All on 4 dental implant
To understand what a All-on-4 dental implant is, you first need to know what an implant is. A dental implantis basically a small (usually titanium) screw that’s inserted into your jawbone in the space left by a missing tooth. Once the implant is placed in your mouth, your dentist will attach a fake tooth to the screw.
Now, multiply this idea by four and you get an All-On-4 dental implant. Instead of using an implant for every missing tooth, you can simply use four implants on top and four on the bottom as the main anchors. The All-on-4 treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graft less solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.
Rapid improvement in quality of life
A fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery quickly leads to improved patient satisfaction – with regards to function, esthetics, sense, speech and self-esteem.
Shorter treatment times
Tilting of the posterior implants avoids the need for time-consuming bone grafting procedures, while immediate loading shortens time-to-teeth.
The concept is the least costly in comparison with conventional implant treatment modalities of the edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous jaw.
- Full-arch rehabilitation with only four implants – Two straight implants and two implants tilted up to 45º
-Immediate Function (fixed provisional bridge) – For patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of implants
-Graft less procedure – In the majority of cases Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the implants, utilizing available bone but depending on doctors criteria.
All on 4 Procedure and materials used
The All-on-4 Technique allows patient to receive a Fixed Bridge (Non-Removable) on just 4 Dental Implants.
This Dental Implant Treatment is a two-stage process and requires 2 visits:
The first visit is for the surgical phase of the implants. If you need extractions, Bone Grafting, Dentures all this will be done on the first visit. Patient that currently wear dentures need to come for at least 7 days for the first trip, If you are getting extractions plan your trip for at least 9 days in Cancun.
For the second stage of the dental implants the patient would come back for the Fixed Non-Removable screw- retained restoration.
Most facilities hire an outside lab to fabricate a titanium bar, wrap this bar in acrylic with denture teeth attached, or hire an outside lab fabricate a Zirconia, this can take several months or years. At Cancun Dental Design in-house dental lab, these will either be a CAD/CAM Titanium Bar with High Impact Acrylic Teeth or a Zirconium Superstructure with Inserts From 10 – 14 Units designed and fabricated in specialized machines by our experienced CAD/CAM personnel.
