New teeth in a day with All-on-4 dental implants in South Yorkshire

Man having a dental implantA few years ago, having an entire arch of teeth replaced in a day seemed like an impossibility. Nowadays, this is achievable, thanks to advancements in implant dentistry. Improvements in implant technology and materials allow for less invasive surgery without bone grafts. This results in the ability to replace missing or decayed teeth with All-on-4 dental implants in just one visit to the dentist.

Unlike bone grafts that require quite a significant time of waiting before getting replacement teeth, All-on-4 dental implants in South Yorkshire are quick to install and can be placed in mere hours. They are now available in many dental practices in Barnsley, including PDC Dental Implants. As with any treatment, there are unique obstacles that may prevent this from happening (certain dental or medical conditions), so an experienced dentist will guide patients through their particular situation and suggest whether this treatment is viable.

All-on-4 dental implants in South Yorkshire – what to expect

Traditionally, restoring a mouthful of teeth would require bone grafts, six or more implants and as many as 18months of treatment. Often patients would go without any teeth or temporary dentures, for months in a go. With All-on-4 dental implants, only one or two visits to the dentist are required. During a consultation appointment, the dentist will gather information for a thorough treatment plan and examine the state of the teeth of the patient. Following the initial appointment, implant surgery will be scheduled and new teeth are fitted and adjusted in one appointment – even when extractions are necessary.

All-on-4 dental implants are ideal for those patients in need of full upper and/or lower replacement teeth and for those currently wearing dentures. Patients who qualify for this procedure, will have four dental implants strategically fixed into the upper or the lower jaw and a full set of new replacement teeth to fit over them in just one appointment. The single greatest advantage of All-on-4 dental implants in South Yorkshire is how quickly conventional dentures can be replaced with permanent implant-supported bridges or dentures, resulting in fixed, non-removable and brand new and functional replacement teeth.
