The All-on-4 is a surgical technique that is recommended for people who have lost most, if not all of their teeth. Treatment involves the precise placement of titanium implants in the mouth that serve as anchors for a full dental bridge. In many cases, the bridge only needs to be supported by four dental implants, hence the moniker.
Since the All-on-4 technique is able to provide the same structural support while requiring a lesser number of implants, it is able to drastically reduce overall treatment and recovery times. In fact, your dentist can install temporary provisional teeth on the same day of implant placement. Your provisional teeth will also look and function like natural teeth, allowing you to regain your bite quality and a beautiful set of teeth in a short period of time.
