Same Day Teeth - Welling, Kent

Same Day Teeth with All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants offer a transformative solution for patients seeking a complete smile makeover in just one day. This advanced treatment involves using four or six dental implants to support an entire arch of teeth, providing a permanent, secure, and aesthetically pleasing solution for tooth loss.

What are All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants?

All-on-4 and All-on-6 are innovative approaches to dental implants that provide a full-arch prosthesis on the same day as your implants are placed. This technique uses four or six strategically placed implants per arch to secure all the replacement teeth. This method not only maximises the use of available bone but also provides the following benefits:

  • Immediate results: Walk out with a full set of teeth on the same day.
  • Less invasive: Often eliminates the need for bone grafts, which are commonly required in traditional implant procedures.
  • Rapid recovery: The procedure allows for shorter recovery times compared to traditional implants.
  • Cost-effective: Typically requires fewer implants than traditional methods, reducing the cost and complexity of treatment.
  • Long-lasting solution: Offers a durable and long-term solution for missing teeth with proper care and maintenance.

The procedure

  1. Initial consultation: Our experts assess your oral health, discuss your expectations, and plan your treatment using detailed scans and X-rays to map out the placement of the implants.
  2. Implant placement: The implants are surgically placed into your jawbone. This is done under local anaesthesia or sedation to ensure comfort.
  3. Attachment of new teeth: Once the implants are in place, a full arch of teeth (temporary and later permanent) is attached, providing functional, aesthetically pleasing teeth in just one day.
  4. Follow-up care: We schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and replace the temporary teeth with permanent ones after your mouth has fully healed.

Differences between dental crowns & bridges

All-on-4

All-on-4 dental implants utilise four titanium implants to secure a full arch of replacement teeth.

This method is designed to maximise the use of available bone, often eliminating the need for bone grafts by placing implants at strategic angles.

It is ideal for patients with lower bone density or those seeking a cost-effective, less invasive solution that quickly improves dental function and aesthetics.

All-on-6

All-on-6 dental implants involve six implants to support a full arch of prosthetic teeth, providing enhanced stability and distribution of force across the jaw.

This option requires sufficient bone density and is suited for patients who can support more implants.

The additional implants help improve the longevity and durability of the prosthetic, making it a robust choice for those with higher functional demands.

Frequently Asked Questions

All-on-4 uses four implants, mainly in patients with limited bone density without requiring bone grafts, due to strategic placement. All-on-6 uses six implants, enhancing stability and load distribution, ideal for patients with sufficient bone density.

Candidates include those with multiple tooth losses, adequate oral health, and sufficient bone density (more critical for All-on-6). Both treatments are suited for patients looking for durable, long-term replacements for removable dentures.

These implants provide a stable and secure fit, improve chewing and speaking ability, prevent bone loss, and offer a natural-looking dental appearance.

Most patients experience minimal discomfort. Local anaesthesia or sedation is used during the procedure to ensure comfort, and post-operative pain can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain relief.

The surgical part of placing the implants can usually be completed in one day. The entire process, including consultation, preparatory work, and final placement of the permanent prosthetic, may take several months from start to finish.

Both procedures have high success rates, generally above 95%, especially when patients follow post-operative care instructions and maintain good oral hygiene.

Daily brushing and flossing, along with regular dental check-ups, are necessary. Special attention should be given to cleaning around the implant sites.

Yes, many patients opt to replace their removable dentures with All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants due to the superior stability, comfort, and function they provide.

Some swelling and discomfort are normal after the surgery, which can be managed with medication. Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days, but a soft diet may be recommended for a period following the implant placement.
