All-on-4® with Nobel Biocare implants is a revolutionary procedure which has already allowed thousands of patients worldwide to enjoy new beautiful smiles as well as given them freedom and comfort in everyday life. Thanks to All-on-4® treatment patients without any teeth left can get a new quality of life. This method enables us to reconstruct a full dental arch (a new set on teeth) on only 4 implants.
Who qualifies for All-on-4® ?
Patients with all their teeth missing and fully healed gums, which in practical terms means that the latest extraction has been carried out no earlier than 3 months (12 weeks) prior to commencing the «all on four» procedure. It is also possible to perform extractions at our clinic, however, it will be considered as an additional stage of treatment. A CT-scan to assess the quality and quantity of the bone will be carried out during the first stage of treatment, i.e. 12 weeks after the extractions.
- bone in the upper/lower jaw has to be at least 4,5 mm wide and over 11 mm high
All-on-4® is not suitable if you suffer from diabetes, bruxism, if you have had a heart attack in the past or if you are a heavy smoker.
How to proceed?
1. Stage one (duration of stay: 3 - 4 days) – during this stage we perform a detailed assessment, carry out a 3-dimensional CT scan as well as an OPG, prepare dentures and plan the insertion of implants in our special software.
2. Stage two is carried out 2 - 3 weeks after the first stage (duration of stay: 5 working days) – during this stage 4 - 5 - 6 Nobel Biocare implants are inserted with the immediate fitting of a denture or a long-term temporary acrylic dental bridge (non-removable), which will serve for approximately 6 months, (note that the above-mentioned temporary solutions are only possible, when primary stability has been achieved – this is to be evaluated by the surgeon during the surgery).
After approximately 6 months, the patient can either choose to have the existing denture or acrylic bridge adjusted or to have a new final denture or a new metal-porcelain bridge made.
In the case of missing primary stability, the procedure will continue as traditional dental implant surgery i.e. we will insert implants and the patient will get a traditional removable full denture, then after approximately 6-months healing period, dental impressions will be taken and the treatment will be finalized.
All-on-4® procedure costs approx. £7500-£9000/per arch at our clinic in Krakow.
