What Treatment Methods Are There for Patients Who Have No Tooth? What is the All On Four Implant Technique? What are the advantages? To Whom Can It Be Applied? Is There Any Pain After All On Four Procedure?
The All On Four implant technique is a technique that we can apply to our patients with no teeth, 4 implants for a single chin, two parallel implants to the anterior jaw and two angled implants to the back, and we can apply fixed temporary prostheses on the day of surgery.
When the bone loss in the back is excessive, the sinus hangs down, and the nerve coming from the lower jaw is formed in an area closer to the bone. Therefore, according to the standard implant process, we need to apply bone powder before we can implant in the posterior regions, but when we can bypass the sinus cavities in the back and place the implants at an angle in the all on four technique, we can make teeth in the posterior groups as well.
At the same time, since we apply temporary fixed prostheses that our patient cannot remove on the day of the surgery, our patients do not have to use a prosthesis that can be put on and removed at three months, during the fusion of the bone and the implant.
To Whom All on 4 Implants Are Applied?
It can be applied to our patients who have no teeth or have very few teeth left in their mouths, but now need their extraction.
How are All on 4 implants made?
Beforehand, we use panoramic radiography and tomography in our hospital to decide where and how to place the implants. In this way, we complete the surgical operation with a definitive result. It takes at most one week to make a fixed, non-removable screwed prosthesis by surgical operation.
What are the advantages of All on 4 implants?
One of the most important advantages is that our patients get their teeth in a short time and gain comfort. Since there is no base covering the palate, it is more convenient and comfortable for the patients to get used to the newly made teeth.
