“All on Four”
All-on-Four is the solution for patients who want a fixed restoration and would like a more affordable option than the usual 6-8 implants with bridgework. The revolutionary All-on-Four technique allows patients to receive a full fixed (non-removable) bridge on as few as 4 dental implants - all in the same day! Many of those patients who have been told they they are not dental implant candidates due to bone loss may now able to restore their smiles by utilizing this technique. Most denture patients as well as patients with failing crown and bridgework, and even those with severe bone loss from periodontal disease may now have the option to get their smile back with this technique
The All-on-Four technique uses two implants placed in the dense bone that remains in the front part of the jaws and two implants placed in the back of the arch on an angle to avoid the sinus cavities in the upper jaw and the nerve canal in the lower jaw. This procedure has virtually eliminated the need for costly and time consuming bone grafting, along with the discomfort and prolonged healing time which often accompanies these additional procedures. Today, thanks to the All-on-FourTM technique, it’s now possible for patients to have a non-removable bridge placed the same day they receive their implants, and almost always without the need for bone grafting.
