All-on-4 is a treatment concept in which a full-arch dental prosthesis is completely supported by four dental implants. Dr. Nazarian expanded this concept to incorporate the use of six dental implants when possible. This helps to ensure the best possible bone health for patients.
The concept of placing six to eight dental implants provides a higher standard of care. Of course, the patient’s bone tissue conditions must permit the placement of six to eight implants.
The benefit for patients—enjoying the stability of dental implants while also enjoying a highly functional dental prosthesis. As such, the implants will keep the prosthesis firmly in place since implants act as the new roots. And once the implants are placed, the new prosthesis gets attached to the implants for a secure fit.
