What is an All-on-4 Implant Bridge?
The all-on-4 implant bridge combine dental implant technology with a dental bridge concept. The number “4” in the All-on-4 implant comes for the 4 implants used in the bridge. Rather than placing each implant individually, the 4 anchor in the bridge of teeth.
The implant surgery is done first and then the replacement teeth are attached on the same day. Instead of being individual teeth, the replacement looked more like a bolted-down bridge. This is called hybrid denture.
The design and placement of the implants allows the teeth to immediately support natural chewing forces just like real teeth.
With traditional implants, a waiting period exists between surgically placing the posts and attaching replacement teeth.
The All-on-4 dental implants procedure eliminates this waiting period to let you experience a functional, new smile right away. You’ll often hear this implant dentistry method called teeth in a day or teeth in an hour.
