If you have uncomfortable dentures then replacing them with natural looking, permanently fixed and functioning teeth sounds like the solution you need. The ALL-ON-4 procedure could be the solution you’re looking for. It is a full-arch solution on four implants.
This procedure has earned the nickname ‘teeth in a day or smile in a day’.

The ALL-ON-4 treatment concept is a cost-efficient solution. With proper care and good oral hygiene habits, the prosthesis that is attached to All-ON-4 implants should last at least 10 to 15 years.
The initial step is a consultation; during this consultation, we will examine your mouth and take x-rays. A CT scan may also be required to enable the dentist to determine your suitability for this treatment. In one visit a fixed bridge will be attached to your dental implants. Having ALL-ON-4 implants allow the whole upperor lower jaw of teeth to be attached to them.
Sometimes teeth need to be extracted before your implants are inserted. If this is required, it would be done on the same day as the implants. If required, remaining teeth are extracted on surgery, and 4-6 implants are placed. Usually, six implants placed in the upper arch, with four in the lower arch.
The ALL-ON-4 process is a significant improvement on traditional implant procedures. These procedures often take six months or more to complete, with extensive recovery time at each step of the process.
Your dentist will discuss alternative treatment options before committing to the ALL-ON-4 treatment process.

On the same day an implant-retained bridge will be fitted, meaning you will then leave the practice with your ‘new smile.
A permanent bridge will then be fitted to the implants in around 6-9 months, following the surgery and when proper bone integration has taken place. Our knowledgeable team will give full aftercare advice.
