All on 4 Dental Implants,
Install All Teeth with Only 4 Implants
Dental Implant is a dental treatment that aims to replace missing teeth. Dental implant treatment can be done in cases of missing one tooth or many teeth. Then the question is, is it necessary to install 32 implants if all teeth are lost? The answer is no. All on 4 Dental Implant is a solution for problems in cases of missing a lot of teeth. What is All on 4 Dental Implant? In this article, we will discuss All On 4 Dental Implants.
The All on 4 Dental Implant procedure is a treatment concept that uses a maximum of 4 implants to support the edentulous area to receive a complete denture. This treatment allows the placement of complete dentures in the case of missing all teeth. Various studies have shown the success of this treatment both short and long term up to 98%. In the past, replacing an entire set of teeth usually required more implants, could include a jawbone graft, and it would take about 6 months of healing before your mouth was ready for crowns or dentures. With the “All On” approach, healing will take less time as there are fewer implants, and temporary dentures can usually be placed with your permanent denture ready (usually within 3 months). This treatment is divided into 2 stages, namely stage 1 and stage 2. Stage 1 consists of consultation, supporting examinations, installation of dental implants and bone grafts, and installation of temporary dentures. Phase 2 consists of dental impressions, measuring of bite mounts, try in frame works, and installation. Before deciding to do this treatment, you must first consult with the dentist who treats you. Dental implant treatment can only be carried out by dentists who specialize in oral surgery, periodontists, prosthodontists, and dentists who are already dental implant certified.
After consulting some additional tests can be done if needed, for example dental x-rays. This will make it easier for the treating dentist to analyze and determine the right treatment plan for you. The All on 4 procedure was performed by placing 2 units in the anterior parallel to the axial axis of the teeth and 2 units in the posterior oblique positioned distal posteriorly. In most cases of edentulous totalis (loss of all teeth), usually the height of the bone that supports the teeth (alveolar bone) has atrophy. This condition of low alveolar bone requires the dentist to perform a bone graft procedure to increase the height of the alveolar bone, especially in the posterior part. This bone graft procedure will take a little while for the tissue to heal completely to proceed to stage 2, usually 3 months after stage 1 is complete.
Permanent dentures take several forms depending on the preference of the patient. There are options that are removable for cleaning (overdenture) and those that are permanently attached to the implant (fixed). Whatever the patient chooses will depend on their preferences and lifestyle. Be sure to discuss your options with your dentist before stepping into this treatment.
