All on 4 Implants – What Are The Benefits?

Posted in: Blog,by aesthetique, on 1st October 2021 | 0 comments

A recent study by Chemist4U has shown that 6% of the nation’s population are ‘edentate’, meaning they have no teeth at all, so it’s no wonder that there are approximately 11 million denture users in the UK. Dentures can be ill-fitting, uncomfortable and inconvenient causing wearers to feel insecure about their smile and the way they talk. Many choose to go completely toothless over dentures due to irritation, but this can be detrimental to your jawbone as well as the tissue. All on 4 implants is a revolutionary treatment to provide you with a set of realistic teeth fitted within a day.

What are All on 4 Implants?

All on 4 dental implants can provide you with a complete set of fully functioning fixed teeth fitted in one sitting. Ideal candidates for this treatment are:

  • Those who suffer from loose, ill-fitting dentures
  • People with missing teeth
  • People who suffer with bone loss and cannot have dental implants
  • Patients who have been informed they require bone grafting for implants
  • Those who have failing bridges and crowns

What are the benefits of All on 4 Implants?

With teeth fixed in as little as one day and minimal recovery time, it’s not hard to see why All on 4 implants are a popular choice for people who are missing multiple teeth. The cost of All on 4 implants are lower due to faster treatment time than traditional practises. More practical advantages consist of the ability to eat all types of food and to do so with confidence. With All on 4 implants, your oral health and hygiene are improved as you can clean your teeth as you would with natural teeth.

As a result of the dental implants fused to your jaw, your jawbone will not weaken and deteriorate over time which can cause a sunken appearance in the face. This will also strengthen your facial muscles, meaning you will not be restricted as to what you eat or how you can speak.

What is the process of All on 4 Implants?

Before treatment starts, you will be required to have several x-rays and occasionally a CT scan. Once the planning stage is complete, the fitting itself can take as little time as one day.

The technique here at Aesthetique Dental Care utilises the bone at the front of the jaw to place four implants. A provisional set of teeth are then attached, meaning you can eat and smile instantly. The teeth can be adjusted to give a bespoke appearance that you are happy with. The temporary teeth allows 3-6 months of healing time, where the implants fuse to the jawbone. After the healing process has taken place, the final set of teeth are constructed and fitted.

At Aesthetique Dental Care, we realise that everyone’s mouth is unique and therefore there are several options available to provide you with teeth in a day. Once a full assessment has been conducted, we will be able to provide you with an exact quote of treatment costs, however, it usually ranges from £12,000 – £14,000 for a placement of 4-6 implants and a fixed set of teeth (upper or lower).
