The concept of treatment “All on 4”

all on 4

Has been developed to provide patients who have lost several parts with a dental implants restoration effective and efficient using only four implants to support a immediate loading of a full prosthesis.

The concept of treatment “All on 4” offers several clear advantages to our patients:

 

Stability, even with the bone volume minimum

When tilting the two dental implants post, the more long dental implants can be used in minimum volume of bone, increase bone-implant contact and reducing the need for the increased vertical bone. The subsequent implants inclined can be anchored into the bone above, of better quality , and the reduction of cantilevered thus improving the support of the prosthesis.

The results were satisfactory

Biomechanical measurements show that the tilted implants, when a portion of the aid prosthesis, do not have a negative effect on the load distribution. The tilt of the implants has been used in clinical practice for more than a decade and has shown good results.

With a planning guided by computer software

“All on 4” treatments can be planned and carried out using a computer software guidance, ensuring accurate diagnoses, for planning and placement of the implant. Guided by the computer software allows detailed diagnostics: as the identification of bone available, the placement of the implant virtual according to the anatomical situation and needs for prosthetic devices, and request a individualized surgical template.

Prosthetic Flexibility

With a treatment “All on 4”, the patients benefit from a restoration supported by implants immediately, such as a provisional prosthesis is screwed on the implants after the surgery. Final Solutions for treatments “All on 4” include both fixed prostheses, such as: titanium implants with acrylic coating, bridge or crowns cemented to the individual structure of the bridge and removable solutions, such as prosthetic acrylic.

Increase of efficiency

Efficient flow results of treatment in treatment times shorter and greater patient satisfaction.

The form of placement of the implants, inclined in the subsequent, enables them to be placed in patients with minimal amount of bone volume, getting an initial stability that allows the realization of a prosthesis with immediate loading. Allows us to have “teeth in a day”. When tilting the implants post, we use implants of greater length, increasing the contact between the bone and the implant at the same time that we reduce the need for an increased vertical bone.
