If you have experienced the loss of multiple teeth or have had numerous teeth extracted, All on 4 or All on 6 give you the chance of having a full set of permanent teeth once again.
Gaps in the teeth or the loss of a row of teeth can make you look older, affecting your facial shape and altering the way you eat and speak. At TiggaSmile our dentists have trained in a unique and sophisticated implant procedure that can give you your smile back in just one visit.
This technique allows a number of implants to be embedded into the jaw bone all at once. These titanium screws act as the roots for your new prosthetic teeth which will be fitted directly onto the implants once the gums have healed.
Before you start this advanced dental implant treatment, we will need to ensure your jawbone is of good quality and will hold the multiple titanium screws. We may need to take x-rays or a 3D Cone Beam CT scan.
The initial stages of All on 4 and All on 6 take a lot of planning and careful consideration. These are considered highly technical dental procedures and we are experienced and skilled at performing these techniques. Once the treatment process begins, a number of implants will be embedded into the jaw via a series of tiny incisions in the gum. While the jaw heals and the bone regenerates, you will be fitted with a temporary set of teeth which we will ensure look as natural as possible.
Implants can last for a lifetime, just like your natural teeth should. You will need to care for them properly and maintain a good oral care routine.
The dentist will advise on what treatment best fits your individual case. Often implants are preferred over bridgework as no preparatory work is required to the surrounding teeth.
To prevent any bone atrophy, it is recommended you start the implant procedure as soon as you lose your natural tooth. If a natural tooth has to be extracted we can incorporate this into your individual treatment plan.
