At Dental Studios Scotland we offer the state of the art All-on-4 implant system for patients who have a large number of missing teeth. All-on-4 restores full function to the mouth and enables patients to enjoy their new smiles straight away!
The All-on-4 treatment is often known as ‘same day teeth’.

How Does The All-on-4 Implant System Work?
Normally, at least 6 implants are required to support a full arch of new teeth. However, with the ground-breaking All-on-4 implant system only 4 implants are actually required. All-on-4 implants are able to bear an entire arch due to their specific angle positioning at the front of the mouth, where the bone is strongest.
How the All-on-4 Implant System works:
- Two implants are placed at the front of the mouth
- Two implants are placed at the back of the mouth
- The front implants are positioned vertically
- The implants found at the back are placed at 45 degree angles
- The system uses the dense bone at the front of the mouth to provide maximum support for the arch.
- The implants are attached to the new restorations within the same day
- The patient is then able to show off their brand new smile.
