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.
The term All-on-4® refers to the technique of supporting an entire arch of teeth with just four implant foundations, avoiding the need to put an implant under every tooth. This solution has the back two implants fixed at an intentional angle that provides the required support for total reconstruction. All-on-4 implants are suitable for most cases, although patients should speak with a clinician before making any decisions.
All-on-4® dental implants can help patients achieve a full, healthy smile, and can be faster and more cost-effective than some treatment alternatives. This advanced technique is used to restore a full set of teeth for individuals who have lost all their natural teeth or are at risk of losing them.

The main difference is the number of implants fixed permanently into your jaw. All-on-4 Dental implants are strategically placed in areas of the mouth with the best bone support, and require just four implants to secure entire arches of teeth. On the other hand, dental implants require one fixture per tooth.
