How Does The All-on-4 Implant System Work?

Normally, at least 6 implants are required to support a full arch of new teeth. However, with the ground-breaking All-on-4 implant system only 4 implants are actually required. All-on-4 implants are able to bear an entire arch due to their specific angle positioning at the front of the mouth, where the bone is strongest.

How the All-on-4 Implant System works:

  • Two implants are placed at the front of the mouth
  • Two implants are placed at the back of the mouth
  • The front implants are positioned vertically
  • The implants found at the back are placed at 45 degree angles
  • The system uses the dense bone at the front of the mouth to provide maximum support for the arch.
  • The implants are attached to the new restorations within the same day
  • The patient is then able to show off their brand new smile.
