The All-on-4® treatment concept is a dental implant solution specially designed for toothless jaws, people who find it hard to wear a denture (full plate or multiple missing teeth), or people who have multiple broken down teeth or teeth that have become loose. If you are unhappy with your dentures, the state of your teeth, or you no longer want to live without teeth, it may be the right solution for you.
The unique design of the implants and the specific placement technique means that up to 12 teeth can be held in by 4 implants. With only four dental implants, the All-on-4® treatment concept can give a patient the confidence, function, esthetics they thought they had lost forever.
This technique offers you several advantages:
- Shorter treatment time, lower costs
- The low number of implants needed for the All-on-4® treatment concept considerably reduces treatment time and often makes this solution more cost-effective than comparable treatment alternatives.
- The specific implant placement technique means that in most cases bone grafts are not necessary even in patients with very limited remaining bone. This makes the treatment easier on the patient.
- Fixed teeth from day one
Depending on your individual dental situation, your dentist can connect your implants to a temporary bridge on the day of surgery. This means you can leave the dental office with a full set of teeth and return to leading a normal life. After allowing time for the bone to knit with the implants, your dentist will exchange your temporary bridge for the final bridge. This bridge is screwed in place and can only be removed in the dental office
