All on 4 dental implants - solution to restore the entire teeth

All on 4 implants technology is a solution to restore the entire teeth which lost with only 4 implant fixtures fixed into the jaw bone to raise the entire lost teeth at the upper side

The front two implant fixtures are implanted directly into the lower jaw bone and two implant fixtures inside are implanted with an at most 45 degrees angle. With the attachment of the abutment, 12 teeth on the jaw are restored thanks to the firm fulcrum

This is considered to be the most cost-effective solution for complete teeth lost due to the use of only 4 implants instead of 6-8 implants. This solution was proposed by Dr. Paulo Malo in 1998 and was proven to be effective. Hundreds of thousands of All on 4 cases have been successfully performed and reported to implant convention by many doctors around the world.
