All-on-4 & All-on-6 Implants

All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants are innovative and effective solutions for individuals who have lost most or all of their teeth and are looking for a more permanent and stable alternative to traditional removable dentures. These implant-supported dental prosthetics offer significant advantages in terms of aesthetics, functionality, and overall quality of life.

All-on-4 Dental Implants:
The All-on-4 dental implant technique is a minimally invasive approach to restoring a full arch of teeth with just four strategically placed dental implants. The concept was developed as a way to provide a more cost-effective and less time-consuming solution for individuals with missing teeth. The procedure involves the following key features:

  • Four dental implants: As the name suggests, only four dental implants are used to support the entire prosthesis. These implants are strategically placed in areas of the jaw where bone density is typically higher, which often eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly bone grafts.
  • Immediate loading: In many cases, the prosthetic teeth can be attached to the implants on the same day as the surgery, allowing the patient to leave the dental office with a full set of teeth.
  • Fixed denture: The prosthetic teeth are typically a fixed denture, which means they are securely anchored to the implants and are not removable by the patient.
  • Improved stability and functionality: All-on-4 implants offer significantly improved stability and chewing efficiency compared to traditional dentures. Patients can eat a wider variety of foods and enjoy increased comfort and confidence in their daily activities.

All-on-6 Dental Implants:
All-on-6 dental implants are a variation of the All-on-4 concept, providing additional support and stability with the use of six dental implants. This technique is often recommended for individuals who may have a bit more bone loss or require extra support for the prosthetic arch. Here are some key aspects of All-on-6 dental implants:

  • Six dental implants: As the name suggests, six dental implants are used to support the prosthetic arch. The additional implants distribute the chewing forces more evenly and offer greater stability.
  • Versatility: All-on-6 implants can accommodate various prosthesis designs, including fixed or removable dentures, based on the patient's specific needs and preferences.
  • Improved bone preservation: The extra implants help in preserving and stimulating the bone in the jaw, which can be beneficial for overall oral health and facial aesthetics.
  • Enhanced support for biting and chewing: All-on-6 implants offer even more robust support, enabling patients to bite and chew with greater confidence and strength.
