You should maintain a good oral hygiene. Make sure you brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day and floss daily. You should stop smoking as this will severely affect the success of your dental implants. Be sure to regularly see your dentist and hygienist at Trinity Dental in Rothwell.
All-on-4 dental implants are proven to last. With good care and maintenance, there’s no reason why your full arch dental implants should not last for 20 years or longer.
All-on-4 dental implants support a full arch replacement of about 10 to 12 teeth. Some patients who want a complete full set of new teeth, can do so and will need all-on-4 dental implants to both the upper and lower jaw.
In some cases, the restoration (false tooth) can be fitted during the same appointment that the dental implant is placed. In other cases, time is needed for the mouth to heal before a restoration is fitted – this can be anything from two days to six months. Dr Simpson will let you know what you’ll require during the planning of your treatment.
Costs of dental implants vary depending on how complex the treatment is. Dr Millar will provide a full breakdown of costs as part of the planning stage of treatment. Dental practices can offer payment plans to make treatment more affordable.
Most adults with good general and oral health are suitable for dental implants. Young people whose jaw is still growing are usually not suitable. Anyone who smokes or drinks heavily may also not be suitable. Everyone is different – Alison will be able to provide more information tailored to you.
