Process 1: Consultation, Assessment and Planning

Initial Consultation

Your initial appointment awaits at Abbeymount Dental Care in Edinburgh, ensuring ease of access. Participate in a thorough consultation with our skilled implant dentists to address your dental issues, preferences, and possible treatments. Feel free to ask questions to gain a clear understanding of the All on 4 procedure and our dedicated team.

During the examination, our implantologist, Omar, will assess your remaining teeth and gums, capturing photographs to evaluate whether same-day dental implants are optimal. At Abbeymount Dental Care, we understand dental anxiety and prioritise your comfort. Our aim is to restore smiles and boost confidence by addressing various reasons for needing implants. Explore our independently verified patient reviews for reassurance.


Following the initial consultation, if you and our dentist agree on the suitability of All on 4 dental implants, the next stage involves a computerised CBCT scan. This detailed X-ray provides our implant team with precise images of your jaws and teeth, allowing us to analyse bone quantity, location, and quality beneath the gums. This step confirms your candidacy for All on 4 dental implants. Notably, our implants are often suitable for individuals with severe gum disease and jawbone loss, eliminating the need for bone graft surgery. In cases where All on 4 is not deemed suitable, alternative solutions will be discussed.


Once you’ve committed to the All on 4 dental implant procedure, we will schedule your surgery, prioritising your preferred timings. Appointments for pre and post-surgery, such as impression-taking, are also coordinated. Regular communication ensures your reassurance and full awareness of each stage. If needed, we will liaise with your existing doctor or dentist for seamless care. Prior to the procedure, a virtual surgery is conducted, including a 3D model of your jawbone for meticulous planning. Our thorough preparations aim to provide you with absolute peace of mind throughout the process.

Process 2: Surgery Day

During the surgical session, All on 4 Dental Implants are efficiently installed, rejuvenating your smile and confidence in just a few hours. Our dentist extracts any remaining teeth and inserts implants, providing sturdy foundations for new artificial teeth. You’ll also receive temporary, lifelike teeth for immediate aesthetic enhancement. If opting for sedation, it’s advisable to have a companion for assistance after the procedure.


The All on 4 Dental Implant surgery begins with optional sedation for a pain-free experience, accompanied by gentle numbing. Most patients opt for conscious sedation, ensuring a relaxed and comfortable state akin to a dream. You’ll remain awake, often with no memory of the procedure. Administered by our skilled anaesthetists, conscious sedation is secure and free from common risks associated with general anaesthesia. Choosing not to undergo sedation doesn’t compromise the pain-free nature of the implant placement procedure.

Placement of Implants

Normally, we insert four implants in each jaw using the All on 4 method. Each implant is positioned strategically to maximise existing bone, guaranteeing precise placement and utmost stability for the tailored artificial tooth bridge. Our state-of-the-art dental implant system features an integrated angle, reinforcing the base for your new prosthetic teeth with increased durability.

New Teeth Placement

Following your dental implant procedure, precise measurements are obtained, and our expert laboratory technicians fabricate your bespoke teeth while you unwind. Tailored for optimal fit and aesthetics on the same day as treatment, these replacement teeth not only enhance your look but also reinstate bite and chewing functionality, facilitating the recovery journey. The implant dentist affixes and stabilises your new teeth with the dental implants, enabling you to marvel at your radiant new smile in the mirror for the first time!

Take-home Implant Care Kit

Upon departure, our dentist provides a personalised implant care kit, featuring essential medications and oral hygiene items. Comprehensive instructions, including post-care expectations, are included. Our after-hours telephone numbers are available for any questions or concerns.

Process 3: Healing & Permanent Teeth Attachment

Following the procedure, your new teeth will remain firmly in position day and night as your bone fuses with the implants.

Approximately three months later, we will swap them with your permanent set during a non-invasive session. Caring for your implants and new teeth is straightforward. It’s essential to follow dietary guidelines and uphold good oral hygiene in the first two months to ensure successful implant recovery. Be assured, we’ll offer all the essential information and guidance you need.
