This presentation will introduce the All-on-4 solution for full-arch immediate function with hybrid restorations as a “patientcentered approach” that provides numerous benefits for patients suffering from complete edentulism and terminal dentition, including immediate function and comfort, unrivaled esthetic dental and facial enhancements, and unsurpassed quality-of-life improvements. Important case selection criteria and diagnostically driven treatment-planning concepts for avoiding complications will be reviewed. Detailed clinical case presentations will help participants distinguish between straightforward, advanced, and complex All-on-4 case types based on patient expectations, location, quality and volume of bone available to support implants, position of the maxillary sinus, location and path of the inferior alveolar and mental nerves, presence of localized bone defects or distant bone mass, and occlusal-biomechanical requirements for success in individual cases. Moreover, the multifaceted surgical and prosthodontic treatment protocols required for successful implementation of the All-on-4 treatment concept will be elucidated. Finally, the use of the All-on-4 solution for management and/or rescue of failed conventional dental reconstructions and implant restorations supported by axially positioned implants will demonstrate the expanded applications of this highly beneficial treatment concept.
