What is All Teeth On Four Implants?
The term Teeth On 4 refers to “all” teeth in one jaw being supported “on four” dental implants. This is a surgical and prosthodontic procedure for total rehabilitation of the edentulous patients or for patients with badly broken down teeth, decayed teeth or compromised teeth due to gum disease.
It consists of the rehabilitation of either edentulous or dentate maxilla and/or mandible with fixed prosthesis by placing minimum of four implants in the area of jaw where bone density is higher.
The four implants support a fixed prosthesis with 12 teeth and can be placed immediately, typically within 24-48 hours of surgery.
However, immediate loading requires criteria which may not be possible in every patient. The dentist will make the final decision for immediately loading the implants after placing the implants.
The technique of All on four implants evolved when in an attempt to avoid certain anatomical limitations typically seen in the back of the upper and lower jaws have, clinicians successfully avoided bone-deficient areas with the use of angulated implants.
Dental implants are traditionally placed in the vertical position but anatomical limitations are more prevalent in patients with full dentures, and once the back implants are placed at an angle there is often only enough room left for two more implants in the front.
This has led to the use of only four fixtures to support a full set of teeth which can reduce the cost to the patient.
Although, All on 4 treatment can help many edentulous patients but is not the only option for many patients with existing remaining teeth. A thorough assessment of the clinical and radiographic information will be performed prior to recommending a treatment plan.
The fixed bridge which fits over the implants comes in few different forms. The prosthetic options provide different strength and long term durability.
1. Basic Acrylic Bridge.
This is a basic acrylic bridge which is usually fitted on the implants within 24-48 hours after placing the implants. If the implants can’t be loaded, a provisional denture may be made.
This option is included in the cost of $11500.
However, it may need a reline to fit better with the underlying tissues after the healing phase which will be on additional cost.
2. Titanium Reinforced Hybrid Bridge.
A metal bar will be milled to reinforce the bridge. This bridge is a precise and strong fixed bridge which provides high aesthetics and hygienic form.
3. Titanium Reinforced Zirconia Bridge
The bridge is a metal reinforced bridge with overlaying ceramic teeth. The strength of these bridges are very high. Although, it is the premium restorative option but is more expensive.
The costs may vary for each individual case. An individual treatment plan will be offered after a thorough clinical and radiographic examination of each patient.
Terms and conditions: Prices are subject to change in the future. Prices are intended as a guide only and do not include any necessary pre-surgical interventions (e.g. extractions, bone grafts, sinus lifting, temporary dentures, and any other additional dental treatment).
After an initial consultation and treatment planning you will receive an individual quote to address your needs. Please note that dental implants are not suitable for all patients. You are required to provide your detailed medical history. The results of individual treatments may vary. We may refuse offering treatment for unsuitable patients, medically compromised patients and heavy smokers.
Any surgical procedure carries risks which also may depend on your general health. Dental implants may fail due to variety of reasons. If you fail an implant during the healing stage, it may be replaced at no cost to you. Long term success of implants will depend on your health, maintenance and regular dental visits. If you fail an implant because for medical reasons or poor hygiene, the warranty won’t apply.
Before proceeding you are recommended to seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Warranty conditions: Limited warranty for dental implant reconstructions:
Only 6 months warranty on the Basic Acrylic bridges.
Lifetime warranty on the metal frameworks of the bridge.
Two years warranty for the Acrylic section of the bridge.
Five years warranty for the Zirconia and ceramic bridge.
Warranty is only valid if patient returns for the 6 months check-up visits at our Symplants clinics. Failures due to different reasons won’t be covered.
