Aftercare for your sparkling new smile

Once your final teeth are fitted, a simple and straightforward care regime will ensure this is the smile you’ll enjoy for the rest of your life. Although your teeth will not be affected by tooth decay, unlike natural teeth, you’ll still need to look after your oral hygiene and get your teeth cleaned regularly by a professional.

Our unmatched level of care before, during and after your procedure will give you the confidence you need to maintain your new teeth. Your Next Smile Australia treatment coordinator will provide you with recommendations suited to your own situation and give you advice on diet and ongoing maintenance.

And reassuringly, your new, natural-looking teeth will be fully covered by our Next Smile Treatment Warranty, provided you follow our recommended maintenance schedule.

General All-on-4® aftercare

Since your All-on-4® Dental Implants are made to look and feel like natural teeth, that is how you’ll look after them.

Here are some basic aftercare and maintenance tips to ensure your All-on-4® Dental Implants last you a lifetime.

Brush your All-on-4® Teeth/Bridge as though they were your real teeth

Just like with natural teeth, you should brush your All-on-4® Dental Implants twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush. Make sure you brush right up to your gum line.

Make sure to floss and take care of your gums to prolong the life of your All-on-4® Dental Implants

Flossing is a necessary step in good oral hygiene, whether you have real teeth or implants.

Flossing helps to get rid of food that gets trapped between your teeth, reducing a build-up of plaque and tartar.

To keep your gums healthy, you can also use a gum stimulator, which is designed to promote healthy gums by stimulating blood flow. It helps to dislodge food particles that may have gotten stuck between your implants and your gums.

If you find that food gets stuck in between your gums and implants often, you can let your dentist know, and they will provide you with a solution.

Book regular professional cleans

Your Next Smile Australia All-on-4® Surgeon will recommend at least two check-ups and cleans every six months to ensure your implants are functioning properly and maintaining correct placement.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to look after All-on-4® dental implants?

Since All-on-4® dental implants look and function like regular teeth, that is how you should treat them. The best way to look after your All-on-4® implants is to clean them twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush, floss once a day and use antibacterial mouthwash once a day. You can also go the extra mile and purchase a gum stimulator to promote healthy gums by stimulating blood flow. You will also need to get them professionally cleaned every six months.

How often should I clean my All-on-4® dental implants?

All-on-4® dental implants function like natural teeth (although they aren’t prone to decay), so you should brush them twice a day, floss once a day and use an antibacterial mouthwash once a day. Since plaque and tartar build-up can still occur with implants, they will also need to be professionally cleaned every six months.

How often do All-on-4® dental implants require checkups?

Regular checkups and cleaning every six months can help your dentist ensure your implants, gums, and teeth remain healthy. A professional cleaning will help remove plaque and tartar, maintain your implants and overall oral health and also prevent issues from arising in the future.

Do I need a specialist dentist for All-on-4® checkups?

Yes, you will need to visit a dentist who has been trained in All-on-4® to check up on and clean your implants. If you live near a Next Smile Australia All-on-4® Super Clinic location, you can go there. Otherwise, you can visit one of our Accredited Partners in a location closer to your home.

What’s a good regime for All-on-4® aftercare?

Your treatment co-ordinator will provide you with an aftercare regime designed specifically for you after your surgery. However, after your All-on-4® surgery, it’s important to take it easy for a few days. Drink plenty of water, rest and take painkillers when you need them. After surgery, you can clean your teeth as you normally would, twice a day with floss and antibacterial mouthwash.
