Fixed prosthesis

We present a graphic with All on 4 permanent prosthesis

The loss of all teeth carries serious consequences, which many of us might not be aware or heard of. Except our appearance that changes, as well as our lifestyle and well being, let's not forget about what happens in and around our mouth, more specifically within our jaw and mandible area. What we mean here is a degradation of bone tissue, which without some suitable stimulation simply starts to disappear. In a healthy person's mouth the roots of teeth provide essential functional and physiological stimulation, but if there are no teeth, the stimulation is missing, which in turn results in an atrophy of a bone tissue. To prevent this process, we have to take care of filling in missing teeth as soon as possible after we lose them.

All on 4Ⓒ is an alternative to a usual implantation. It allows an implantation even in patients with a considerable bone tissue atrophy and additionally it helps rebuild a full arch of teeth in only a couple of hours!

This method was developed in Portugal in late 90's by a dr Paulo Malo and his team.
With the ability to implant prosthesis even in patients with severe bone loss, we avoid painful, long and extremely expensive surgery of bone implant (which is usually performed fusing chin or hip bones).

How is it possible, that All on 4Ⓒ method can be apply on patients even with severe bone atrophy?

The implants that are used in All on 4Ⓒ method are exactly the same as the ones used for all other dental methods, the only thing that differs is a position of their assembly. Two of them are assembled at right angle, axially, and the rest 2 are 30-45 degrees deflected from the straight line.

How does this process of implantation look like that?

The ability to implant 2 implants at an angle allows the assembly of them in the place chosen by the surgeon, it means where the bone tissue is of 'the best' quality. That is why, even in a severe bone tissue atrophy, the surgeon is able to find a spot, where the implants will have the best conditions and will fix them exactly there.

In most cases (around 90% of patients), there is a chance of completing the surgery within 72hrs of its commencement, so from the assembly of the fixed prosthesis on implants (Toronto Bridge), which means that within maximum of 3 days a edentulous patient is equipped with new full 'third' set of permanent teeth!
Only in minority of the cases (10%), in patients in whom the bone tissue atrophy is really considerable, the assembly of the fixed prosthesis needs to be postponed in time for around 1-3 months, meaning since osseointegration process is completed. Obviously during this time, the patient wears a temporary prosthesis.

What are the advantages of All on 4Ⓒ

  • Immediate rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible and maxilla
  • Decreases the need for a bone graft (money and time saving)
  • Shorter installation times than other implants
  • Brand new fixed set of teeth only within 72 hrs since the commencement of the surgery
  • The solution guarantees naturally looking teeth, which in 100% will take over the function of the natural teeth
  • Practically zero pain feeling and of course reduced stress associated with the surgery (dental anesthesia + anaesthetic sedation)

Contraindications for using All on 4Ⓒ

The only patients that this treatment cannot be absolutely used on are patients who are under chemo or radiotherapy.
Other serious illnesses such as HIV, HCV, osteoporosis, diabetes don't disqualify patients from undergoing the treatment. However, the final decision belongs to the surgeon.

After the consultation with the patient, the implantologist makes a decision regarding the surgery (it will certainly be necessary to present the full list of medications taken by the patient).
