Single or Multiple Missing Teeth Replacement with Implant(s)

All-on-4 and All-on-6 Dental Implants

All-on-4 / All-on-6 – a procedure where 4-to-6 dental implants, depending on bone availability (i.e. volume, density, etc.) are placed in the upper or lower jaw bone to serve as support for a permanently fixed (non-removable) ceramic bridge made of 10-14 custom-made ceramic crowns, depending on individual oral and bone conditions in the upper and lower jaw (i.e. All-on-4 / All-on-6 implant-supported fixed bridge).

 

Why All-on -4?

Reasons why  All-on-4 technique has gained popularity are:

  • The high volume of the edentulous and patients with a terminal dentition who can be treated with the technique.
  • How are All-on-4 implants different to normal dental implants?

All-on-4 dental implants are unlike traditional implants because 4 implants are used to sustain a whole arch, when usually between 6 and 10 implants are needed to maintain an arch. All -on-4 dental implants are able to sustain an arch because of the angles the implants are positioned at, with the back implants positioned at a 45 degree angle rather than a 90 degree angle, which helps to lock the implants together . As only 4 implants are needed the procedure is quicker and less invasive.

Implant-Retained Overdenture

Implant-supported bar-retained or ball/locator attached overdenture – a procedure where 2-to-4 dental implants, depending on bone availability, are placed in the upper or/and lower jawbone to serve as support for an overdenture, which clicks/snaps onto a titanium frame, called a “dolder bar” or onto ball/locator attachments. The overdenture is made of a flexible acrylic base imitating gums, and ceramic or acrylic teeth embedded in the denture, which is retained in place by the frame/bar or ball/locator implant attachments, depending on individual oral and bone conditions in the upper and lower jaw.

All-on-4® technique types of bars:

The all-on-4® technique uses two types of bars for the prosthetic part recommended by the doctor, which the patient can choose according to their budget.
