All on 4 implants (Same Day Teeth)
All on 4 or Same Day Teeth is a suitable treatment for those people who are missing most or all of their teeth and are looking for a permanent fixed solution.
The biggest advantage of this treatment option, and the reason for its growing popularity, is the ability to remove failing teeth, place dental implants and deliver a fixed replacement set of teeth, all in one day. Patients choosing this treatment don’t have to spend lengthy periods wearing removable dentures and often complete their treatments in much less time compared to alternative implant treatments.
We carefully plan your dental implant procedure using a CT scan. This gives us a clear 3D picture of your mouth and helps to identify the ideal positions to place your implants in your jaw. This is important so that we can get the best outcome both aesthetically and functionally.
Most implant procedures are carried out under local anaesthetic, however, you may choose to have sedation to feel more relaxed. We may also recommend sedation if the procedure is going to take longer than normal to ensure you’re totally comfortable.
On the day of the procedure, any remaining teeth are removed and implants placed. The exact number and position of the implants will vary, but as a general rule between 4 and 6 implants are needed in each jaw to support your new bridge. Once the implants are in place, a full arch of teeth is attached and secured in place. This new set of teeth is worn for about 3 months while the gums heal and bone knits around the implants. During this time we ask that you limit your diet to soft foods to protect your implants as they heal. We will also instruct you on the best way to look after your new teeth.
After this time a new set of teeth is constructed and this will be the final bridge. Once the treatment is complete it is essential that you return to see us regularly so that we can check the health of your implants and gums. We also recommend seeing our hygienists at least twice a year. We may also suggest removing the bridges periodically for cleaning.
