What is the All-on-4 method and when is it used?

In the All-on-4 procedure, four implants are installed in the upper or lower jaw, supporting the structure with decaying teeth. This procedure is an ideal choice for patients who have lost all their teeth or the remaining teeth must be extracted.

The great advantage of this method is the avoidance of bone grafting (augmentation), which makes it the best solution for patients who have a small amount of bone needed for dental implant. With this procedure, you will get a temporary prosthesis and a completely new smile on the same day, while after the implant has integrated with bone, you will get permanent implants.

Who needs the All-on-4 method?

  • Patients who are completely edentulous
  • Patients with teeth in bad condition that cannot be treated
  • Patients with mobile prosthetics that they cannot get used to
  • Patients who do not have enough bone for placing implant

With regular maintenance and check-ups, All-on-4 can be a lifetime solution to dental problems.

Likewise, it is suitable for patients with minimal bone volume needed for placing implants and are not candidates for conventional implant-prosthetic rehabilitation.

What is the warranty on implants?

A lifetime warranty on Nobel Biocare, Straumann and Neodent dental implants, and a 10-year guarantee on titanium implants, with regular maintenance and annual check-ups.

What is the difference between All-on-4 and All-on-6?

The All-on-4 procedure entails the placement of four implants in the jaw, and the All-on-6 procedure the placement of six implants. A larger number of implants guarantees greater stability, but sometimes the patient does not have enough bone base for placing six implants, so four are placed. Based on a jaw CT scan and analysis of the bone volume, the doctor will make a decision on the number implants to be placed.

Is the procedure painful?

The procedure is not pailful it is performed under local anesthesia, but for patients who are afraid, there is the possibility of conscious sedation supervised by an anesthesiologist.

How long does recovery take?

After the All-on-4 procedure, swelling and bruising are common and normal and can last up to 7 days. After the All-on-4 procedure, every patient takes painkillers and antibiotics.

What material is the All-on-4 permanent structure made of?

In dentistry, there are several materials from which fixed solutions are made: metal, titanium or BIO HPP structure. The most common structures for All-on-4 are made of cobalt-chrome (metal), titanium or BIO HPP material. Titanium is a biocompatible material, meaning that the body accepts it and enables natural integration.
