What is an All-on-4 implant?

 

The “All-on-4” dental implants system offers you your 3rd set of fixed teeth that you have never had. It is an innovative method in which 4 dental implant fixtures (can be up to 6) are optimally and precisely placed into each jaw at one go. Within the same day, a bridge prosthesis can be fitted over each fixture, linking up to provide you a full set of fixed teeth.

All-on-4 is a scientifically proven oral rehabilitation technique for patients who wish to achieve a naturally beautiful smile with a fixed bridge on dental implants. All-on-4 works by placing two of the four implants at such an angle that the bridge is supported by the implants at the front of the mouth where the jaw bone is denser and stronger.

All surgical services at Nuffield Dental Jewel can be performed under Local Anaesthesia, General Anaesthesia or intravenous sedation. (as requested by nervous patients)

Our clinics offer comprehensive, quality dentistry and our dentists aim to deliver positive dental experiences to patients along with our experienced and dedicated team of nurses, receptionists and practice managers.

Who is this procedure for?

  • Patients who have missing, failing, or loose teeth
  • Complete full denture wearers (upper/ lower or both)
  • Partial denture wearers
  • Combination of the above
  • Patients unsatisfied with their current denture

Steps

  • We assess your suitability and availability of bone for case suitability
  • We arrange a CT scan or appropriate X-rays to assess your bone quality and quantity
  • Existing teeth in the required jaw are removed in a single surgical visit in the morning. A minimum of 4 dental implants are then placed immediately.
  • A full arch acrylic bridge is then attached in the afternoon to the 4 implants.
  • Your smile is restored on the SAME day.

What are the benefits of this implant?

Fixed

Fixed in your mouth 24/7, providing good stability and no need for routine removal (unlike with a denture). 


Natural

Near-perfect standards in simulating your own natural teeth in terms of feel, function (e.g. chewing food, speech), aesthetics, psychology, and maintenance.


Durable and Lifelong lasting

Once your “All-on-4” implant fixtures successfully fuse into your jawbone, they are said to last a lifetime. 


Single procedure within a single day

Solely 4 dental implants are needed per jaw, therefore these can all be fitted in a single procedure within a single day. This is very beneficial for nervous patients.


Straightforward and minimally invasive

Capitalistic on the fundamental principle that the jaw bone toward the front of your mouth is denser and stronger than that of the back, the furthest implant on each side is placed at an outward angle, with a backwards tilt. This avoids the need for additional implants or supplementary procedures e.g. bone grafting, which are more time-consuming, invasive, and costly.


Sedation and General Anaesthesia options available

If you feel that you may be considerably nervous about having “All-on-4” dental implants, do not worry, our team at Nuffield Dental can help you overcome this through a combination of relaxation techniques, IV Sedation or a General Anaesthesia at your request.

What are the costs?

All-on-4 Dental Implant Bridge includes a high-quality acrylic bridge which will be fitted on the same day as the implant surgery and a subsequent Malo Acrylic Bridge which will be made 4-6 months after the initial surgery.

What are the different materials used?

After surgery, all All-on-4 patients at Nuffield Dental Jewel will have an interim acrylic bridge fitted. This bridge is replaced after 4-6 months with a Malo Acrylic bridge that includes a titanium frame with acrylic teeth.

At our clinics offering this implant, we prefer either the Malo Acrylic Bridge (standard) or the MALO Ceramic Bridge (stellar) as the final All-on-4 restorative option as it has optimal aesthetics and durability.

During the process of making your final bridge, we will use wax teeth to confirm the size, shape of the teeth and your bite position. It is imperative at this stage that you also participate in the customisation of this wax teeth set up as this will form the basis of the Malo bridge that will be made via CAD/ CAM techniques.
