Abstract

The All-on-4™ technique for dental implant placement has recently generated increased interest among many patients as a highly functional, aesthetic, cost-effective treatment alternative. The technique is a good option for patients who desire fixed, natural-looking dentition, yet are not willing to undergo sinus grafting or extensive bone augmentation. Computer-guided dental implantation is a revolutionary system in dentistry. The technology offers greater accuracy and precision than do free-hand techniques, and is therefore safer. The All-on-4 method combined with guided surgery does not demand high levels of surgical expertise. Furthermore, the procedure is less traumatic for the patient—the implant is placed on the best available bone—and the technique is associated with fewer post-operative complications. We present the case of a fully edentulous patient whose maxillary and mandibular dentition was restored using a fixed prosthesis and a guided, All-on-4 technique; the patient was followed up for 18 months after surgery.
