What is all-on-4?

All-on-4 is a popular treatment for those that have lost all of their teeth over time. It involves applying a new set of teeth that rest on 4 dental implants to restore your smile. Compared to the traditional denture treatment, all-on-4 is both a stable and durable option to restore the aesthetic and function of your teeth.
This treatment allows for correct bite alignment, correct jaw positioning, speech improvement, fuller teeth and a brand new you. If you’re looking for a permanent solution, this is it. The team at Studio Smiles will be able to listen to your needs, talk you through the entire process and take the journey alongside you. This is just the first step to transforming your smile.

FAQs
How long do all-on-4 implants last?
+

Like most treatments, all-on-4 implants can be worn out and damaged. All-on-4 implants have the ability to last as long as 15-20 years, provided they’re taken care of in the right way and oral health is maintained on a consistent and regular basis.

What is the all-on-4 procedure?
+

The all-on-4 procedure is a treatment that gives you a durable, permanent solution to long-lasting teeth. It allows you to regain full function in your mouth and offers a more stable opportunity for teeth.

To begin, we examine your mouth. We’ll take x-rays and use 3D imagery to map out your all-on-4 journey and tailor your treatment to you. Before going ahead with any treatment, we’ll make sure that your mouth is fully prepared for dental implants. This involves removing any teeth necessary, cleaning any infected areas and preparing the jaw bone itself. Once we’ve talked you through all of your options and you’re happy with the solution, we’ll perform the treatment. We’ll numb your mouth with local heated anaesthetic, making sure you don’t feel a single thing before proceeding to fix the implants into the jaw. Any adjustments necessary will be made to make sure you get the most from your dental implants. Treatment will result in a set of fully-functioning teeth.

What are the benefits of all-on-4?
+

All-on-4 is a procedure that allows for a more durable, permanent solution to your smile. This itself brings many benefits to the recipient:

Fully restored and functioning teeth
You’ll instantly notice the difference in the overall function of your brand new teeth and have a new-found confidence in your ability to speak and eat. You’ll be able to finally enjoy all your favourite foods again.

Avoid any health issues
With all-on-4, you’re preventing any future risks to your health. You’ll be creating a healthy environment in your mouth, therefore avoiding any infections, inflammatory diseases and bone loss that may come your way otherwise. Restoring your smile gives you a greater opportunity for a healthy future.

What is the difference between all-on-4 and dentures?
+

While both treatments aim to restore teeth, there are some differences that can help you think about which solution may be better for you. The first difference is that dentures are removable while all-on-4 dental implants are a more permanent, long-lasting solution. Dentures, while mostly comfortable, may affect speech and the ability to chew certain foods while all-on-4 dental implants feel like another pair of natural teeth. Dentures need to be removed each day for cleaning while all-on-4 dental implants allow you to brush and floss your teeth like you regularly would. Dentures require 0 implants into the jaw while all-on-4 requires 4, like the name suggests. Ultimately, the treatment suitable for you will depend on your goals and what you want.

Is the all-on-4 procedure right for me?
+

Generally, the ideal all-on-4 candidate is someone with a healthy, strong jaw bone. However, to confirm whether all-on-4 is the right procedure for you, we’ll need to have one of our highly qualified dentists complete a further examination of your mouth. At this appointment, we’ll make sure you understand what the situation is, all of the options you have, any costs associated with any potential treatments and what the next best steps to take are. We’ll never go ahead with any treatment until we know that you’re completely onboard. We’re the experts in dental implants, so we’ll be able to address any concerns or questions you may have to make sure you are provided with the best possible treatment.
