All on 4 Dental Implants in Coventry
A revolutionary new dental procedure called 'all on 4' has radically changed the way we view replacement of lost teeth.
The system, which provide a full arch of new teeth on a fixed bridge, can, in some cases be fitted in a single visit to our practice so providing a new set of teeth in just one day.
The 'all on 4' process, also referred to as "fast and fixed" uses four dental implants (hence its name) which form a firm anchor to permanently seat a fixed bridge. The implants used are quite special, particularly in that two of them are placed at carefully calculated angles to increase the strength and stability of the bridge.
Before treatment - clear top arch
Preparing the fixed bridge
After treatment - fixed bridge in place
The finished result - a new smile!
The advantages of all on 4 implants ("fast and fixed") versus traditional dentures
Whilst traditional dentures have improved significantly over the years and still provide a viable solution to address teeth loss, they are not as effective as a permanent fixed bridge secured with implants. The main benefits of the 'all on 4' treatment are:
- a rapid and permanent solution for extensive tooth loss
- allows you to eat a full range of foods, including those hard and sticky ones typically avoided by denture wearers
- can be suitable for patients who have suffered from bone loss and where standard implants may not be viable without bone grafting
- avoids the embarrassment and discomfort of loose dentures
- provide a very natural appearance which is almost indistinguishable from natural teeth
