The All-on-4®treatment concept provides highly effective, full-arch rehabilitation.

Suitable for edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous patients, this treatment utilizes a novel tilted design to the posterior implants to maximize utilization of the extant bone. In doing so, this treatment concept avoids the need for lengthy and difficult to predict bone grafts, saving considerable time, costs and reducing potential complications.

While this angled approach opens up more treatment possibilities it does so without sacrifice. Bone loss and survival rates are well in line with more traditional methods. [i][ii]

This treatment concept allows for immediate implant loading, shortening the time-to-teeth. A fixed full-arch prosthesis can be fitted on the day of surgery, rapidly and substantially improving the patient’s quality of life. By shortening treatment time patients can more quickly regain quality of speech, facial esthetics and invaluable self-esteem. The impact of these factors on the quality of life patients enjoy should not be underestimated, nor their satisfaction in returning to normal function.

The All-on-4®treatment concept has proven itself time and again to be a reliable long-term solution.[iii]
