The perfect solution for patients missing all or most of their teeth, or with teeth in very poor condition (terminal dentition). Full Arch Dental Implant Rehabilitation is the basic term used to describe all the above treatments. The fundamental difference between each of these treatments is the brand of implant being used.These treatments replace significantly decayed, worn down and missing teeth with a fixed, lasting option, using four or more implants in the jaw being treated to attach a full arch of natural-looking replacement teeth.
All on Implants are a type of full mouth dental implant treatment. The treatment works by placing 4 or more dental implant posts securely into your jaw, and attaching a full set of prosthetic teeth to them. Using implants ensures the replacement teeth are secure in the bone and long lasting, providing almost the same function and feel as healthy natural teeth.
All On Implants rely on osseointegration, which refers to the process of your natural bone growing and securing to the surface of the implant post. Osseointegration ensures the dental implants are maintained securely in your jaw and don’t move.
The All On Implants treatment has been developed to suit patients who are missing all or most of their teeth, or teeth that are significantly decayed and diseased. Full Arch Implants may also be a replacement option for those dissatisfied with their current dentures.
In many cases where patients have decayed teeth, they may also have lost bone in their jaws due to gum (periodontal) disease. Many patients are told that they are not suitable for implants, as the lack of residual bone means implants that are placed may not be effectively supported. However, All On Implants can be an appropriate option for these patients with bone loss, as the spread of implants at the front and back of the mouth allows the dentist to bypass and avoid placing implants in bone-deficient areas.
Importantly, patients do still require a minimum amount of bone to support the implants, and our team will undergo a close and thorough assessment of your bone and perform digital virtual planning of your treatment to ensure that your procedure will be well performed and safely completed. We also have a variety of other implant solutions if All On Implants are not
Prior to beginning any treatment, our team will go through a detailed analysis of your existing teeth, oral health, bone volume and density. This ensures that we only commence treatments that we have confidence will create a safe and lasting result. We use 3D digital scans of your teeth and bone to identify the best locations for the implant posts and create a virtual design of your prosthetic teeth and new smile.
The surgical treatment is most often completed under general anaesthetic and begins with removing any remaining teeth in the arch and preparing the jaw for the titanium implants. Once placed, it takes 1-2 days to fabricate your new teeth before they can be attached to the posts.
You may have some discomfort after the surgery, but pain-relief medication will help manage it. Once your treatment is completed, you can maintain your new teeth by brushing and cleaning them regularly, and adhering to a soft food and liquid diet for at least the first three months after surgery. This helps relieve the implants from excessive biting forces whilst they osseointegrate and ensures your new smile will last longer.
For those eligible to receive All On Implants, they offer a number of benefits and advantages over other full arch replacement treatments. Our full mouth implant procedure can be completed in just a couple of days, which is much shorter than other implant and denture treatments which can take a number of months to complete. The treatment also offers a full restoration of the dental arch in a solution that is not only strong and effective but also comfortable, in most cases feeling like solid natural teeth.
