What is the All on 4 Treatment Concept?

Posted on 3/8/2021 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
What is the All on 4 Treatment Concept?Some patients seeking artificial tooth solutions choose dental implants for their convenience and their lasting power. They like the idea that their artificial teeth are secured in their mouth permanently by embedding them into their jawbone. Then they are told they do not have enough healthy bone mass in their jawbones. It can be devastating. In most cases having a bone graft can help rebuild the lost bone tissue but this is expensive and time-consuming. There are other options available. One such option is known as the All-on-4 treatment concept. Developed by Nobel BioCare it does not require the same amount of healthy bone mass to complete.

Benefits of the All on 4 Treatment

Due to the All-on-4 treatment concept taking place in a single appointment, it is far less expensive. While traditional dental implants require multiple appointments spread out over many months, the All-on-4 concept does not. From having their teeth pulled and the site cleaned of all disease and decay to the actual placement of the implants, it can all be done in a single appointment taking less than two hours. This makes it more convenient for the patient and cuts down the cost.

Why Does it Require Less Bone Mass?

Patients might be asking themselves how it is possible that the All-on-4 treatment concept takes less bone mass than traditional implants. The answer is simple. While traditional implants are embedded in an almost vertical position, the All-on-4 implants are not. They are inserted at an angle which means they do not penetrate the bone as deeply as conventional dental implants. Therefore, less mass is needed which also saves money for the patient. This is because with traditional implants if there is not adequate bone mass, a bone graft is necessary to help rebuild the lost bone mass and ensure a proper foundation for the implants to be placed.
