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.

    I am on vacation in Israel. Had a fall that resulted in an open wound on my forehead, and a fractured rib(very small crack). The doctors were very professional, thorough and knowledgable. We arrived at a quite time and we're done quickly with treatment that far exceeded expectations. Upon departure i saw how busy it had become and i can definitely see how this might have resulted in rather long periods for treatment. Overall great experience for a traveller.
