All-on-4

+ More
  • The All-on-4 dental implant treatment was designed by Nobel Biocare, and is used to replace an entire upper or lower set of teeth. The procedure creates a permanent prosthesis by using four dental implants that act as an anchor for a bridge or overdenture of 12-to-14 teeth.

    The dentist performs or examines diagnostic tests (such as panoramic X-rays and a CT scan) to assess the patient's jaw bone density. These scans are then often followed up by computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (known as CAD/CAM) processes that plan the All-on-4 procedure and allow the dentist to precisely insert the dental implants into the jaw.

    Dr. Alejandro Freer and his team are very skilled. I urge all of those throughout the world who have had major dental problems like me to visit, trusting your mouth to this team.
    You will find they have skill and patience (necessary with me), not to mention an unusually good level of support.
    I'm glad to have met them and very happy with the work they have done.

    I highly recommend this clinic and team of professionals to any clients. Everyone there was very friendly and extra helpful to my every need. The procedure left me with brief discomfort but never any pain. I was never in doubt as to what the next step of the process was as each Doctor explained every detail in advance. A fantastic place to go for medical treatments.
