An all-On-2 dental implant uses only 2 implants to attach a complete bridge in either the upper or lower jaws, meaning you do not need an implant for every missing tooth. This procedure is ideal for people who have lost or need to replace some of their teeth and want their new teeth to have the same level of stability and strength as natural teeth.
The procedure is performed under general anesthetic. Your dentist will start by evaluating and scanning your mouth to assess its anatomical structures. After that, your dentist will make impressions to create your new set of teeth or bridges. Once the bridge is ready, your dentist will place two implants that will support the bridge permanently.
If your dentist has the option of same-day treatment, you only need to stay in South Africa for about a week. If your dentist requires 2 to 3 appointments to finish the procedure, you may need to stay longer or plan more than one trip to South Africa.
Unless your job is physically demanding, you should be able to return to work within 2-4 days. However, the total recovery period until you can get back to your normal routine maybe around 6 to 8 weeks.
It is vital to rest as much as you can in the first couple of days following the procedure to let your body heal. Make sure to avoid strenuous activities, including intense exercises. You also need to maintain your new set of teeth by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antibacterial mouthwash. Make sure to eat a healthy diet and avoid food that is bad for your teeth, such as carbonated drinks, alcohol, and candies.
The success rate of the All-On-2 dental implant is over 90%. It is effective, safe, and permanent. However, there are some side effects and risks associated with the procedure, including persistent bleeding, swelling, discoloration, dry lips, sore throat, stiff muscles, implants that do not integrate with your bone, and sharp sensations in your mouth.
All-On-2 dental implant is not for everyone. If you are not a good candidate for this procedure, the alternatives include individual dental implants or traditional dentures. If you have lost a significant amount of teeth, you can also discuss with your dentist if other “All-On” procedures (All-On-4, All-On-6, and All-On-8) are more suitable for you.
You may have lost some teeth before you get an All-On-2. Not having a complete set of teeth can make it hard for you to chew and it can have an impact on your confidence. After an All-On-2, you will have natural-looking dental implants, which will bring back your beautiful smile and improve your chewing function.
