All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants was developed in the 2000s as a way to best restore the full arches of the upper and lower jaws. The procedure uses only four implants to secure all teeth in place hence, the name All-on-4. All-on-4 was developed by implant manufacturer Nobel Biocare and European implant dentist Paulo Malo using bio-mechanics, computer simulation and clinical research. Their results provided patients with high quality full teeth restoration without the use of bone grafting in the shortest time possible. The All-on-4 procedure provides especially effective restoration of the upper jaw because longer and stronger implants can be secured in the back part of the jaw.
Previous treatments required patients to receive a total of six or more implants, with treatment extending throughout 18 months of treatment. The patients were then forced to leave the office without any teeth or a poor fitting temporary denture for over a year! With the All-on-4 procedure, we make sure our patients leave our office smiling- with a brand new set of replacement teeth!
