Dental prosthesis in the upper or lower jaw on 4 dental implants
For a completely toothless patient or one whose teeth must all be extracted, a minimum of six to eight implants are usually required to replace a complete dentition on a jaw. This represents a significant cost.
Fortunately, Nobel Biocare’s latest All-on-4® technology provides adequate and effective support for a complete upper or lower jaw prosthesis with only four dental implants. It is based on the same principle as the legs of a chair or table, which can support a considerable weight.
The revolutionary method of the All-on-4® technology consists in placing the two posterior implants at an angle of 45o, which increases their strength and allows them to withstand high masticatory forces. The other two implants are positioned vertically at the front of the jaw.
Advantages of All-on-4® technology
In addition, the patient benefits from the same advantages as other types of implants, i. e:
