the all on 4 concept: an innovative surgical and prosthetic procedure
The All on 4 technique was developed to provide edentulous patients with an efficient and effective restoration using four implants to support immediately loaded full-arch prosthesis. This concept offers good stability in atrophic jaws using tilted implants in minimum bone height regions and avoids the need of complicate long term procedures as bone augmentation and sinus lift. The use of special trans-mucosal angled and straight multi-unit abutments for screw retained restoration, simplifies the prosthetic procedures in these cases. The immediate loading of implants in native bone or in post-extractive sockets provides function, aesthetic and social life for the patient, from the post-operative till the end of the treatment.
The purpose of this lecture is to allow dentists to propose, with high predictability, immediate esthetical and functional rehabilitation for edentulous and patients with terminal dentition.
During the course the speaker will show you how the patient will have Immediate Function and excellent esthetics with a limited number of implants.
This course will teach you the skills and know-how to treat patients using the All on 4 Surgical Protocol, from patient selection to treatment planning, all the way through to the fitting of the prosthesis so you can offer immediate function to your patients.
This way of patient selection and treatment will boost patient satisfaction and make final restorations simpler and more successful.
