The All-on-4® treatment concept offers patients without teeth a rapid, relatively cost-effective and uncomplicated treatment using dental implants and fixed dentures. Previously, a fixed bridge required the replacement of all teeth, with at least 8 dental implants in the upper jaw and 6 in the lower jaw. The All-on-4® system requires only 4 implants in each jaw. Because dental implants are very expensive, the All-on-4® treatment concept significantly reduces the cost of your dental prosthesis. A further advantage: To ensure the correct anchoring of implants and dental prostheses, a thin jawbone must be augmented. However, since the All-on-4® treatment concept uses a special implantation method, patients whose jawbone would normally be deemed too thin or narrow can also be fitted with implants. All-on-4® is a safe treatment alternative without the need for bone augmentation. Additionally, with All-on-4®, patients are fitted with a temporary bridge directly during the operation which is worn during the healing processes. This means you don’t have to wait a long time before finally having your permanent teeth. In most cases, the entire treatment can be carried out on the same day – from tooth extraction to placement of the implants to fitting of the first permanent teeth.
