ALL-ON-4 IMPLANT TECHNIQUE
The technique of All-on-4 dental implants uses only 4 implants to fix and secure a unit of 12-14 Nobel Procera Bridge (Sweden) or Nobel Procera Hybrid Prosthesis (Sweden) in completely teeth-less (edentulous) patients.
With this technique, the edentulous patients can get a new set of prosthetic teeth and regain their everyday confidence.
Generally, when tooth loss occurs, it is associated with loss of jawbone. This loss of jawbone creates a problem when dentists try to reconstruct it. And to successfully place an implant, a bone must be transplanted from another part of the body. This bone transplantation requires additional surgery that may not be supported by the patient's health condition.
In such cases, the All-on-4 dental implants technique is the best solution. In this procedure, the customized teeth are fixed on 4 titanium implants only. The titanium implants are fixed into the basal bone. These 4 implants act as pillars and support the bridge of 12-14 prosthetic teeth.
This technique uses the existing bone, however scarce it is, and thus avoids bone grafting, sinus lift surgery, nerve repositioning on the lower jaw, etc.
In the All-on-4 technique, two specially designed posterior implants are angulated at approximately 45 degrees to avoid the sinus cavity in the upper jaw and nerve canal in the lower jaw. Consequently, it results in a graftless solution for teeth-less patients.
The All-on-4 dental implants treatment gets its name from the method it uses - fixing at least 12 teeth (bridge) on each jaw on 4 implants only. This treatment uses screwed-on CAD-CAM constructed dental prosthesis namely - the Nobel Procera Crown and Bridge (Sweden) or the Nobel Procera Hybrid Prosthesis (Sweden).
