All-on-4 dental implant procedure in Woking
There are 5 main steps for the all-on-4 dental implant process:
1) Initial Consultation
At your free consultation, our expert dentist will talk to you and give you more information about the treatment for all-on-4 dental implants. Then your teeth and mouth will be thoroughly examined. You will be questioned about your general and dental health too.
2) All-on-4 dental surgery
Once you decide to go ahead with the treatment, we will book you in for your Same Day Teeth dental surgery. You will be given a local anaesthetic which means that you won’t be able to feel anything in your mouth. If you have any failing or remaining teeth, these will be extracted. Our dental expert will then carefully place the 4 dental implants into your upper or lower jaw. Once this is complete, a temporary fixed bridge will be attached so that you can leave the dental practice with a new set of teeth!
Your mouth and gums may feel sore as the local anaesthetic wears off, but this should feel better in a day or two. Your dental implants will take between 2 and 6 months to efficiently fuse to your jawbone. At this time, we will be preparing your custom-made dental bridge.
You will be invited back to the dental practice to have your bespoke dental bridge fitted to your dental implants. This will be custom-made and fitted with new teeth that look and feel completely natural.
5) After care
Care and maintenance of your dental implants is essential to enhance their longevity as well as to protect your oral hygiene. Your dentist and hygienist can tell you how to brush and floss effectively with dental implants.
