All on 4 Dental implants contains 4 implants placed in a completely teeth-less jaw, providing secure and optimal support for a fixed bridge/denture. The posterior two implants are specially designed and angulated to achieve, the most Comprehensive, Successful, Safe, Simpler, Graft-less, Minimum-Number-Implant-Solution for completely missing teeth.
Often, tooth loss is accompanied by loss of the jaw bone which poses the problem of reconstruction of the jaw bone. For the implantation to be successful, it is necessary to transplant bone from other parts of the body. It requires an additional surgery and many patients can not do the transplant of bone for general health reasons also (diabetes and others).
The All-on-4 Dental Implants solution, will address these drawbacks because it consists in establishing a fully customized denture (bridge) based only on four titanium implants. These implants act as “pillars” to the bridge that supports the prosthetic teeth. The invented process allows taking advantage of existing bone, even if scarce, avoiding having to use bone grafts.
The posterior implants are substantially angled at approximately 45 degrees to avoid compromising the sinus cavity in the upper jaw and the nerve canal in the lower jaw.
The All-on-4 dental implants solution owes its name to the very nature of the method, which consists of applying a dental prosthesis with at least twelve teeth (bridge) fixed in the jaw, based only on four titanium implants.
The specific all on 4 dental implants or pillars used are protected by international patenting.
Traditional dental implant treatments require the placement of 6-8 or more implants per arch. And for those who choose not to do anything about their missing teeth, failing teeth or loose dentures, the cost is much higher; in pain, embarrassment, cleaning and adhesive products, and overall health. When you calculate the costs, in dollars and cents or in Rupees, healing time, and personal and emotional well being, the All-on-4 (AO4) dental implant procedure ranks superior. It saves money. It saves time. It reduces anxiety. It reduces healing time. And it alleviates the emotional stress brought upon by not liking how you look or feel. In most cases, with the All-on-4 procedure you can be eating and drinking things you never could before. And you’ll look good doing it!
The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is recommended for people with failing teeth, no teeth, those currently wearing dentures, and those in need of full upper and/or lower restorations. The procedure utilizes as few as four implants (remember, traditional procedures require 6-8 or more) and a full set of new implant-supported replacement teeth per arch, which you usually get in just one clinical appointment. This saves time and money, reduces healing time, and gives you a whole lot to smile about.
Unlike other dental implant approaches, the All-on-4 dental implant procedure from Advanced Dental & Medical Care can eliminate the need for bone grafting, sinus augmentation or other ancillary procedures. By eliminating bone grafts and offering fewer implants, the procedure is quicker, costs are lower, and the healing time is greatly reduced. All-on-4 is a minimally invasive procedure that will give you fully functional, real-looking replacement teeth.

Initial Examination: The first step is an oral examination to discuss treatment options and to determine the best solution that suits your individual needs. Initial impressions may also be taken to allow for fabrication of study models.
Diagnostic: X-rays and Cone Beam CT 3-D scans are taken to determine final position of the implants. The X-rays allow for the careful evaluation of the bone quality and quantity for dental implant placement. Pre-treatment photographs and cast models are also prepared.
Virtual Surgical treatment planning is undertaken using specialized implant treatment planning software allowing the surgeon to carefully evaluate the jaw bone and position the dental implants prior to surgery.
Work-up: Information from your clinical examination and x-rays is used to plan the optimal position of the final teeth for aesthetics, function and speech. A software is used to plan your implant surgery and allows for very accurate implant placement and thus reducing risk.
The software allows us to plan your implant surgery in a virtual world before actually undertaking surgery. A special customized guide is also produced at this stage to be used during your surgery to ensure accurate implant placement.
Implant Placement – Day 1
The jaw is prepared to receive the implants and the implants are strategically placed according to the surgical guide. Impressions are taken of the implants.
The implant surgery can be undertaken with local anaestheitc alone or with sedation (oral or intravenous). This will help you to relax and make you feels as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
Tooth Trial – Day 2
A trial of your teeth in your mouth within 24-48 hrs following surgery. Adjustments of tooth position and colour can be made at this stage before final finishing of the teeth.
New Teeth – Day 3
Your completed new fully fixed replacement teeth are inserted on day 3 in most cases.
Just brush and floss regularly, and visit your Advanced Dental & Medical Care for regular cleanings. Simply treat them like regular, natural teeth.
