1. Totally edentulous stage for all on 4 :
Totally without any teeth in both the upper or lower jaw.
2. Soon to be an edentulous stage for all on 4:
Only a few teeth remaining in the jaw? And most of the teeth are already removed.
3. Not comfortable with old removable denture:
Using complete removable denture for both upper and lower jaws.
And you are NOT HAPPY and comfortable with the removable dentures. Because of looseness, gum irritation, difficulty in speaking, and eating…
4. Chronic destructive periodontitis – Severe stage
Most of the teeth are shaking with a lot of frequent gum swelling and hard food deposits. That indicates all teeth need extraction and replacement.
5. Extensive end stage dental decay
Most of the teeth are severely decayed with only small parts of teeth(root stumps) only remaining. The patient will have repeated long term dental pain, frequent swelling, and abscess around teeth, difficulty in eating, long history of multiple dental treatments like fillings, root canals, crowns, and bridges.
All the above 5 situations are very much suitable for dental implant treatment and fixed teeth. Based on the bone situation and your need, your dentist will suggest either all on 4 or all on 6 or all on 8.
