All-on-4® Aftercare

Caring for your new smile

Once your final teeth are fitted, the simple and straightforward Next Smile care regime should be followed to support your treatment outcomes. 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 care before, during and after your procedure is designed to give you the confidence to easily maintain your new teeth. Your Next Smile Australia treatment team will provide you with recommendations suited to your own situation and provide advice for 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 support positive outcomes from your All-on-4® Dental Implants treatment.

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 can discuss care options with you.

Book regular professional cleans

Your Next Smile Australia All-on-4® dental surgeon will recommend at least two check-ups and cleans every six months to ensure your implants and teeth are functioning as they are intended and maintaining optimal placement.

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.
