1 – ALL-ON-FOUR dental implants, what are they?
The ALL-ON-FOUR (Immediate Load) treatment concept is a technique that provides patients with a fixed prosthesis with a complete arch, upper or lower, on the day of surgery, restoring the patient’s function and aesthetics by placing four implants, the slightly inclined sides and fixed temporary prostheses are attached to them during the healing period, which is around three months. It is currently considered a new standard in fixed oral rehabilitation and practiced with extremely high success rates.
2. Advantages of ALL-ON-4 fixed prosthesis
The application of prostheses with immediate fixed teeth on implants is highly recommended by those who have already tried it. In fact, in addition to being a less unpleasant and faster alternative, this solution also guarantees the comfort of having immediate fixed teeth with which you can chew and smile.
Dental implants in the all-on-four protocol simplify the entire oral rehabilitation process and are especially indicated in complex cases considered impossible.
Dental implants are placed where the amount of bone is greater, and it is not necessary, in most cases, to resort to graft surgeries such as breast elevation that make the treatment more expensive and time-consuming. The technique can also be performed on people with heart disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
Tooth-to-tooth rehabilitation is more expensive, and the surgery time is much longer, as well as the patient’s recovery time.
Compared to dentures, ALL-ON-4 is fixed and does not cause bone loss over time, causing maladjustments that cause oscillation and difficulty in chewing food. ALL-ON-4 allows you to chew naturally, without pain, discomfort, or inflammation, without having to be removed for hygiene, after meals, or during the night.
Patients treated with this protocol acquire a younger appearance because the face is full and harmonious; the person’s image is favored.
More than a dental treatment, this is a transformative experience, as this type of implant allows great improvement in the quality of life, as it speeds up the process of recovering function, aesthetics, speech, senses, and self-esteem.
The ALL-ON-4 treatment is likely to last a lifetime.
3 – Who can choose the treatment?
Anyone who is 18+ years of age can undergo fixed treatment.
4 – Is the intervention painful?
Performed with conventional local anesthesia, as in other dental treatments, the intervention is simple, painless, and without complications. You may, in the first days, experience some discomfort associated with the technique. Gradually, everything returns to its normal state.
5 – Risks and contraindications
As long as an experienced dentist performs the protocol, the risks are non-existent.
6 – ALL-ON-4 success rate
Implants can last for decades, years, or even a lifetime, depending on hygiene habits, cleaning care, periodic checks and/or absence of systemic diseases or cancer problems.
