This full arch rehabilitative system has been used successfully to restore smiles in hundreds of thousands of people since then.
In this article we will talk about what all on 4 dental implants are as well as the reasons that make Mexico a suitable option for them.
What are All on 4 Implants?
The concept is based on the premise that you don’t need one dental implant for every tooth that needs to be restored.
For rehabilitation of the entire arch, four implants are placed in the jaw.
As the implants are made of titanium, they seamlessly anchor themselves into the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration.
After fusing with the jawbone, the All-on-4 dental implants function as a natural part of the jaw.
These implants are topped by a temporary set of teeth in the upper or lower arch.
The implants are allowed to heal for 3-6 months; this time period helps the implants to form a strong foundation for the replacement teeth.
After this time period, the implants are topped with permanent teeth.
Did you know? In some edentulous patients with atrophied jawbone, restoration with ordinary implants makes certain additional procedures such as nerve transposition and grafting imperative. All-on-4-implants discount the need for such additional surgeries.1
Advantages of All on Four Solution for Full Mouth Rehabilitation
The entire process is quick; usually the dental implant procedure takes 5 days and you can return home with a temporary denture.
After successfully integrating with the jawbone in 4-5 months, the four implants are ready to receive permanent teeth which unlike dentures do not wobble in the mouth and give a natural appearance to the face.
The new set of teeth function just like natural teeth and are aesthetically pleasing
Patients with poor bone density benefit from All-on-4 implants as they do not require invasive bone grafting. Bone grafting is prevented by titling the two implants towards the rear to an angle of 45°.2
Since the implants are topped with immediately loaded provisional dental prostheses, they allow the patient to enjoy immediate functioning of their new teeth; for this reason, All-on-4 dentures are also synonymous with “new teeth in a day.”
All on 4 implants minimize bone loss; according to a study by P Malo and colleagues, the average bone loss after rehabilitation of the edentulous jaw with these implants stood at 1.7 mm, 1.7mm, and 1.9 mm at 1, 3, and 5 years respectively.3
This rate is much lower than the average rate of bones loss in the edentulous (3.55 mm in males and 6.59 mm in females).4
Be advised that every case is different and, in some cases, “teeth-in-a-day” may actually be a misnomer as the dental surgeon may find it impossible to immediately top the implants with temporaries.
All-on-4 implants allow the edentulous as well as those almost on the verge of becoming edentulous get a new set of teeth in a single appointment.
Survival Rates At 5-Year Follow-up
According to a research study by Charles A. Babbush and colleagues, at 5-year follow-up while the All-on-4 dental implants have a cumulative survival rate (CSR) of 99.6%, the CSR for implants embedded in the maxilla (upper jaw) and the mandible (lower jaw) stands at 99.3% and 100%, respectively.
The prosthesis survival rate, according to the study, is 100%.
