All-on-4

All-on-4™… and More!

Drs. Levine and Fava have changed the lives of so many patients with the revolutionary All-on-4™ treatment option. Designed to last a lifetime, All-on-4™ is a cost-effective, fixed dental implant solution used to replace failing teeth, missing teeth or dentures. The examples presented in this photo gallery provide a glimpse of several of the complex cases that the Center has handled in recent years.

Case Study #1: Rita

View Full Case Study

Chief Concern: Rita dealt with an ill-fitting full upper denture and a problematic, lower patient-removable implant bridge.

Treatment Received: We removed her four lower dental implants (minimally-traumatic and Piezosurgery® assisted) and immediate placed four dental implants using the AO4® concept. A fixed screw-retained provisional was placed within 24 hours and went to completion with a screw-retained acrylic hybrid (doctor-removable bridge) three months later. A new full upper denture was simultaneously made that supported Rita’s smile and is extremely retentive against her fixed lower AO4® case. An acrylic night guard appliance is used daily to protect her investment.

Case Study #6: Bronni

View Full Case Study

Chief Concern: Seventy-year-old Bronni was referred to us by her sister, a patient of ours for many years, who had completed a “SameDay Smile® with us in her upper jaw. Bronni’s teeth were loose as a result of advanced periodontal disease. She had difficulty chewing and was overall very unhappy with her smile. She wanted to obtain a beautiful smile like her sister—a healthy set of teeth that not only looked great but functioned great as well.

Treatment Received: We removed all of Bronni’s remaining teeth in both jaws in one surgical visit. Five implants were placed in her upper jaw and four in her lower jaw using the popular All-on-4™ concept. Her fixed provisional restorations were inserted the next day and her final case was completed in three months. A night guard appliance protects her wonderful new smile.

Case Study #9: Tony

View Full Case Study

Chief Concern: Tony came in with failed teeth under a lower partial denture due to severe dental decay. He was unable to enjoy eating or being in social situations. Tony desired a permanent dental solution for his problem. He’d been treated three years prior at the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Implants and Periodontics with a fixed dental implant bridge in his upper left arch which replaced a failed crown and bridge— also due to dental decay.

Treatment Received: In one surgical visit, Tony’s remaining lower teeth were removed and six dental implants were placed using the All-on-4™ concept. A fixed transitional prosthesis was placed in 24 hours and Tony’s mouth was completed with his final prosthesis three months later. He had no post-treatment discomfort. See Tony discuss his All-on-Four procedure here.

Case Study #10: Diane S.

View Full Case Study

Chief Concern: An over sixty-year-old patient presented with an inability to chew properly due to failing lower natural teeth with severe dental decay due to medication-induced xerostomia (dry mouth) and an inability to wear poorly fitting partial denture. Significant bone atrophy had occurred on both lower edentulous ridges where she had been missing teeth for many years. She elected to proceed with the AO4 treatment approach for a permanent tooth solution in her lower jaw and a new, full upper denture.

Treatment Received: In one surgical visit Dr. Levine removed all of her lower teeth with immediate placement of four dental implants using the All-on-4 concept. A permanent lower screw-retained provisional bridge was fabricated by the dental lab team and inserted the next day by her restorative dentist. Her case was completed three months later with a new, full upper denture, a permanent, lower fixed acrylic hybrid bridge and a night guard appliance to protect her investment. By tipping the distal implants using the AO4 concept it enabled the team to fabricate a fixed bridge with an adequate number of teeth to function and digest her food properly.

Case Study #11: Pat

View Full Case Study

Chief Concern: Sixty-two-year-old Pat was very unhappy with her smile and inability to chew properly. She had generalized severe periodontitis as well as generalized severe dental caries (cavities).
Treatment Received: In two surgical visits, all of Pat’s upper and lower jaw teeth were removed and four immediately loaded lower implants were placed for SameDay Smile® with bone grafting of the upper extraction sites for ridge preservation. A new full upper denture was placed immediately with a transitional, fixed screw-retained hybrid restoration in her lower jaw. After four months of healing, eight implants were then placed in her upper jaw with site-specific sinus lifts with bone grafting. Pat’s lower final restoration was a wrapped acrylic fixed hybrid with a titanium framework. The upper was restored as a zirconia-reinforced fixed hybrid. Now Pat uses a night guard to protect her beautiful new smile!

Case Study #15: Candace

View Full Case Study

Chief Concern: 65-year-old (non-smoker) female came to our practice to request a third opinion regarding the ideal treatment for her failing dentures, re-incurring cavities (resulting from medically-induced dry mouth, and acute chronic periodontitis). Her main priorities were to achieve a permanent solution which would provide better comfort and a more esthetically pleasing smile.

Treatment Received: In one surgically-coordinated visit with Dr. Robert Levine and prosthodontist Dr. Harry Randel, all remaining teeth were extracted. Significant vertical ridge height reduction was then completed to provide the necessary prosthetic room for a hybrid restoration. Five dental implants were placed in the upper jaw, and four implants were placed in the lower jaw. The following day, a screw-retained metal-reinforced fixed provisional prosthesis was put in place. In three months, after full bone healing was confirmed, permanent screw-retained restorations were put in place.
