Full-arch fixed implant bridges, often referred to as All-on-4, are becoming increasingly popular in the dental field. These bridges are typically supported by four to six dental implants, which are made from materials such as acrylic fused with titanium, monolithic zirconia, and porcelain stacked in a cobalt-chrome frame. The type of material used for All-on-4 implants can depend on the age of the patient. Zirconia is a more durable material, so if the patient is younger, it may be a better option as it will last longer and not need to be replaced as soon.
However, if the patient has lower bone density in their jaw, traditional implants may not be possible and an All-on-4 implant may be the best option. Performing an All-on-4 ceramic restoration requires a professional dentist who works with highly qualified dental technicians. This is because creating All-on-4 ceramic restorations is very complex and requires a great deal of skill.
