"All on Four" treatments are best suited to patients with no upper or lower teeth. Four implants placed in the mandible can support an entire set of new teeth, fixed to the implants and non-removable by the patient.
The titanium framework that will attach the teeth to the implants is designed on the computer.
CAD design allows precise input of the implant and tissue position into the computer for milling a strong one-piece framework.
The openings in the prosthesis align exactly with the implant position.
Since a patient who is missing all of their teeth has typically lost gum and bone in large amounts, the missing teeth, gum and bone structure are replaced with one prosthetic device5Here you can see where the "hybrid" prosthesis attaches to the implants.
The Dentist can then attach the prosthesis to the implants with four screws and fill the openings with a tooth colored filling material.
This attachment in the lower jaw solves the major problems associated with a lower denture. The new upper denture is made along with the lower implant prosthesis.
