Can You Afford All-On-4 Implants?
Dental implants are used for people who are missing either a single tooth or multiple teeth and want to restore the appearance of their smile and improve their ability to bite and chew food. All-on-4 dental implants are an advanced technique that requires the insertion of four implants in the upper or lower jaw to support a group of teeth that are fixed securely to these very stable implants. This is a system that has proven its functionality over time, offering a very effective alternative to dentures and bridges.
High Oral Health Is Essential
For implant surgery, your mouth should be generally healthy and there should not be any gum disease. If implants are fitted where there is gum disease, it is possible that there will be an infection that could lead to the failure of the procedure. Your dentist will check that your oral health is suitable for a procedure. If you meet the criteria for implant surgery then the most suitable treatment must be identified taking into consideration factors, such as general health, the number of missing teeth, the location of where they are missing in your mouth, the amount of bone at the site, the quality and integrity of that bone, and if you have any specific health conditions that might impact on your recovery.
After the implants have been inserted, there will be regular check-up appointments to assess the condition of your mouth around the implants and to take any steps needed to prevent any complications or to treat any signs of infection.
The Benefits Of All-On-4 Dental Implants
This system provides many benefits. You are able to have new teeth firmly in place quickly. You will have a completely new and attractive smile as a result of the procedure.
Eating Becomes Easier
If you have had problems with your old teeth or dentures, then you will find eating is considerably easier. They are very stable and give you a firm bite so you can eat with confidence, even enjoying foods that you could not eat because of your teeth problems.
Stability And Health
Implants are secured to your jaw bone so they will not change position. You can be confident your smile will be secure. The titanium used for the implants will last more than a lifetime and the quality materials used to construct your new teeth will look good for many years. They are also easy to replace when it becomes necessary.
Because of their stability and the materials used for constructing the new teeth, it is easy to maintain your new smile. You will still need to have regular check-ups just to confirm there are no problems and that your daily dental care routine is working. By replacing any failing teeth and reducing the chance of associated problems such as gum disease, you are removing a range of health issues that can impact you. A clean and healthy mouth and a confident smile will provide multiple benefits to your well-being.
This is an efficient system where you are able to replace multiple teeth by only using four implants, which reduces the costs to you as well. The surgery is reasonably straightforward and the titanium implants will create a structure as strong as that of natural teeth. Often the surgery is able to be completed in one session. We will check to see if bone grafts are required as part of our preparation work for this procedure.
With this type of procedure, we will always ensure that you are kept fully informed of each part of the process. We understand that this is an important step for you and we want to make sure you feel supported and also have all the information you need to confirm you are making the right choice.
There have been ongoing improvements in the methods and the materials used for the construction of crowns and bridges for replacing your old teeth. It is now possible to choose a material that will very closely match the colour of your natural teeth. These are carefully shaped so that is very difficult to identify that they are not part of your natural smile.
We provide the high quality but more expensive porcelain materials that provide stronger and longer lasting results. We also offer cheaper options that use composite materials that are very functional and still match the appearance of your natural teeth. We are confident that you will be able to find a suitable material to provide an effective solution that will match your specifications.
These teeth are much more comfortable than dentures. Sitting on a very stable metal base, they stay completely still while you are speaking or eating, just the same as ordinary teeth. You will not experience any embarrassing situations such as dentures coming loose. There is also no possibility of the discomfort that occurs with having dentures, as they can rubb the inside of your mouth or cause gum soreness.
This technique has been in use for decades and is recognised internationally as a safe treatment. Clinical studies have confirmed the effectiveness and the safety of dental implants and the All-on-4 system is a well recognised and successful process used extensively.
At Sunshine Dental Group, we provide a range of options to assist you with making payments for this type of procedure. We have tried to ensure that we provide flexibility with multiple options available.

We understand that for many of our patients dental care can be expensive, especially with more advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures. Because of this, we have put in place arrangements for our clients to be able to use payment plans or credit options.
