The All-on-4 dental implant technique can be explained as a treatment concept based on the prosthesis fixation procedure for patients with extensive bone loss. The prosthesis is fixed with 4 or 6 implants within the scope of this treatment, which provides successful results in patients who cannot use prostheses due to bone loss. Thus, patients can use their dentures without any problems. It does not cause any problems in functions such as chewing, biting or speaking. Therefore, it is a replacement tooth treatment that is preferred by more and more people day by day.
Before the patient is treated with the all-on-four treatment, he or she must be examined in the clinic. Some patients may also need tooth extraction. After tooth extraction, the stage of placing the implants begins. Before starting the treatment, dentures should be prepared in accordance with the measurements taken from the patient. After the implant application, temporary dental prostheses are placed and fixed. Thus, the patient starts to use dentures on the same day. After a while, permanent prostheses to be used by the patient are placed. The main purpose of the All on 4 dental implant is to protect and improve the patient's quality of life. Because oral health is very important for a high quality of life.
The implants used in this treatment are the apparatus used in the classical dental implant procedure and made of titanium. However, one important point should be noted. In order to compensate for tooth loss in a jaw with no teeth, 8 or 10 implants must be used. However, 4 implants are usually sufficient in this treatment, known as 'all on 4'. In rare cases, 6 implants may be required.
Usually, 2 implants are placed in the anterior part of the bone where the bone is of ideal thickness, and 2 implants are placed in the back of the jawbone. It is a very comfortable treatment option for patients. Procedures such as implant placement are performed under anesthesia. Thus, the patient does not feel pain
First of all, this treatment option is applied to patients who have lost all their teeth. In addition, dentures can be performed with this technique when most of the teeth have been lost and the remaining teeth must also be extracted.
We recommend this treatment especially for patients with excessive bone loss in the back of the lower and upper jaw. It is very important that patients start using dentures on the same day. In this way, speech and feeding problems can be prevented, and patients with bone loss can also benefit from denture application with peace of mind.
