Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that All-on-4® is a significant investment. You may have more questions you want answering before booking your no-obligation consultation with us, which is why we have compiled our most common FAQs below.

Understandably, we have a range of frequently asked questions from potential patients and current patients. One of our most common FAQs is, “Am I a good candidate for All-on-4®?” It all depends on your situation, as everyone is different!

Take a look at our other FAQs below to learn more about All-on-4® and Next Smile Australia.

Am I a good candidate for All-on-4® dental implants?

Several factors may affect your suitability for All-on-4® dental implants. To assess your situation and determine your suitability, a Next Smile Australia certified surgeon will carefully examine your dental health and discuss your overall health, utilising CT scans of your jawbone, digital impressions and photographic imaging, and your patient history.

Considering the results of your initial consultation and assessment, they will then recommend a tailor-made treatment solution that serves your needs and preferences. In rare cases, medical conditions can interfere with your suitability for dental implants. Should our team determine that you are not a candidate for All-on-4® based on health concerns, we will recommend alternative treatment options.

Why are dental implants a better alternative to dentures and bridges?

Dental implants and the All-on-4® treatment are by far the superior options for patients suffering from tooth loss, decay or severe gum disease. Dentures are difficult to wear and function with, bridges do not feel like natural teeth, can be damaged easily and require replacement over the years.

With Next Smile Australia’s All-on-4® treatment, you’ll enjoy better outcomes in terms of functionality, look and feel. Compared to other treatment methods, All-on-4® also provides simpler maintenance and easier cleaning of your dental implants and fixed teeth. You’ll be able to live life as you did before, chewing, biting, and smiling with an entirely new, permanent set of natural-looking teeth.

All-on-4® allows for treating complex cases that were previously too difficult, if not impossible, to address. Our treatment approach gives us more flexibility to design the best-tailored solution for you.

How long does the All-on-4® Dental Implants procedure take?

Following your initial consultation with our experienced dental team to surgery with your chosen surgeon, your new teeth are fitted within 24 hours and often on the day of surgery.

Do dental implants last forever?

Dental implants are a permanent solution. But the long-term success of All-on-4® dental implants depends on you and your oral health habits. Unlike your natural teeth, dental implants will not be prone to tooth decay, but they still require you to keep up good oral hygiene and regular professional cleaning. With regular care, All-on-4® dental implants can last you a lifetime.

What is the average cost of an All-on-4® Dental Implants procedure?

Understandably, this is one of our most frequently asked questions. During an initial All-on-4® consultation at a Next Smile Australia clinic near you, we’ll fully examine your dental health and outline your estimated treatment cost.
