ALL ON 4 TECHNIQUE
A NEW SET OF TEETH IN JUST 1 DAY
At Cris Piessens Clinic, the patient enters at 8am, has implant surgery completed and leaves the clinic smiling by 6pm with a new set of bright and functional teeth.
Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished your teeth did not let you down? Or gone out for a meal, only to realise that some of the tempting dishes on the menu are not for you because you are worried that your dentures might not cope? The all on 4 technique may be a viable solution for you.
Actually, it is a wonderful treatment plan for the right patient. This means that your new set of teeth will stay in place, only removable by your dentist. The surgical part is performed by Dr. Cris Piessens, a Belgian dentist who has more than 25 years’ experience in the field of dental implants, in a sterile operating room setting using conscious sedation and local anesthesia.
Have you been told you have insufficient bone for dental implants? Regardless of tooth loss or bone loss, now it is possible to place dental implants in almost any jaw. In fact, the All on 4 technique gives the chance to patients with severe bone loss to get fixed prosthesis on the same day of the implant surgery where other conventional techniques would fail.
In our clinic we perform a 3D CT scan (CBCT) in order to assess your bone quality to identify the areas where the implants will have good bone support and an excellent prognosis. Furthermore, we use a specific software to plan the surgery ahead of time to ensure that the implants are placed in a totally predictable way and in an optimal position.
Amongst the advantages offered by this procedure:
- It can be done without a bone graft
- Fewer dental implants are needed
- Dental implants are placed on the same day as extractions
- The patient is fitted with a new set of fixed teeth on the same day of the intervention.
It is the most cost-effective option for implant-supported teeth replacement. The actual success rates both for the upper and the lower treatment are in the ++90% range.
LIFE-CHANGING SOLUTIONS – SO WHAT IS INVOLVED?
An initial consultation and various detailed diagnostics including x-rays, 3D CT scan and dental impressions will determine your bone structure and the condition of any remaining teeth. An initial fixed denture or bridge is fitted on the same day and the final denture or bridgework is made after a few months.
It is vital that you take good care of your implants, so regular maintenance visits with our dental hygienist and a commitment to good home dental care is essential for long term success.
