WHAT IS ALL ON 4 TREATMENT?
The All On 4 Dental Implant treatment is a full mouth reconstruction procedure for patients whose teeth are severely damaged and considered non restorable, or patients who have already lost all their teeth. Conventionally, these patients had no option but using removable dentures. With the advent of implant dentistry and the All On 4 technique, these patient can now benefit from teeth that become a permanent part of their mouth, allowing them to chew all kinds of food comfortably, and smile and talk with confidence. The All On 4 teeth feel, function, and look like natural teeth.
Since 1998 the All on 4 Dental implant treatment has been provided to patient who have lost most or all their teeth, or their remaining teeth are damaged extensively and cannot be restored. This treatment has evolved significantly during the past 25 years and is now accepted worldwide as the best treatment option for full mouth reconstruction. This treatment not only gives strong and solid function for chewing, but it is also superiorly esthetic. Patients who receive this treatment are able to talk, eat, and smile with confidence. The advantage of this treatment is that it beautifully restores teeth with only 4-6 implants on upper or lower jaw. In most cases only one surgery is done, during which all remaining terminal teeth are extracted, necessary bone grafting is done, and 4-6 dental implants are placed in each arch. Patients who undergo these surgeries generally heal smoothly and without much discomfort. They report mild post operative discomfort, and in many cases no pain at all. The immediate healing after surgery is about 1-2 weeks, but patients are generally able to return to work after 1-2 days.
Before the surgery is performed a set of temporary teeth are fabricated. These temporary teeth are fitted in the patient’s mouth immediately after surgery and help patient function during the healing time which is about 4 months. About 3 months after the surgery, the fabrication of permanent bridge is started, and it usually takes about one month to complete. The permanent teeth are called hybrid bridge and is made of zirconia. This material is highly esthetic and durable. The possibility of chipping, breaking, or wear under function for All On 4 Dental Implant zirconia hybrid bridge is nonexistence. The hybrid bridge is securely and permanently screwed to implants in each arch and once in place, it looks natural and beautiful. Patients can select their desirable tooth color, ranging from darker to very white or somewhere in the middle. It’s important to note that, unlike natural teeth, the All on 4 Dental Implant teeth never change color and patient don’t have to worry about their new teeth becoming discolored in time. Patients with All On 4 Dental Implant teeth can chew, talk, and smile with confidence and without the fear of teeth moving in their mouth. Our patients who undergo this treatment love their new teeth and confess that the result has been way beyond their expectations. They don’t hesitate to say how positively their life has changed after receiving the All On 4 Dental Implant treatment. Many of them say their All On 4 dental implant teeth are even more comfortable and way more beautiful than their natural teeth. In that sense the All On 4 Dental Implant treatment is considered reconstructive as well as highly cosmetic treatment. If you have been wearing bulky dentures that make eating, talking, and smiling cumbersome for you, or you have natural teeth that are damaged beyond repair.
