What are all on 4 dental implants? 

All on 4 dental implants are a quick, safe and long-term solution in dental treatment for anyone whose self-confidence and quality of life are affected by missing teeth. All on 4 implants even work in people who have a lack of bone although some bone rebuilding is sometimes necessary. All on 4 implants are a fantastic dental treatment for people already wearing dentures and those who want to have fixed teeth again.

This treatment is achieved by using what is known as the all on 4 implants technique, with 6-8 implants in each jaw, depending on the individual needs of the patient. 

All on 4 dental implants procedure

    • Initial consultation and various planning appointments are required.
    • Detailed diagnostics including X-rays, CT scans, and dental impressions will be carried out to determine your bone structure and whether you need any extractions.
    • Four implants are inserted into the jaw so that they will completely fuse to the natural bone over time. A new fixed set of teeth (either bridgework or a fixed denture) will then be screwed onto dental implants, which have been put in place on the same day.
    • Initially, these are a provisional set of teeth that look and feel great. Later on in your treatment plan, they will be replaced with a more permanent set some months later.

With the all-on 4 procedure, a fixed denture replaces a full arch of missing teeth with only 4 dental implants.

If you don’t have any natural teeth left, or would like your few remaining teeth replaced with a more attractive and long-term solution, then this a great option for you, whether you opt for a fixed denture on All on 4 implants or fixed bridgework on 6-8 implants.

Benefits of All on 4 implants

Compared to alternative restorative treatments, some of which require bone grafting and numerous appointments, all on 4 dental implants offer a number of benefits:

    • High-quality full teeth restoration.
    • Particularly suitable for people wearing complete dentures or with few remaining teeth.
    • Fixed teeth are usually fitted in one day (same-day teeth).  
    • Considered less invasive and fast
    • A long-term solution. 
    • No need to avoid certain foods or worry about food getting trapped.
    • No painful friction between gums and dentures. 
    • The best natural-looking result that matches your existing teeth. 
    • Boost your confidence and facial appearance. 

Typical cost of all on 4 treatment 

Depending on the type of prosthesis, materials are chosen, and the requirements of the individual dental implant case; e.g. if bone rebuilding (bone grafting/augmentation) is required and to what extent, the dental implant costs range between £16,000-35,000 per jaw depending on the individual case.

Recovery time and aftercare

You must take good care of your implants, so regular dental appointments with your dental hygienist and a commitment to good home dental care are essential for long-term success.

In terms of recovery time, this also varies from patient to patient, but generally, patients can eat normally again within 3 to 4 days and medication can be prescribed for pain and swelling. If you require bone grafting, your recovery time can take a little longer, usually 3-4 weeks. Explore our detailed summary of dental implant recovery.

Why choose dental implants?

Dental implants will also allow you to enjoy improved chewing capabilities, as this type of implant functions in the same way as your natural teeth. All implants are made from strong and durable materials designed to complement your teeth’ natural shape and appearance.

Less than 5% of implants are unsuccessful. But even if this occurs, the process can be attempted again and will often be successful on the second try. If you’d like to know more about all-on-4 dental implants in Windsor, speak to our expert team today.

All-on-4 dental implants are promoted as a “long-term” solution for good reason! With proper care and upkeep, the implants should easily last for at least a decade and usually beyond, making them a great option for those who want to avoid repetitive, recurring procedures to fix their smiles. All you will need to do is attend occasional dental checkups (every six months is a common timeframe) to ensure everything is still in place, healthy and working properly.

While All-on-4 dental implants are an excellent solution for many people with tooth issues, they’re not suitable for everyone.
