The All-on-4 technique (also sometimes called ‘teeth-in-a-day’ or ‘same-day-smile’) is a brilliantly simple approach to replacing a full denture, or most of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. The technique usually uses four, but sometimes five or six implants to support a fixed bridge replacing 10-12 teeth.
The implants are often placed at the same time as failing teeth are removed. In our practice in conjunction with Dawood and Tanner this is straightforward, routine, and predictable, even for older patients or for patients with very little bone. We have been performing treatment of this kind for over 10 years.
