All-on-4® All on 6® treatment concept
The process that started with the development of dental implants by Swedish Doctor Per-Ingvar Branemark, who proved that bone can be biologically fused with titanium, led to years of groundbreaking discoveries in dentistry, and then to the miracle method known as the All-on-4® treatment concept.
The birth of implants laid the foundation for replacing missing teeth. But the ability to replace an entire jaw with just 4 or 6 titanium implants is a true marvel of modern dentistry. This treatment concept was first developed with Nobel Biocare All-on-4® in 1998 by European innovator Dr. Performed by Paulo Malo.
What is the All-on-4® All-on-6® treatment concept?
The All-on-4® treatment concept is a life-changing, same-day surgical and prosthetic procedure for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. This innovative procedure involves attaching a full prosthetic bridge to the jaw with four or six dental implants in one surgery. A reliable and efficient alternative to traditional prostheses, the All-on-4® treatment concept has been successfully applied to thousands of patients over the years.
Why is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Different From Other Protheses?
The All-on-4® treatment concept allows patients who have lost all their teeth or who need to have all their teeth removed due to severe caries or bone loss, to have their teeth extracted, implants and temporary hard teeth placed on the same day, more naturally and without restriction. In this way, it is a more durable and permanent solution that allows patients to eat, talk and laugh without interruption.
Is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept a good Option for me?
There are several considerations that indicate whether you are an ideal candidate for this procedure. The factors that you need to keep in your mind when considering restoring your smile with the All-On-4® treatment concept:
Missing Teeth – Since the All-On-4® treatment concept includes a full denture, the remaining teeth must be removed. However, if you have decayed teeth or bone loss, these teeth should also be extracted during the implant surgery and then place the implants and the temporary prosthesis should be fixed in the same session. Dr. Furkan Basak will explain the whole process to you the most accurate way and answer your questions during your visit.
Your General Health Situation – As with any surgery, the better your overall health, the faster the recovery and the lower the chance of infection. The decision to treat patients with advanced heart disease, patients who have received radiotherapy in the head and neck region, and patients with advanced diabetes is taken after the approval of their doctors. Dr. Furkan Basak can easily evaluate whether your general health status and jaw structure are suitable for all-On-4®/6® after your oral examination.
What is included in the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Process?
Thanks to decades of research and advancement in the latest technology, replacing teeth with the All-on-4® system is typically only a one-day procedure, so the process is pretty quick. This surgical (invasive) dental implant solution allows the remove of remaining teeth and cleaning of infected or diseased tissues, placement and suturing of each implant, and then fixing your temporary dentures to the implants at the same day. In this way, you will come out of the door with a temporary prosthetic tooth attached to the implants and you will eat with your temporary but new teeth that night! We will then meet with you to make your permanent teeth in the following months to ensure the perfect fit and comfort.
