Is It Possible to Get All-on-Four Dental Implants in Just Half Your Mouth?

Is it possible to get All-on-Four Dental Implants in just part of your mouth? That's certainly a fair question and one that many people have asked us. The short answer is yes! If you don't need implants in your entire mouth, having implants in either the top bottom half only, will give you the lease on life you've been looking for.

All-on-Four Dental Implants are a complete arch of prosthetic teeth attached to your gum with an implant. The implants are sturdy an durable titanium rods that are secured into the jaw bone, either in the upper, lower or both parts of the mouth. Once the implants are secured, an arch of natural looking teeth is permanently secured to the implants. The entire procedure is done in one day.

We Believe in Your Smile!

Hello Smile Centre Family,

We are working hard at keeping all of our patients and team members updated as we try to adapt to this daily-changing situation.

SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS:

As you know, at this time, all elective procedures - including general dentistry and hygiene appointments - are still being suspended for at least the next few weeks. If you have an appointment in April, you can consider it cancelled. Our team is trying hard to reach out during this week as well. At this time, we are not rescheduling surgery appointments or regular dental and hygiene appointments until we have a better grip on when things will be returning to “normal”.

We look forward to seeing you back at the Smile Centre once we’re able to open our doors again. We will be adding extra time to accommodate the need that has been created by this unforeseen interruption; don’t worry! Your health is important to us and we will work overtime to ensure all our patients are accommodated.

EMERGENCY APPOINTMENTS:

Under the guidelines from the Ministry of Health and RCDSO, we must screen carefully and minimize patient contact, but we are accommodating emergency patients on a case-by-case basis. If you have a dental emergency, or think you may be experiencing symptoms that could become urgent, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are monitoring messages regularly; the easiest way to reach any of our clinic locations is via text message. 

A dental emergency consists of severe pain, swelling, uncontrolled bleeding or infection. If you think you are experiencing an emergency, please send us a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We have been working hard to find a way to help as many people as possible with minimal contact and still provide optimal care, so we are introducing virtual consultations with a dentist in order to be able to speak to you face-to-face.

We are currently seeing patients at our Maple location only!

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER:

We are all in this together. We will come away from this situation stronger and more appreciative than ever of the tiny conveniences that we all take for granted every day. Perhaps more family togetherness will become the new normal; maybe this will all be a lesson in taking a step back and appreciating the things we have around us.

We Believe in Your SMILE,

Your Smile Centre Team
