VIDEO: Step-by-Step Guided Implant Placement Procedure

If someone has lost all their teeth, South Coast Dentists recommends all-on-4 implants as a long-lasting, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing replacement option. If you are not happy with the fit or aesthetics of your removable complete dentures, all-on-4 implants allow you to enjoy a beautiful and lasting smile with fully restored dental function.

What is The All-on-4 Treatment?

The all-on-4 implant system comprises a complete fixed bridge supported by only 4 implants in each jaw placed at strategic locations. You can consider the fixed bridge in all-on-4 implants as a complete denture. However, the only difference is that a complete denture rests on oral soft tissues and the underlying jawbone. On the other hand, an all-on-4 prosthesis is implant-supported, meaning that the denture rests on dental implants instead of natural teeth.

Who Can Benefit from All-on-4 Dental Implants?

If you have lost all your teeth, then you are a candidate for all-on-4 implants. However, an essential requirement for getting an implant-supported prosthesis is that one should have a healthy jawbone that can firmly anchor the implants. But there is no need to worry if you don’t have sufficient jawbone available. Our implant dentists in Nowra NSW will perform a procedure called bone grafting to restore optimal bone density. 

How Do All-on-4 Implants Work?

The concept of replacing all missing teeth in a jaw with an all-on-4 appliance depends on placing 4 implants at strategic locations in each jaw. Two implants are placed at the front while the other two are tilted and placed in the middle. The reason for placing two implants in the middle is to avoid the soft bone at the back, especially in the lower jaw. This way, the four implants provide a robust foundation for the complete fixed bridge attached to them. 

The implants contain a special mechanism that allows specially designed attachments in a complete bridge to get interlocked with the attachments on the implants. This way, when the prosthesis gets firmly locked, the implants prevent unwanted movements and dislodging. So, an all-on-4 prosthesis will allow you to eat and speak without difficulty.

What is the Procedure for Getting All-on-4 Implants?

The procedure for tooth replacement with all-on-4 implants is carried out in multiple steps:

  • Consultation – during your first visit, our dentist Nowra NSW will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums and ascertain your oral hygiene status. They will also examine the x-ray images and digital study models of your teeth to prepare a customised treatment plan. At this stage, they will also ascertain whether there is any need for additional procedures such as bone grafting or ridge augmentation. 
  • Implant Surgical Procedure – during the next appointment, your best dentist Nowra NSW will insert the implants in your jawbone. First, your dentist will administer local anaesthesia to ensure pain relief, followed by exposing the underlying bone. Next, they will drill holes in the bone at pre-determined locations and carefully screw in the implants. Once the implants are in position, healing collars will be placed over them to ensure optimal healing. 
  • The Restorative Phase – the implant surgery site will be left undisturbed for 4 – 6 months to promote healing. Once the site has healed properly, your dentist Nowra will attach the complete fixed bridge on them to replace your missing teeth. 

That’s it. Say hello to your brand-new smile with all-on-4 implants.
