All-On-Four Implant Protocol - Fad or Phenomena

Description:
The All-on-Four protocol uses fewer implants, generally four or five, that are placed at mechanical inclinations to maximize support in the fabrication of fixed implant supported prosthetics in fully edentulous patients. The use of angled implant placement allows the clinician to avoid encroachment of anatomic structures such as the sinus, nasal floor or mandibular canal that may make vertical placement difficult or impossible without significant grafting of deficient sites. This webinar with Dr. George Duello and Dr. Maurice Salma will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.

That is it, simple, and clear !

Dr. Pate, The malleable guide is available through Nobel Biocare. Dr. Duello

Dr. Murphy, Both arches were included but the majority of the implants were not tilted. Dr. Duello

Great Video course. When Dr. Branmark placed all on four 10mm implants in his patients did that include the upper arch or just the lower arch. smiledds@aol.com Dr. Murphy

Dr Duello,

What ce do you recommend to learn more about this specific protocol. Also, where can I purchase the pilot hole malleable implant guide you featured on this video.

Thanks

Dr Pate

To Webinar Attendees, Someone asked what to you do if you have an implant failure under an All-on-Four. Remove the prosthesis, remove the implant, graft-delayed implant placement, and keep the prosthesis on the remaining three implants until the new implant has healed. Then you have two choices--remake the entire prosthesis or section the prosthesis where the previous implant has failed and now healed, section the bar and prosthesis, argon laser weld a new section to fit the new implant and replace the fixed All-on-Four prosthesis on the implants. If any one has any other thoughts I would be glad to review them. Dr. Duello

Dear Dr. Smith, I agree with your clinical observations. This is why good diagnosis, adequate alveoloplasty, and excellent laboratory support is necessary to attempt to achieve a prosthesis the has convex or flat anatomy on the intaglio surface so that oral hygiene is possible. However, I also find that overdenture prosthesis can be problematic with gingival hyperplasia under bars that many times leads to psuedo pocketing around abutments/implants. Occasionally I have had patient who can't seat their overdenture due to tissue impingments. I think all prosthesis require constant observation/monitoring with appropriate intervention when tissue problems arise. Thank you for your comments. Dr. Duello

Dear Dr. Kozy, I don't have any cases over 6 years old that meet the definition of "All-On-Four" that was discussed in the webinar on DentalXP as I started using the Malo technique in 2005. However, I have numerous other cases using four implants in the maxilla and mandible. Most of these cases on overdentures with bar and various attachments. As I stated in the webinar, I have modified my philosophy and now use All-on-Four to provide patients with a fixed prosthetic treatment. I hope this answers your question.

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients Premium Member Content

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients
This presentation aims to bring some possibilities in the treatment of edentulous patients with a severe atrophic maxilla. The major problem is that the absence of an appropriate bone bed, will compromise any approach with bone grafts and substitutes, as well as involving a greater morbidity and treatment time. In this way the oral rehabilitation with zygomatic implants is a current need for many patients, which will require a scientific knowledge of the dental care professional. Through this slide show and video demonstration you will be able to recognize and diagnose cases recommended for the therapy with zygomatic implants and its possible configurations supporting an oral rehabilitation.

Facial Development, Continuous Tooth Eruption, and Mesial Drift as Compromising Factors for Implant Placement
The replacement of teeth lost by children because of trauma can be an important indication for early implant therapy. Osseointegrated dental implants, like ankylosed teeth, alter position as growth-related changes occur within the jawbones (displacement, remodeling, mesial drift). Facial growth of the child and even of the adolescent, as well as the continuous eruption of the adjacent anterior teeth, create significant risk of a less favorable esthetic and/or functional outcome. For patients with…

Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes and Soft Tissue Manipulation
As osseointegration of endosseous dental implants has become predictable and well-documented, the emphasis in dental- implant treatment has shifted from functional concerns to the achievement of long-term aesthetic results. An adequate alveolar bone base is the prerequisite for functional and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft-tissue architecture. This is true for both fixed partial denture (FPD) pontic sites and dental implant sites. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone…

Does residual cement around implant-supported restorations cause peri-implant disease? A retrospective case analysis

Does residual cement around implant-supported restorations cause peri-implant disease? A retrospective case analysis
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between patients with a history of periodontitis and development of cement-related peri-implant disease. Seventy-seven patients with 129 implants for this retrospective analysis were selected from completed implant cases that were scheduled for regular maintenance or had experienced mechanical or biological complications between years 2006 and 2011 in private practice. Implants with extracoronal residual cement and implants without cement remnants were analyzed.
