What is the All-on-4 treatment concept?

The All-on-4 treatment concept is a prosthodontic (tooth replacement) procedure that uses a bridge or denture to provide a permanent, screw-retained, same-day replacement for the entire upper and lower set of teeth. Click here to learn more.

The original graftless full-arch solution on four implants

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a graft-saving solution that gives patients a fixed full-arch prosthesis the same day as surgery.

  1. Only four implants are required for full-arch rehabilitation.
  2. Two straight anterior implants and two posterior implants tilted up to 45 degrees to avoid anatomical structures.

In a single day, provide your patients with temporary teeth. Immediate Function is for patients who meet the requirements for quick implant loading.

What Is the All-on-4 Treatment Concept?

Instead of using adhesives to secure an arch of replacement teeth, this treatment concept uses dental implants. All of the replacement teeth are supported by four strategically placed dental implants, as the name implies.

This means we can replace your teeth with fewer dental implants!

How do Dental Implants Work?

Implants are one of the most widely used modern methods of tooth replacement. The root, the connector, and the crown are the three main components.

An implant’s root is a titanium rod surgically implanted into your jaw, replacing the natural tooth root. The bone in your mouth fuses around the rod as it heals, a process known as osseointegration.

Both the root and the bone become stronger as a result of this. The rest of the tooth structure is held in place by these dental implants, which are secure and long-lasting.

An abutment is a type of connector, used to secure a custom-made crown to the titanium root. However, instead of a single crown, we use a complete set of dentures in the All-on-4® Treatment Concept.

Advantages of the All-on-4 Treatment Method

This ground-breaking concept has a slew of advantages for your dental health. You can enjoy the following benefits when we use this concept to replace your teeth:

  • Longevity – Dental implants placed over thirty years ago are still as healthy, whole, and effective as they were first placed. Implants are made to last a lifetime.
  • Permanent – With an implant-supported system, you’ll never have to worry about your adhesive slipping or your snap-on denture coming loose. You won’t even have to clean and store your denture or bridge at night. It’ll feel as if you’ve got brand new teeth!
  • Convenience – These permanent teeth do not need to be removed at night or prepared in the morning. You’ll be able to wake up with your own set of comfortable, custom-made teeth, thanks to implant-supported bridges and dentures.

What is an All-on-4 consult?

All-on-four or full-jaw implants that are custom-made for your mouth. All-on-4 dental implants are intended for patients who require full upper and lower restorations due to losing most or all of their natural dentition.

How many teeth does All-on-4 have?

All-on-4, or full-arch fixed implant bridges, are sweeping the dental industry. Four to six dental implants are usually used to support these bridges, made of materials like acrylic fused to titanium, monolithic zirconia, and porcelain stacked on a cobalt-chromium frame.

How long do all four implants last?

All-in-4 implants are long-lasting. Data shows that with proper care, they can last for 20 years or longer. Your denture will wear out over time, even though the implant posts should never need to be replaced.

Which is better, All-on-4 or all on six dental implants?

The difference between all-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants is the number of implants placed in the mouth. Some dentists believe that the all-on-6 dental procedure gives the prosthetic dental arch a stronger, more stable foundation, resulting in a more comfortable, long-lasting smile.
