If you wear dentures or have lost most of your teeth, All-on-4 could be the answer for you.
All-on-4 is a new procedure for replacing multiple teeth. This cost-effective, advanced technique supports a whole arch of teeth with just four implants. All-on-4 can be used in either the upper or lower jaw, or both, to support immediate fixed replacement teeth that look, feel and function similarly to natural teeth. And the best thing is that the entire process takes as little as one to three days.
How does it work?
In a nutshell, two implants are placed vertically in the front of the jaw, and two are placed in the back at an angle of up to 45 degrees. Tilting the back implants allows the required support for total rehabilitation – overcoming bone deficiencies and in most cases, avoiding the need for grafting procedures.
We then take impressions to craft your new teeth. These are prepared to the highest quality in our lab. Once ready, they are then permanently fixed to the implants. And that’s it! No more worries about coping with dentures. Your permanent new teeth look and function just like the real thing.
As an added bonus, your sense of taste is preserved, as the roof of the mouth is not covered with acrylic denture. And because we use only four implants, cleaning is much easier compared to conventional methods.
