All On 4 Implants
All on 4 implants
The all on 4 concept is a revolutionary change which may prove to be an ideal option for patients that would otherwise require a full plastic denture or multiple implants.
As the name implies as few as 4 implants may be all that is required to act as a foundation on which a fixed set of teeth are placed. This fixed restoration will appear and function just like a beautiful set of natural looking teeth in very few visits
This technique is not only minimally invasive but is more cost effective than replacing multiple missing teeth with implant supported bridges. It is routine to place as few as 4 implants in the bottom jaw bone due to the density of bone and lack of other anatomical structures that may interfere with placement. The top jaw bone may require more implants depending on the location of the sinus spaces and quality of bone available.
Other advantages include:
- Less invasive than traditional implants
- Procedure can be performed in fewer visits
- Can be performed on patients who have limited bone for multiple implants
