All-on-4 dental Implant in Cancun is a dental treatment technique that was invented by Dr Paolo Malo and Nobel BioCare,
four dental implants to support a full fixed bridge
the use of angulated implants in the back to overcome bony deficiencies or anatomical structures
The concept itself of the total rehabilitation of a full set of teeth supported by as few as four Implants. However, it was the angulation of the back implants that led to today's All-on-4, and has been trialed by numerous clinicians simultaneously in the United States, Sweden, Portugal, and South America in the 1990s. The technique evolved when in an attempt to avoid certain anatomical limitations typically seen in the back of the upper and lower jaws have, clinicians successfully avoided bone-deficient areas with the use of angulated implants. Anatomical limitations are more prevalent in patients with full dentures, and once the back implants are placed at an angle there is often only enough room left for two more implants in the front. This has led to the use of only four fixtures to support a full set of teeth.
The benefits of All-on-4 implants include:
Shorter installation times than other implants
Prevents further bone loss
Decreases the need for a bone graft
The ALL ON 4 dental Implant technique allows a complete fixed prosthesis with only 4 dental implants, which means less aggressive and faster more economical oral rehabilitations performed here in Cancun.
What is the ALL ON 4
The tilting of the two posterior implants improves contact between bone and implant. Meaning even with minimum bone density / volume it is viable, with the inclination (tilt) of the maxillary implants allows better anchorage in the anterior bone (back)
A detailed clinical examination see if there are any other factors that may come into play when placing your implants as well as Impressions to fabricate the arch. This includes CT scans, which are 3D pictures, of the jawbone. The scans include the positions of the replacement teeth, while also giving us critical information about where the bone sinuses and nerves are located for the implants.This Involves creating a computer simulation of the implants with our computer software and the doctor explaining what is needed and what is noted on these scans, digitally position dental implants into the jawbone at the appropriate location to give you the most support from your replacement teeth.
The day of surgery and procedure. During the procedure, we will provide you with anesthesia or IV Sedation if requested and are a candidate and then place the implants directly into your jawbone to secure your new set of teeth in place.
All-on-4 Benefits in Cancun
More cost-effective than full-set implants: fewer implants and only a single procedure
More comfortable and convenient than dentures
Fast – the procedure of extracting teeth, placing implants, and placing crowns done in a single visit
Greatly reduces the need for bone grafting
Long lasting (if cared for properly)
All-on-4 Dental Implants compared to conventional dentures?
They are permanent teeth that look and feel like natural teeth
They are stable, allowing you to bite with increased force
No movement less friction and irritation
Implants in the jaw stimulates the bone, preventing further bone reabsorption
Non removable no adhesives
Do They always use four implants?
Most of the time, 4 implants are used. If the dental specialists here in Cancun find it to be necessary after reviewing Scans they will recommend using 6 or 8 implants to ensure the strength and longevity of your new teeth.
