A Dental Implant is a small titanium screw inserted inside your jawbone to replace the root-part of a missing tooth. All-On-4 refers to a dental implant technique where four implants on top or four implants on the bottom are used to support a bridge or overdenture of 12 to 14 teeth instead of using an implant for every missing tooth. The procedure is mostly performed to replace badly decayed teeth, broken down teeth, or compromised teeth due to gum disease.
The procedure is carried out under local or general anesthetic. First, your dentist prepares your mouth for the implants by removing your remaining failing teeth, as well as any infected or diseased tissue from your gums and jaw. Then, your dentist inserts the titanium screws into your jawbone; two toward the front of your mouth and two towards the back of your mouth to make sure they can evenly support the denture.
You may need to stay in South Africa for one week after the procedure. However, some dentists may require two appointments with an interval of 6 months.
The recovery period of the All-On-4 dental implant is around six to eight weeks, but you should be able to return to work within 4 days after the surgery if your job is not physically demanding.
It is important to rest as much as you can for the first couple of days following the surgery. Avoid any strenuous activities, such as exercises and lifting heavy objects. Make sure to keep your mouth as clean as possible while you are still recovering and also when you have fully recovered. You also need to watch your diet for the first few days after the surgery.
The success rate of All-On-4 is over 94%. The side effects and risks associated with All-On-4 dental implants are persistent bleeding, swelling, nausea, discoloration, dry lips, sore throat, sharp sensations in your mouth, dental implants that do not integrate with the bone, stiff muscles and failed implants.
If for some reason you feel that All-On-4 is not the right dental procedure for you, your alternatives include G4 implants and traditional dentures.
After a dental implant, you will have your full smile and you will gain back your confidence, ability to chew, and the implant will help maintain a more youthful facial structure.
