Hybrid Implant Dentures

all-on-4-lower-1

Immediate teeth replacement on dental implants that function, appear and truly feel like natural teeth in just 3 DAYS!

The technique for total rehabilitation of the edentulous, All-on-4™ is a surgical and prosthetic medical procedure. The concept was developed in the 1990s by Nobel Biocare in collaboration with a Portuguese dentist Dr. Paulo Maló.

Through our close ties with Nobel Biocare, Giorgio Dental have been producing All-on-4™ prosthesis since the late 90’s with fantastic results for Dentists and their patients Australia-wide.

The invention consists of the rehabilitation of the edentulous maxilla and mandible (upper & lower jaw) with fixed prosthesis by placing four implants in the anterior maxilla, where bone density is higher, allowing the highest success rate. The four implants support a fixed prosthesis with 12 to 14 teeth and it is placed immediately on the day of surgery. All-on-4™ is a registered trademark of Nobel Biocare.

The Procedure

Often, tooth loss is accompanied by loss of the jaw bone which poses the problem of reconstruction of the jaw bone. For the implementation to be successful it is necessary to transplant bone from other parts of the body, for example, the iliac crest or the skull and apply it in the area where it is planned to deploy tooth or teeth.

Usually, the bone graft transplant technique takes between three and six months so that the implants can be placed. After implant placement, it is necessary to wait two to three months, after which time it is possible the placement of the fixed prosthesis. The total rehabilitation time lasts about twelve months.

It is impossible for many patients to receive the transplant of bone due to general health reasons (diabetes and others). This accounts for approximately 20% of patients.

The All-on-4™ process addresses these drawbacks because it consists in establishing a fully customized denture (bridge) based only on four titanium implants. These implants act as “pillars” to the bridge that supports the prosthetic teeth. The method takes advantage of existing bone, even if scarce, avoiding the use of bone grafts.

The posterior implants are substantially angled at approximately 45 degrees to avoid compromising the sinus cavity in the upper jaw and the nerve canal in the jaw.

All-on-4™ owes its name to the very nature of the method, which consists of applying a dental prosthesis with at least twelve teeth (bridge) fixed in the jaw, based only on four titanium implants.
