All-on-4® Treatment Concept
Dental Implants with the All-on-4® treatment concept
Dental implants are inserted to take the place of your teeth’s roots. Similar to the roots of teeth, implants stimulate the jawbone and prevent further bone loss. When performing dental implant surgery, Dr. DiVincenzo and Associates uses the all on four approach. The all-on-4 Dental Implant refers to all teeth being supported on four dental implants completely rehabilitating a compromised arch with fixed prosthesis. This approach can be performed on the top, bottom, or bath jaws.
The procedure involves placing 4 implants through the jaw, with a horse shoe shaped porcelain bridge and does not have an artificial gum line. This fixed prosthesis will allow a person’s mouth to perform all the functions that it would with all natural teeth.
Traditional dental implants are an improvement on dentures but they still require an extensive amount of implants in the jaw in order to give a person a full set of functional teeth. The traditional l implant procedure can be extensive, expensive and uncomfortable to a patient. In contrast, the All on Four approach is a same day procedure that only requires four implants per jaw. A new set of teeth are then fastened to the implants and ready for immediate use!
What is the All-on-4® treatment concept?
The All-on-4® treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graftless solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery. Characteristics include:
- Full-arch rehabilitation with only four implants. Two straight anterior implants and two implants tilted up to 45º in the posterior.
- Immediate Function (fixed provisional bridge). For patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of implants Graftless procedure Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants, utilizing available bone.
