All-on-4 (AO4) Dental Implants Clinical Residency Program
This is a 2-day clinical live residency that focuses on the daily work of the clinic. It is mainly hands-on and involves an all day live surgery as well as live rehabilitation with fixed prostheses.
All-On-4 is a dental implant surgery among the signature treatments by Nuffield Dental. Also known as teeth-in-a-day, it is especially suitable for patients who are missing multiple teeth in a row. A hassle-free experience, it uses just 4 to 6 dental implants on each arch to support the dental bridge and replace missing teeth – and achieve a healthier and lovelier smile.
Considered the stellar alternative to separate implants, All-On-4 requires no bone grafting hence can be completed within 1 single surgery. This reduces discomfort and downtime, and improves outcome. With proper care and maintenance, the new teeth can last a lifetime.
