All on 4
Today’s state-of-the-art implant systems enable a minimum number of implants to support a maximum number of teeth. This means that with as few as four implants, you will be able to support a full arch of fixed, non-removable replacement teeth. This incredible life-changing event can be completed in a single day!
All-on-4 implants offer a number of distinct advantages over traditional counterparts. Other dental implants will require anywhere between 6 to 10 implants per jaw, which can be unpleasant for a patient who will need to have 6 to 10 separate incisions made into their gums, followed by the same number of holes drilled into their lower jaw.
How Does It Work?
Of the four implants used, 2 are fixed vertically to the front of the jaw where the bone is thickest. Like other implants, a hole will be drilled into the bone into which the implants will be placed. These will then be left over a recovery period to fuse to the bone, forming a solid, stable, and long-lasting implant. The final 2 are affixed further back in the jaw, and angled so as to avoid important nerves and arteries. Together these 4 fixings can provide an effective base for the attachment of prosthetic teeth without the hassle, inconvenience, and discomfort of many more implants.
All-on-4 allows for the easy and stable attachment of full arches of teeth, this particular type of implant means that any prosthetic teeth fitted will bit the natural shape of your jaw, feeling much more natural and comfortable.
