What is the All on Four Treatment Concept?

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graftless solution that provides patients with a fixed temporary full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.

Characteristics include:

  • Full-arch rehabilitation with only four to six implants
    Two to four straight anterior implants and two implants tilted up to 45º in the posterior
  • Immediate Function (fixed provisional bridge)
    For patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of implants
  • Graftless procedure
    Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants, utilizing available bone

treatment

We do our due diligence to make sure you’re happy with your new smile and that your procedure and recovery are as comfortable as possible.

Before your surgery you will meet with Mike Risk, our Lab Manager. He will work with you to help pick out the size, shape and color of your new set of temporary teeth. Because these teeth are temporary, when we begin the second phase of your treatment (fabrication of the final prosthetic), you have a second opportunity to make adjustments so that you are comfortable with your decision and love your new smile. With this process, you have the chance to see the aesthetic of your teeth prior to making a lifelong commitment.

Prior to treatment, you will meet with either Dr. Doncaster or Dr. Al-Janabi. During this appointment the doctor will review your case, provide you with detailed explanations of all of your treatment options, study your health history, review your X-rays and CT scans, and prepare you to have your surgery.

If it has been determined that sedation is required for you procedure it will be by conscious sedation. This type of sedation will put you into a dreamlike state, keeping you relaxed and comfortable while the dentist is working on your smile. During your treatment you will be constantly monitored by an ECDC RN and the ECDC team.

We know that any type of surgery can be nerve-wracking and stressful.

This is why we go out of our way to make sure you know exactly what to expect and the steps you’ll need to take to have optimal results. As with any surgery, there can be some discomfort, swelling and sometimes minor bruising.

Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated. All of our “All-on-4” patients have been given a post surgery workbook to use as a reference during their healing period. Most patients report that when these instructions are followed, they experienced very few post-operative complications.
