ALL ON FOUR, WHAT IS THE NEWEST TECHNIQUE OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?

All on Four is one of the newest techniques in implantology that rehabilitates full arches in patients who have lost a large part of their teeth or who are willing to make a change in their entire mouth.

Many people come to our clinic to obtain information and, later, a budget that adapts to their needs with this treatment.

That is why our specialized team has decided to show what this technique consists of, its main advantages and disadvantages, and what the treatment is like.

All on four technique: What is it about?

It is a minimally invasive technique that is performed with state-of-the-art equipment and materials to solve the problems of the total absence of teeth. This dental surgery is carried out in a single day and replaces all the teeth in the upper and lower arch with a reduced number of implants.

Do you know…

The name ”All on four” is given to this treatment because it comprises of using four implants in each jaw. Sometimes, depending on each patient, more implants are needed, such as up to 6. In this case, it would be called an “All on six” treatment. It is clinically proven with 95% success that it is a safe and effective treatment for all people lacking dental bone.

The implants used are made of titanium, which is a very resistant and biocompatible material that can be integrated into the bone with very positive results and there is practically no type of rejection or allergy. The difference in this treatment lies in the inclination of two of the four implants.

Surgical process “All on four”

First of all, to carry out this treatment, the assistance of two very important people from the professional team of the dental clinic will be necessary: ​​dentist and hygienist. They will be in charge of applying anesthesia with conscious sedation to the patient.

Subsequently, the dental pieces will be extracted (if any) and the implants that will hold the prosthesis are placed. By placing the implant, it is possible to replace the natural root of the tooth. It is a painless process and highly recommended by our patients. After the surgery is completed, a provisional prosthesis is fitted until the implants have successfully healed.

In this way, the person who undergoes the All on four treatment returns home with a new smile in just 1 day. Later, when the implants are integrated into the bone (osseointegration), the provisional prosthesis is replaced by the definitive one.

For implant planning, Asensio Advanced Dentistry uses the NobelGuide software, with which it works to obtain a detailed diagnosis, how to identify the available bone, virtual placement, and prosthetic needs.

CORRECT DENTAL HYGIENE FOR SENSITIVE GUMS

After undergoing dental cleaning treatments, especially in deep dental cleanings, it will be normal for tooth sensitivity to increase. Over time, this feeling diminishes and you will find your teeth and gums much healthier than before.

Swollen, tender, or bleeding gums will gradually improve over time as long as you brush your teeth carefully and consistently. However, in most patients, the general discomfort due to dental cleaning disappears in a day or two.

Tooth sensitivity is more difficult to avoid on a day-to-day basis, especially when eating or drinking hot or cold foods, as well as biting and brushing your teeth.

HYGIENE TIPS FOR SENSITIVE GUMS

– Carry out a complete brushing of about 2-3 minutes to remove all the accumulated tartar with up and down and circular movements. The type of brush is important.

– Gently massage the gum with the brush while cleaning it.

– It is advisable to use a good quality soft toothbrush and brush gently, both teeth and gums, to avoid the accumulation of bacterial plaque. It is also recommended not to chew gum so that tartar does not accumulate on the gums.

– Use of irrigators and dental floss is recommended in patients with problematic gums since they manage to remove tartar from those corners that the brush cannot reach.

– Chlorhexidine mouthwashes are very beneficial in the hygiene of sensitive gums as it provides an aseptic action.

– In addition, we can combat gingivitis with food, reinforcing our diet with a good dose of vitamin C, which helps to repair damaged gum tissues.
