All-On-4 dental implants are a revolutionary system that means a patient can replace all missing teeth on the top or bottom arch of their mouth. This advanced dental implant technology uses just four single implants to replace an entire arch of teeth, providing natural and long-lasting results.
Tooth loss is more common among adults than many people think. Tens of millions of people around the world currently live without all their upper and/or lower teeth.

How do All-On-4 dental implants in Manchesterwork?
Firstly, a digital scan of the mouth and jawbone will be required and those digital images will be used to determine the necessary location of the dental implants, which are made of titanium and surgically placed directly into the jawbone.
The implants will need time to fuse to the jawbone. Temporary replacement teeth will be attached to the implant abutment, which serves as a connector piece between the implant and the prosthetic teeth. The healing process typically takes around three months. During the first 6-8 weeks of the healing period, a soft diet that avoids hard, crunchy or chewy foods is recommended.
After the healing process, permanent replacement teeth will be placed. The replacement teeth are a single unit made that is made to look like individual teeth. The results are completely natural and beautiful, giving patients the smile they deserve.
All-On-4 is an ideal way to replace multiple missing teeth, providing a permanent, secure fit, unlike traditional dentures that may not to fit well for some patients.
