All-on-4 Dental Implants in Turkey

For individuals who have lost all of their upper or lower teeth, All-on-4 dental implants are viewed as a miraculous treatment. Multiple missing teeth can be treated with dental implants using this method. As they include more operations and fixing multiple teeth, All-on-4 dental implants are more expensive than single dental implants. Because of this, patients choose to visit other countries for their dental implants because they are more convenient and inexpensive. You can read our articles to learn more in-depth information about how this treatment is carried out in Turkey.

What Are “All-on-4” Dental Implants?

All-on-4 dental implant treatment, also known as full mouth dental implants, is a type of dental implant treatment that aims to help people who are missing all their upper or lower teeth. The name of the technique refers to the fact that only four metal implants are used to support an entire line of prostheses. While normally it is necessary to have one implant per each missing tooth, with All-on-4 dental implant treatment just four implants are used to fix all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. Thus, the patient does not need to get more than 10 implants instead four implants are enough. In case the patient is missing all teeth on both upper and lower jaw, only 8 implants are necessary.

While four implants are usually enough, All-on-6 and All-on-8 dental implant treatments can also be recommended depending on the needs of patients.

The Stages of All-on-4 Dental Implants

  1. First, the patient is required to undergo a thorough medical checkup at the clinic using cutting-edge diagnostic techniques. If it is decided that the patient is suitable for All-on-4 implant treatment, you and your dentist discuss the best treatment options.
  2. Computerized tomography is used to measure the patient’s dental structure. 3D modeling is used to calculate the best size, shape, and placement of the implants and prostheses.  Necessary preparations are made by dental treatment professionals.
  3. On the operation day, the patient is given a local anesthetic before the surgery.
  4. Four metal screws are inserted into the patient’s jaw with great care to placement to secure the implants in place. This operation lasts approximately 1-2 hours. Abutments are placed on top of the roots that have been inserted. The patient is given a temporary prosthesis to use until the following appointment.
  5. The operation is finished. An appointment is set up for the patient for three months from now.
  6. The patient’s temporary prosthesis is taken off after three months which is the required time for the gums and jawbone to heal.
  7. New measurements are taken for the production of permanent prostheses.
  8. In the final dentist visit, the patient is fitted with prostheses that are appropriate for the measurements acquired, and the process comes to an end.

During the recovery period between operations, the jawbone grows around the implants which makes the implants stronger and more durable. This process is called osseointegration.

Under local anesthesia, it is a fairly painless operation and the patient will be able to continue speaking and eating comfortably after the treatment.
