All on 4

in Wantirna

All-on-4® dental implant therapy is an advanced and innovative procedure used for smile rehabilitation. Consequently, it may also help improve the quality of life for our Wantirna patients with missing teeth who are currently wearing removable prosthetics. This also applies to patients with a degenerative dentition that has a poor prognosis.

With an All-on-4 implant procedure, you can gain the confidence of a fully-functioning smile without a removable prosthesis, such as full dentures. The unique process incorporates the latest dental implant technology, predictability, and support to provide full mouth reconstruction in a predictable and minimally-invasive manner.

What is All-on-4 Treatment?

The All-on-4 dental implant approach was developed over many years and was more a modification to implants rather than a new invention. Since 1990 experienced implant providers world wide delivered a solution for full mouth rejuvenation that allowed the use of strategically placed implants and a hybrid restoration in lieu of bulky dentures.

Because of the integrity of modern titanium dental implants and the angulation of placement in the posterior jaw, we can place them into weak or thin bone without compromising their supportive capabilities. As a result, you enjoy better biting and chewing forces and reinforce the structures that frame your facial profile.

The results give you a permanent new smile that’s easy to care for and outlasts other popular restorative procedures. The proven success rates ensure the best outcome for your oral health and appearance.

A New Smile in Just a Few Days

Most All-on-4 implant protocols require 1-3 days for completion, depending on the difficulty of your case. Because each of the four supporting implants are placed in selective locations, there is no or minimal bone grafting necessary (allowing for faster and gentler post-operative recovery.)

After your four implants are installed by one of our experienced Wantirna dentists, we will attach a permanent, full-arch hybrid restoration that spans the entire width of your smile. It will be attached the same day, or 1-2 days after the implant surgery.

This rather straightforward approach brings an invigorating alternative to care, for our patients who want a fixed alternative to removable dentures. All-on-4 treatments are not removable by the patient, instead, they’re a new and permanent part of your best accessory — your smile.

How Does it Work?

Using innovative implant strategies, we can place a full arch of teeth onto just four or more dental implants.

This rehabilitative method is useful for both upper and lower jaws, depending on your needs. Once completed, your new smile will look and feel as closely to a natural set of teeth as possible.

Thanks to fewer implants being needed (rather than one for each missing tooth,) All-on-4 is easier to clean and maintain while making the overall process as streamlined as possible.

Because our Wantirna dentists are able to strategically place each of the four implants, we can eliminate the need for additional or unnecessary surgeries, such as bone grafting or sinus lifts.

If you’ve lost all of your teeth or need to replace the ones you have, we encourage you to consider full arch rehabilitation with the innovative All-on-4 process.

What to Expect

What would you do to have an entirely new set of teeth in just a few days? Here’s what your general experience will look like:

1

Pre-op

Your preliminary appointment will include a thorough evaluation of your oral anatomy, a series of photographs, digital X-rays, and impressions of your mouth. We’ll need all of this information to map out and plan your treatment in order to ensure it’s successful as possible. During this visit we will answer any questions you have and schedule you to come back for the start of treatment, which is usually broken up into three separate visits.

2

Implant Placement

At this visit we will numb each area of your mouth where the implants are being installed, then create a small opening to set them into the bone. Implant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure with a relatively rapid recovery. After each of the four implants are installed, we take an impression of your mouth so that the lab can begin designing the teeth to go on top of them.

Although this visit can be completed with a small amount of local anesthetic, some people prefer to schedule the procedure under sedation or general anesthesia especially where more complex bony surgery or extensive extractions are required. We are happy to discuss your preferences to ensure the most relaxing experience possible.

Try In

Before crafting the permanent portion of your smile design, we’ll have a wax up model to give you a preview of what to expect. At this visit we can try in the mock up and make adjustments to anything as necessary (such as the shape and color of the teeth.This appointment will usually need to take place around 24-48 hours of having your implants installed.

Further we also do a further try-in of your waxed up bridge/s prior going to final completion.

We want you to be confident and happy with the design, so this added visit ensures you receive the most personalized experience possible. You will

know exactly what your new smile looks like before we craft the final version.

Delivery

The final prosthesis design is inserted and permanently attached on top of your implant abutments. As soon as this brief visit is completed, you’ll have an entirely new look!

Choosing the Best Implant Dentist

Some people seek out dental tourism facilities to keep the cost of their implant treatment as low as possible. However, there are some serious factors worth considering, such as the type of training received by the dentist, follow-up care, manufacturing standards, and success rates of the provider.

Our Wantirna dentists have over 25’years of experience guaranteeing quality care to patients from a diverse range of backgrounds. We’re committed to exceeding oral health standards and safety protocols to ensure our patients well-being at all times.
