To understand this technique one should understand what a dental implant is? Conventionally for a full jaw replacement with dental implant patient had to undergo several surgeries. Sometimes it almost took 6 to 12 months of healing period with several bone augmentation procedures to obtain what is now possible in a day. The principals behind all on 4 implants are purely mechanical and mathematical, based on a very popular Pythagoras's theorem. a² + b² = c² very interestingly each of the jaw is simulated to have too such triangles.
The computer guided all on 4 dental implant placement is extremely safe, accurate and virtually painless. Further, it allows you to have fixed teeth with a beautiful smile in one day.
A CBCT Scan is done and the data is imported into advance implant placement software to plan and execute exact implant placement. Precise placement of tilted implants and abutments is planned with the help of this software. 3-D model printing of the treatment planning results in a surgical guide. This surgical guide enables the surgeon to execute precise and exact implant placement which makes everything possible in a day. Since so much of the time and effort is spent on treatment planning phase that actual appointment time for implant placement goes very quickly.
