Why Is It Called The All-on-4® Treatment Concept?
The All-on-4® treatment concept was pioneered as a superior alternative to dentures and older types of dental implants. It works for patients who have lost a large number of teeth, or whose teeth have been damaged beyond replacement. Unlike dentures, which don’t support the jaw and can lead to bone deterioration, All-on-4® implants strengthen your existing jawline while providing a full set of beautiful teeth.
If you think you might benefit from All-on-4®, Glendale’s top dental surgeons at Lytle, Tate & Stamper can help. But why is it called the All-on-4® treatment concept?
An Innovative Technique
The technique first began with dentist Paulo Malo. The title refers to the fact that it provides a full set of teeth for your upper and/or lower jaw with only 4 implants used to hold them in place. These four implants create a mutually reinforcing trapezoidal bond that holds the new teeth with considerable strength.
The dentist starts by removing any remaining teeth and then placing four implants along the jaw. Several hours later, a temporary set of teeth are connected to the implants while they set and strengthen. After about 4-5 months, your permanent implants will be ready and you can return to the dentist to have them installed.
