All-On-Four Dental Implant Technique

The "All-on-Four" is a dental implant technique designed to provide a full arch of teeth replacement using only four strategically placed implants in the jaw. This approach is often used for individuals who have lost most or all of their teeth in one arch (either upper or lower) and are seeking a fixed, stable, and functional set of teeth

    Here's how the All-on-Four procedure works:

  • Implant Placement: Four dental implants are strategically positioned in the jawbone. The two implants toward the front are placed vertically, while the two implants toward the back are inserted at an angle. This angulation helps maximize contact with the available bone and provides stability for the restoration.
  • Immediate Loading: In many cases, a temporary or provisional denture is attached to the implants immediately after their placement. This allows patients to leave the dental office with a functional set of teeth on the same day as the implant surgery.
  • Healing and Osseointegration: Over the next several months, the implants gradually bond with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This fusion provides a strong foundation for the permanent restoration.
  • Final Restoration: After the healing period, a final set of customized and permanent teeth is fabricated. These teeth are typically made from high-quality materials and designed to resemble natural teeth in appearance and function.

    The All-on-Four technique offers several advantages:

  • Immediate Improvement: Patients can experience an immediate improvement in their appearance, speech, and ability to chew after the temporary restoration is attached.
  • Minimized Bone Grafting: The angulated placement of the implants often allows for optimal utilization of existing bone, reducing the need for bone grafting procedures.
  • Fixed Solution: The final restoration is securely anchored to the implants, providing a stable and fixed set of teeth that do not need to be removed for cleaning.
  • Time Efficiency: The All-on-Four procedure often reduces the overall treatment time compared to traditional implant methods.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: The technique's efficiency can also make it a cost-effective option for patients seeking a full arch restoration.
