First our trained and experienced staff is here to prepare you with detailed instructions, antibiotics and sedatives. Then you will be given an anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
Once the procedure begins, your doctor will remove all of the damaged teeth that remain, including any infected tissue from the gums and jaw. The doctor will then start placing dental implants.
Two dental implants are placed at the front of the jaw, where there is maximum support. Two more dental implants are inserted at a 45 degree angle along the side of the jaw to draw as much strength from the sturdy bone as possible. Thanks to this strategic approach, your All-on-4 dental implants can be restored soon after placement -- in as little as 24 hours, you can be smiling once again.

In the second phase, the lab technician and doctor will work together to prepare a temporary bridge. At this stage, the new teeth will be tried in and patients individual aesthetic requirements finalised with our in-house dental laboratory. Then the doctor will secured your temporary teeth to the newly placed implants. You will then be allowed to return home, to start and enjoy your new smile.
