The All-on-4® graftless treatment concept provides an advantageous solution for delivery of full arch immediate load hybrid prosthesis for patients suffering from failing dentition. The biomechanical basis and clinical success of the All-on-4® treatment concept in both maxillary and mandibular arches has been validated by numerous scientific and clinical publications in dental literature. Nevertheless, in order to successfully implement the All-on-4® treatment concept, clinicians must have a detailed understanding of the indications, contraindications and specific risk factors for complications. This presentation will discuss science and the clinical treatment planning concepts used when considering tilted vs. the Zygoma implant by evaluation of the residual alveolar bone volume.
Dr. Anthony Sclar graduated from the University of Florida College of Dentistry and subsequently completed an anesthesiology residency at the Miami V.A. Hospital, OMFS residency in the department of general surgery, University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Hospital and additional general surgery training at Central Medical Center, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. In practice since 1989, Dr. Sclar founded the Empowered Implant Dentistry Learning Center which hosts the highly regarded Master's Series of Advanced Implant Dentistry Immersion Courses. He is a Diplomat of the ABOMS, an adjunct OMFS professor at Nova Southeastern University and an international speaker who openly shares his knowledge and vast clinical experience in implant esthetics, immediate implant function, periodontal plastic surgery, oral tissue engineering and management of implant complications. Dr. Sclar has published numerous journal articles, textbook chapters and a Hallmark, multi-language textbook: Soft Tissue and Esthetic Considerations in Implant Therapy (Quintessence 2003). He is a reviewer for IJOMI, IJPRD and Clinical Advances in Periodontics and previously served on the JOMS editorial board.
