What is All-On-4?
All-On-4 is a way to offer patient who have missing teeth (and those with a failing set of teeth) a fixed set of teeth, supported by at least 4 implants.
The technique was developed by Dr Paulo Malo, and it utilises implants from the Nobel Biocare company.
The main benefits it offers are:
1. Immediate function (Implants placed and a fixed prothesis in as little as 1-3 days)
2. No need to do complex bone grafting! (That is taking bone from your hip or Cow bone). This reduces the time to achieve the same result when compared to previously. The placement of the implants is the way in which bow grafting can be avoided.
3. There is a reduction in time and cost as compared with alternative full arch rehabilitation.
