The all-on-four technique represents the future of implant surgery with which it’s possible to replace all the missing teeth with just 4 implants.
It’s used to treat patients who have already lost or are about to lose all of their natural upper or lower teeth and, at the same time, have a minimal bone structure in the jaw.
What is All on 4?
The innovative All on four technique makes traditional removable prostheses obsolete. Compared to a conventional prosthesis, the palate is free with the All on-4 system.
Wearing a fixed prosthesis on All on 4 is more comfortable to wear than a removable prosthesis since removable dentures can shift during chewing and make surrounding oral tissue sore.
Its successful implementation requires appropriate training.

Implants are placed in the front part of the jaw, where bone quality and quantity allow their placement and stability.
By integrating only 4 implants, satisfactory static conditions are achieved for the complete jaw rehabilitation, as shown in numerous scientific studies that examined the durability of this method.
After the interposition of 4 dental implants, the patient is given a temporary prosthesis, and after the necessary period of implant osseointegration, patients are given a final restructuration.
All on 4 dental procedures shorten the treatment time compared to conventional implant placement methods and reduce the overall time of treatment.
