This is a new alternative for patients that want to replace their denture with fixed teeth. Conventional implant treatment to replace all teeth usually takes between 6 - 10 implants in order to have enough strength for a fixed implant bridge. However, in the all-on-4 treatment the end implants are placed at a 45 degree angle, it increases their strength and ability to support a fixed bridge. This allows us to be able to anchor a fixed bridge with less implants than normally used.
The all-on-4 implants can be immediately loaded, instead of waiting months to heal. The fixed provisional bridge can be completed on the same day......!!
This is one of the most exciting options we have ever had in implant dentistry because the goal of most patients who wear dentures is to be able to go back to a time when they had fixed teeth. For many patients, due to cost, this was not possible. With All-on-Four fixed implant teeth, many more patients now have the option to quickly, and with significant cost reductions, get fixed permanent teeth.
