What is the All-on-4® treatment concept?
The All-on-4® treatment concept refers to the replacement of all teeth on as few as FOUR dental implants, which will support them. This revolutionary technique allows surgeons to gain optimal results as they provide the required support for total rehabilitation of the mouth. By tilting the back implants to a 45-degree angle, it helps overcome bone deficiencies often found on the back jaws, eliminating the need for bone grafting.
When our specialists performs the All-on-4® treatment concept, we use the Nobel Clinician program as a tool for guidance. This program allows us to perform a blueprint of the surgery prior to the actual surgery-taking place. The program also helps our surgeons find optimal placement for the implants, maximizing function and integration for patients. It also acts as an information tool to show patients how the process will take place.
What are Dental Implants?
Implants are safe, cost effective options for replacing missing teeth
A Dental Implant replaces the tooth root and builds a stable foundation for a crown, bridge or replacement solutions for a toothless jaw. Once inserted into position, it looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth. This small post measuring only a few millimeters long is firmly anchored and integrated into the jawbone.
When we replace a full set of teeth, often referred to as full arch rehabilitation, whether in the upper or lower jaws or both, we do not need to place an implant under every tooth. We can place 2 implants in the front of the arch and 2 in the back at an intended angle, and together these will form the foundation required to support the prosthesis. Having tilted implants in the back helps avoid the need for bone grafting in those usually poor jawbone areas.
What are the advantages of the All-on-4® treatment concept?
- Improved appearance
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Teeth in a day
- Shortened treatment duration
- Avoid bone grafting
- Less expensive to maintain
