All on 4 Implants is trademark method of Dental implant treatment developed by the Nobel Biocare Implant company. It involves placement of four Implants on either arch in a designated manner so as to avoid the complications of an enlarged maxillary sinus in the maxilla and to bypass the mental foramen in the lower arch.
A Dental implant is an artificial tooth root made mainly of a biocompatible metal called Titanium. These Titanium posts are inserted in the place of the missing tooth root so that it can support the arfificial crown. Previously fixed replacement of lost tooth was performed by grinding out the adjacent teeth and fixing a teeth bridge onto the ground out teeth.
If the Implant represents the tooth root, what if an entire jaw or both the jaws are in a completely edentulous ( no teeth) state. Should Implants be placed for each and every missing tooth in the jaw. That would amount to a very expensive treatment and an extensive surgical procedure to place all the implants in the bone. So Various concepts were made to reduce the number of implants in the jaw while maximising the function of the prosthesis.
The maxillary sinus is an air filled cavity in the upper jaw. This cavity keeps on increasing in size when there are no teeth. This reduces the amount of bone available for Implant placement. Therefore additional procedures like sinus lifting had to be done to place the implants.How to avoid these additional procedures.
Four Implants were placed in the upper and lower jaw. The two front implants were placed in a straight manner and two back implants were tilted to avoid the maxillary sinus in the upper jaw and mandibular nerve in the lower jaw. This reduces the complicated surgical procedure and also eliminates the distal cantilever of the prosthesis.
