All-on-4 is a prosthodontic procedure that delivers a stable, long-term fixed solution compared to removable dentures.
All-on-4 uses only four implants to secure real-looking teeth for multiple decades. Following the conventional concept of dental implants, All-on-4 uses individual implants that act as artificial tooth roots that help dentures look and feel closer to natural teeth.
The hybrid dentures are fixed onto the implant but can be removed, so if you are a denture-wearer, you’ll never have to worry about your dentures slipping again.
The price of the all-on treatment can vary. Prices are subject to change depending on the number of implants placed and the final restoration material for the new teeth.
As a rough indication, patients can expect to pay £14,000 per arch of missing teeth. Here at Mint Dental, for single implants, we charge £2,950. The cost includes the implant, crown, abutment, surgery, the dentist’s time and all of your appointments. More.

Our dental clinicians place implants (prosthetics) into your jawbone and then attach a fixed denture to the implants. And unlike many conventional implant procedures, the ‘all-on’ procedure suits the most complex missing teeth cases.
All on 4 does not require sufficient bone at the implant’s site. The revolutionary method is hailed as incredible for complex patient cases who might otherwise require extensive bone grafting and sinus augmentations. And just like its name, All-on-4 uses a hybrid denture bridge of teeth that attaches to only four, or in some cases, six (all-on-six) implants.
With dental implants, the more we use in combination treatments like this, the stronger and more stable the restoration becomes because more pressure is distributed evenly across the jaw. And the benefits of using a bridge, in this case, mean that patients do not need to purchase an implant for every missing tooth (which would certainly add up).
Therefore, the all-on procedure is quicker, less complicated, and more affordable than using individual implants per gap.
When you choose Mint Dental Clinic, you instantly gain access to our incredible dentists, who use advanced equipment to diagnose your problem faster and more accurately than ever before.
It’s no news that denture wearers in the UK are unhappy with dentures. Not just how they look but how they function and feel. And while your mouth can get used to this new way of living, the All-on-Four method aims to remove eating and speaking limitations that provide patients a new sense of freedom.
Therefore, the rise of All-on-Four has hit the UK as it offers the perfect alternative to uncomfortable and loose dentures. And as the procedure is designed to provide a stable solution to total tooth loss, patients can choose to replace a single arch of missing teeth or both.
Mint Dental is proud to offer free consultations with one of our regular dentists. However, if you’re looking for professional advice, as is often the case with complex total tooth loss cases, a consultation fee of £75 is charged.
You’ll meet with one of our most talented implant dentists, who has undergone extensive training to be regarded as an expert in dental implant surgery. During your consultation, the dentist will examine and scan the mouth for suitability and, at the same time, answer any questions or concerns you might have about the upcoming procedure.
If you are new to our practice, this first step is for us to gain a better idea and insight into how your mouth works. We’ll do this by gathering a proper dental and oral health history and any specific special measures or requirements.
If you decide that you wish to proceed with the surgery, we will conduct a CT scan that will highlight the best position in the jaw for the implants to be successfully placed. From here, we will get you booked in for your implant placement appointment.
Four, six or eight implants (depending on your requirements) will be inserted into the jaw using small titanium screws that will retain them. In typical circumstances, the back implants are angled 30 to 45 degrees from the biting plane, where the implant can be placed in front of the maxillary sinus in the upper jaw.
The specific angling and position of this placement method reduce the need for sufficient bone quality and density in the jaw. So, patients who were unsuitable for conventional implant treatment in the past would be perfect candidates for the All-on-4 or All-on-6 method.
For nervous or anxious patients, please note that it is possible to use a local anaesthetic to reduce any discomfort if you prefer.
With Mint Dental, you’ll never leave our surgery without being fully informed and advised on the best follow-up care. Our existing patients know that we go the extra mile whatever the treatment. So if you have any issues or are not fully confident about your advice, please contact us with any problems.
The essential aftercare measure is to keep up your effective oral health routine, like brushing your teeth twice a day. Dental implants require no special care or maintenance. But we recommend using a good quality, soft-bristle toothbrush to clean your teeth.
We advise that All-on-4 patients visit the dentist every six months. You should also regularly undergo hygienist appointments to ensure your mouth remains a safe and healthy space for the implants to thrive.
Even though All on 4 is a graftless solution, it does not mean all dental patients are typically a good fit.
Sometimes, those candidates with a poor oral health history or those with underlying conditions that might impact their healing rate following surgery are typically not very good candidates for the procedure.
The All-on-4 procedure is ideal for patients experiencing total tooth loss, having few natural teeth or denture wearers looking for a more stable, long-term solution to missing teeth.
