The Treatment Stages 

Anchor 1

1. Consultation

  • A complimentary consultation is arranged at one of our clinics with an implantology dentist.

  • We initially assess your availability of bone for case suitability using an X-ray and we discuss your main concerns.

  • A CT scan is arranged or appropriate X-ray are taken to assess your bone quality and quantity. The implantology dentist is then able to confirm the final treatment plan.

2. Pre-Operative Stage

  • A Nuffield treatment coordinator will then speak to you and counsel you on the entire procedure and financial costs. After which, a deposit is paid.

  • Moulds of your mouth and shade of your current and planned teeth are taken.

3. Day of Surgery

  • You should eat up to 4 hours before the surgery.

  • Existing teeth in the required jaw are removed in a single surgical visit in the morning. A minimum of 4 dental implants are then placed immediately.

4. After Surgery

  • A full arch acrylic bridge is then attached in the afternoon to the 4 implants.

  • Your smile is restored on the same day.

5. Review Visits

  • You will be reviewed at the 1st week, 2nd week following surgery and then monthly till 8 weeks have elapsed especially to ascertain how you keep the All-on-4 bridge clean.

  • An X-ray will be taken to assess the healing of your implants at 8 weeks following the surgery.

Determine if you are able to benefit from the All-on-4 procedure or if you would be more suitable for another dental treatment.

What is All-on-4?

A full dental replacement, where an entire jaw of teeth is replaced, is the most challenging of dental reconstructions. 

 

The All-on-4 treatment simplifies this reconstruction by using 4-6 dental implants (straight or tilted), permitting the provision of immediate temporary fixed bridges for edentulous patients. This is carried out despite limited bone availability.

 

This protocol has become a popular procedure worldwide.
