It’s a procedure for total rehabilitation of the edentulous patient.
Or for patients with badly broken down teeth, decayed teeth or compromised teeth.
Tooth loss is a common concern for many adults. In fact, one out of every four adults over 60 have lost all of their teeth. The good news is the All-On-4/6 procedure can restore a full arch of permanent teeth in just one day!
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS?
These implants are designed for individuals who are missing multiple teeth or need to have teeth removed due to injury, gum disease, or some other problem. Some patients may need implants because their current dentures have worn down. In most cases, all-on-4/6 dental implants are made to replace the entire top or bottom set of teeth, but smaller partial sets can be done if fewer teeth are missing. The best candidates will be in relatively good health otherwise and have few if any other oral or dental problems.
WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER ALL-ON-4/6 DENTAL IMPLANTS
Anyone who is tired of the hassle of removable dentures, there is hope! You can finally get a healthy-looking set of teeth without the care and tedious work of dentures.
The all-on-4/6 dental implants are changing the way people look at and think about dental implants and prosthetics. This differs from traditional implants because there is no need for an implant to be inserted for every tooth- instead, four or more implants can secure the entire top or bottom denture into place. Not only does this significantly reduce the complexity of the treatment, it also reduces the healing time and maximizes the stability of the implants. You have a shorter recovery and a set of healthy-looking teeth the same day all without the typical problems that come with dentures.
Dental implants are frequently accompanied by a dental crown in order to replace a single missing tooth. Possibly the best part of the All-On-4/6 dental implants procedure is that it only requires four/six dental implants to replace a full arch of teeth. The four/six strategically placed dental implants will fuse with the living bone tissue in your jaw to prevent further bone loss. Another incredible benefit to All-On-4/6 dental implants is the preservation of live jaw bone tissue. The patients are able to enjoy immediate function, chewing ability, clear speech, renewed confidence and restored comfort in just one day. A fixed denture is then secured to the implants for a brand new, natural-looking smile.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?
Some dental implant procedures are very involved, costly, and time consuming. They require multiple surgeries for placing the posts, bone grafts to provide enough support for all the posts and several months of recovery time to achieve full healing. This, of course, requires a lot of materials and time, all of which costs a pretty penny. This is why many people who need implants and who would benefit from them are unable to get the treatments. However, thanks to all-on-4/6 dental implants, the process is much faster.
Each jaw- upper or lower- usually only takes a few hours for the surgical implanting of the posts. The temporary denture can then be fitted and secured over the implants the same day. You will need to be on a soft diet for two weeks or so, then all that is left to do is to get used to living your life free from the hassle and headache of removable dentures!
After 3-6 months of healing, your dentist or prosthodontist will make you a new prosthesis and replace the temporary denture with your new custom-made teeth and attach it to the implants.
