All on Four Dental Implants:
The All on Four (All-on-4) dental implant system is the answer for patients who want a fixed restoration (does not come out ) of their teeth all in one day. The innovative All on Four Dental Implant system will utilize as few as 4 dental implants to support the new permanent teeth! This procedure has been a godsend for patients who have been told they are not dental implants candidates due to severe bone loss. The All on Four method uses the denser front bone and then angles the back dental implants to avoid anatomical structures. Almost all patients that have no teeth or failing teeth can become healthy and have a new smile in one day.
Why does the All-on-4 work?
The All on Four method takes advantage of the dense bone that remains in the front part of the jaws. Two implants are places in the front. The back two dental implants are place at an angle to avoid the mandibular nerve in the lower jaw and the sinus in the upper jaw. By placing the dental implants in this position it almost always eliminates the need for expensive and time consuming bone grafting. Also, the surgery avoids the discomfort and lengthy healing time of bone grafting procedures. Today, thanks to the All on Four Dental Implant protocol, it is now possible for patients to have a fixed bridge placed the same day they receive their dental implants.
