All on 6

All on 6 is a treatment method that strategically places six dental implants in the lower or upper jaw to support a fixed dental prosthesis. It is used for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth and can help restore chewing function, speech, and aesthetic appearance.

Suitability for treatment is generally determined by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, based on your overall health condition and the status of your jawbone.

The treatment duration can be around 3 months on average, but can vary between patients. The placement of implants and the subsequent healing process are the longest stages that influence the total treatment time.

Dental implants are usually made using titanium. The dental prosthesis is often made from durable materials like acrylic, composite resin, or porcelain.

Initially, an examination and assessment are carried out, and a treatment plan is created based on your aesthetic preferences, such as tooth color, shape, and size. Then, six titanium implants are placed in the jawbone, and time is allowed for osseointegration, where they fuse securely with the jawbone. Once healed, a permanent dental bridge is fabricated and attached to the implants.

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Mild to moderate soreness may be experienced post-procedure but is usually manageable with over-the-counter painkillers.

With good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, All-on-six implants can potentially last for several decades.

Maintaining All-on-six implants is similar to caring for natural teeth, involving regular brushing and flossing. Antiseptic mouthwash can be used, and interdental brushes or water flossers can help clean areas between and around the implants.

All-on-six implants support a fixed dental bridge, which is securely attached and not meant to be removed in daily life.

The All-on-six procedure restores dental functions and closely resembles natural teeth aesthetically. It offers a stable and secure solution, avoiding issues like loose or dislodging dentures.

While All-on-6 is a robust solution for most people, those with severe bone loss may require additional treatments, like bone grafting, before implant placement. Moreover, if an implant fails, it may complicate the restoration due to the fixed nature of the bridge. As with any surgical procedure, there’s a small risk of complications, such as infection, nerve damage, or sinus problems.
