All-On-4 Implants

What are All-On-4 Implants?


What if you could have a brand new smile in just over a few months? All-On-4 Implants at Wyndham Dental are an ideal solution for patients with multiple missing or damaged teeth.

Unlike removable dental appliances like dentures, All-On-4 Implants allow you to restore your teeth with permanent and fixed dental prostheses which are fixed to your upper/lower jar resting on four dental implants that mimic the root of your tooth.

All-On-4 Dental Implants are designed to look, feel and function just like your natural tooth making it a great way to restore your smile while boosting your confidence.

Can I Get All-On-4 Implants?


The ideal candidates for All-on-4 treatment have multiple severely damaged/decayed teeth or missing teeth in need of replacement. Dental implants often need bone-grafting surgery to have enough bone density to support the treatment, but this procedure can most likely be skipped with All-On-4 Implants. This method is also an option for patients who have health conditions preventing them from getting implants. For candidates who only need a single or few teeth replaced, we recommend alternatives such as implants, dentures or a dental bridge.

 


The All-On-4 Process of Restoring Your Smile


  1. During your initial consultation, our experienced dentists assess your eligibility for All-On-4 implants with a thorough assessment of your oral health and then create a customised treatment plan.
  2. Four titanium implants will be placed into your jawbone and we will take impressions of your teeth to create a provisional bridge.
  3. The provisional bridge will stay in place for 4-6 months until your dental implants heal.
  4. Once your implants have fully healed, your custom-made set of prosthetic teeth made with premium materials will be placed on your implants.
  5. Enjoy your new smile!

 


What are the Advantages of All-On-4 Implants?


There are several advantages to choosing All-On-4 implants that directly impact your oral health and indirectly some other areas of your life too!

  1. Prevents bone loss– One of the most dangerous side-effects of missing teeth is bone loss and degradation. This can lead to further tooth loss, misalignment, facial pain and difficulty maintaining dental restorations. All-On-4 gives stronger dental support and inserts much-needed pressure on the jawbone to prevent this.
  2. Reduced recovery time– Compared to other treatments that can take up to a year, All-On-4 has a significantly shorter treatment and recovery time since its implants can be secured to the existing jawbone, which takes away the need for a bone graft. Treatment takes a matter of days to complete.
  3. Easier maintenance– Caring for All-On-4 teeth is far easier than dentures. This treatment simply requires regular brushing and flossing, alongside 6-month checkups at our practice to ensure your new teeth last as long as possible!
  4. Permanent– This is a permanent, fixed solution that doesn’t require multiple adjustments and fitting sessions at the practice, making it a more convenient treatment for our patients.

What is The Difference Between Implants, Dentures & All-On-4?


Choosing individual dental implants to replace an entire set of teeth will involve many months of healing before dentures or crowns can be fitted in. All-On-4 implants require fewer implants so recovery time is drastically reduced.

Dentures are removable dental products that require regular maintenance and proper cleaning, as well as re-fitting every few years. With All-On-4 treatment, patients get a permanent solution that is fixed in place and is quite similar to taking care of their natural teeth.
