One of the most common concerns expressed by many of our patients, particularly as they grow older, is the fear of losing teeth and having to wear uncomfortable dentures. We also have many patients tell us their teeth simply ‘can’t be fixed’ due to long-term complications and poor outcomes from previous dental treatment, leaving them resigned to the fact that they will go through life unable to smile, chew or speak the way they want to.
Luckily, if you are missing most or all of your teeth, have struggled with chronic tooth wear, or are unhappy with your smile due to ongoing dental issues, we can offer a comfortable and permanent solution, using All-on-Four treatments that are far superior to dentures, so you can continue living life with confidence.
We Are Experts in Healthy and Confident Smiles
If you are missing simple pleasures, like eating without pain, laughing aloud with friends or smiling with confidence, visiting one of our Adelaide All-on-4 clinics could be an ideal solution.
What Do We Do for an All-on-4™ Treatment?
The All-on-4™ treatment can provide you with functional, natural-looking teeth in as little as one to two days. The revolutionary All-on-Four treatments and dental implant innovation replace missing teeth using four or more titanium implants, which provide a secure base for optimal oral biomechanics.
The All-on-Four treatments then support up to 10-12 fixed replacement teeth, instantly giving you back your smile and the ability to enjoy all kinds of foods.
In certain cases, missing teeth can lead to deterioration of the jawbone over time, meaning some patients require minor reconstructive bone grafting before they can have teeth implants. Fortunately, this reconstruction can often be done at the same time as the implant surgery, rather than prior, so that the treatment process is not prolonged.
Additionally, as All-on-4™ only requires a minimum of four titanium implants, it is sometimes possible to provide non-removable teeth, even with jawbone deterioration, that function and look far better than dentures.

What Are the Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants?
If you have been hiding your smile, feel despondent because of previously unsuccessful dental treatment or can no longer eat many of the foods you love, All-on-4™ implants could change your life.
Decreasing the need for bone grafts or lengthy and expensive dental treatments, All-on-Four dental implants offer you complete mouth rehabilitation in a few visits, often with little downtime.
Generally performed under sedation or general anaesthetic, the All-on-4™ procedure is fast, effective, has a quick recovery time, a high success rate and will have you looking and feeling your best. By negating the need for uncomfortable, poor-functioning dentures, it is set to enhance your overall health and well-being.
How Long Do All-on-4 Teeth Last?
All-on-4 dental implants in a patient’s upper or lower jaw can last a very long time, if the dental surgery is completed by a professional and if you maintain good dental health.
Implant dentistry as a form of aesthetic dentistry is a great option for people who would prefer to avoid removable dentures. All-on-4 dental implants are the perfect choice for restorative dentistry if you want teeth straight away in the form of provisionals.

How Much Does the All-on-4 Dental Treatment Cost?
The cost of All- on- four dental implants can vary depending on the type of treatment you need. In Australia, all-on-4 dental treatment and implants can cost from $23,000 to $27,000 per each fixed arch. The costs may include the initial consultation, any procedures necessary before the dental surgery, the actual surgery, acrylic teeth and prosthetic fitting, the post-treatment review appointments and x-rays.
The All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure
If you’re wondering, ‘how long does it take to get all-on-4 dental implants?’ the following All-on-4 dental implant step-by-step information shows you what’s involved in the surgical process of All-on-4 implant dentistry after appropriate consultation:
Step 1: The Beginning of All-on-4
On day one, you’ll attend an appointment with your anaesthetist to make sure you’re comfortable during the All-on-4 surgery. Your mouth will be prepared for the implants, teeth will be removed, and diseased areas treated and cleaned. Your jaw will be prepared to receive the implants, then the implants are installed and wounds sutured with dissolvable stitches. Before you are woken, another anaesthetic is administered, so there is no pain when you wake up.
Step 2: Checking Your All-on-4 Implants
On the same day or the next, the placement of your installed implants is tested, and then the bridge is screwed in so you’ll be able to see what your new teeth look like. Your bite is then checked and makes sure your dental implants don’t affect your ability to speak. Some minor adjustments may be needed to improve your mouth’s comfort and function.
Step 3: All-on-4 Designing Your Permanent Teeth
On day three (3 months later), you’ll attend a simple and straightforward appointment that won’t require an anaesthetic. Impressions will be taken to construct your new prosthetic teeth.
Step 4: Attaching Your Prosthetic Teeth
Your new teeth will be secured permanently in place, and they will be immediately functional.
Follow Up All-on-Four Appointments
Follow-up appointments are scheduled for two weeks after your All-on-Four surgery, then twelve weeks later to check the gums have healed nicely and the implants are integrated with your jawbone. Once the permanent prosthesis has been attached you will need to attend every three to six months for cleans to ensure your gums are healthy and your implants remain in perfect condition.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Recovery Time
Immediately after surgery, All-on-4 dental implants are fully functional, unlike some other forms of dentistry. There is some discomfort and swelling during the weeks after your All-on-4 implant dentistry. Patients report that most of the slight pain is from the swelling and possible bruising, but Ibuprofen, Paracetamol, and in some cases, stronger prescription painkillers will help.
Should your discomfort or pain become severe, contact our team of experienced dentists at Kensington Dental Care straight away.
