All Teeth On Four

at Sunbury, Gisborne & Diggers Rest

 
The All Teeth On Four dental system is a way to restore a series of missing teeth. Multiple missing teeth can cause multiple problems such as interfering with speech or difficulty chewing. The All Teeth On Four teeth replacement service helps fill in the gap and gives you confidence to flash a full and beautiful smile. But the benefits are more than aesthetic; these are comfortable on the gums and help prevent bone loss that can alter the shape of your face. That’s why, for many patients, it’s the best choice to replace missing teeth.

What is All Teeth On Four?

All Teeth On Four is a term used to describe when four dental implants are used to support a prosthesis to replace anywhere from 10 to 14 teeth. Implants are made of titanium and fixed into the densest part of the bone for superior support, and are a cost-effective approach to traditional dental implants. And most people find they are more comfortable and convenient than dentures. They are generally used for missing teeth off the front top and bottom arches.

Benefits of All Teeth On Four

 

This dental procedure is appealing for those who are missing multiple teeth and would prefer an effective yet low-maintenance option to costlier procedures. Here are just some of the benefits our patients love:

Can be an option for those with insufficient jawbone density for traditional dental implants

All work is completed in a week or less

They stay in place, unlike traditional dentures

They restore bite-force, meaning you can eat the way you would with your natural teeth

Oral hygiene and maintenance are the same as your natural teeth, so they are easier to take care of than traditional dentures

They last for decades

You get a comfortable and stable fit, so they feel like your natural teeth

They look great, especially if your previous teeth were severely damaged or missing

More cost effective than separate implants

They can slow or may even stop bone loss

Am I a Candidate for the All Teeth On Four Treatment?

 
The system is designed for people who have lost most or all of their teeth, especially on the front upper and lower arches. If you have experienced bone loss in the jaw, you may have been told that dental implants cannot be supported, but the All Teeth On Four treatment is different, so you may be a candidate.

This procedure requires less surgery and money than many individual implants, so if time or budget are a concern, this may be the option for you. When you come to visit, our gentle, experienced and caring team of professionals will do a full evaluation and go over all treatment options that are right for you. And don’t worry, they will discuss budget too, so you can be confident that you are getting the best procedure for your needs.

The Procedure

 

Knowing what to expect during your visit can ease any anxiety or concerns you may have about any dental procedure. The following are the steps you can expect when you decide the All Teeth On Four option is right for you:

During a dental exam, you will be evaluated for candidacy for the All Teeth On Four treatment, along with your overall dental health.
Once it is determined these are a good option for you, we will take any required x-rays and photos, which are sent to a lab.
The lab will create a replacement prosthesis to mimic the colour and style of your natural teeth.
You come back for your surgery, during which time we may remove more teeth, clean and prepare your gums and begin the implants. and don’t worry, we work with you to choose the best sedation option, so you are comfortable and relaxed during the entire process.

Recovery and Maintenance

 

You will need a few days to recover, as with any surgery. Each case is unique to the patient, so your team of gentle and compassionate dental professionals will have specific recommendations for your needs. But there are some general instructions that anyone can benefit from:

Have someone drop you off and pick you up the day of the procedure, as effects of sedation may take some time to wear off

Do not smoke, as it can interfere with recovery and increase the failure rate of implants

Do not drink through a straw

Avoid very hot food

Follow the specific diet you are given

Try to not blow your nose or sneeze with a lot of pressure; if you do, keep your mouth open to avoid pressure in the sinus area

Do not move lips to see the sutures as it could tear them

Take any prescribed medication as instructed

Get plenty of rest

There may be some swelling, which is normal. But, applying an ice pack on the side of your face with the swelling for 15 minutes at a time throughout the day can significantly help reduce it. After the first two days, a warm compress can ease swelling. Some patients may experience bruising, which is also temporary and normal.

Maintenance is also very unique and according to the patient’s specific procedure. But, in general, you will continue a daily oral hygiene routine and do your best to clean around the teeth. Most dentists recommend not removing the prosthesis for daily cleaning, as it can weaken the base. An exam every few months or once a year will allow your dental professional to do a thorough cleaning and catch any problems. Your doctor will go over the best maintenance care for your new prosthesis.
