All-On-4® dental implants system is a fixed alternative to full dentures or implant supported dentures. With traditional full dentures, prosthese slip and slide easily. All-on-4 is screwed by your implantologists, so your prosheses will require a professional to remove and maintain its cleanliness.
With the All-on-4 concept, all missing teeth on a jaw is replaced by four dental implants. The back 2 implants are tilted at 45 degrees. Tilting the posterior implants maximizes the use of front anterior bone. It helps overcome bone loss deficiencies that commonly occurs at your posterior jaw regions that may need bone grafts should they be placed in a straight 90 degrees angle.
What is the Difference between All-on-4 and ProArch?
All-On-4® treatment concept provides edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous patients with an efficeint restoration using four implants to support an immediately delivered full-arch fixed hybrid denture or hybrid bridge. The concept is especially beneficial to individuals who has always had teeth and needs to transition tramatically or suddenly to having no teeth. The original implant system for the immediate fixed dentures treatment is by Nobel Biocare that coined the term All-on-4 dental implant procedure. The original concept involves placement of 4 implant posts.
ProArch dental implants by Straumann uses the same concept on immediacy implants with hybrid dentures. However, Pro arch does not advocate the need to tilt posterior implants and it does not limit itself to 4 implants on each jaw. Instead, the Pro arch concept provides immedicay premium component tools (including titled abutments), SLActive surface and bone level BLX implants, biomaterial membranes to ensure implants can securely integrate as safely and as quickly as possible for the instant placement of prostheses.
