All-on-4 Treatment

All-on-4 Treatment located in Murray Hill, New York, NY

Technique

The All-on-4® technique is an advanced dental procedure developed to provide a comprehensive and efficient solution for patients who require full-arch teeth replacement. This innovative approach utilizes four strategically placed dental implants to support a fixed prosthesis, offering improved stability, function, and aesthetics compared to traditional removable dentures.

All-on-4® Treatment Concept

ALL ON FOUR

1. Purpose and Concept

The primary goal of the All-on-4® technique is to restore a complete set of teeth using a minimal number of dental implants. By strategically placing four implants in areas of the jawbone with the highest bone density, this method maximizes support for the prosthetic while minimizing the need for bone grafting in many cases.

2. Implant Placement Strategy

During the All-on-4® procedure, two implants are positioned vertically in the anterior (front) region of the jaw, while two implants are tilted posteriorly to avoid anatomical structures and maximize implant-to-bone contact. This strategic placement allows for immediate loading of the implants in many cases, reducing overall treatment time.

3. Advantages of All-on-4

The All-on-4® technique offers several advantages, including shorter treatment duration, enhanced stability of the prosthetic, improved chewing efficiency, and restored facial aesthetics. Patients experience a significant improvement in quality of life with a fixed, natural-looking set of teeth.

4. Patient Evaluation and Treatment Planning

Before undergoing the All-on-4® procedure, patients undergo a comprehensive evaluation to assess oral health, bone density, and overall suitability for implant placement. Advanced imaging techniques such as CBCT scans aid in precise treatment planning to ensure optimal outcomes.

5. Prosthetic Design and Rehabilitation

Following implant placement and integration with the jawbone, a custom-designed full-arch prosthesis is fabricated to fit securely into the implants. The prosthetic is meticulously crafted to resemble natural teeth in appearance and function, allowing patients to enjoy restored oral function and aesthetics.
