An all on 4 procedure, commonly known as all on four dental implants is a prosthodontic technique which aims to replace compromised teeth, decayed teeth or broken teeth from the upper or lower jaw. The all on 4 technique was developed by Paulo Malo and Nobel Biocare in the early 90’s and since then, this total dental rehabilitation procedure has gained a lot of popularity among patients as well as dentists.
All on 4 dental implants advantages include:
● The fixed prosthesis can be placed on the day of surgery
● Usually, no second trip required when the all on 4 system is used
● Lower cost compared to getting 12 or 14 dental implants
● Bone graft surgery is not necessary
● Natural looking teeth
● Minimal recovery time, compared to other procedures
● No dietary restrictions after the all on 4 dental implants and prosthesis are placed
● All on four implants are reliable and can potentially last a lifetime
The all on 4 procedure is recommended for patients with a lot of missing teeth on the maxilla or mandible. The procedure is also a good solution for patients suffering from bone loss which prevents the placement of traditional, vertical implants in the jaw.
The all on 4 dental implants technique is not recommended for the following categories of patients:
● Heavy smokers
● Patients suffering from bruxism
● Pregnant patients
● Patients with a suppressed immune system
● Patients who suffered a heart attack recently
● Patients with extreme jaw bone loss
● Patients who recently had radiation therapy in the jaw area
Patients will first need to have a set of dental X-rays done, in order to check for any potential problems related to bone loss in the area. A CBCT scan may also be used for this purpose. If there are any remaining teeth on the maxilla or mandible, they will have to be removed.
The all on 4 dental implants technique requires local anesthesia. Once the anesthesia kicks in, the dentist will create 4 incisions in the patient’s gum. The bone is then carefully exposed and the dental implants are placed into the jawbone. The implants are usually angled at 30 to 45 degrees in order to avoid any sensitive areas such as the sinus in the upper jaw or the mental nerve in the mandible. After the 4 implants are placed, the incisions are closed with sutures. A provisional or permanent prosthesis can be placed at this point and the recovery period can begin.
3 - 5 days
2 - 3 hours
Patients usually return to work in around 3-5 days after the all on 4 procedure. Patients will also be provided with a guide which needs to be followed for the next 3 months – this is the time it takes for the bone to properly heal. Solid food is forbidden for at least 3-4 weeks and patients will only be allowed to consume liquid foods. After a few weeks patients can consume softer foods. Patients can also experience a lot of swelling and discomfort during the first week of the recovery period.
The following risks and complications are associated with all on 4 dental implants:
● Nerve damage
● Osseointegration failure
● Damage to the sinus
● Loss of jaw bone
Patients can expect the following side effects after an all on 4 dental implants procedure:
● Considerable swelling
● Minimal bleeding
All on 4 reviews set the success rate at 94.8%, 10 years after the procedure has been performed.
After the all on 4 procedure, patients will be able to enjoy natural looking teeth with no dietary restrictions. Patients will need to maintain good oral hygiene practices in order to maintain the longevity of the implants and prosthesis.
