All-on-4™ is a revolutionary concept providing patients with functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure. This technology was developed by Nobel Biocare and allows for collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the surgeon. The fabrication of temporary replacement teeth is completed prior to the surgery. In most cases the teeth can be retained on the implants the same day the implants are placed. This benefits the patient in that there is often less postoperative discomfort, less swelling and less bruising. After a healing period, your dentist will place the final teeth.
All-on-4 offers you many advantages.
- A cost effective solution. Your new replacement teeth often require only 4 implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.
- Reduced need for bone grafting. The special tilting of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, typically making bone grafting unnecessary.
- Faster treatment and healing time. Temporary teeth can often be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
Scientifically proven and documented, All-on-4 treatment is supported by good clinical outcomes from studies over a decade with favorable results.
