All on 4 Dental Implants
All on 4 dental implants is a minimally invasive procedure. It works by offering a fixed full-arch restoration and is a solution that has gained high patient satisfaction.
Why should I choose All on 4?
The first and maybe the most compelling reason would be that this ‘all in one day’ treatment will deliver a rapid improvement in quality of life
The All-on-4® treatment concept is designed to provide edentulous and those patients soon-to-be edentulous with a fixed full-arch prosthesis that is fixed to four implants and is completed in one day.
Shorter treatment times
One element contributes to the complexity of any treatment and that is the number of surgeries, and the overall time that any treatment takes. The All on 4 dental implants procedure involves tilting of the posterior implant avoiding the necessity for time-consuming bone grafting with the immediate loading of the teeth offering an instant result.
Costs are lower
The All-on-4® procedure is a very fast treatment option, and is also less costly when compared with conventional implant treatment modalities that are used for the edentulous and imminently edentulous jaw.
Offers stability even when there is minimum bone volume
In tilting the two posterior implants, implants that are longer can be utilised increasing bone-to-implant contact and avoiding the need for vertical bone augmentation. The tilted implants can be anchored in the better quality anterior bone.
Two elements give immediate satisfaction to patients:
1. Immediate Functionality
Because of their design and dedicated drilling protocols, these implants have a high stability.
2. Provides optimal aesthetics
This form of implant treatment has been proved to deliver patient satisfaction.
All on 4 Dental Implantation is a far less invasive implant procedure, and is suitable for patients who are not capable of accepting fitted implants. A full set of teeth is fitted on four dental implants placed at carefully identified sites at the back of the jaw and at the front. These implants can then be the footing for several possible tooth replacement options and represents an affordable implant option at a very competitive price.

- Greater flexibility and choice
- A comfortable experience when compared to some other alternatives
- No restriction in diet
- Full dental bridge, supported by four dental implants replaces all teeth
- Fewer implants mean fewer appointments
- Treatment time is reduced
How much does the all on 4 procedure cost?
