WHAT IS THE ALL-ON-4 TREATMENT?
Interest Free Payment Plans Available
All-on-4 is a revolutionary new dental procedure that allows you to get a completely new and permanent set of prosthetic teeth within a span of a few days. Its name comes from the fact that it only requires the placement of 4 titanium implants in each jaw to support a new set of teeth
Compared to conventional total oral rehabilitation methods, All-on-4 takes less time, is less invasive, and is less painful overall for patients, with the same end result. Since All-on-4 is a permanent replacement it will look, feel and chew just like or even better than your real teeth. It will give you back a perfect smile and allow you to talk, bite and chew just like you did with your natural teeth.
How Does The All-On-4-Concept Work?
All-on-4 was developed and perfected by Dr. Paulo Malo and his team of dentists and oral surgeons at the Malo Dental over a decade ago. It is a full arch treatment that replaces all the teeth in the upper and/or lower dental arches with a fixed bridge that is supported by 4 titanium implants.
In most cases, people only start to lose their teeth when the underlying jaw bone and connective tissue gets eaten away by bacteria. When too much bone loss has occurred, there won’t be any place available underneath the missing teeth to surgically insert a dental implant.
In such situations, patients will first have to go through a bone grafting procedure to replace the lost bone. A bone graft will take a couple of months to heal completely, and only then will you be able to get fitted with your replacement teeth.
With All-on-4, bone grafts are no longer necessary. It works around the bone loss problem by tilting the two posterior implants up to 45 degrees so that it can be properly supported by denser bones in the other parts of jaw or even the cheek bone. The remaining two anterior implants are inserted straight similar to a normal dental implant.
This dental implant technique has proven to be very effective for tens of thousands of patients in different parts of the world. Overall, the procedure is less invasive compared to other more conventional methods, and can even be performed using a local anaesthetic. It also can be completed within a span of a few days, which dramatically reduces the wait time for a new set of teeth.
Who needs the All-on-4 procedure
All-on-4 is the best tooth replacement solution for people who are not considered to be good candidates for regular dental implants. This can happen when there isn’t enough jaw bone left to support an implant, or if you are suffering from a medical condition that will make surgically inserting an implant impossible.
All-on-4 is also a great solution for people who can’t wait several months up to a year to get a new set of teeth. Missing several teeth for long periods can have adverse effects on your quality of life, speech, appearance and overall health, among many other things.
All-on-4 is also ideal for anyone looking for a long-term solution for their dental problems. It is more effective and more convenient than having to deal with dentures for the rest of your life.
How Can All-On 4 Restore My Smile?
As soon as the All-on-4 titanium implants are surgically inserted into your jaw, you can immediately get a new set of replacement teeth. With the All-on-4 treatment you will get a fixed bridge created using the latest CAD/CAM technology to ensure a perfect fit and excellent performance that will be similar or even better than your natural teeth. Your new set of teeth will also be perfectly aligned giving you a great looking smile. All-on-4 is an excellent option whether you’re missing only a few teeth or all of your teeth.
What To Expect From The All-On-4-Procedure?
Placing a dental implant is a quick, minimally invasive procedure. Dr Sehmi will do a careful initial evaluation to determinate the best treatment plan for your dental condition. The initial evaluation consists in a comprehensive examination and diagnostic imaging. With the help of a specific computer software program is created a 3 dimensional image of your jaw. “Virtual implants” are placed in the 3D image to ensure accuracy at the time of your surgery. To facilitate the procedure and ensure quality, the fixed bridge is manufactured before the surgery.
What makes All-on-4 such a revolutionary procedure?
All-on-4 is a fairly new procedure developed and perfected over a decade ago by Dr. Paul Malo and his team of dentists and oral surgeons. Compared to conventional dental treatments that achieve the same result, All-on-4 takes less time, is less invasive and less painful for patients. All-on-4 also allows patients who aren’t considered good candidates for conventional dental implants to get a new set of teeth in the shortest time possible.
What are the different aspects of All-on-4?
All-on-4 gets its name from the four titanium implants that are surgically inserted into the upper and/or lower jaw to support a fixed bridge. It is a full arch replacement that allows patients to get a whole new set of upper and/or lower teeth, which can greatly improve their quality of life and give them back a perfect smile
The titanium dental implants used in the All-on-4 treatment were chosen not only because they are strong enough to last an entire lifetime, but also due to its versatility as far as surgical placement is concerned. The key to All-on-4 is the angle at which the two posterior implants are inserted into the jaw. By tilting it up to 45 degrees the implant can be place in areas where there is more bone density to support the bridge. Titanium implants will also eventually become part of the jaw as new bone growth directly attaches to its surface through a process called osseointegration, which translates to increased mechanical strength and stability.
The ceramic material used for the bridge is extremely strong and can easily match the look of natural teeth. We also use advanced CAD/CAM technology to model the ceramic bridge to extremely precise measurements.
What are the advantages of the All-on-4 treatment?
Since All-on-4 uses only 4 implants to support the bridge, it is less invasive than conventional dental implants which require more implants to be surgically inserted in the jaw.
When tooth loss occurs due to decay it usually means that the underlying bone and connective tissue supporting the tooth has also been eaten away by bacteria. Bone loss can also occur when teeth that are knocked loose due to external forces and are left untreated.
In most cases, patients with missing teeth will also have suffered enough bone loss in the jaw to make placing traditional dental implants impossible. To solve this, a separate procedure called a bone graft is required. For this procedure, bone tissue from another area or source is placed in the area where bone loss has occurred so that new bone tissue can grow around it. Only when the new bone has formed after several months can a dental implant be placed.
The main advantage of All-on-4, is that it can be performed on patients who have severe bone loss in the jaw without having to undergo a bone graft. With All-on-4, the two posterior implants are placed at an angle in areas of the jaw where there is more bone mass to properly support the bridge. This means you can get your implants and bridge fitted within the span of only a few days, versus several months or up to a year with conventional dental implants.
How can one benefit from All-on-4?
All-on-4 allows you to get a new set of upper and lower teeth in the shortest time possible. It is a permanent replacement that can last you an entire lifetime. It is much more convenient that using dentures which requires a lot of daily care and maintenance.
Getting a whole new set of teeth via the All-on-4 procedure will make a huge improvement in your quality of life, and give you a perfect looking smile. You’ll also be able to bite, chew and speak as well as you did with your natural teeth. It is also a great way to give your self-esteem and confidence a much needed boost.
