Title: Is All-on-4 Dental Implants Right for You

Is All-on-4 Dental Implants Right for You? Key
Aspects to Understand
  • There is a lot of discussion about the benefits
    and downsides of the All-on-4 dental
    techniques. To grasp the effects of this
    procedure, you first need to have accurate
    information. All-on- 4 is a term that refers to
    the dental procedure where all your teeth get
    support from four implants. It is a surgical
    technique based on prosthodontics procedure. The
    All-on-6 is also a prosthodontics technique,
    which means all teeth are receiving support from
    six implants.
  • The procedures are a bit more complicated than
    they sound in the definitions above. Even so,
    many tout them as the best for patients with
    compromised, badly broken down, or decayed teeth.
    One of the brainchildren behind the All-on-4
    procedure is the Portuguese Dr, Paulo Malo, who
    used the technique to treat a patient
    satisfactorily in 1988.

What is the Concept of All-on-4 Implants?
  • Looking at the number of people who have
    undertaken the procedure, it is accurate to say
    that the All-on-4 concept is perfect for
    full-arch treatments with tilted implants. The
    approach uses a graftless and a cost-efficient
  • Here is a detailed explanation of the
    characteristics of this technique
  • Full arch rehabilitation using four implants
    Uses two straight implants and two anterior
    implants tilted at a 45-degree angle in your
    posterior to anchor your set of teeth.
  • Graftless Procedure Enables dentists to skip
    bone grafting all together. It utilizes the bone
    available by tilting your posterior implants.
  • Immediate Function Uses a fixed provisional
    bridge to load implants for patients who meet the
    criteria, immediately.

  • Tilting the two posterior implants ensures
    enhancement of the bone-to-implant contact.
    Thats how this procedure uses minimum bone
    volume to provide optimized bone support. More
    importantly, the titling improves anchorage with
    quality anterior bone, while the implant design
    enables bio-cortical anchorage around the
    cortical bone in the nasal fossa and the sinus
  • The All-on-4 technique rehabilitates your full
    set of teeth. Since the 1990s, many clinicians in
    the countries of Sweden, Portugal, South America,
    and the US have helped to advance this procedure
    by starting from angulation of back implants.
    Paul Maulo is a Portuguese dentist, and one of
    the people who funded the techniques studies,
    later using it to treat a patient. The benefits
    of All-in-4 include

  • Full-arch restoration
  • Shorter installation times when compared to
    conventional implants
  • Prevents further bone loss
  • Eliminates the need for bone grafting during a
  • The All-on-6 procedure has similar advantages. It
    also has a shorter treatment time, you will not
    need bone grafting, and it lasts, plus it helps
    you achieve the most beautiful set of teeth. Both
    of these procedures have astonishingly high
    success rates.

The Surgical Procedure (All-on-4)
  • Most people feel scared when getting first-time
    implants. It is not a surprise because
    conventional implants have for a long time been
    infamous due to the pain and lengthy timelines
    associated with them. Still, the All-on-4 is a
    whole other different technique. Heres the whole
    procedure you will undergo at the dentists
  • Step one It is about comfortability before the
    surgical operation. A dentist will make sure that
    you are at ease so that they can administer
    general or local anesthesia.
  • Step two At this stage, the dentist prepares
    your mouth and removes any failing teeth. He/ she
    also remove any infected or diseased tissue from
    your gums or organs.

  • Step three Here, the implementation process
    begins. The dentist places titanium screws in
    your jawbone. He or she then inserts the
    implants, fastening them in place using the
    screws. Usually, two implants face towards your
    mouths back, while the other two face the front.
    They help the anchor to bare the denture force
  • The last step After successful placing of the
    implants, your dentist thoroughly sutures all
    incisions and cleans the surgical sites. He or
    she then moves you to a recovery room so you
    relax and wake up (from the anesthesia).

What Are Computer Guided All-on-4 Implants?
  • Dentists use computer software and high tech
    equipment for placement of these implants. The
    process involves utilizing a scanner to perform
    scans with a diagnostic/ surgical guide that has
    radiopaque teeth. The information retrieved from
    the scanner helps the lab technicians and dentist
    to locate virtual implant components within the
    bone and prosthesis.
  • This technology is also used to figure out the
    best area to place locking pins for stabilizing
    the archs guide during surgery. The modern
    techniques and high precision equipment used for
    computer-guided All-on-4 implants ensure that
    dentists achieve the best possible results.
    Computer-guided implant procedures take into
    account the therapeutic information and patient

  • A dentist uses a radiological guide derived from
    radiological data to create 3D models to assess
    the quantity and quality of the available bone.
    According to many studies, this technique is
    better than all others. Here are the benefits of
    going for the computer-guided All-on- 4 implants
  • Doctors are able to administer smaller, cleaner,
    and precise incisions, which enables the patient
    to heal faster.
  • The risk of complications is lower when compared
    to other methods.
  • The software help dentist to make exact
    implantations and determine accurate treatment
    plans by using cone beam CT scans.
  • The technology also enables more patients to get
    treatment. Before the use of software, All-on 4
    dental implants were for only those without
    dental structure or bone volume issues.

Average Recovery Time after the All-on-4
  • Recovery from traditional dentures has always
    taken about 3-8 months. With the All-on- 4, you
    will heal faster when compared to conventional
    methods. The stability provided by the implants
    fused to your bone ensures that recovery starts
    from day 1.
  • Here is a breakdown of the healing process from
    the moment your dentist finishes the surgery
  • A few hours later After the All-on-4 procedure,
    a dentist places gauze packs over the surgical
    areas. These packs stay on until you stop
    bleeding, which should take about one hour after
    surgery. Once the dentist confirms you have no
    excessive bleeding, the removal of the gauze
    packs occurs. your mouth as clean as possible,

  • When you arrive at home You should take care not
    to harm the tender areas. Avoid touching or
    rinsing the surgical wounds. For brushing your
    teeth, use a very gentle toothbrush. You should
    not smoke right after surgery to ensure the
    surgical spots heal right. Use a medicated rinse
    to keep your mouth as clean as possible, always.
  • The next day After you wake up, check to see if
    there is any bleeding in your mouth. After
    confirming you are not bleeding, use salt water
    to rinse your aperture. Repeat that procedure 2-3
    times during the day.
  • The following days It is vital that you rest
    well for a sufficient period after the dental
    procedure. Avoid lifting heavy objects, bending
    over unnecessarily, or any other strenuous
    activity. It is to prevent swelling or bleeding.
    More importantly, train yourself to stand slowly
    when you sit for a while. Standing quickly leads
    to lightheadedness.
  • The average recovery time after the All-on- 4
    processes should be at least 4-6 months. Dont
    forget to eat soft foods and rest well. It will
    quicken your healing process.

The Cost Involved in Administering Care after
  • The cost of recovery depends on how well you care
    for your wounds. Other than the initial cost of
    surgery, you do not incur a lot of expenses after
    the procedure. You will need to invest in a
    softer toothbrush, a non-abrasive toothpaste, and
  • If you can, wash your mouth using good old baking
    soda diluted in a little water. It is quite soft
    on a microscopic level despite having a gritty
    feeling to it. Baking soda also has the least
    abrasive components. Your doctor will also
    recommend a kit and other products plus
    medication to help with recovery.
  • Thus, the after-care cost should not be in excess
    of 600. There are some cases where the
    recovery expense shoots up as a result of a
    complication or two. It is why you cannot
    overemphasize sufficient care after the All-on-4
    or the All-on-6 surgical implant. However, dont
    worry if any of the issues in the list below crop
    up. Your dentist will help you through any

  • 1. Persistent Bleeding
  • It is a situation where bleeding around your gums
    will not stop. Many a time, this situation
    results from the patient biting down on gauze
    packs. The DIY remedy for persistent bleeding
    involves repositioning the gauze, stop doing any
    physical activities, sit upright, or cool your
    mouth with ice cubes. When nothing works, book an
    appointment with your dentist as soon as
  • 2. Sharp Sensations
  • They occur inside your orifice due to the bony
    walls that previously supported the now missing
    teeth. You may notice protrusions of small bones,
    a few days after the surgical process. Consult
    your dentist if the situation becomes alarming.

  • 3. Dry Lips
  • Your lips might dry up since your mouth will
    stretch to accommodate the wearing gauze.
    Hydrating ointments will help you solve this
  • 4. A Sore Throat
  • The gauze will also keep your mouth slightly ajar
    increasing the risk of a sore throat. If you
    happen to feel that your swallowing is painful,
    there is a very high chance its a sore throat.
    This is a symptom that passes after a few days.
  • 5. Stiff Muscles
  • A stiff jaw is as a result of the gauze that
    keeps your jaw in a certain position for a long
    period. You can counteract the stiffness
    stretching your jaw every now and then. Do it
    slowly and gently.

  • 6. Surgical Complications
  • All surgeries have risks. Possible complications
    after the All-in-4 procedure are profuse
    bleeding, poor healing, and infection. As much as
    a dentist will try and avoid such issue, they
    sometimes do occur. Watch out for symptoms of
    these complications and visit your dentist the
    moment sense something is not right.
  • 7. Discolouration
  • It usually occurs a few days after surgery. You
    will notice blue, black, and/or yellow colours
    around the areas. There is no need for alarm in
    such a situation since it is something normal
    with All-on-4 procedures. To get rid of the
    colouring, try applying moist heat on your cheeks
    from 36 hours after the surgical process.

All-in-4 Implants When Compared to Dentures
  • These two tooth replacement procedures come in
    handy when a patient is suffering from tooth loss
    due to issues like inflammatory gum disease.
    Dentures can either be complete or partial. For
    this procedure, a metal framework permanently or
    temporarily holds dentures that replace missing
    teeth. Heres where the All-on- 4 beats
  • a) Close Resemblance to Natural Teeth
  • All-on-4 implants look exactly like real teeth in
    translucence and color. You bet no one will
    notice any difference if you replace even one
    tooth via this implant technique. On the other
    hand, dentures are entirely different to natural
    teeth because they are prosthetic devices or

  • b) Multiple Teeth Replacement
  • With four dental implants, you can easily anchor
    a set that will permanently replace lost teeth
    throughout the top or bottom of your gums. When
    it comes to dentures, the dentist replaces each
    missing teeth with a plate. The procedure does
    not offer the efficiency in All-on- 4 processes.
  • c) Durability
  • Prosthetic teeth are stain resistant and tough
    because most are porcelain-made. It makes them
    ideal for normal functions of the orifice. Via
    All-on-4, you will be back eating everything you
    love sooner than you would expect. For dentures,
    there are restrictions because you have to
    protect the plates.

  • Patient reviews and dentists stories have for a
    long time confirmed that the All-on- 4 and the
    All-on-6 are extremely successful remedies. By
    looking at the risks and benefits, you will see
    for yourself that these procedures are right for
    anyone. They help you achieve a full, continuous
    killer look, and a smile worth the hassle.
