All On 4 Dental Implants
What is All On 4 Dental Implants ?
All-on-4 dental implants are a good option if you are missing many or all of your teeth.
At Wolds Dental Studio in Market Rasen, we have treated hundreds of patients from Market Rasen, Gainsborough, Cherry Willingham, Welton, Sudbrooke, Fiskerton, Nettleham, Caistor, Keelby, Reepham, and throughout Lincolnshire with all-on-4 dental implants.
All-on-4 dental implants uses just 4 dental implants to support a complete set of new teeth to either the upper or lower jaw.
The 4 dental implants are made of titanium metal posts which are embedded into your jaw and act as the new replacement tooth root. A bridge containing your new teeth will then be fixed to these posts. Your new teeth sit in the gums and look and function just like natural teeth.
What is the process for All On 4 Dental Implants ?
Free consultation and CBCT scan
At your free initial consultation, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and discuss the benefits of all-on-4 dental implants. At Wolds Dental Studio we will use our CBCT (Cone Beam CT) scan to give us a highly accurate visual image of your teeth and jaw. This detailed scan allows us to identify any possible issues with your mouth and will enable us to accurately place your all-on-4 dental implants during surgery.
All-on-4 dental implant surgery
On the day of your dental implant surgery, you will arrive at the dental practice in Market Rasen. We will put you at ease and once you are ready, will give you a local anaesthetic which will numb the specific area in your mouth. The 4 dental implants will be gently inserted into your upper or lower jawbone, you will be awake but will not feel anything.
Once the dental implant surgery is complete, a temporary bridge containing prosthetic teeth will be attached to the dental implants so that you do not have to wait for your final bridge with gaps in your mouth.
The formal healing period for all-on-4 dental implants is between 2 and 6 months and during this time it allows the dental implants to fuse with your jawbone. It also gives your gums a chance to recover.
You may find that for a day or two after your all-on-4 dental surgery, your mouth and gums will be sore, and it may take you a couple of days to feel like returning to work or your usual routines. Other people may take a bit longer.
You will be able to eat, drink, talk and smile with your temporary bridge.
During this healing time, we will make your permanent bespoke bridge containing your new set of prosthetic teeth for you.
New bridge is fitted
Once your gums have healed sufficiently, we will invite you back to the dental practice in Market Rasen to have your bespoke bridge attached to your dental implants. This will contain your new set of teeth which will be custom-made to fit your mouth and made of the exact shade of colour chosen before your dental implant surgery.
Your all-on-4 dental implant process is complete, and you will now have a brand-new smile with stunning looking teeth.
Maintenance for all-on-4 dental implants
Maintaining a good oral hygiene is essential after having all-on-4 dental implants fitted as it helps to keep your gums healthy and increases the longevity of your dental implants. Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day and visit your dentist and hygienist regularly.

Frequently Asked Questions about All On 4 Dental Implants
Is everyone suitable for all-on-4 dental implants?
Most patients are suitable, but we will need to examine your teeth and jaw thoroughly. Our CBCT scan at the dental practice in Market Rasen will help us do this. Some patients with certain medical conditions will not be suitable and other patients may not be suitable because they do not have sufficient bone in their jaw to support the all-on-4 dental implants. In these instances, we can explore other options. This will be discussed at your initial free consultation.
Does all-on-4 dental implants hurt?
The all-on-4 dental implant surgery will not hurt you because you will be given a local anaesthetic which numbs the area in your mouth. Some patients experience some soreness in the next few days, but this is manageable with paracetamol.
Do I need to eat anything special after my all-on-4 dental implant surgery?
You may want to eat softer foods directly after having your all-on-4 dental implant surgery. It won’t be long before you will soon be able to return to a usual diet where you can eat whatever you want and not worry about it affecting your teeth.
