For many people, particularly in later life, the loss or removal of numerous teeth can have a considerable impact on your well-being. Having only a few remained teeth can also be upsetting, difficult to deal with, affecting your happiness and quality of life. The dental implant procedure is not always suitable for patients lacking healthy jaw bone.
Dental Elegance wants you to have the best possible treatment options for when you lose a tooth, rather than having to settle for Dentures or removable Bridges. Our experience in providing All-on-4™ Dental Implants means our patients can now choose a long-term, natural-looking option for replacement teeth, and the procedure can be completed in a single visit.
Dental Implants are inserted into the jawbone to anchor in your new tooth securely, and this is done with a short surgical procedure which is minimally invasive. Implants made from titanium fuse with the bone of the jaw because they are biocompatible and the body does not reject the material. This means Implants like All-on-4™ can be used for single teeth or full rows of upper and lower teeth without complication. They are non-removable structures which will strengthen the jaw by stabilising bone levels, improving the overall health of the oral cavity and preserving your youthful appearance.
What is All-on-4™?
A revolutionary new kind of Dental Implant, All-on-4™ has been developed over the last decade to provide the highest quality Implant possible. Even if the patient does not have bone mass, Implants can be inserted with a tilt so that full sets of upper or lower teeth can be successfully implanted. The result is secure, healthy and natural-looking teeth with only one quick procedure.
Why All-on-4™ Implants?
Traditional Dentures and Bridges have been used as treatments for missing teeth for many years, and even Dental Implants have more recently become suitable options for many. But for patients who do not have suitable bone mass, Implants could only be inserted once a bone graft was completed an expensive and invasive procedure.
Because of their unique design and technique, All-on-4 is suitable for almost anyone who has been told they are unsuitable for Dental Implants, even if they have insufficient bone mass.
• A minimum of four Implants are needed in each jaw to allow rehabilitation of edentulous maxilla or mandible (on occasion six Implants may be required in the upper jaw)
• Painful and time-consuming bone grafting procedures not needed
• Quick procedure required for straightforward cases
• Teeth are fixed and functional the same day as the procedure
• Full tooth function is available from day one
• Surgery is minimally-invasive and less painful
• More cost-effective and time-saving than bone grafts
• Success rates are much improved to Implants done after bone transplants
• Patients who were previously unsuitable have the option of Dental Implants
Is All-on-4™ Right for Me?
If you are wondering about All-in-4™ Implants, you can book in for an initial evaluation with Dental Elegance where we will be more than happy to discuss your options. If you have any questions or are uncertain about what the procedure entails, we will put your mind at ease, so you can make an informed choice.
Even if you have had bridgework done previously, or if you have been told you don’t have enough bone mass, All-on-4™ may still be an option. As experienced healthcare professionals in using the All-in-4™ technique, Dental Elegance can now offer All On 4 Implants to patients who were viewed as being unsuitable for Implants.

Securing the provisional prosthesis using prosthetic screws
All-on-4™ implants are inserted using a quick and minimally invasive procedure which is revolutionary within the dental profession. Prior to surgery, consultants at Dental Elegance will fully evaluate your dental health and the treatment options available to you. This includes an examination of your teeth and jaws, imaging of your mouth and a full discussion of your needs and expectations.
The next stage of your assessment includes 3-D imaging of your teeth and jaws using specialist computer software, so the surgeon can plan the specific placement of your Implants. This virtual technique means a huge reduction in surgery time and a chance to see what your procedure will entail.
When you come in for your Implants to be inserted, your new teeth will have been made in the laboratory that day and delivered to your surgeon. With your Implant procedure completed in one visit, you will be walking away with a brand-new smile and fully functioning teeth the same day.
What is the All-on-4™ Bridge?
Recognised as the most technologically and aesthetically advanced fixed prosthesis for patients with total Edentulism, the All-in-4™ Ceramic Bridge is the leading option for oral rehabilitation.
Combining extraordinary biomedical engineering with Nobel Procera™ CAD/CAM industrial science, patients now have an outstandingly functional and great-looking solution beyond implants. Using bio-compatible materials including titanium and ceramic, rehabilitation of the gums can now be achieved in addition to tooth rehabilitation.
The All-in-4™ Ceramic Bridge was designed to replicate the movement and function of natural teeth, a unique design which gives the patient incredibly comfortable and hygienic teeth. Not only are they comprised of individual ceramic crowns that work together to improve speech and chewing, but they are also quick and easy to repair meaning a low-maintenance tooth loss solution.
