All on 4-6 Implants
– An Innovative method of Dental Implantation
– Dental Implants in One Day
This kind of treatment is meant for the patient with his / her’s jaw bone that is lacking all of the teeth. It can be done 4 to 6 Implants, which one is better distribute the best supported for the occlusion.
The most Benefits of this method:
Immediate loading of the implants and prosthesis within a few hours, so a toothless patient can chew. Teeth in A Day.
The Disadvantages of this method.
Not appropriate for every patient – significant health issue is the most considerate concern.
Sufficient quantity and quality of initial bone is necessary.
The all-on-4 treatment concept is a prosthodontic procedure (i.e. replacement of missing teeth) that provides a permanent, screw-retained, same-day replacement for the entire upper and/or lower set of teeth with a bridge or denture.
The procedure is best for patients with significant tooth loss or decay and for people whose bone loss in the jaw area prevents them from getting conventionally oriented(vertical) dental implants. Often tooth loss is accompanied by loss of the jaw bone which posses the problem of reconstruction of the jaw bone requiring bone grafting.
The All-on-4 protocol is considered to be a graft less solution thereby avoiding the long and costly road of rebuilding bone when conventionally oriented implants are used. For the implementation to be successful, a careful analysis of the bone structure needs to be made. The most ideal way to evaluate the bone is by a CBCT scan. The All-on-4 protocol is for at least four implants to be placed in a jaw. The back implants are typically angled approximately 30 to 45 degrees from the biting plane. The implant is placed in front of the maxillary sinus in the upper jaw(maxilla) and in form of the mental nerve in the lower jaw (mandible). The head of the implant emerges in approximately the second premolar position. This will allow a molar tooth to be cantilevered posterior resulting in a denture with approximately 10-12 teeth.
The All-on-4 treatment concept owes its name to the very nature of the method. which consists of applying a dental prosthesis with at least twelve -teeth (bridge) fixed in the jaw, based only on four titanium implants.
