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.

    일산서구 권역에 있다는 점이 거짓말 안 보태고 정말 유일한 장점인 병원.

    발뼈 완전골절도 아니고 부분적으로 금간 수준에 철심 박아야 일상생활 가능하다던 병원. 그 길로 수술 안 받고 집으로 돌아와서 3주 딱 쉬고 하던 일 다시 함. 3년이 지난 지금 7일에 6일꼴로 평균 2만보씩 걷고 계단 오르는데도 후유증 없음. 기승전결이 입원진단경고수술꼴인 병원임. 못 걷고 통증생길거라던 으사양반 지금도 근무중인지 모르겠다

    진짜 의사들 실력이 의심스러운 병원이다. 환자를 돈으로만 본다. 차라리 그돈 내고 진료받느니 다른 병원가서 진료받겠다.
    엑스레이 찌고 ct찍고 mri 또 찍고 결국 아무 증상 없음 어이 없어~~아무증상 없는데 왜 계속찍냐고 증상 나올때까지 찍는건가? 그래도 혹시 모르니 입원하라고~~에휴~~절대 안간다~~
