Q: Will my implant surgery painful?

A. Thanks to modern local anaesthesia techniques and light oral sedation, for many patients the process can be surprisingly comfortable. We can also provide intravenous (iv) sedation which safely provides a twilight sleep while the surgery is completed.

Q. How long after the surgery will I get my new teeth?

A. In most cases the wait is only a few days. Thanks to NobelGuide 3D computer imaging we are able to place your implants precisely and to pre-plan your teeth which can be tried in your mouth either on the same day as your surgery or the following day. Final adjustments of tooth position, colour and your bite can still be made at this time. In most cases your new fixed replacement teeth are inserted on Day 3.

Q. Are there alternative implant options All-on-4 procedure?

A. At the Institute of Dental Implants, we provide the full range of dental implant treatments ranging from single tooth dental implant replacement to complete tooth replacement. Dental Implants can also be used to support and stabilize dentures. At your initial consultation appointment we will evaluate your case and discuss all of the options available to you and which is most likely to suit your circumstances.

Q. Does the All-on-4 treatment solution mean I don't need bone grafting?

A. In most cases the answer is yes. Because the All-on-4 technique involves angling the back implants, areas where the bone is deficient can be avoided. However, in some cases minor bone grafting may be required to ensure ideal implant placement. This can often be undertaken at the time of implant placement. The potential need for bone grafting can be identified as part of your initial evaluation and discussed with you in detail.

Q. Can the treatment fail?

A. As with any surgical procedure there are always risks. However, all efforts are made to reduce the risks through the course of your treatment. Dr Danesh-Meyer and the Team at the Institute of Dental Implants will discuss the risks and benefits with you, providing you with alterative treatment options were appropriate. Failure rates are generally very low in healthy patients. Failure rates are kept low due to careful and detailed treatment planning, selective use of post-operative medications, sterile surgical technique and careful patient follow-up.
