All on 4 and all on 6 Dental Implants Prostheses


All-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants/prostheses are kinds of fixed prosthesis types developed for people who are devoid of all their teeth and cannot use removable prostheses due to a lack of bone that is supporting.

They include a small number of implants and provide comfort for the person as they are fixed. Besides, temporary prostheses can be applied to the person on the same day within the procedures.


Candidates for All-on-4 and All-on-6 Dental Implants

The main factor in all-on-4 and all-on-6 treatments is that the patient has lost all his teeth. At the same time, the person should not have a disease that may prevent the implant process. In patients whose all teeth are damaged in some way, their bone structure is weakened and also cannot be treated, this application can be performed on the same day by removing all of the teeth. All-on-4 and all-on-6 techniques can be preferred because people in this situation should need a large number of implants and bone support is not enough.


Benefits of All-on-4 and All-on-6 Prostheses

It can be said that the most important advantage of these prostheses is to make temporary dentures on the same day in patients who have lost all their teeth, thus protecting the oral structure both visually and functionally. When it comes to aesthetics, these prostheses are adjusted specifically for the patient. In all-on-4 and all-on-6 procedures, there is usually no need to intervene on the jawbone. After the process, the patient can only be felt pain slightly and edema is not usually observed. Their care is also simple compared to other dental procedures. They stand out with their stability and easiness too, compared to other prostheses.

Procedures for All-on-4 and All-on-6 Dental Implants

Detailed radiographic examinations are performed during the planning phase of all-on-4 and all-on-6 treatments. Gum tissue and the amount of bone are checked. If the amount of bone is not sufficient, the bone ash can be added, or obtained from the patient. In order for the prosthesis to be applied, this step must be passed and the bone is expected to reach the ideal level. This may take about 6 months. Then the implant stage is completed.

If the patient meets all the conditions, a measurement is made to apply the temporary denture. Then a detailed examination is made in order not to damage the surrounding tissues in the mouth. The place where the implants should be applied is clearly revealed with this. Tooth extraction is done if necessary, if not, all-on-4 or all-on-6 dentures are placed. Temporary teeth are placed on the same day. All procedures are performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia due to the patient's preference. After passing the adaptation stage, permanent prostheses become ready to take within an average of 3 months.


Care and Healing of All-on-4 and All-on-6 Prostheses

Following the practice of all-on-4 or all-on-6 dentures, the patient can return the daily life by paying attention to oral care. Temporary dentures need to be well protected during the period of use, so, hard foods should be avoided for a while. When permanent prostheses are fitted, the patient can return to eating habits.

The lifetime of 4 and 6 fixed dentures depends on how well the patient follows the instructions given by the dentist. Dentures can last for a long time with good oral care. 
The cost of the all-on-4 and all-on-6 techniques varies due to the number of implants applied, additional procedures, and the type of prosthesis.
Yes. These fixed dentures are similar to natural teeth both aesthetically and functionally.
Traditional dental implants are used for single teeth, while All-on-4 and All-on-6 systems are used to support a single denture or bridge. In other words, if implants are to be made for 3 teeth in the traditional model, 3 single implants are made for 3 teeth. In the "all on 4" and "all on 6" procedures, enough implants are placed that they serve as a bridge, and the areas in between are restored with dentures. The All-on-4 system uses four implants for the upper or lower jaw, while the All-on-6 system uses six implants, again for the upper or lower jaw. These dental aesthetics systems help people who are completely toothless or have lost multiple teeth.  
All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants are both effective solutions for those with missing teeth and offer numerous benefits. These dental implant systems utilize strategically placed implants to support a full denture dental arch, offering a more robust and comfortable alternative to traditional dentures. Both All-on-4 and All-on-6 can improve overall oral health by preventing bone loss and preserving natural teeth, and can also improve speech, appearance, and confidence. All-on-6 may be preferred in situations where greater stability is needed due to more bone loss or where chewing forces may be greater.
Coverage varies depending on the individual insurance plan. Some plans may cover a portion of the cost, while others may not cover it at all. It is important to check with your insurance provider before undergoing the procedure.
