All-on-4™ Dental Implants
All-on-4™ dental implants is a revolutionary technique in dentistry where a full arch of permanent teeth can be replaced on just four dental implants – all on the same day.
The technique requires a non-complex bone grafting procedure and is an ideal solution for patients who have loose dentures, failing crown and bridge work, severe bone loss or gum recession, who may have thought they wouldn’t be suitable for traditional dental implants.
The results are outstanding – a fully fixed non-removable arch of dentures on the same day.
Carole had All-on-4TM Dental Implant treatment with Dr Ian Lane
Carole had suffered from receding gums and gum disease for several years and as a result bone loss in her jaw was moving her teeth and causing gaps. Carole said “I was very self-conscious about my teeth and I thought that there was no solution to my problem as the bone loss meant I wasn’t a suitable patient for dental implants. Then I read an article in the press about a new procedure called All-on-4TM and I thought that could work for me. After an internet search of local dentists, I found that Queensway offered the procedure and made an appointment.
From my first consultation with Dr Lane I felt totally at ease and confident in his ability, after going away to think, I decided to go ahead. I was made an appointment for a few weeks later and the procedure was carried out in 1 day with Dr Rob Banks and Dr Ian Lane. Throughout the treatment I had conscious sedation and it was totally pain-free. Even afterwards there was no bruising, just slight swelling the next day.
I cannot believe the difference All-on-4TM has made to my life and I have been astonished at the amount of compliments I have received. My teeth look totally natural and my husband has commented that my teeth are back to what they used to be like.
I have and will continue to recommend Queensway Dental Clinic to everyone I know, I am so pleased with the results!”

The All-on-4TM procedure is the closest solution to natural teeth
All-on-4™ uses dental implant technology but is different because it can give patients a whole new set of teeth using only four implants. It is able to do so by placing two of the four implants at such an angle that the bridge is supported by the implants at the front of the mouth, where the jaw bone is denser and stronger.
The positioning of the implants is crucial to the long term success of the All-on-4™ treatment. We place two implants towards the front of the mouth in order to take advantage of the dense jaw bone existing there. The two implants that are placed at the posterior of the mouth are fitted at 30 and 45 degree angles. This allows maximum stability and takes full advantage of the stronger bone that exists at the front of the jaw. The dental bridge, which is a crown that supports an arch of replacement teeth, is then attached to the socket of the implants. Bridges can be attached on the same day that the implants are placed and the patients can leave the practice with a full set of natural looking teeth.
