All-on-4 Implants Kent
Not only can missing teeth seriously damage your self-esteem, but the functional difficulties they cause in eating and speaking can greatly affect your quality of life.
If you’re looking for a long-term, practical, comfortable, and cost-effective way to restore both your smile and your confidence, our groundbreaking all-On-4 dental implants could be the perfect solution.
What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary way to get a new set of teeth when you’ve lost a lot or all your natural teeth.
They’re called “all-on-4 dental implants” because the technique uses just four implants; strategically placed to securely anchor your new teeth to your gums.
How Are All-On-4 Dental Implants Different?
What makes all-on-4 dental implants so special is that the procedure can be completed in just one day. Other types of dental implants usually take much longer than this, and you will often need to wear temporary dentures whilst waiting for your permanent implants.
Imagine, walking into our Kent clinic and leaving that very same day with the beautiful, natural looking smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Another benefit of all-on-4 dental implants over other varieties is that they don’t need extra bone work to accommodate them.
As teeth are lost, gums begin to degrade. Individuals who have lost most of their teeth may therefore not have enough bone in their jaws for regular dental implants to be a viable option.
Bone graft surgeries are sometimes offered as a workaround, but these can be costly, time-consuming, highly invasive, and aren’t always effective.
As our all-on-4 dental implants only need enough bone to accommodate four anchor points, most people suffering from extensive tooth loss are ideal candidates.

All-on-4 Implants Kent FAQs
At Southview Dental, we regularly deal with patients who are extremely anxious about getting dental implants, and we’re here to reassure you every step of the way.
Pain is a key concern for many patients, but this isn’t something you should be too worried about.
We use local anaesthesia during the all-on-4 dental implant procedure, and we never start treatment until the entire area is completely numb.
Afterwards, you may feel some mild discomfort for a couple of days at most. However, this should be eased with over-the-counter pain relief.
Our revolutionary all-on-4 dental implants in Kent offer a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth and can stay in place for many years if you take care of them properly.
The lifespan of your all-on-4 dental implants depends on factors like your oral health, lifestyle choices, and medical conditions. Simple things like regular brushing and flossing can help make them last longer.
To ensure your implants stay in optimum condition for as long as possible, it’s a good idea to avoid biting or chewing on hard objects and limit alcohol and smoking, both before and after the procedure.
Southview Dental provides all our patients with instructions on how to take care of their all-on-4 dental implants after the procedure, increasing the chances of having successful, long-lasting results.
Typically, dental implant treatment takes about 3-8 months. However, if you opt for our innovative all-on-4 dental implants in Kent, you can have a full set of gorgeous, functional teeth in just one day!
Traditional dental implant procedures include several steps, such as a pre-surgery consultation (a dental exam), the implant surgery itself, a period for recovery after the surgery, and fitting the crown on top of the implant.
The duration of these other types of dental surgery can vary depending on the number of implants you need. If you require tooth extractions or a bone graft to strengthen your jaw, treatment will take much longer.
However, with all-on-four dental implants in Kent, the entire procedure can be completed in just one day. In fact, most patients feel able to return to work the very next day.
Any pain should be minimal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief.
At Southview Dental, many people come to us after being told they are not candidates for traditional dental implants.
This is typically because their jawbone has degraded extensively following tooth loss, meaning they don’t have the bone structure to support other types of implants.
As our innovative all-on-4 dental implants only require four viable anchor points, most patients suffering from extensive tooth loss are candidates.
So, even if you’ve been told that dental implants wouldn’t be suitable for you in the past, it’s definitely worth getting in touch.
