All-on-four dental implants
Dental implants are a popular option where there are one or more missing teeth, but where severe tooth loss has occurred, there’s a much higher risk of bone loss too, and that’s where all-on-four dental implants can help.
Unlike traditional dental implants which go into the jawbone and can be used to replace a single missing tooth, all-on-four implants can replace a full arch of teeth using only two implants, so less bone structure is required.
If you’re missing most of your natural teeth, you can replace your whole upper and lower sets with brand new long-lasting fixed teeth using just four dental implants, with a prosthesis able to hold anywhere between 10 and 14 teeth.
What is the all-on-four implant procedure?
Most of the patients who come to us for dental implants suffer from several missing teeth and struggle with either ill-fitting dentures or a failing dental bridge. In these cases, a lot of bone deterioration has already taken place, making regular dental implants feel impossible. All-on-four dental implants get around this common issue, using just four implants and an implant-supported bridge to replace multiple missing teeth.
Although all-on-four dental implants require fewer implants, they are just as strong, durable and long-lasting as normal implants, and can even prevent further bone loss from occurring.
