All-ON-4 ® – TEETH IN A DAY
Until the development of the All-on-4 treatment concept a full arch implant reconstruction typically involved placing 6-8 dental implants in each jaw, often with complex grafting, and delays between extraction of the teeth, placement of the implants, and fit of the bridge of six months or more.
The All-on-4 treatment protocol allows us to remove your remaining teeth, place the implants and to fit a provisional bridge all on the same day. This reduces treatment times, normally avoids the need for complex sinus bone grafting, and reduces the cost of treatment.
Whilst the treatment protocol is too new for long term studies, published 5-10 year results show excellent success rates of 94-98% survival, so whilst most all on four implant treatments last 10 years they may do far better.
The benefits of All-on-4
- Greatly reduced treatment times. Extractions, implant placement and fit of a provisional bridge being achieved in one day
- A fixed solution, no need to remove the bridges for cleaning
- Stable and secure bridges, no need to worry about your teeth moving about or dropping
- A reduced number of implants and the avoidance of complex bone grafting, giving shorter treatment times and reduced costs compared to traditional implant solutions
