All on 4
Anyone with damaged or missing teeth or loose and poor fitting dentures will know that it can have a major impact on everything, from your smile and self-esteem, to how and what you eat.
The problem with popular options for replacing missing teeth such as dentures and bridges, is they are not permanent solutions.
The All-on-4 dental implant system is a revolutionary dental technique that offers a permanent solution to missing teeth. The treatment refers to supporting all teeth on just four implants, making them look, feel and function just like natural teeth. The procedure is particularly suitable for patients who may have missing, decayed or broken/chipped teeth.
So, what are All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants can support a whole arch of teeth using only four implants. This can be used on either the upper or lower jaw and immediately replaces missing teeth which not only look and feel similar to your natural teeth, but function normally also.

What to consider when choosing your All on 4 dentist:
Your dentist’s Experience
Experience may be the most important point on the list. Experience plays an important role when it comes to identifying if All on 4 in right for you and if the dentist can effectively complete the treatment plan.
Some questions to ask your dentist:
- How many implants they install every year?
- How long have they been practicing implant dentistry?
- How many patients they perform All-on-4 or other implant procedures on every month?
Qualifications and training

Dentists can take a short course, that runs over several days or they can take an intensive postgraduate course, that includes courses of clinical, theoretical, practical education, and a wide range of first-hand case experience.

Technology and innovation
With ever evolving changes in technology, equipment and techniques in the industry it is now more important than ever for your dentist to keep their finger on the pulse and for you to find out if your dentist is doing so.

Before getting the implant surgery dentists should be able to perform a 3D scan of your jaw, gums and teeth which ensures that extremely accurate measurements are made so that your new set of implants supported bridges will come out perfectly the first time around.
