The All-on-4 treatment concept offers clinicians and their patients various clear benefits:
Stability even in minimum bone volume
By tilting the two posterior implants, longer implants can be used in minimum bone volume, increasing bone‐to‐implant contact and reducing the need for vertical bone augmentation. The tilted posterior implants can be anchored in better quality anterior bone, reducing cantilevers and thus improving support of the prosthesis.
Good clinical results
Biomechanical measurements show that tilted implants, when part of prosthetic support, do not have a negative effect on the load distribution. The tilting of implants has been used in clinical practice for over a decade and has shown good results.
With an All-on-4 treatment, patients benefit from an immediate implant-supported restoration, as a provisional prosthesis is screwed onto the implants right after surgery. Final solutions for All-on-4 treatments include both fixed prostheses, Implant Bridge Titanium with acrylic veneering, or individual crowns cemented to the bridge framework, and removable solutions, such as acrylic overdentures on an Implant Bar Overdenture.
Efficient treatment fl o w results in shorter treatment times and improved patient satisfaction.
