Home /All-on-4® Implant Procedure, Fix-on-6® and Dr. Chin’s Hybrid Dental Implant System

What is All-on-4® all about? All-on-4, is a fixed detachable way to replace dentures, failing teeth or failing crown and bridge work.  It is popular because the goal is to have fixed teeth in I day, a big security issue for many patients, especially women. What are the UPSIDES/POSITIVES (+) of the All-on -4® procedure?
  • Goal to have fixed teeth with 1 surgery visit
  • Cosmetic enhancement opportunity
  • Implants help to prevent bone loss due to atrophy
  • Immediate function to eat and chew right away.
  • Immediate cosmetic makeover
  • Better self – confidence and quality of life
  • New smile in a day
  • Potential to last a life time
  • Gives ability to eat all sorts of foods
  • An arch of teeth on only 4 implants
  • Teeth are fixed, so very secure, but detachable, so removable to repair things
  • A means to getting rid of your denture!!!
What are downsides/negatives (-) to All-on-4®?
  • Retained by screws which can break or loosen, which does happen.
  • Must cut away a large portion of the front part of your jaw to make room for milled bar to strengthen your artificial teeth. So it is in fact an invasive procedure.
  • Lose the natural feel of your gums, since a large portion of your front jaw is cut away to make room for the prosthesis.
  • Goal is to fit all teeth on 4 implants, but reality is that many times during the surgery, the surgeon may find that it is best to add additional implants, due to less than optimal bone. It should really be called All-on-4 plus, as it may be 5, 6 implants, etc.  Look on the internet and you will see lots of pictures of cases with 5, 6, 7 implants, not just 4.  It is really dictated by your available bone.
  • Not all All-on-4 cases can be or should be fixed at the surgery visit, if the implant/bone situation is not as stable as we would like, hence some cases should be not attached and just covered with denture for best healing success.
  • The goal is 1 single surgery, but sometimes requires a second surgery for best outcome.
Summary : All-on-4® is a state of the art procedure offering a great many benefits for patients who want to get rid of their dentures, failing crowns or ailing teeth.
