Our dentist Paul has been away on an Advanced Implantology course With Dr Andrew Moore in Chelmsford, finding out the latest techniques on Same Day Implants and the management of the surrounding tissues.
The ‘All-on-4 implant system’ is a when a fixed bridge or denture components are fitted onto 4 dental implants in one day and are not removable by the patient. This is sometimes known as “fixed teeth in a day”.
Implant-retained dentures using a technique known as “SynCone”. Between 4 (lower jaw) to 6 (upper jaw) dental implants are placed in the jaw which have tapered posts fitted to them. These tapered posts that are attached to the implants lock tightly into place with a coping (cap) that is fabricated into the base of the denture. This tight connection between the post and the cap help to support and secure the denture for use on the same day.
