All-On-4® Treatment Concept
Full Row of Teeth Restoration that Prevents Bone LossLosing you teeth is not only embarrassing and inconvenient, it is also dangerous to your overall oral health. Eventually your jaw will lose bone mass and your face will look prematurely old. The best permanent solution that prevents bone loss while restoring a full row of teeth is the All-On-4® Treatment Concept.
The All-On-4® Treatment Concept was developed to provide edentulous patients (patients with no teeth) with an efficient and effective restoration using only four implants to support an immediately loaded full-arch prosthesis.
Stability Even in Minimum Bone VolumeBy tilting the two implants in the back, longer implants can be used in patients who have lost quite a bit of bone in their jaw, increasing bone-to-implant contact and reducing the need for bone grafting. The tilted posterior (back) implants can be anchored in better quality bone, reducing any rocking that may occur and thus improving support of the implant-supported denture.
Planning for All-on-4Reno-Tahoe Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center has advanced tools that allows us to view detailed diagnostics such as identification of available bone, virtually see implant placement according to the anatomical situation and prosthetic needs, and give Dr. Redlinger the ability to order an individualized surgical template.
Prosthetic FlexibilityWith the All-On-4® Treatment Concept, our patients benefit from immediate implant-supported restoration, as a temporary tooth restoration is screwed onto the implants right after surgery. Final solutions for the All-On-4® Treatment Concept include both fixed prostheses, such as NobelProcera Implant Bridge Titanium with acrylic veneering, or individual NobelProcera crowns cemented to the bridge framework, and removable solutions, such as acrylic overdentures on a NobelProcera Implant Bar Overdenture.
Increased EfficiencyThe All-On-4® Treatment Concept allows Reno-Tahoe Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center to streamline the time needed for dental implant treatment, giving you the smile you've always dreamed of in less time. To learn more, contact us today!
