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.

The AGE Approach: A Combination Protocol for Hard and Soft Tissue Augmentation in Complex Cases
Although new restorative materials have improved predictability and outcomes, hard and soft tissue management plays a fundamental role when working in aesthetic areas. To achieve ideal results, preservation of the natural hard and soft tissue architecture is the primary clinical objective. This new proposed AGE protocol illustrates the importance of hard and soft tissue management when working in esthetic and highly compromised areas. This protocol and schematic approach was developed to help the surgical practitioner visualize and divide the problem into a predictable step-by-step workflow.

Bone Reconstruction: A New Algorithm for the Implantologist
Bone augmentation is often required to place an adequate number of dental implants in ideal positions for prosthetic support. In addition to biomechanical demands bone augmentation can also provide proper ridge contour for improved esthetic outcomes. Disadvantages of bone augmentation techniques include increase morbidity, surgical time, costs and treatment length. As such a trend has develop towards treatment approaches that avoid bone grafting including shorter and narrower implants, angled implants and/or fewer implants for prosthetic support. This presentation will look at various bone augmentation techniques, methods to minimize the morbidity of bone grafting and guide clinicians on implant rehabilitation with grafting versus non-grafting approaches.

Digital Patient Specific Implant Abutment Options for Optimum Periodontal and Esthetic Results
The evolution of Implant Therapy is at the point of uncompromised clinical results when available technologies are appropriately applied. The restorative clinician working in concert with their laboratory can successfully achieve extraordinary results on a routine basis. The various abutment materials and design parameters will be illustrated by review of clinical / laboratory case studies. Restorative material options will be discussed with a focus on optimum long term clinical performance. New long term provisional technology will also be explored. Cementable and screw retained indications and contra-indications will be reviewed as well as approaches to “problem case” solutions.

Instrumentation for Modern Day Implant Surgery
Public awareness of the aesthetic possibilities through the replacement of missing or nonsalvageable teeth has been elevated with advances in dental implant therapy and related hard and soft tissue regenerative therapies. This has led to an increase in the fabrication of fixed prostheses supported by either natural teeth, dental implants, or removable prostheses anchored by implants rather than conventional tissue- or tooth-supported partial dentures.

Subclassification and Clinical Management of Extraction Sockets with Labial Dentoalveolar Dehiscence Defects
Immediate implant therapy involving implants placed into intact Type 1 extraction sockets has become a consistent clinical technique. The classification of Type 2 extraction sockets, where the mucosal tissues are present but there is a midfacial osseous dehiscence defect, has been described according to the extent of the buccal bone plate absence. The literature has offered different techniques in the treatment of Type 2 sockets; however, the extent of the defect has never been defined or delineated.
