All-on-4 Dental implants in Tunisia: The solution for the completely toothless

What are All-on-4 dental implants?

All-on-4 is a dental implant procedure that can replace all your upper and/or lower teeth with only four artificial roots instead of one implant for each tooth. This method of dental implants makes the procedure itself and the follow-up easier. Patients who replace their dentures with All-on-4 dental implants can care for their teeth as they would for natural teeth, by brushing and flossing. Unlike dentures, All-on-4 implants are permanent, so they stay in your mouth and attached to your gums. Traditional dental implants use one screw to anchor each individual tooth, but all-on-4 dental implants use only four screws to anchor all of your teeth. Using only four artificial roots instead of one per tooth makes the procedure itself less invasive. In addition, patients who were not candidates for dental implants because of insufficient bone density to support an implant may benefit from this option.

All-on-4s are typically supported by four to six dental implants and this procedure is considered the best treatment option for edentulous individuals.

The difference between removable dentures, All-on-4, and individual dental implants

Traditional removable dentures are a solution for the completely edentulous, but this solution has its drawbacks.  The loss of the roots for an edentulous person causes a bone loss that will induce discomfort when wearing dentures and will require regular adaptations.


This option involves placing four or more implants (All-on-four) in your jaw and attaching a permanent denture. Your denture is held in place by screws that secure it to the brackets. It does not touch the gum tissue, allowing you to clean under the denture without removing it. This denture will replace all your missing lower teeth and will not be removed except during maintenance visits. Although cleaning underneath your denture without removing it takes more time, many patients who want a permanent denture prefer this option. This is the most popular option for replacing all your lower and even upper teeth.

The last option is to have all your teeth individually replaced. And this method gives a result very similar to the appearance of your natural teeth. This option usually requires eight or more implants. Artificial roots will be placed and crowns for each missing tooth will be placed. Bone grafting is usually done to restore bone loss. Overall, this is the most expensive option because it requires the most implants and the fabrication of individual replacement teeth, however, it will give you the most natural look and feel of your teeth.

Traditional dentures fit poorly over the gums and can slip or even fall out. The All-on-4 Implants technique provides permanent dentures to avoid the discomfort and embarrassment of traditional appliances. With All-on-4 Implants, your dentist will place four dental implants in each arch and use these implants to permanently and comfortably attach your new permanent dentures.

Who is it for?

All-on-4 dental implants are very appropriate for anyone who is facing complete tooth loss in their upper or lower jaw, or in both jaws and wants to have a permanent set of good-looking teeth. All-on-4 implants offer people a chance to live a healthy lifestyle by replacing teeth with implants on removable dentures.

The ideal candidate for All-on-4 dental implants is someone who already has dentures or is missing several teeth and would prefer to find an alternative, more permanent method of replacing their teeth.

In addition, it is an ideal procedure for someone who does not have the bone density to support a full set of individual implants, the time to place individual implants or the budget to pay for them. The All-on-4 implant placement procedure is faster and more affordable.

This procedure is very well tolerated by most people and may be suitable for patients with osteoporosis or diabetes who may not be suitable for traditional dental implants.

The procedure for placing All-on-4 dental implants

An initial consultation with the dental surgeon is necessary to determine if you are suitable for All on 4 treatment. The dental surgeon will discuss the procedure in more detail with you and will need to know your medical history.

In general, the procedure takes about two hours and 30 minutes per arch.

The process of obtaining All-on-4 dental implants can be described in four steps:

The first step:

A detailed examination where we will review your records, existing conditions, whether you have dentures, what your facial structure needs, and any other factors that may come into play when placing your dental implants.

The second step:

The next step is to perform a 3D scan that will show your jaws, muscles and other facial structures in detail. This will allow the dentist to closely examine the condition of your jaws and assess the quality and quantity of bone available.

This particular treatment requires patients to have good bone density toward the front of the mouth, where bone naturally tends to be thicker and stronger, which is why the treatment can be so beneficial for patients who have lost significant amounts of bone over the years.

With the help of the CT scan, the dental surgeon will be able to accurately plan the position of each implant.

The third step:

This involves creating a computer simulation of the implants, which we digitally place in the jaw in the appropriate location to give you the most support from your replacement teeth. We can adjust the implants as needed and fabricate your new teeth for your needs.

The fourth step:

Finally, the most important step is the oral surgery. A surgical guide is produced prior to the insertion of the dental implants, allowing the doctor to accurately place the implants with minimal incisions. Once the implants are in place, a temporary prosthesis will be put in place so that you can eat and speak without fear of embarrassment and we take great care to ensure that they will look good.

After the dental implants have healed and integrated with your jaw, you can return to our dental office to be fitted for your permanent teeth.

One of the side effects of missing teeth is bone loss. When teeth are missing, the jawbone begins to deteriorate. Traditional dentures do nothing to stop or slow this deterioration, but dental implants provide the stimulation needed to help you maintain your jawbone. If you have been wearing dentures for some time, your jawbone has already begun to deteriorate. The advantage of the All-On-4 implant technique is that it places dental implants where the bone is strongest, reducing the need for bone grafting. 

All-on-4 dental implants are a very affordable solution for anyone who wants to replace their dentures with a fixed crown of teeth. Med Assistance Tunisia uses only the highest quality dental implants in progressive periodontics and implant dentistry.

Previously, several dental implants were needed to secure a full arch of teeth. With conventional dental implants, it is often necessary to use between 6 and 10 implants to support a full arch.

This can mean that the cost of treatment is out of reach for many. Conventional or traditional dental implant treatments also increase the likelihood of needing dental bone grafting before placing the implants. With All-on-4 dental implants, only four dental implants are needed to secure the full arch of the lower teeth, while six dental implants are typically needed to secure the full arch of the upper teeth.

The price of All-on-4 dental implants is much lower than individual implants. This solution is best suited for people who have lost all or most of their teeth.
