Are you considering All On 4 dental implants but unsure if you’re eligible? Understanding how certain health conditions can impact your candidacy is essential. Let’s explore various health issues that may affect your eligibility for All On 4 implants. Discover why a thorough assessment of your health status is crucial before undergoing this transformative dental procedure.

Understanding All On 4 Implants

All On 4 dental implants offer a transformative solution for individuals dealing with extensive tooth loss. This innovative approach involves the placement of just four dental implants to support a full arch of fixed prosthetic teeth, providing enhanced stability, functionality, and aesthetics compared to traditional dentures.

Significance of Health Conditions Assessment

Assessing health conditions is paramount before undergoing All On 4 implant treatment. Certain medical issues can impact the success and longevity of implants, making it essential for dental professionals to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of patients’ health status.

Common Health Conditions

Certain health conditions can impact a patient’s eligibility for All On 4 dental implants. Understanding these conditions is crucial for individuals considering this procedure. Here are some common health issues that may affect eligibility:

  1. Health Conditions Affecting All On 4 Eligibility - Brooklands Dental ClinicCardiovascular Diseases: Conditions such as hypertension and heart disease can have significant implications for dental implant surgery. These conditions may affect the healing process and increase the risk of complications during and after surgery. Patients with cardiovascular diseases should undergo a thorough evaluation by their healthcare provider to assess their suitability for All On 4 implants.
  2. Autoimmune Disorders: Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are autoimmune disorders that can impact bone density and immune function. These factors can affect the success of dental implants, including All On 4 implants. Patients with autoimmune disorders should consult with their healthcare provider to determine if they are suitable candidates for implant surgery.
  3. Osteoporosis: Osteoporosis is a condition characterised by reduced bone density, which can weaken the jawbone and compromise the stability of dental implants. Patients with osteoporosis may require additional measures to support implant placement and ensure successful outcomes. It’s essential for individuals with osteoporosis to discuss their condition with our dental implant team before proceeding with All On 4 implants.
  4. Health Conditions Affecting All On 4 Eligibility - Brooklands Dental ClinicDiabetes Mellitus: Poorly controlled diabetes can pose challenges for implant surgery. High blood sugar levels may impede the body’s ability to heal properly, increasing the risk of infections and other complications post-surgery. Patients with diabetes should work closely with their healthcare team to manage their condition effectively before undergoing dental implant treatment.
  5. Oral Health Conditions: Gum disease and untreated tooth decay can undermine the success of dental implants. These oral health issues can lead to inflammation, infection, and bone loss, which can affect the stability and longevity of implants. Patients should address any existing oral health problems before undergoing All On 4 implant treatment to optimize their chances of success.

While the presence of these health conditions may not necessarily disqualify individuals from All On 4 treatment, they may require additional precautions and careful management to ensure successful outcomes. Dental professionals will evaluate each case individually to determine suitability.

Assessment Process

At Brooklands Dental Clinics, before proceeding with All On 4 implant surgery, patients undergo a thorough evaluation of their medical history and current health status. This assessment helps identify any potential risks and allows for personalised treatment planning.

In cases where certain health conditions pose risks for All On 4 implants, alternative treatments or modifications to the procedure may be recommended. These could include bone grafting, adjunctive therapies, or alternative implant systems.

Open communication between patients and our dental implant team is vital to ensure the best possible care.

Had my first hygienist appointment with Sarah yesterday. She deserves the rating, my teeth look and feel clean and smooth. Sarah was gentle and thorough, hugely important to those of us with a fear of the invasiveness of dentistry. Next appointment booked!

I haven’t been to the dentist in over 10 years due to a very bad experience. My mother In law recommended Brooklands dental and I’m so pleased I listened to her. My teeth are in an awful state, I had a lot of tears leading up to my appointment and I cried in there too but Kirsty the receptionist was very reassuring, so kind and checked I was ok whilst I waited. Ana was amazing, she could see I was nervous but kept me calm, explained throughout what she was doing, put a dental plan in place with no pressure to commit to it. She didn’t judge the state of my teeth and was just so lovely and reassuring. I feel very confident that she is going to help me get my teeth and gums back on track so thank you so so much for your help and understanding

I don’t usually write reviews, I’m doing it for 2 reasons. Firstly I can not find any words to thank, The hygienist ❤️Julieanne ❤️I have seen her twice this week. 40 minutes for first visit and today was an 1hr. Due to circumstances, and being soooo frightened, and suffering with severe anxiety, I let my teeth get it to a state, which has caused bone loss and gum disease. I have seen many hygienists in my time. Unfortunately due to my fear and anxiety, I was always given a quick 20 minute clean, due to the sensitivity I had, and lack of patience from the hygienist, even with the injecting of the gums, I was into much pain. The only hygienist in 20 years plus, Julianne has been the only one that could do what I needed for years, and gave me a deep clean. She didn’t rush, spent time to numb my gums, she is an extremely gentle person, but got the job done. She would not allow me to have any discomfort. After my first visit on Tuesday, I was excited that there was a cancellation today, can’t believe I said that 😂, even though I was anxious, I trusted her. I have actually done it. The other reason for this review, is for all the other people out there like me. If you have sensitive teeth, the last thing we think we can do is have our teeth cleaned, especially under the gums. Don’t worry, you really can, it all depends how qualified the hygienist is. It’s easy for me to say this now, and yes I will be anxious on my next appointment, but she really didn’t hurt me at all. Book with Julieanne, even though you might of experienced a painful experience before, hate the dentist, suffer with anxiety, and never been able to get a deep clean due to the pain from the water, noice, vibration. I had mine done pain free. I know I’ve got to try to save my teeth, and will be quite happy to go to Julianne So from someone who really knows, don’t need to be scared and see an exceptional lady. Thank you so much Julieanne.Love Julie x

Attentive, professional service. Sarah ( dental hygienist) is both skilled & knowledgable and did a fantastic job & assisted by an equally friendly dental nurse ( sorry I didn't have her name).

I have a real phobia of dentists but needed a tooth extracted so very reluctantly made an appointment here. All I can say is from the time I stepped inside the reception area until the time all my treatment had finished - the service was excellent. The staff are all so caring and understanding and made me feel at ease. All very friendly too. I have recommended a friend who has already made an appointment. I will be back in 6 months for a check up - which I have never done before. I always wait for a problem before I go to the dentist.

I’ve been registered here for many years and every time I visit the service is outstanding, as soon as you walk in your put at ease by the great staff on reception and it continues throughout. I don’t live local but I wouldn’t go anywhere else

Very impressive clinic with knowledgeable staff. Very clean, welcoming and modern tech gave me confidence. The dental expert spent time explaining in detail about my issues and the options available to me, didn't feel rushed at all.
