Implants and fixed dentures in one day in edentulous patients
All on four treatment is a treatment performed by placing all fixed teeth on 4 implants in cases where the lower or upper jaw is completely edentulous.
In this treatment, if the conditions are suitable, tooth extraction, dental implants and temporary fixed denture teeth are performed on the same day. Advantages: Both extraction and implants are performed in a single surgical procedure and the patient is separated from the clinic with fixed prosthetic teeth.
In today's world, one of the most important factors determining the quality of life is oral and dental health.
In order to respond to the developing conditions and rising expectations in recent years, new treatment concepts have emerged in dentistry, as in every field. The most striking of these concepts in the field of implant is the "All on Four" application.
All on Four has become more preferred with its high patient satisfaction and fast results compared to similar treatments.
Implants are the most ideal method offered by dentistry to correct functional, aesthetic and speech disorders caused by lost teeth. However, implant treatment is a very long and costly procedure, especially in patients with complete edentulous and bone insufficiency.
All on Four treatment is a method used to eliminate advanced bone surgeries and bone grafting procedures in patients with complete edentulous and bone insufficiency.
The difference with traditional full jaw implant treatments is the number of implants used, their length and the angle of insertion.
Two implants are placed at right angles in the front part of the jaw, and 2 long implants in the back part at an angle of 45 degrees. With this angulation, traditional treatments and prostheses that require 6-8 implants are supported with 4 implants.
The need for sinus lift and bone grafting procedures, which should be performed in patients with insufficient bone in the posterior region of the jaw, also disappears. This further reduces the treatment costs compared to traditional full jaw implant treatment.
Another advantage of All on Four treatment is that when adequate bone quality is provided, a fixed temporary prosthesis can be placed on the same day. In order for permanent prostheses to be installed, the osseointegration period of 4-6 months should be expected to expire.
