All-on-4® Implants

Reinvigorate your smile with a natural look and feel!

The All-on-4® treatment concept is a cost-effective, advanced technique, whereby a whole arch of teeth is supported by only four implants. Keeping the natural look, feel, and even function of your teeth.

What are All-on-4® Implants?

All-on-4® dental implant solution helps you to achieve a full, healthy smile with faster treatment time and more cost-effectively than other alternatives. This advanced technique is used for full arch rehabilitation if you have lost all your teeth or are about to lose them.

The term All-on-4® refers to the technique that avoids the need to put an implant under every tooth, being able to support an entire arch with as little as 4 implant foundations. This solution includes the back two implants being fixed at an intentional angle to provide the required support for total reconstruction. It is suitable for almost all lower cases and most upper cases.
