All on Six Treatments

"All-on-Six" is a dental implant technique similar to the "All-on-Four" approach, but instead of using four strategically placed implants, it involves the use of six implants to support a full arch of teeth replacement. This technique is designed for individuals who have lost most or all of their teeth in one arch (upper or lower) and are seeking a stable, fixed set of teeth.

    Here's how the All-on-Six procedure works:

  • Implant Placement: Six dental implants are strategically positioned in the jawbone to distribute the load more evenly across the arch. This additional implant placement provides increased support and stability for the restoration.
  • Immediate Loading: As with the All-on-Four technique, a temporary or provisional denture can often be attached to the implants immediately after placement, allowing patients to leave the dental office with functional teeth on the same day as the implant surgery.
  • Healing and Osseointegration: The implants gradually integrate with the jawbone over the course of several months, providing a strong foundation for the permanent restoration.
  • Final Restoration: Once the healing process is complete, a final set of customized and permanent teeth is created. These teeth are designed to resemble natural teeth in both appearance and function.

The All-on-Six technique shares many of the advantages of the All-on-Four approach, such as immediate improvement in appearance, speech, and chewing ability. The additional implants in the All-on-Six technique can offer even greater stability and support, which can be especially beneficial for patients with more complex dental conditions or who require additional support due to factors like bone density.

However, as with any dental procedure, the suitability of the All-on-Six technique depends on individual factors such as bone health, oral health, and overall health. A thorough evaluation by a qualified dental professional is necessary to determine the best treatment plan for each patient's specific case.

In summary, the "All-on-Six" technique involves using six strategically placed implants to support a full arch of teeth replacement, providing stability, function, and an improved quality of life for individuals who have lost a significant number of teeth in one arch.
