What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a fixed and permanent replacement for missing teeth, the process can be completed in stages if necessary, or here at All on 4, we can offer same-day teeth to minimize the disruption to your life.
We have a range of dental implant options depending on your circumstances and dental health. Our dentists will complete a full assessment to ensure that the correct option is used and will give you a full explanation of the process throughout.
Your dental implants will be fixed into your jaw to ensure that there is no movement once the teeth are in place. The dental implant process is usually completed over several appointments to ensure that your mouth, gums, and jaw have time to adequately heal and for any swelling to go down before the final fitting of your new teeth.
Completing the process in this way gives the best outcome for the majority of implant options we offer.
How Long Does the Implant Process Take?
The length of time for the dental implant process will depend on which implant procedure you choose to have. We will always aim to complete the procedure as quickly as it is possible to do so. Before we begin your dental implants, we will provide you with an estimate of the length of time it will take.
When calculating the length of time for each procedure, we will factor in the dental implant healing time. The healing time will always be estimated as the average healing time, and we will thoroughly check the implant site before moving to the next step of the procedure to avoid infection.
Our dental implant process takes place in three steps; the initial consultation, where we will evaluate your current dental health. Next, we will create your treatment plan and thoroughly assess your options with you.
After you have chosen the treatment option that is right for you, we will begin the process of removing your current teeth, if needed. Finally, we will begin fitting the fixtures that your dental implants will be fitted onto. You will be sedated for all of the dental treatment.
All on 4 dental implants will give you a natural and straight smile, providing you follow all of our instructions fully and attend all appointments.
