All-on-four implant therapy can be used as a fixed denture instead when you do not want to use a moving denture for different reasons. Melting in the jawbone, lack of sufficient bone thickness, or the fact that you have lost the vast majority of your teeth may be among these reasons. In such cases, the all-on-four implant application allows you to have fixed dentures with a single surgical procedure. In cases, the additional dental implants are not suitable for your treatment, all-On-Four implants are designed to replace them, even if you have lost all your upper and lower teeth.
Traditionally, each dental implant has a small titanium screw inserted into the gums. All on Four implant application also uses a titanium screw mechanism, while the difference occurs when placing these screws in the mouth. In traditional methods, the number of screws to be used to prevent tooth loss is minimized by this method. In other words, when we think of a completely toothless jaw, this loss will be compensated by 8-10 implants, while 4 implants will be sufficient with the all-on-four method. Of these 4 implants, those placed in front will have a 90-degree angle and those placed at the back will have a 45-degree angle. Because all-on-four implants are made of titanium, they are highly successful and long-lasting in the matter of symphysis with living bone and functioning as part of it. So it also prevents bone loss that can occur in the jaw.
In addition, the all-on-four implant application does not require bone grafting or sinus augmentation treatment. Therefore, it is more economical compared to traditional applications.
What are the stages of treatment?
Suitable planning is made for the patient by detailed clinical and radiological examination process together with computed tomography (CT) measurements.
The All On Four procedure consists of two stages. After 4 dental implants are placed in the jaw, the temporary dental prosthesis is fixed on top of the dental implants within the same day. Some pain and swelling may occur after the procedure. These complications can be easily controlled with medications that you will use in accordance with the advice of your doctor.
After 3 months, permanent dental prostheses are made.
The recovery time of traditional implants ranges from approximately three to eight months, but with all-on-four implants, the healing process occurs faster. During this process, you should be careful not to eat foods that are hard or require a lot of chewing, as the bones and gums will change shape to adapt to the new fixture.
