procedure will greatly depend on your individual situation. This will be discussed during your initial consultation with one of our highly-trained dentists after they have reviewed your scans and determined the best course of action for you.
We understand that financing your dental work can be difficult. That’s why we offer multiple payment methods to make things easier. Our payment plans provide a stress-free solution to financing the expense of your dental treatments at StarKlinics.
