All on four dental implants are an innovative surgical procedure for people who have lost most of their teeth or all teeth but do not want to deal with loose dentures. All on 4 dental implant treatment in Turkey offer an effective solution for replacing a complete set of teeth in the lower or upper jaw or both with only four dental implants placed at strategic positions and specific angles.
The implants provide firm support for a fixed full bridge to give a natural-looking, stable, durable result for better bite quality and teeth function.
Many people visit Turkey to get dental implants at Dental Practice Turkey after losing several teeth due to oral health issues or an injury. Losing teeth often makes people feel self-conscious when smiling.
Our dentists will work to help you regain your self-confidence with our all-on-4 dental implants. Our dental implant treatments are available at an affordable cost.
At your initial consultation with our surgeon and prosthodontist, they will determine if you are a suitable candidate for all on 4 dental implants. You will discuss the procedure, and the dental professional will ask for details of your medical history.
After your consultation, you will have a CBCT scan to show details of your facial structures, muscles and jaw. This allows our specialist to carefully examine your jaw conditions and assess the quantity and quality of your jaw.
The all on 4 dental implant in Turkey procedure is a two-part surgery. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia, but the dentist can administer general anaesthesia or sedation for people with dental phobia and anxiety.
After the implant placement, you will allow them to heal, which takes a while. The recovery process may cause pain, but the pain level varies between patients. Some people experience severe pain and may need painkillers.
Bleeding may occur in the initial recovery period. While a small amount of bleeding that decreases within 1 – 2 days is normal, several cases may need medical attention. The surgical areas may be swollen for 2 – 3 days, and the dentist will prescribe pain medication to manage any swelling.
In some cases, the surgical area becomes black, gradually turns yellow, and heals. Healing takes about 3 – 6 months, and osseointegration (fusion of the implant with the jawbone) occurs within this period.
Your dentist will advise eating only soft foods within this period to prevent putting excess force on the implant, making them loos or heal incorrectly. After osseointegration occurs, the dentist can place the permanent dentures.
If you want to opt for the ‘all-on’ system, you may want to know the difference between all on 4 dental implants and all on 6 dental implants. The main difference between these teeth implants is the number of dental implants placed in the jaw.
For all-on-4 implants, you will have four dental implant posts inserted in your jaw, while for all-on-6, you will get six implants. All-on-6 implants give stronger and more stable support for prosthetic dental restoration, which gives a longer-lasting result.
The additional stability and more implants for pressure distribution when chewing and biting make all on 6 implant a good teeth replacement option. The additional implants support your bite and strengthen your jaw bone.
However, people with insufficient bone strength to accommodate the extra two implants for all-on-6 can get all-on-4 implants. After examining your jawbone, your dentist will help recommend the most suitable all-on system.
Studies show that all on 4 dental implants have a 98.2% success rate for the lower arch and a 97 – 98% success rate for the upper arch. Many people can get all on 4 dental implants, but certain things can cause dental implant failure. They include smoking, periodontal disease and health conditions such as diabetes and inflammatory diseases.
The technology for all on 4 dental implants is the same as traditional implants. The surgeon will place the titanium screws in the jaw during the implant placement to fuse with the jawbone through the osseointegration process.
The only difference between these dental implants is that during all on 4 dental implants, the surgeon will place four implants, with two of these implants at an angle, to offer maximum support to the denture.
If the all on 4 implants fuse with the bone during healing, they can remain in place for a lifetime like the traditional implants. Your all on 4 dental implants can last 20 years or more with proper care.
Regardless of your age, people who wear dentures or need dentures in the future can have all on 4 dental implants. However, you must be healthy.
The all on 4 implant system is a tailor-made option to fit your face structure and gives the most attractive, natural smile.
All on 4 teeth implants are stable and offer no eating restrictions like dentures. You can eat whatever you want, including sticky, hot and hard food.
Since the implants are similar to your natural teeth, cleaning your teeth is also easy.
All on 4 implants offer a lifelong solution for missing teeth, so you don’t need recurring visits to the dentist to replace your missing teeth.
The implants replace your natural tooth root and promote jawbone growth even after tooth loss, unlike the traditional bone loss that may allow bone loss.
With the right dental care, your all-on-4 implants can last a lifetime.
A good oral hygiene routine is vital in how long your all on 4 implants will last. Caring for your all on 4 implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. You should brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss around your implants to remove food particles and plaque.
You can also use an anti-bacterial mouth rinse and water pick to remove lingering food particles. Your routine dental cleaning every three months at the dental clinic is also important to prolong the lifespan of your all on 4 implants.
Choosing a good surgeon for your all on 4 implant procedure is important for the procedure’s success. For example, a poorly fitted implant can result in tissue or nerve damage, and if the bone grafting isn’t done properly, the implant may fail.
The surgeon will transfer bone tissues from other body parts to the jaw during bone grafting to support the dental implant. This procedure is necessary if the bone tissue is insufficient.
Turkey is home to top-rated dental professionals, and our dental specialists are experienced in fitting all on 4 implants. Our surgeons are well-trained and internationally recognised. We will ensure your all on 4 implants are placed correctly for a successful procedure.
The cost of all on 4 implants varies depending on several factors like the treatments. For example, you will pay more if you need bone grafting or treatment for infection before the implant placement.
However, you will pay about 4 – 5 times less for your implant in Turkey than in other countries. The all on 4 implant cost in Turkey covers your treatment, transfers and accommodation. Ensure you check the cost of treatment before deciding to get all on 4 implants.
