The thought of undergoing dental surgery can be daunting, especially when it comes to a complex procedure like All-on-4 dental implants. However, understanding the process, pain management techniques, and real patient experiences can help alleviate concerns.

About the Procedure of All-on-4

The All-on-4 procedure is a revolutionary dental implant technique designed to replace a full arch of teeth using only four implants. It involves placing two implants at the front of the jaw and two tilted implants at the back, maximising bone support and minimizing the need for bone grafting.

  • Pre-surgery Pain Management: Before undergoing the All-on-4 procedure, patients receive thorough pre-surgery pain management. This typically involves the administration of local anaesthesia or sedation to ensure minimal discomfort during the surgical process. Moreover, the dental team takes the time to educate patients about what to expect during and after the surgery, including potential discomfort and how to effectively manage it.
  • During the Procedure: Throughout the All-on-4 surgery, patient comfort remains a top priority. Anaesthesia is administered to keep patients pain-free and relaxed while the implants are being strategically placed. By ensuring patients are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure, the dental team can perform the necessary steps with precision and efficiency.
  • Post-surgery Pain Management: Following the All-on-4 procedure, some degree of discomfort or swelling may occur, which is entirely normal. To address this, patients are typically prescribed pain medication and anti-inflammatory drugs to manage any post-operative pain effectively. Additionally, patients are advised on proper post-operative care practices to alleviate discomfort and facilitate the healing process.

You have had surgery on your mouth after all, but it does heel, the pain goes away and it’s simply a game changer for me. I have been able to eat apples and nuts for the first time in 20 years without worrying about breaking a tooth. The personal confidence is just as significant. To be able to smile again without thinking about it!”
