The “All on 4” or “Teeth in a Day” is an exciting treatment procedure that takes advantage of the benefits of tilting posterior implants. The protocol utilizes a simple guide for the predictable and optimal positioning of four implants (six implants, if necessary, in the maxilla). This facilitates optimal prosthetic support for a high-pressure modeled acrylic bridge that can be fabricated and functioning within just a few hours after surgery.
All-on-4 is an innovative solution for those patients suffering from loose dentures or failing teeth who wish to achieve a brand-new smile with a fixed bridge on dental implants. All four work by placing two of the four implants at such an angle that the implants support the bridge at the front of the mouth, where the jaw bone is denser and stronger.
Besides providing a more secure and stable fit for denture wearers, All-on-4 implants also help to protect your dental health and offer better longevity.
Traditional dentures are removable and rely on suction to your jawbone to stay in place. This puts pressure on your jawbone, which causes it to deteriorate over time, which is one reason that traditional dentures have to be adjusted and relined from time to time.
All-on-4 dentures use implants to stimulate your bone, which promotes growth and regeneration and allows the implants to support your denture for many years or even a lifetime.
