All on four is the best solution available for someone missing all of their teeth, providing a fixed option to those awkward and uncomfortable removable dentures. It is also a great solution for people whose teeth are very broken down or unlikely to last due to for example gum disease. Because all the teeth are removed, it allows us to truly create the smile that you really want. Not only that, it is fixed so you are able to chew and function normally and with full confidence. Partial dentures, on the other hand, rely on natural teeth for support so often have clasps and metal show, they are far harder to blend naturally with the existing teeth and you, of course, have to remove them to clean them.
The name comes from having ‘All’ the teeth placed on ‘four implants’ though sometimes 6 implants are required for the best stable result. An implant is essentially a fixed screw in the jaw to which we can attach a custom prosthesis or fake tooth (or teeth). We work hand in hand with one of the best surgeons in the world to deliver this life-changing result. It is not a quick and cheap solution, it is the best and most expensive option – but it is life-changing. You can have a single arch meaning – to replace the top teeth or bottom teeth or can have both arches treated. Cost-wise you are looking at around $30k per arch. Whilst you may be able to find this slightly cheaper, if you are spending this level of money, you want to ensure you are getting the best surgeon and technician to produce your new smile and this is what we do.
