All-on-4 treatment concept provides edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous patients with a fixed fuul arcs prostheses on 4 implants on the day of surgery.
Advantages of this concept include :
- Full-arch rehabilitation with only four implants
Two straight anterior implants and two implants tilted up to 45º in the posterior
- Immediate Function (fixed provisional bridge)
For patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of implants
- Graftless procedure
Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants, utilizing available bone
Why is this concept becoming so popular?
The full-arch prostheses delivered immediately after implantation quickly leads to improved patient satisfaction in regards to function, esthetics,sense, speech and self-esteem, and since treatment complexity is reduced the overall treatment time is also reduced. This concept is also the least costly in comparison with conventional implant treatment modalities of the edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous jaw.
