All-on-4/6 For An All-time Smile

All-on-4/ All-On-6 implant is the finest dental treatment for teeth missing with permanent duration. This is one of the latest technicalities of the world dentistry, which ensures both functional and aesthetic aspects for patients throughout the treatment.

Let’s start with defining what an implant is. A dental implant consists of 3 parts: screw, abutment (connector) and crown. The screw is usually made of titanium that is inserted into your jawbone in the space left by a missing tooth. Once the implant is placed in your mouth, your dentist will place a fake tooth onto the screw.

So, let’s imagine replacing 15 missing teeth with 15 implants, are you sure that your body can afford such an intensive surgery and your budget can afford such a fortune? Therefore, All-on-4/6 is meant to improve these defects by applying only 4 or 6 screws functioning as anchors for a porcelain bridge on top.

1. What is All-on-4/All-on-6 for?

Like any implant applications, All-on-4/6 implant is meant to treat tooth replacement. In essence, it is suitable for those who had multiple consecutive missing teeth or lost an arch of teeth or lost all the teeth. These conditions can be caused by accidents, ineffective root canal treatment and so on.

2. Why choosing All-on-4/All-on-6 over other treatments?

Dentures are very common when it comes to missing many teeth. However, dentures do not provide any biocompatibility, resulting in jaw retrusion and negatively affect patient’s appearance as time goes by. Unlike dentures, the titanium screws are compatible with bone tissues, therefore, make the implants as identical as a real healthy tooth.

On the other hand, there are 4 common tooth replacement options: porcelain bridges, dentures, single-tooth implant and All-On-4 implant. In order to find the best option for you, let’s compare their pros and cons together!

3. What is the All-on-4/All-on-6 implant procedure like?

Firstly, the dentist will perform a medical check-up and take your 3D CT images.

Secondly, the dentist will make incisions in the gum to place 4 implants in the jawbone.

Next, a temporary denture will be placed.

Lastly, the dentist will complete the procedure (after 4-6 months) and placing permanent crowns.

4. All-on-4/All-on-6 pros and cons

– Integrated and combined flexibly with porcelain bridge method, minimizing cost;

– 1 surgery only, limiting fatigue and risks, helping patients recover quickly;

4.2. Cons: There are two major disadvantages of the All-On-4/6

  • First, the All-On-4/6 implants can go up to 12000 USD per arch. You’d better build a detailed proactive plan, probably several months or years prior to the G time!                                                   
  • Second, since All-On-4/6 Implant is in fact a surgery, there are some unexpected effects such as persistent bleeding, swelling, pain, stiff muscles and so forth.

However, these conditions are short-term and are easily treated following advice and instructions by dentists and doctors.
