With the All on four technique, four implants are inserted per jaw, placed at specific points in each jaw: two are placed vertically towards the front and the other two are placed where the premolars were.
The four implants serve as anchoring points for the permanent bridge.
As far as implantology goes, it may be the one with immediate loading or with deferred loading, in which case it is necessary to wait 3-6 months for proper healing and a complete osseointegration.
Note: There are no significant differences in the level of osseointegration and healing among the implants with immediate loading, thanks to perfectly biocompatible titanium implants in both cases.
The implantology with immediate loading guarantees the same results and the same efficiency as the one with deferred loading.
• Reducing the number of implants (only 4), • Speed of procedure, • Recovery of the masticatory system after a few days, • Reducing time, • Possibility of implantation even for patients with a lack of bone.
Not all patients are suitable for the ALL-ON-4 technique; actually, the dentist will determine which type of implant is the most appropriate for your clinical case after the treatment and dental X-ray.
