All-Teeth-On-4 is a modern dental solution in which four dental implants support a bridge used to replace an entire row of teeth. This treatment is an alternative to traditional bridges and dentures and can replace teeth that are severely damaged or decayed, or teeth that are already missing.
All-Teeth-On-4 is preferred by many patients over dentures because they are easier to care for and function more like real teeth. Our team here at Pitt Street Dental Centre conveniently located in the heart of Sydney CBD is trained and experienced with all types of dental implants and can help you with All-Teeth-On-4 treatment.
What are Dental Implants?
If you have a missing tooth or need a tooth extracted, the tooth and the root are both removed. While sometimes extractions are necessary, removing the tooth root does lead to some problems, such as jawbone deterioration and shifting or loss of the surrounding teeth. Dental implants are a way to replace teeth along with their roots to prevent these issues.
Dental implants are tiny posts that are secured into the jawbone to replace the tooth root. First, the tiny, titanium post is surgically placed into the jawbone, then given time to heal.
During the 3-6 month healing time, your body begins to treat the implant as a natural tooth root and starts to build bone and gum tissue around it, which helps secure the post into place. This natural process is called osseointegration and is part of your natural healing system.
Once the dental implant is healed, an abutment will be secured onto it and then a dental crown onto that. An abutment is the piece that connects the implant to the crown, and the crown will act as your new tooth.
All-Teeth-On-4 in Sydney
All-Teeth-On-4 is a system in which four titanium posts, or implants, are used to support an entire arch of teeth. The ach is custom crafted for the patient and replaces an entire row of teeth. This is more cost-effective than using a dental implant for each tooth and more secure than traditional dentures.
Always friendly and professional staff…. Rebecca is fantastic and really gentle… beautiful service indeed.
Types of Dental Implants
can replace one missing tooth without the need to alter surrounding teeth, which the commonly used method to support a bridge
can replace multiple missing teeth without the need to alter the surrounding teeth or can replace multiple missing teeth that are not next to each other
implants are unique because only four implants are needed to replace an entire row of teeth, instead of one implant for each missing tooth, saving you money while you still get the benefits of implants
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are preferred by many patients because missing teeth lead to many unforeseen problems. When left missing, it can be very difficult and uncomfortable to chew food. The face will begin to look hollow and aged as the jawbone deteriorates.
Finally, the other teeth eventually move out of place to fill in the missing space, which can cause them to lose their foundation. But dental implants can prevent these issues.
In summary, the benefits of dental implants are:
Keep other teeth in their place
Maintain jawbone integrity
Maintain facial structure
Look and function like natural teeth
No need to file down adjacent teeth to support a bridge
Durable and long lasting
No shifting while talking or eating, which is common for traditional dentures

Our Patients' Transformations
Can I Get All-Teeth-On-4?
All-Teeth-On-4 is a great dental solution for patients who want to replace their dentures, who are missing most or all of their teeth on the top or bottom, or patients who need to have most of their teeth removed due to gum disease, severe decay or damage.
Most patients who want dental implants can get them, however there are some cases in which this might not be the best solution. Some situations that may not be compatible with dental implants include:
Severe jawbone loss
Patients who take certain medications such as those for osteoporosis
If you have jawbone loss and have been told you cannot get dental implants, we may still be able to help. With today’s technology, it is possible to build up bone with a bone grafting procedure to strengthen it for implants.
If you have gum disease, we can treat it and help you heal to prepare your mouth for All-Teeth-On-4 dental implants. The best thing to do is schedule a visit for an initial exam with us. If you are not a candidate for All-Teeth-On-4, we will find an ideal solution for you.
