If your dentures are ill-fitting or uncomfortable then it’s likely that you’re researching other options. Perhaps you’ve been told by your dentist that you don’t have enough healthy bone to fit traditional dental implants. Whether this is the case or not, all-on-four-dental implants could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
What are all-on-four dental implants?
The all-on-four procedure completely restores the upper and/or lower arch by placing four dental implants in each jaw, which are fitted to a dental bridge.
This gives you a full set of permanent teeth that won’t move around and cause irritation like dentures can. Your all-on-four dental implants will look and feel completely natural.
Four titanium screws will be placed into each jaw, acting as the roots of the teeth. These bond to the bone in the same way that a real tooth root would. The dental bridge is then attached to these, giving you the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of.
The great thing about all-on-four dental implants is that they can be a successful alternative to bone augmentation, a complex surgical procedure that is sometimes needed for other types of dental implants. This minimises your time spent in surgery, and can also prevent future bone degradation caused by tooth loss and periodontal disease.
What is the price of all-on-four dental implants in the UK?
The all-on-four implant procedure is a life-changing investment that requires careful consideration. The cost for all-on-four dental implants depends on whether you need one or both jaws treated, but the starting price for full jaw dental implants in one jaw at EvoDental is £10,500.
This may sound expensive, but our pricing reflects that we use only the highest quality materials and the most advanced technology to ensure you get the results you want and deserve.
Having said this, we don’t believe that anyone should have to put up with poor oral health because of their financial situation. That’s why we offer a range of finance options to help your dream smile become a reality no matter what your circumstances.

Is the all on 4 dental implants cost cheaper abroad than the UK?
You’ll probably find that all-on-four dental implants abroad cost significantly less than in the UK.
Bear in mind that you really do get what you pay for. Repairing shoddy workmanship can cost you a lot more in the long run than what it would have done to have the work done properly in the first place.
Also, it’s worth noting that dentists abroad usually aren’t regulated in the same way as they are in the UK, and if you’re unhappy with the results, you may find it difficult to get compensation.
EvoSolution vs all-on four dental implants
The EvoSolution is a sophisticated alternative to all-on-four dental implants as our highly specialised team can add a further two implants in the pterygoid, zygomatic and nasalus areas of the upper jaw.
This not only improves the durability of all-on-four dental implants but allows for a slimmer prosthetic with improved feel and comfort for you. As the EvoSolution allows more implants to be placed in the upper jaw, this in turn means that two additional teeth can be added to the upper prosthetic.
Our EvoSolution is one of the most popular and successful alternatives to dentures, not only offering you a permanent resolution, but also transforming your self-confidence immediately.
The table below shows the benefits of the EvoSolution compared to traditional all-on-four dental implants or overdentures.
