All-On-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants, also known as “teeth in a day” or “full arch dental implants,” are a revolutionary solution for individuals with multiple missing teeth or those who are looking to replace a full arch of teeth. This innovative dental technique allows patients to receive a fully restored smile in just one day.
The All-on-4 technique involves securing a custom-made prosthetic arch (denture) onto four strategically placed dental implants per arch, effectively replacing an entire upper or lower set of teeth. These implants serve as stable anchors for the denture, providing exceptional strength and stability.

The Procedure

Step 1: Comprehensive Examination and Treatment Planning

The journey to a new smile with All-on-4 dental implants begins with a comprehensive examination at Dulwich Dental Office. Our experienced implant surgeon will assess your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and take X-rays and impressions where needed to create a personalized treatment plan.

Step 2: Implant Placement

Preparation and Assessment:

On the day of the procedure, you will be provided with local anesthesia to numb the surgical area, ensuring that you experience minimal discomfort during the surgery. If you have chosen sedation dentistry options, such as intravenous (IV) sedation or oral sedation, these will be administered to keep you relaxed and anxiety-free throughout the procedure.
The key to the All-on-4 procedure is the strategic placement of four dental implants for each arch (either upper or lower). These implants are made of biocompatible materials, usually titanium. The surgical team at Dulwich Dental Office will precisely place these implants in the jawbone.

  • Anterior Implants: Two implants are placed towards the front of the arch, where the bone density is typically higher. This positioning provides immediate stability and support for the front teeth.
  • Posterior Implants: The remaining two implants are positioned at an angle towards the rear of the arch. This angulation maximizes contact with the available bone, allowing for secure anchoring of the entire prosthesis.

Following implant placement, you’ll receive a temporary set of teeth that will allow you to smile and eat with confidence while your implants integrate with your jawbone. This temporary restoration is designed to look and function like natural teeth.

Healing and Osseointegration

Over the next few months, the implants will naturally fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This ensures the stability and longevity of your All-on-4 dental implants.
Once the integration process is complete, you’ll return to Dulwich Dental Office to receive your final, custom-crafted set of teeth. These permanent restorations are designed to fit comfortably and provide the appearance and functionality of natural teeth.

Unlike traditional dentures, All-on-4 implants are securely anchored in your jawbone, providing greater stability and eliminating the need for adhesives. They feel and function more like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

The All-on-4 procedure is suitable for many individuals, even those with low bone density. However, a thorough evaluation by our dental team at Dulwich Dental Office is necessary to determine your eligibility. Bone grafting may be recommended in cases of severe bone loss.

While the precise duration can vary depending on individual cases, the All-on-4 procedure typically allows you to leave our office with a temporary set of teeth on the same day as implant placement. The entire process, from initial consultation to receiving your final restoration, can take a few months.

Recovery from the All-on-4 procedure is generally quicker and less uncomfortable compared to traditional implant surgeries. Any post-operative discomfort can often be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a few days.

With proper care and regular check-ups at Dulwich Dental Office, All-on-4 dental implants can last a lifetime. They are known for their durability and longevity, making them an excellent investment in your oral health.

Yes, the final prosthetic arch attached to your All-on-4 implants is custom-crafted to match the appearance of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking smile that enhances your facial aesthetics.

The Dentist, Hygienist, Dental Nurses & Especially the Receptionist staff are very Polite, Friendly & most importantly they try to fit you in quickly in the event of an emergency. Recently I couldn’t get the time of work for an emergency appointment for my 81 year old Mum so I called an Uber for her & told the receptionist this. The young Black Lady called me when she ordered & place my Mother in a cab – so she went above & beyond her duties with a lot of Customer Care & Respect for my Mother- Thank You so much

Zehra M.

Great service! Im usually so nervous when coming in to the dentist but my dentist was so pleasant and polite ! Dulwich Dental Office will definitely be my dentist for life

Tomike O.

I lost my two front teeth whilst at school and had complications for years. Unfortunately I ended up needing an implant – which I had been avoiding! I wish I had done it sooner. Dr Patel was fantastic and guided me through each stage. He was always contactable to answer any queries or concerns. Very happy with the end result and would reccomend.

Tom O.

Registered and seen on the NHS within 2 weeks – amazing. Really friendly staff, would definitely recommend

Tom C.

I have recently finished an invisalign program with Pooja at dulwich dental office and couldn’t be happier. The treatment was easy and pain free and the results are great. Pooja’s experience and friendliness made me feel at ease throughout. I would 100% recommend for anyone considering similar treatment.

Toby B.

A great surgery; Dr Cavan in particular spent time with me to make sure my new night guards fitted well and were up to the job

Dentist Pooja Pillay is excellent and was very patient with me as I I took a long time (years!) deciding whether or not to take the plunge and have Invisalign to straighten my teeth. It didn’t take too long and was easier than I thought it would be. Pooja kept a close eye on how it was all progressing and we even went a bit longer with it just to really perfect the result. I’m delighted with the outcome. Everything was included in the price, even the extra aligners and appointments when we decided to go on a bit longer. All staff at the practice have been excellent. Highly recommend.

Susie F.

I had my Invisaligns done by Dr Pillay and she really took the time to make sure my teeth are lovely and straight. She has always been available with any queries or follow up treatment I needed – and made me feel well looked after from the beginning and end of the treatment. I really recommend seeing her if you want to get Invisaligns done.

Stella C.

Dr. Cavan is super attentive and thoughtful and great at putting is patients at ease. I hate going to the dentist but havent dreaded it once. Everyone is super friendly and clinic is nice. I could not recommend more.

I am undergoing a course of Invisalign treatment with Dulwich Dental Office and I am so pleased with the results, even at this early stage. It is great that I can take the braces out to eat and clean my teeth. I am looking forward to the end result.
