All About All On 4 Dental Implants
What is the All On 4 Dental Implants?
The All On Four Implants is a concept. It is also called "All On Six", or "All On X". But, in general, people know them as "All-On-4"
The All On 4 is a treatment where four dental implants are set into your jawbone or maxilla.
The All-On-4 works based on pure physics; the implants working together create a strong foundation. On top of those implants (through the special abutment) we load on top and anchor a palateless, full-arch restoration. The restoration can be,
- Full-arch Zirconia Implant Bridge
- Fixed Hybrid Bridge
- Snap On Dentures
For the upper maxilla, two of the dental implants will be set straight and the other two are set in an angled position. Or anywhere where the CT Scan shows the best bone availability.
With the All On Four, you get rid of the traditional dentures that have a covered palate.
The Prettau Zirconia Superstructure is a fixed denture secured to your implants. You will be able to chew and taste your foods like when you had your regular teeth in optimal shape. Or even better!
What goes "on top" of the All On Four Implants?
The All On Four is fit with a palateless denture That Doesn't Slip Or Move
Common dentures require dental glue in a try to keep them in place. Using these adhesives on a regular basis can also cause stomach problems.
The implant supported dentures are the Prettau Zirconia full-arch bridge.
These are some of the benefits you get with the All On Four,

How stable is the All On four treatment?
Why the All On Four Works? The success of the implant-supported dentures on the four posts previously set into your bone. Those posts are the foundation for any restoration of dentures with implants you decide to place on top.
In the end of the 90's, a Portuguese doctor called Paulo Maló, designed a new concept for a fixed denture.
By 2004, Dr. Maló teamed up with Nobel Biocare and they followed over 2,000 cases. Today, there are over 100,000 patients worldwide that have received this treatment.
The design of the treatment has developed over time. Nowadays, it is the top-notch solution for people that need full mouth implants.
First, four implants will be surgically set per arch (or six for the case of the All-On-6 treatment). The implants are set into a jawbone in an angled position or where you have abetter bone density.
The posts as a group, provide the stability and needed grip to load on top a palateless denture.
It doesn't move or slips. There is also no need for any dental adhesives.
The key to the treatment is the grip and stability the posts give when you want to chew or bite.
You will be able to eat again all the foods you could chew before you lost your teeth. Chewy foods, hard foods, or anything you can not eat now with your common dentures.
What happens during and after the All On 4 surgery?
After your clinical evaluation with 3D imagery - CT Scan, we will create surgical guides to set your implant. All the technology we use at our clinic is computerized.
The setting of the tooth implants is a quick and minor surgery that lasts about 90 minutes per arch. Four implants will be set per arch (or six, in the case of an All-On-6 treatment).
During the surgery, we use local anesthesia. Or you can choose sedation at an extra cost.
Right after the surgery, you could feel mild discomfort and swelling that will be addressed with analgesics and antibiotics. Depending on each case, but usually, after a couple of days after the
Depending on each case, but usually, after a couple of days after the surgery, we are able to provide you temporary teeth.
They will help you eat and look normal for the next four to six months. We also have available "Teeth In A Day" at an extra cost.
After four to six months, you will return to Cancun for the second stage of the treatment. Through minimal surgery, we will uncover the head of those implants and we will prepare them to be load after wax tests.
Eight to ten days later, we deliver a hybrid bridge, titanium/porcelain or zirconium. The fixed bridge is secured to the head of the implants set months earlier.
How to know if I am a candidate?
Some patients have bigger jawbones or have a larger jawbone structure. In those cases, we will suggest All-On-6. That means placing six implants, instead of four. The All On Six can provide extra stability, in special for those patients with low bone density.
If you are missing one or several teeth, then this is the right choice for you. The All-On-4 is good option in the next scenarios:
All On 4? Or All On 6?

All On 4 Dental Implants problems
Which are the most common All On Four dental implants problems?
The most common problem would be losing your implants due to an infection or a bone rejection.
After the surgery, it takes four to six months until the implant bonds with the bone. The process is the Osseointegration; it is a natural response from your body.
During the waiting period, your oral hygiene plays a crucial role. Your daily habits must improve as well. You need to brush three times a day, use mouthwash and water floss like Waterpik, and keep a rigorous hygiene control.
If your hygiene after the surgery is weak, you can develop bacteria around the stitches, and it can cause an infection. The round of antibiotics is also essential, and to follows the dentist's instructions.
The most common dental implants problems are when the bond fails to bond with the titanium screw. It has a more significant rejection incidence in people who smoke. The nicotine and the heat don't help on the dental implant recovery or healing.
