The All-on-4™ solution is an attractive option for patients who may have a very limited amount of bone in the jaw. It is an alternative dental implant solution that maximizes available bone, often without the need for a bone graft. Statistics show that the All-on-4™ technique has a 98.5 percent success rate after four years and continues to be an attractive solution for patients with missing teeth.
Implant Supported Denture Techniques
The All-on-4™ and All-on-6™ techniques use only a few dental implants, either four or six per arch, to create a stable foundation for a set of dentures. The area is numbed to reduce patient discomfort and the dental implants are placed in the areas with the highest bone volume. After placement, a new or existing set of dentures can be attached to the implants as a set of temporary teeth. Once the implants have fully integrated with the jaw bone, which typically requires three to six months, the final set of teeth can be anchored in place.
