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.

Breast Reconstruction+ More
Breast reconstruction is a procedure to rebuild a breast which has been completely or partly removed. The most common reason for undergoing breast reconstruction surgery is for patients who have had breast cancer surgery (mastectomy or lumpectomy). In the US, breast cancer affects around 1 in 8 women.
The surgery is often performed at the same time as a mastectomy, however some patients may choose to wait a while before undergoing a breast reconstruction. Patients who are undergoing radiation therapy are advised to undergo breast reconstruction in stages, as they cannot undergo reconstruction whilst receiving radiation therapy, as this could damage the new breast.
There breast can be reconstructed either with breast implants or with flaps. Implants are made of silicon or saline and are an inserted under the chest muscle. Flaps are made up of tissue which is taken from another area of the body such as the buttocks or thighs, and are connected to the blood vessels on the chest. With a flap procedure, the shape and size of the breast will change in the first few months and once it has formed it's shape, nipple reconstruction may then be performed. Nipple reconstruction involves taking part of the nipple from the other breast and filling in the color by tattooing it to the nipple.
As there are a number of different surgical options for patients undergoing breast reconstruction, the time needed for the treatments vary considerably. As a guideline:
- Mastectomy with placement of a tissue expander - 1 to 2 weeks
- Mastectomy with latissimus dorsi flap - 2 to 3 weeks
- Mastectomy with pedicle TRAM flap - 6 to 8 weeks
- Mastectomy with abdominal free flap (free TRAM, DIEP or SIEA flap) - 4 to 6 weeks
- Mastectomy with GAP flap - 6 to 8 weeks
- Exchange tissue expander to implant - 1 week or less
- Exchange unilateral tissue expander and augment/reduce/lift opposite breast - 1 to 2 weeks
- Nipple areola reconstruction - 1 week or less
