A New Set Of Teeth In Just 1 Day With The All On 4 Technique
You may wonder if it is conceivable to have this kind of dental work done in a single day? Still, today many people suffer from missing teeth, ill fitting dentures or failing dentition.
At the Cris Piessens Clinic these patients enter at 9am, have implant surgery done and leave the clinic smiling by 6pm with a new set of bright and functional teeth.
The All on 4 technique may be a viable solution for you. Actually, it is a wonderful treatment plan for the right patient. It consists in replacing all of your teeth on the upper or the lower jaw (or both) with just 4 dental implants that will support a fixed bridge that is screwed onto the implants. 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 sterile operating room settings 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.
