Clinical approaches to the All-on-4® treatment concept

Surgery day: three different surgical approaches

Key points

  • The type of surgical approach is defined in the treatment planning phase
  • Freehand surgery with full flap elevation allows full visualization of the surgical site and the bone
  • The fully guided surgical approach is flapless and is therefore less invasive
  • When alveolectomy is required a full flap surgery is the preferred choice
  • Evidence-based clinical data shows the average deviation from the treatment plan was significantly less when guided or navigated surgery is used
