All-on-4

All-on-4 Sydney, Crows Nest & Bella Vista

The ‘All-on-4’ treatment concept is a term used for technology originally invented by implant manufacturer, ‘Nobel Biocare.’ In short, it means that ‘all’ teeth can be supported on ‘four’ dental implants. Used as a cost-efficient, minimally invasive, graftless solution, it offers patients a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery, which supports all artificial teeth with just four implants placed in the upper or lower jaw.
Patients who opt to have All-on-4 implanted tend to be:
N
Those who are unable to chew their food properly;
N
Those who are looking for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
N
Those who have lost their teeth due to trauma, disease or genetics;
N
Those who want a more permanent solution than dentures or false teeth; and

The Process

 

During your consultation at Oralux Dental, your dentist will discuss what All-on-4 implants entail, including how they’re measured, fitted and what the final result will look like. We will collect data and replicate your mouth using photos, scans and 3D imaging technology.

Once you are confident with the final model and happy to go ahead, we will place the four dental implants and deliver the temporary teeth the same day, giving you something to chew with over the next four to six-month healing period. During that time, the implants will settle into your bone through the osseointegration process. The final teeth will be made of stronger materials and provide a better aesthetic result, which we will connect to the healed implants.

Maintenance

 

Maintaining your All-on-4 implants requires good oral hygiene first and foremost. You will be given special instructions about how to clean around the surgical area to avoid infections, and also how to use special mouth rinse while your implants heal. Cold packs help to reduce swelling, while painkillers will be prescribed to help ease any discomfort post-surgery. If needed, antibiotics will be prescribed to further aid healing and prevent infections.

Once the permanent fixtures are embedded, maintenance requires brushing twice a day and flossing with a special soft toothpick to remove any debris beneath the gum line. This routine will ensure your implants remain in top condition, are pain free, and avoid any issues associated with poor cleaning habits or gum disease.

Benefits

 

The main benefit of the All-on-4 procedure is the restoration of your teeth and jaw function. Patients are able to chew without fear of their dentures or false teeth falling out. They can also enjoy greater peace of mind due to how All-on-4 implants are the closest you can get to natural teeth. This is because of how they are embedded into the bone, which in turn stimulates your own bone cells to grow around the implants and further encourage their ‘acceptance,’ which eventually secures and stabilises them.

All-on-4 implants with teeth attached are known as ‘fixed prostheses,’ and they stay in your mouth without the need to take them out like dentures, which results in a greater aesthetic outcome. Your smile won’t just be as good as new, it may be even better than the one you had before.

Other benefits:
Proper chewing function
Less invasive treatment
Immediate teeth at the time of surgery
All-on-4 implants are the least costly option when compared to traditional multiple implants
Patients report an instant improvement in their quality of life, especially in terms of function, aesthetic, speech and self-esteem

Risks

 

All-on-4 implants are fitted using a surgical procedure, and like all surgical procedures, they come with a standard set of risks. These can include:

s
Excessive bleeding and nerve injury during the procedure
s
Post-operative infection if care isn’t taken to keep the area clean
s

Mechanical failure and peri-implantitis (destructive inflammation)

s
Failure of the osseointegration process (which can happen within the first six months)
Well placed All-on-4 implants will last a lifetime, with the aforementioned complications extremely rare as long as:
l
You maintain healthy oral tissue
l
You have well-fitted implants from a skilled practitioner
l
The biomechanical loads were correctly evaluated before your surgery
Other risks you need to be aware of are:
Tooth grinding (parafunction), which can affect the integrity of the implants and wear them down over time; and
Any auto-immune and other bone disorders with medications that can affect the bone and overall health of the mouth
We always recommend that you have a thorough consultation and discuss all possible risks prior to any surgery. At Oralux Dental, our qualified and experienced practitioners will be ready to answer any questions you may have throughout your implant journey.
