Over the past few years, a dental implants procedure called all on 4 dental implant has been increasingly popular
This procedure is advertised widely as the magic solution to missing teeth.
Also know as same day teeth or a smile in a day is based on placing 4 immediate tooth implants in stratigic locations in the jawbone avoiding the need for advanced bone graft procedures. This followed immediately by the fit of a provisional fixed bridge.
This allow immediate replacement of the missing teeth restoring smile and function all in one day.
The concept is not new and has been used for many years.
However, now we know more about dental implants how they work and more crucially about their limitations and possible complications including periimplantitis
Hence, at London Smile Care we tend to be more selective in offering this treatment option to replace missing teeth.
This is what nature gave us, our teeth wont be rejected and if your own teeth got a problem we have a wealth of experience in dealing with teeth problems like tooth decay, root canal treatments and managing gum disease”.
However, if the patient lost all of their teeth careful assessment will be needed to assess the best option to replace them including the use of cosmetic dentures or tooth implants to support implant denture.
At London Smile Care we always do our best to provide tailored made treatment to suit each individual patient best needs.
In addition to reduce future complications with you dental implant we recommend the fit of 6 tooth implants in the upper jaw and 5 in the lower.
