What does the All-on-4® surgical technique consist of?
The All-on-4® concept allows fully edentulous people with severe maxillary atrophy to enjoy a fixed total rehabilitation without resorting to bone grafts.
The upper jaw is more subject to bone loss, not only due to the loss of teeth, but also because of the pneumatisation of the maxillary sinus. These factors cause a lack of posterior bone. It is common to see people with bone only in the anterior area from canine to canine. People with these characteristics are especially candidates for fixed total rehabilitation.
How is the All-on-4® treatment planned?
These interventions are always planned with CT scans that provide well-defined images in several three-dimensional planes. Using the 3D X-ray scan it is possible to plan the intervention site, the inclination and diameter of the implant, as well as the entire process involving the surgery and subsequent procedures.
