All-On-4 Concept: 12 teeth supported by 4 to 6 Implants
IMPLANT DIRECT's "All-Over-4" treatment concept utilizes 4 Implants to support a fixed screw-retained implant appliance. All-Over-4 and Teeth-in-1 Day are registered trademarks of Implant Direct Sybron International. A similar treatment option is NOBEL BIOCARE's "All-On-4" and "Teeth-in-A-Day" which are registered trademarks of Nobel Biocare. Another similar concept, "All-in-one" (a full Zirconium Implant Arch), is a registered trademark of Quadrant Dental. Another example is the "PRETTEAU Dental Implant Bridge" (full contour Zirconia) from Tischler Dental Laboratory. As you can see, there are many options for screw-retained implant appliances in the marketplace.
These appliances are used for the total rehabilitation of the edentulous patient. We are now pleased to offer this innovative treatment option to our patients who request it. All trademarks are the property of their respective companies.

Structural Properties: The transformation toughened Zirconia has unique properties such as high fracture toughness and strength. Extensive laboratory studies confirmed the strength, superiority of zirconium-based restorations. Excellent material physical properties, biocompatibility, and superior aesthetics make ZIRCONIA a popular material among the contemporary all-ceramic material. Extensive in vitro and in vivo studies have confirmed high fracture resistance and its use in stress bearing areas. The five-year clinical follow-up studies that are in progress have shown a positive result at the end of first year."

PROF. PAULO MALO of the Malo Clinic, Spain
Prof. Malo pioneered the idea of total rehabilitation of the edentulous patient developed in the early 1990’s at the Malo Clinic in Spain, which allows for immediate function, full-arch Implant-Supported appliances. This treatment option can avoid the necessity for sinus grafting by utilizing angled implant placement in the posterior maxilla (upper jaw).This Implant Therapy option is now promoted by many Implant manufacturers.
"The placement of dental implants for single tooth restoration started with edentulous sites and has evolved to immediate extraction and placement of an implant in a single day. Immediate "loading" of single implants is a misnomer as single implants cannot truly be loaded without a high risk of failure. However, with full arch replacement there is now true multiple placement and immediate loading in a single day! This technique is gaining worldwide popularity as it is a true immediate (temporary) fixed prosthetic alternative to removable solutions. It is a predictable, esthetic and (cost-effective) solution, versus up to a dozen implants and grafts needed for a past traditional fixed solution to the edentulous arch." BioHorizons Canada.
DENTURES ON IMPLANTS: (Please see the "Terminology" Page)
If you’re tired of your current dentures moving around in your mouth, and think denture adhesive is bothersome, our denture replacement solution may be right for you. A fixed denture replacement solution consists of a dental implant bridge that is supported by four or more dental implants. By using dental implants to secure the dentures, the need for denture adhesive is no longer necessary. Because the dental implants function like the natural roots, the dentures will feel almost like your natural teeth. Ask our Dentists if you may be a candidate for a fixed (screw-retained) dental implant appliance to replace your conventional denture.
Since the above photos are x-rays, the acrylic teeth are just barely visible.
