All-on-4 Dental Implants in Both Jaws

Find UK Dentists »

All-on-4 implants offer patients access to a simple, effective, and convenient implant technology to which long lasting dentures can be affixed. All-on-4 implants have shown a number of distinctive benefits which have fuelled their popularity, and many people making use of the implants or looking to take advantage of their many benefits ask if they can have these dentures fitted to both arches, and in this article we look at whether this can be arranged.

Can I have all-on-4 implants fitted to both my upper and lower jaw?

All-on-4 implants are designed to maximise bone to implant contact, which allows for the use of 4 implants compared to as many as 10 needed by other forms of dental implant technology.

It is recommended that if you need two arches of prosthetic teeth (one for the lower and one for the upper jaw), you do them at the same time. All-on-4 implants can be used if those are the ones you want and are most comfortable with, and in fact, in many cases all-on-4 implants may be appropriate whether other types of dental implant are not. This is because of the aforementioned use of only 4 implants, which can be suitable for people who have lost some bone in their jaw, a common effect of missing or lost teeth.

By fitting both arches you allow your dentist an opportunity to design and engineer your prosthesis in such a manner that both the upper and lower set of dentures complement one another for the best aesthetic and functional results. A matching set of implants and dentures will most notably have a complementary biting plane, which would make the feel of the artificial teeth more natural when it comes to the biting motion and eating food.
