The All-on-4® Treatment Concept

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a dental implant solution strategically designed for toothless jaws.

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a dental implant solution strategically designed for toothless jaws. If you are unhappy with your dentures or no longer want to live without teeth, it might be the right solution for you.

With only four dental implants, the All-on-4® treatment concept can restore a complete jaw of missing teeth.

This technique offers you several advantages:

  • Shorter treatment time, lower costs

  • The low number of implants needed for the All-on-4® treatment concept considerably reduces treatment time and often makes this solution more cost-effective than comparable treatment alternatives.

  • A very elaborate way of placing implants at the back of the mouth also makes it a treatment option for patients whose jaw bone is severely reduced after years without teeth.

  • Fixed teeth from day one.

  • Depending on your individual dental situation, your dentist can connect your implants to a temporary bridge on the day of surgery. This means you can leave the dental office with a full set of teeth and return to leading a normal life. After a certain healing time, your dentist will exchange your temporary bridge with the final bridge created by a dental laboratory.

What to Expect

  • Once your dentist lets you know you are a candidate for the All-on-4® procedure, the process will begin to prepare you for your surgery and delivery of your temporary prosthesis at the time of surgery.

  • The first appointment after your initial dental exam will be for impressions. This will allow the lab to make your temporary denture which will be delivered at the time of surgery.

  • This prosthesis will be screwed into your implants and temporary abutments to give you a stable temporary denture. In some rare cases, patients will not be able to receive a fixed temporary denture, and it will have to be removable during the healing process.

  • The healing process will take 4 to 12 months while your implants integrate into your jaw bone. Once the implants are ready for their final screwed in the prosthesis, the dentist will remove the temporary denture and take more impressions to make your final prosthesis.  There will be multiple appointments to make sure the bite, fit, and shade are correct.
