The ALL-ON-4 technique is performed in two ways:
- ALL-ON-4 without surgery: involves the use of a surgical guide produced overseas; inserting the implants (without having to open the gum with a surgical knife); applying a temporary acrylic bridge which is screwed to the implants in one hour – TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR.
- ALL-ON-4 with surgery: involves opening the gums (and if applicable, extracting teeth), inserting the implants and applying a temporary acrylic bridge which is screwed onto the implants the same day – TEETH-IN-A-DAY.
ALL-ON-4 is a very advanced dental technique which only a small number of dentists and advanced clinics can perform. The technique requires extensive experience with implants and high-level dental labs. It is worth noting that the procedure has a 98% success rate worldwide (based on data during the 16 years that the ALL-ON-4 technique has existed).
Dr Fadi Khoury studied ALL-ON-4 at the Medical Center of Dr Paulo Malo from Lisbon, Portugal, and currently performs the majority of his implants using this breakthrough technique.
