All-on-4™ Implants - Beautiful teeth in just one visit
Get your teeth back…get your life back!
As people live longer and more active lives, losing even a single tooth prematurely can be extremely upsetting. The loss of any tooth is a cosmetic issue but it is also a quality of life issue and perhaps, most dramatically when losing too many, it may become a long-term health issue. When one or more teeth are lost, the surrounding jaw bone atrophies, or shrinks, due to a lack of function and physiologic stress.
Millions of people all over the world are missing all of their teeth and millions more are in jeopardy of losing their remaining teeth in the very near future. Accidents, gum disease, tooth decay and many other factors cause tooth loss. As we age, the chances of losing teeth increase dramatically. Taking steps to replace lost teeth and prevent bone atrophy in the jaws is critical to both long-term health and quality of life.
For those who are looking to lead a full and active life, traditional dentures and removable bridgework, once the only choices, are no longer viewed as satisfactory options. That’s why ELMFIELD HOUSE DENTAL PRACTICE specializes in All-on-4TM a revolutionary method for using as few as four dental implants to create fixed (non-removable), natural looking teeth in just one visit!
Titanium dental implants represent a major advance in dental care. Implants are inserted directly into the jawbone in a minimally invasive surgical procedure.
Because they are made of titanium - which is biocompatible (i.e., not rejected by the human body) dental implants integrate, or fuse with the bone, providing a solution that lasts for decades. A single implant can support a crown and replace a lost tooth. With the All-on-4TM technique four implants accurately placed can be used to replace all your upper and/or lower teeth. The result is a fixed (non-removable) bridge that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Just as important, implants stabilize bone levels in the jaw. So not only are they cosmetically pleasing and more natural, they also help preserve oral health and a youthful appearance.
What is All-on-4™?
All-on-4™ is a revolutionary approach to implants pioneered over a decade ago. Placing a titanium implant in the jaw is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that provides a strong foundation for replacement teeth and helps stabilize bone levels-keeping the jaw healthy. But for patients who lack bone mass, placing only four implants, tilting the two posterior ones, so even those patients with virtually no bone can have a secure (non-removable) full upper and/or lower set of teeth.
1. Insertion of implants
2. Securing of multi-unit abutments
3. Securing of provisional prosthesis with prosthetic screws
For most people, dental implants are the best solution for the loss of teeth, but not all patients are candidates for traditional implants. Patients who lack sufficient bone mass may have been discouraged from implants or told they need to undergo time-consuming, painful and costly bone grafting procedures prior to placing dental implants.
With the All-on-4TM technique, virtually anyone can have beautiful new teeth in a single visit - even if you have been told you are not a candidate for traditional dental implants or are lacking enough bone for implants.
Thousands of patients worldwide have benefited from this technique. ELMFIELD HOUSE DENTAL PRACTICE has established itself as a leading center in the UK for patient-care, education and training in advanced oral rehabilitation.
