All-on-Four/All-on-Six Same Day Teeth

Same Day Teeth

All-on-Four and All-on-Six Same Day Teeth procedures offer the very real and exciting possibility of leaving our practice with a full set of sparkling new teeth in just one appointment.

A revolutionary dental treatment to reconstruct your teeth and smile.

All-on-Four is a popular, effective and efficient treatment method amongst many of our loyal and new patients.

Also known as same-day teeth, the all-on-four solution offers the exciting possibility of entering our practice with dental concerns and leaving with a mouth full of sparkling new teeth and a weight lifted off your shoulders – in just one appointment.

What is All-on-Four?

“There are around 11 million denture wearers in the UK” – BHF

So many denture wearers in the UK are unhappy with how their dentures look and operate.

All-on-Four has become a popular treatment as it offers an alternative to traditional dentures.

This dental treatment is used to help replace teeth and restore the smile of those who are missing teeth in one or both jaws.

The All-on-Four treatment is a prosthodontic procedure (e.g. replacing missing teeth) that provides a permanent fixed teeth solution rather than removable dentures.

What does the treatment entail?

The procedure involves initially placing implants into the jaw, then attaching a fixed bridge to these implants.

The treatment is referred to as ‘all on’ because the bridge is attached to 4, 6 or 8 implants.

This number of implants used is dependent on the specific needs of the patient, though 4 implants are used most commonly.

Your dentist will help decide which option is best for you. Usually, the more implants that are used, the stronger and more stable the teeth become as pressure is distributed more evenly amongst the implants and as a result the jaw.

The benefit of using a bridge means that there is no need for an implant for every missing tooth. This makes the procedure quicker and less complicated than if single implants were required for all missing teeth.

Who is All-on-Four suitable for?

If you have lost a number of teeth (in either your upper or lower jaw) your dentist may recommend the ‘Teeth Now’ treatment.

It is highly effective, time-efficient and becoming an increasingly popular option.

“Really happy with my experience at GD, Ali a great dentist and really cares about his customers.” – Jason G.

Why do patients choose Same-Day Teeth over dentures?

  • A stable fixed solution, compared to removable dentures which may move.
  • Rehabilitation can be carried out on a small amount of bone tissue and does not require augmentation – this means a minor surgical procedure so it is a low invasive method.
  • No removable prosthesis is required.
  • Provides a natural look and a beautiful smile.
  • Stable, strong biting power just like natural teeth.
  • The procedure has advanced since older treatments that required more implants.
  • All-on-Four requires less healing time because fewer implants are required.
  • Durable and reliable: a 2018 study showed a 98% success rate 5-13 years after treatment out of 200 participants surveyed.

Are there any negatives?

The ‘all-on’ treatment has an extremely high success rate and often lasts up to 10 years.

However, like all procedures, there are some factors that can increase risks or lead to failures.

Thankfully, most of these issues are avoidable with care from the patient:

  • Smoking
  • Drinking heavily
  • Not following post-treatment instructions

Teeth Now/All-on-F are a popular alternative solution for patients who need to replace missing teeth and currently wear denturesProcedure steps and aftercare

There are also certain medical conditions, including diabetes, that may impact the success and lifespan of your implants.

We will assess all of these risk factors in detail with you during your consultation so we only proceed with treatment in cases we are sure it will be successful. Here are our steps:

1. Consultation and preparation

At The Gentle Dental, we offer free consultation meetings.

Here you can meet with one of the experienced members of our talented team of dentists and consultants, and discuss your dental issues and analyse the best treatment solutions.

If you are new to our practice, we will use this opportunity to get a clear picture of your dental history, oral health and specific needs and requirements.

We can also discuss if you have any dental anxieties or phobias, as our main goal is to make any future treatments as comfortable as possible for you.

If we decide that All-on-Four treatment is the best solution, and you are happy to move forward with this, then we will carry out a CT scan to determine the best position for the implants.

We will use the information we gain from this scan to create a personalised treatment plan for you.

2. Implantation procedure

After your consultation, we will finalise a date for the implantation appointment.

The implants are inserted into the jaw and retained using small screws. We will insert 4, 6 or 8 implants dependent on your specific needs and requirements.

Usually, the back implants are angled approximately 30 to 45 degrees from the biting plane.

We place the implant in front of the maxillary sinus in the upper jaw (maxilla) and in front of the mental nerve in the lower jaw (mandible).

The positioning and angle of the implants also reduce the need for sufficient bone density in the jaw.

That means patients who may have been unsuitable for single-tooth dental implants in the past could well be good candidates for an All-on-Four or All-on-Six procedure.

Unlike single-tooth implants, there is no need to wait for the implants to fuse with the bone in your jaw when undergoing the same day teeth treatment.

These procedures are ideal for patients who have very few natural teeth remaining or currently denture wearers but are looking for a more stable, comfortable solution.

During the treatment, it is possible to use a local anaesthetic to reduce discomfort if you would prefer.

3. Bridge attached

In most cases, a bridge is attached to the implants on the same day as implant placement.

A couple of days after the implants have been inserted, the bridge is attached to the implants

. Though this is a temporary bridge, it allows you to smile confidently, eat normally and chew heavily food.

Around 3 months post-implantation, the temporary teeth are exchanged for your final, permanent bridge.

4. Aftercare

Replace Missing Teeth With All-On-4 Implants At Our Practice in East Molesey. Book A Free Consultation TodayDuring your treatment, your dentist will provide you with all of the aftercare treatment you need, and you are always welcome to contact us with any issues you feel you are not fully confident about.

The most important things to remember is to keep up an effective oral hygiene routine. Brushing twice a day is essential.

Use a good quality, soft-bristled manual or electric toothbrush and give all of your natural teeth and the bridge a good brush for 2 to 3 minutes.

Generally, it is recommended you return for a check-up every 6 months and have a dental hygiene treatment to make sure your mouth remains healthy.

How much do Same-Day Implants cost?

The All-on-Four treatment is not only the least invasive and time-consuming treatment option for restoring your smile.

But it is also often one of the least expensive in comparison to conventional implant options.

This is because we can complete the treatment with just four implants.
