Throughout our life, maintaining good quality dental care is always going to be important, both for cosmetic reasons and for your own health.

The All-on-Four Treatment
This all begs the question, what exactly does the All-on-Four treatment offered from Dental Implants in Melbourne consist of? To start with, the location of all four implants needs to be plotted correctly. This plotting is done using state-of-the-art technology such as CT scanners. The implants need to be placed such that two of them are in the upper jaw and two of them are in the lower jaw. This allows stable, permanent teeth to be fitted because the implants act as a strong base for a full arch of dentures to be fitted on top of. By securing the dentures with the All-on-Four treatment, the dentures become permanent. This means that they will work and look just like regular teeth.
However, the implants will need time to mould and combine themselves with the upper and lower jawbone. Once the implants have properly moulded, it is then possible for the permanent brace to be fitted. In the meantime, your dentist will most likely fit you with a temporary bridge in your mouth. This makes sure that you still get your new, natural looking smile on the same day as walking into get Dental Implants in Melbourne for treatment. Usually, the permanent denture can then be fitted approximately six months after the initial treatment.
Receiving this treatment can have substantial benefits for your oral health for the rest of your life. For example, in addition to potentially receiving a confidence boost from your new smile, you can also be confident that your teeth will remain stable and secure when you laugh or eat as well.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
