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.

Spinal Disc Herniation Treatment+ More
Spinal discs are connected to the vertebrae in the spine, separating each of the vertebrae and acting as a cushion to absorb shock and protect the vertebrae and nerves. The discs have a soft interior filled with a gel-like fluid, which is covered with a harder exterior. A herniated disc, also known as a slipped disc, occurs when the disc's exterior becomes damaged which enables the soft interior to push its way out of the disc. This applies pressure on the nerves and spinal cord, which can cause pain in the back, neck, legs, arms, or buttocks.

Verified Review This review was provided by a patient that booked using the MEDIGO platform. It was submitted through our internal review system and is 100% genuine
The reception staff were helpful and polite.
The consultation by Dr. Lukasz Ulatowski for otoplasty was professional. The doctor was very honest in discussing the risks, the benefits, and the risk of recurrence.
In my specific case, he advised me not to operate the soft tissue of the lobe. For this reason he reimbursed the deposit we had paid in advance.
Very, very correct.

Il professore ha rimarcato bene il rischio beneficio dell'operazione e molto onestamente anche il rischio di recidiva.
Nel nostro caso specifico ci ha consigliato di non operare i tessuti molli del lobo e per questo motivo ci ha fatto rimborsare interamente la percella della visita che avevamo pagato anticipatamente.
