If you’re missing all or most of your teeth or have been told you’re about to lose them, you may be wondering whether it’s possible to get full mouth dental implants to restore your smile.

The good news is that yes, you can replace what’s lost and get your smile back. But instead of replacing one tooth at a time with single dental implants, you can get a full arch of up to 12 teeth, held in place by four dental implants. This type of treatment is called All-on-4.

In this article, we’ll give you more insight into full mouth dental implants, how they work and what you can expect from this procedure.

What are full mouth dental implants?


Full mouth dental implants are also often known as All-on-4 dental implants. This treatment is designed for people who are about to lose or have lost all of their teeth.

Full mouth dental implants involve the placement of at least four dental implants in the jaw, which hold a permanently fixed implant tooth bridge of up to 12 teeth. In some cases, six dental implants may need to be placed in the jaw due to the patient’s bone type, bite and other individual factors. If you’d like to learn all about the All-on-4 procedure, check out our article dedicated to the topic here.


Want to know the best part about All-on-4 full mouth dental implants? Your implant tooth bridge can be fitted to your implants in just 2 to 3 days after surgery. So, you’ll get your smile and complete function back in only a few days.

Full mouth dental implants are also known as All-on-4. Instead of replacing each tooth with a single implant, a tooth bridge of up to 12 teeth is held in place by at least four dental implants.

How do full mouth dental implants work?


To place your full mouth dental implants, we use a special technique created by Nobel Biocare. It involves the placement of four titanium implants: two straight implants at the front of your jaw and two angled implants at the back of your jaw.

The back implants are placed at a 45-degree angle to utilise more bone density to support the tooth bridge. This also helps us to overcome any bone deficiencies and place your implants without the need for bone grafting — even if you have jaw bone loss.

Is it painful to get full mouth dental implants?

During your full mouth dental implant surgery, you will be put under twilight sedation (or IV sedation). Twilight sedation relaxes the body’s central nervous system and suppresses your pain receptors, so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort during your surgery.

This is a form of conscious sedation, which means you’ll drift off into a relaxed, sleep-like state but you’ll technically still be awake and responsive. You may have also heard this being referred to as sleep dentistry. Want to know more? Check out this article where we answer the top 5 questions about sedation.

In the days after your full mouth dental implant procedure, you may experience some discomfort, swelling and bruising. However, we will provide you with prescription painkillers to help you manage any pain during this time.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is.

That it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
