All-on-4® treatment concept is an innovative technique that uses only four to six dental implants to support a whole arch of prosthetic teeth. Two of the implants are placed in the jaw at an angle; because of these angled implants, patients with jawbone loss may be candidates for a full arch restoration even if they are not candidates for traditional dental implant surgery.
Benefits of All-on-4® Treatment Concept
The All-on-4® treatment concept involves inserting anterior implants vertically and two posterior implants at an angle, allowing them to maximize the amount of support they get from the existing bone without the need for bone grafting. The fixed prosthesis that attaches to the implants is more secure and stable than a traditional denture.
Another advantage of All-on-4® treatment concept is that both the surgical implant placement and the prosthetic attachment (temporary) can be done in one visit. This makes the All-on-4® treatment concept more convenient and cost-effective, and it also minimizes the pain post-surgery as the teeth rest on the implants and not on the gum tissue like traditional dentures.
Full arch restorations are more stable than traditional dentures because they are secured in place with dental implants. They won’t slip, irritate your gums, or interfere with your ability to speak or eat. You won’t have to take out your full arch restoration every night because it is fixed. Most importantly, a full arch restoration will preserve the bone in your jaw, leading to a stronger bite, improved oral health, and a more youthful appearance.
