This advanced pattern of rehabilitating a patient who has no teeth in the mouth or requires extraction of all remaining teeth due to decay (caries) or gum disease (periodontitis) was pioneered by Dr Malo in Portugal. This type of rehabilitation involves placement of 4 dental implants in specific angulation in each arch (upper and lower jaw) and bespoke bridge made for the patient fitted on the same day. This treatment has been extensively studied and has been proven to give a result of more than 95% success.
1. I have been advised that I do not have enough bone for implant placement in the past. Will I be able to have this procedure done?
There is a wide variety of bone grafting procedures available but in most cases Dr Prasath is able to rehabilitate patients with out any major grafting. A consultation with Dr Prasath is recommended before arriving to a conclusion.
2. Will I be left without teeth during the procedure?
No, you will be fitted with a fixed temporary bridge that same day.
3. How long does it take for the entire treatment to finish?
It can vary between 2-8 months based on the healing of the bone. Should there be any need for advanced grafting procedures it can extend the process by another 6-8 months.
4. Will there be any plastic palate extending to the roof of the mouth?
No, this is hybrid bridge and does not involve any palate.
5. Will I be able to afford?
We have easy payment options or you can get it on 0% finance option and the payment will be spread over 24 months.
