All-On-4® Treatment Concept
What is the All-on-4® treatment concept?
The All-on-4® treatment concept is a permanent solution for those missing or who will be missing an entire arch of teeth. Affordable and time-efficient, less or no bone grafting is required and the process provides patients with a fixed full-arch provisional prosthesis the same day of surgery. The treatment has been around for over 20 years, during which time hundreds of thousands of patients have been treated with the concept using Nobel Biocare® implants.
98% of Patients that Received the Treatment would Recommend the All-on-4® Treatment Concept
In the past, patients who were missing many teeth had only one option for replacement: dentures. While dentures can be an important part of care for some patients, they can also cause embarrassment, hassle and nutritional deficiencies. These days, we have a much better way: With the All-on-4® treatment concept, we are able to give patients a fixed, full-arch prosthesis that is attached to four or more implants the same day of surgery. Patients can eat and enjoy food just like they used to – an instant improvement in their quality of life.
Benefits of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept

- 4 or more implants per arch
- Less or no bone grafting
- Immediate function with a fixed provisional bridge
- Shorter treatment time overall when compared with traditional implants
- Lower cost
How is the All-on-4® treatment concept different from dentures?
Dentures are removable. They must be removed daily for cleaning and replaced or reshaped regularly. By contrast, the All-on-4® treatment concept is a stationary solution that allows patients to eat, smile and laugh with little restriction.
How does the All-on-4® treatment concept work?
With the All-on-4® treatment concept, four or more dental implants are placed in the jaw and a fixed (provisional) full-arch prosthesis is attached to those implants the same day. Sometimes, tilting of the back implants eliminates the need for bone grafting, which reduces healing and overall treatment time when compared with other implant methods.
