All-on-4 and All-on-6 Types of Dental Implants

Posted by AMAYA DENTAL on Oct 21 2021, 09:23 PM

If you have been planning to get Dental Implants, you would have come across All-on-4 and  All-on-6 types of procedures for implants. The significant difference between the two types of dental implants is the number of implants used in each set. A dentist would recommend one type or the other of implants for patients according to their needs. The type of implant is also chosen according to which suits the patient the best to provide a favorable outcome. At Amaya Dental, our patients are informed about All-on-4 and  All-on-6 in detail before the treatment begins.

Benefits of All-on-4 

  • All-on-4 is a quick procedure that can be completed in fewer visits.
  • The treatment permanently restores the smile of the patient.
  • The patient can maintain the implant like how they maintain natural teeth. 
  • There is less need for bone grafting to perform an All-on-4  treatment.
  • It is an affordable type of dental restoration. 

Benefits of All-on-6

  • All-on-6 provides functionality to the teeth.
  • It is a permanent solution that replaces the missing teeth.
  • The treatment does not require removable dentures.
  • It helps to enhance the appearance of the patient.
  • All-on-6 enables proper chewing of food.

The Procedure of All-on-4 and  All-on-6

The procedure for both types of dental implants is similar. The only difference is the number of implants planted during the treatment. An All-on-4 treatment uses four implants, while an All-on-6 utilizes six implants. The dentist chooses the right type of implant for the patient, considering their requirements. Patients who require major dental reconstruction will require All-on-6  dental implants, which provide more stability and strength to the patient's jaw structure. 

The dentist initiates the process by conducting a comprehensive examination of the dental condition of the patient. This includes a digital X-ray and  3D Cone Beam CT-Scan that helps the dentist study the mouth's internal anatomical structures. 

Impressions of the mouth are then taken through a digital imaging system. The patient is then sedated using anesthesia, after which the implants are planted into the jawbone through a small incision in the gums. After proper healing of the gums, the prosthesis like dentures is mounted on the implants.
