WHAT IS ALL ON FOUR?
The All on 4 technique is rapid and effective method so as to eliminate the conditions require advanced surgery due to insufficiency of bone, bone joint and sinus lifting in patients who have no teeth or are likely to remain toothless.
‘All on 4’ treatment is the technique in which fixed full jaw prosthetic restoration is performed on 4-6 implants in the same day by surgery. The difference between standard implants and ‘All on four’ implants is their positioning within mouth. Normally 8 or 10 implants can be located in a jaw which is absence of teeth, but 4 implants are sufficient for this treatment by All on 4 technique.

Depending on the brand of the implant used in this process, it takes between 4 and 12 weeks.
After the stitches are removed, impressions are taken and temporary denture is made in order to that the patient can continue his daily life comfortably. (Denture is made in case of All-on-4 treatment)
The time required for the implants to completely fuse with the jawbone is 3 months for the lower jaw and 6 months for the upper jaw, but this period may vary depending on the patient’s bone structure and healing process.
