All-on-4 Dental Implants

The "All-on-4" (also known as "All-on-6" or "All-on-8" if more than 4 dental implants are used) is a procedure where a full arch of 10-14 teeth are placed on 4 or more dental implants for support. All major dental implant manufacturers such as Nobel Biocare, Straumann and Dentsply have moved to support this type of dental treatment, due to its increasing popularity as an alternative to removable dentures (false teeth)

Choosing a suitable clinic for: "All-on-4"

Choosing a suitable dental clinic for the "All-on-4" procedure starts with a correct dental diagnostics usually involving an OPG x-ray or CT-scan supported by the experience of a dental implant surgeon (not a regular dentist) and their specialised team. "All-on-4" surgery should be performed in a dental implant clinic using proven, high-grade dental implants, under a microscope, loupes, or using digital guided surgery.

As "All-on-4" surgery is classified as outpatient surgery, it is also worthwhile looking at the level of comfort and extra services provided in your chosen dental implant clinic. This is reflected in the GCR "services" score of each particular clinic.

Reported patient feedback from patients who have had dental implants in your particular chosen dental implant clinic is worth looking at. This can include case studies or video testimonials, and online reviews. This is reflected in the GCR "feedback" score of each particular clinic.
