All on 4 Implants – It’s all in a day’s work!

Posted in: Uncategorized, by aesthetique, on 23rd September 2020 | 0 comments

Yes, you heard that right, with the All-on-4™ system for replacing missing teeth, you can walk out of Aesthetique Dental Care in Leeds with brand new teeth in just one day!

All on 4, the revolutionary dental treatment, uses just four securely and strategically placed dental implants. The system is deemed revolutionary as it uses only four cleverly placed implants to support a whole arch of teeth. Regular dental implants would usually support a single crown, a dental bridge, or a set of dentures. However, 6-10 dental implants would be needed for a full arch. This clever system uses only four implants for a full arch of teeth!

All on 4 is so effective that even those people who have been told they don’t have enough bone mass for dental implants can benefit. Maybe you are one of those patients, where you have been advised that you don’t have enough bone mass to support implants or that you will need extensive bone grafting to make fitting them possible. Well, this is where All-on-4 comes in. It can be used by patients with hardly any bone mass and one of the other major benefits is you can get your brand-new teeth in just one day!

How does it work?

Before your treatment begins, we will provide you with some x-rays and occasionally a ct scan if necessary. This will determine the best course of treatment. The planning stages can take several weeks but then the actual fitting can take just one day. This speedy turnaround is why it is also sometimes known as ‘teeth in a day’ or ‘same day teeth’.

The four implants are placed in the dense bone in the front of the mouth. Two of the back implants are strategically angled towards the denser bone at the front of the jaw. This means surgery is normally not required. Once the implants are placed, a temporary set of teeth are fixed in place. These teeth are adjusted to provide the desired appearance and the healing process can begin. This healing process, (known as osseo-integration) takes 3-6 months where the implants fuse with the bone. Once this is complete, the final set of teeth are fitted, and you can say goodbye to those days of missing teeth.
