What is the All-on-4 dental method?
Dental bridge on 4 implants (All-on-4) is the method in which toothless people, regardless whether on the upper or the lower jaw (possibly both), receive a dental prosthetic device (dental bridge) which is fixed to four (4) dental implants.
The procedure is preceded by a detailed 3D diagnostics in order to determine bone density and thickness and to plan in detail the exact positions to which the implants will be fitted. The All-on-4 method is based on the digital planning of implant surgery and starts with implant placement in the planned positions or with the creation of surgical patterns.
In just one day and one visit, you will have 4 dental implants installed in your jaw. The implantation of one implant (Nobel Biocare or Bego) takes about 15 minutes, which means that the first visit, that is, the entire procedure – which includes eventual tooth extraction, the installation of 4 implants, anesthesia, and a doctor’s consultations with the patient – will take approximately 2 hours. The front 2 implants are positioned perpendicular to the jaw and the last two at an angle of 35 to a maximum of 45 degrees. Therefore, this special implantation technique allows the implantation even for people who do not have sufficient bone volume for classic implantation.
That same day a few hours later, or a day later – depending on the overall condition of the oral cavity – temporary teeth are prepared and attached to the dental implants that are already installed. Temporary teeth are generally temporary dentures that are worn for a period of time until the dental implant is integrated into the bone, with normal chewing functions already possible on the same day.
The All-on-4 procedure ends completely after three to four months, when the process of osteointegration (the period of bone healing and adaptation to dental implants) has passed. The stability of the implants is checked, and dental imprints are taken in order to make the final prosthetic work in our dental laboratory.
After the placement of the fixed prosthetic work (dental bridge) on implants, the entire procedure is complete.
Why should you visit an oral surgeon in case there are problems?
The oral surgeon will be able to use detailed 3D CT diagnostics and determine if you are a candidate for the All-on-4 dental method. Oral surgery, in every procedure, includes good and detailed diagnostics as the first step, as well as directions for the patient so the procedure will go as smoothly as possible. Considering that it is a major surgical procedure, it is important to choose a surgeon with experience, who will commit to planning the operation and make an initial prosthetic-surgical plan for the implant procedure. Our oral surgery specialist, Filip Štimac, dr.med.dent., implants the highest quality Nobel Biocare implants or Bego implants using the All-on-4 treatment concept on a daily basis, thereby providing you with full confidence about the procedure and ensuring a procedure with maximum safety for the patient.

Results of the procedure
The All-on-4 dental method has shown excellent results in dentistry for people who lost all their teeth in a jaw bone. This fixed solution is also possible for people who have one or more remaining teeth which are scheduled to be pulled or for those with low bone volume who wish to avoid full dental prostheses. This is considered to be a quicker and more painless solution for toothless jaws and enables the permanent return of the chewing function. The procedure is performed using the latest approach in implant placement procedures that does not require stitches, pain, swelling, and is harmless to the organism. The prosthesis, or the placement of the dental bridge, enables a natural look of the new teeth, perfect stability and functionality, and a very high degree of oral hygiene. Apart from good functionality, the All-on-4 dental method also ensures a very nice and regular row of teeth. The new teeth allow for simple oral hygiene, and the chewing feeling is like with natural teeth.
