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.

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations
We will discuss basic concept regarding immediate implant placement and guided bone regeneration procedure related to the esthetic zone before focusing on the soft tissue management. We will describe the prosthetic procedures which are performed before, during and after the surgical procedures. Provisional restorations, impression techniques, prosthetic profiles and restorative materials will be presented. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a check list that will guide the clinician developing a proper analysis and diagnosis for the successful esthetic result with implant supported restoration.

CBCT-Guided Implantology- Improving the Accuracy and Success of Tooth Replacement
The integration of cone beam technology and 3D imaging has advanced the practice of digital dentistry. CT-guided implant planning combined with the use of a Computer Guided Surgery (CGS) implant placement kit leads to increased precision, accuracy and efficiency of implant placement. To realize the full advantages of CT guided surgery, it is important to have a thorough understanding of software and workflow, as well as the specific components of the Guided Surgery kit and their use. This session will demonstrate how the merging of implant planning software, CAD/CAM technology and CGS is enabling surgeons and restorative dentists to leverage the benefits of digital dentistry

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping Premium Member Content

Predictable Implant Aesthetics Utilizing A Custom Fabricated Provisional Abutment & Impression Coping
Mastering the art of predictable implant aesthetics can be challenging. One of the most stressful areas for most dentists is the process of creating a beautiful provisional that will guide tissue and predictably communicate the aesthetic outcome for the final restoration in the aesthetic zone. Combining the use of a custom fabricated provisional abutment, provisional restoration and a custom fabricated impression coping many of the aesthetics challenges can be addressed. This information can then be communicated to the laboratory to ensure the most predictable aesthetic outcome possible. This program is designed to simplify and streamline the entire process of implant provisionalization and impression. This program will provide a systematic, step by step approach to tissue management, provisionalization and impression of implant cases.

Comprehensive Management of Implant Anchorage in the Multidisciplinary Patient
In recent years, dental implants have become an accepted method of replacing missing teeth. Today millions of implants are placed annually to rehabilitate and reestablish patients’ occlusions. However, in many of these individuals, the teeth may be in less than ideal position to accept the integration of single implants or groups of implants with the remaining teeth. Many of these patients could benefit from orthodontics to reposition malposed teeth to enhance the overall occlusal scheme. However,…

The Dual-Zone Therapeutic Concept of Managing Immediate Implant Placement and Provisional Restoration in Anterior Extraction Sockets

The Dual-Zone Therapeutic Concept of Managing Immediate Implant Placement and Provisional Restoration in Anterior Extraction Sockets
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described in this case enable practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device.
