All-on-4® (Nobel Biocare), Teeth in a Day, Teeth in an Hour are same-day denture procedures for implant retained dentures that treat the entire upper and/or lower set of teeth. The procedure is best for patients with significant tooth loss or decay and for people whose bone loss in the jaw area prevents them from getting traditional dental implants.
All on 4 Dental Implants in Avondale
All on Four dental implants support a temporary fixed denture. The denture is placed on the day of surgery immediately after the implants.
All-on-Six is a term for using more implants than the standard All-on-Four. The exact number of dental implants required can vary from patient-to-patient based on individual dental health and the supporting jawbone structure.
