All-on-4® Treatment Concept
Invasive treatment options were normally all that was available to dental patients. The process was made for the highest in patient satisfaction. This is due to the fact that previous concepts and methods did not work out well for the patient, caused a decent amount of pain and consisted of multiple visits to the dental office, which proved to be costly.
There are currently numerous companies offering this implant technology and which you use depends on your unique factors and the choice of the dentist performing the surgery and treatment plan for you. Evolving over time, it is one of the most loved and used methods for permanent dentures.
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept
The All-on-4® treatment concept uses the newest technology and advances in the dental market to provide patient satisfaction and to cut down on the costs and process it would normally take. This concept is four implants that are placed in the arch of the mouth to hold the implants that they normally wear in place. This not only improves the appearance of the patient’s smile, but it gives them more confidence since the implants are able to stay in place.
The safety for each individual patient is also improved, since the process is much less invasive than some of the other processes that would normally be taken. With the right planning process, each and every implant that is put inside the mouth is expertly chosen and placed. There is no guessing involved. With the latest in 3D technology, this can easily be done so that the patient is able to get a more confident smile without the guess-work that they’d come to expect.
The chances of rejection inside the patient’s mouths were also much lower than other implants that are used. This allows the patient to go into the office, expect better results and have all of their teeth implanted at the same time, instead of having to get one or two implants installed into the gums. With just four holes and screws placed into the gums, the entire length of dentures is then attached. This can be done for both the top and the bottom of the teeth.
The concept was made to ensure that patient satisfaction, quality of life and pain management were kept to a minimum; while also being able to provide a beautiful smile overall. By using this concept, the patients have been able to smile better, feel better and get the results they were hoping for. With a 99.6% success rate, this is the implant and denture plan so many are now choosing.

Additional Notes to Consider
Please keep in mind that each and every patient is different. There may be additional procedures or processes that need to be performed, depending on each individual patient to have the implants installed correctly. This, however, depends on the dentures, implants and the patient’s gums and medical records. Speaking with the dentist regarding what the process or treatment plan is can provide you with more specific information regarding your own specific plan.
Other Treatment Options
• Bar Attachment Denture :The bar attachment denture allows us to replace an arch full of missing teeth with a dental bridge supported by a bar system and four dental implants.
• Ball Implant Retained Overdenture: This option allows the denture to be snapped on and off the implants
Though the success rate is high, there are many other considerations to be made in the process. These all have to do with your background medical history, your current gum condition and other factors. The implants can fail with time, but in order to provide the best success, it is essential that you speak with a dentist that can evaluate your unique situation regarding the implants.
