All On Four and All on Six

All On Four And All On Six Treatment

All-on-Four and All-on-Six treatments are advanced dental implant techniques that offer fixed prosthetic solutions for patients experiencing tooth loss.

 

These treatments are procedures used in cases of complete edentulism and are performed by placing a certain number of implants to provide support to the entire jawbone.

 

Here is detailed information about these two treatment methods:

  1. All-on-Four Treatment

    All-on-Four, as the name suggests, is a treatment method in which four dental implants are placed to support the prosthesis of the entire upper or lower jaw. Implants are strategically placed in the jawbone and a fixed prosthesis is placed on top.

    Advantages of All-on-Four Treatment

    • Fewer Implants: A fixed prosthesis is placed on the entire jaw using only four implants.

    • Faster Procedure: It is usually possible to place both the implants and the temporary prosthesis in a single day.

    • No Bone Graft Required: Since implants are placed at an angle, the need for bone graft is reduced in most cases.

    • Cost Effectiveness: Using fewer implants provides a cost advantage.

    All-on-Six Treatment

    All-on-Six treatment is a method in which the entire upper or lower jaw is restored with a fixed prosthesis using six dental implants. This treatment method provides greater stability by using more implants.

    Advantages of All-on-Six Treatment

    Greater Stability: Six implants provide better support of the prosthesis and are more durable in the long term.

    Wide Area of Application: More implants allow the prosthesis to be spread over a wider area and supported in a balanced manner.

    More Support: Provides better support, especially against chewing forces.

    Treatment Process

    Both treatment methods involve similar steps:

    • Examination and Planning: Your dentist performs an examination to evaluate the condition of your teeth and jawbone. A treatment plan is created using imaging methods such as x-ray and tomography.

    • Implant Placement: Implants are placed in the jawbone under local anesthesia. Four implants are placed for All-on-Four and six implants are placed for All-on-Six.

    • Temporary Prosthesis: After the implants are placed, a temporary prosthesis is attached. This is used throughout the healing process.

    • Healing Process: It takes a few months for the implants to integrate with the bone (osseointegration).

    • Permanent Prosthesis: After healing is completed, the temporary prosthesis is removed and a permanent prosthesis is placed.

    Maintenance and Follow-up

    • Good Oral Hygiene: Regular brushing and flossing are important for the longevity of implants and dentures.

    • Regular Check-ups: Having regular check-ups with your dentist ensures that implants and dentures stay healthy.

    • Special Cleaning Tools: It may be necessary to use special toothbrushes and dental floss for cleaning implants and dentures.

    • All-on-Four and All-on-Six treatments offer effective and long-lasting solutions in case of complete edentulism. It is important to have a detailed evaluation with your dentist to determine which treatment is right for you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

Here's Frequently Asked Questions About All On Four And All On Six

What is All-on-4 treatment?

All-on-4 is a dental implant procedure where four implants are placed in the jawbone to support a full arch of prosthetic teeth. This treatment is designed to replace an entire set of upper or lower teeth using just four strategically placed implants.

What are the advantages of All-on-4 treatment?

Advantages include a full-arch restoration with fewer implants, immediate function and aesthetics, reduced need for bone grafting, cost-effectiveness compared to individual implants, and a shorter overall treatment time.

Will I feel pain during the All-on-4 treatment?

During the procedure, local anesthesia or sedation is used to ensure you do not feel any pain. Post-surgery, some discomfort and swelling are expected, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications and proper aftercare.

How long does the All-on-4 procedure take?

The entire All-on-4 procedure typically takes about 2-4 hours per arch. This includes the placement of implants and the attachment of a temporary prosthetic on the same day.

How long do the results of All-on-4 treatment last?

With proper care and maintenance, All-on-4 implants can last many years, often a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene are essential to ensure the longevity of the implants.

What should I do after the All-on-4 treatment?

After the treatment, follow your dentist’s post-care instructions, which may include eating soft foods, avoiding strenuous activities, maintaining good oral hygiene, and attending follow-up appointments.

Does All-on-4 treatment provide natural-looking results?

Yes, All-on-4 treatment is designed to provide natural-looking results. The prosthetic teeth are custom-made to match the appearance of natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and aesthetically pleasing smile.

How is All-on-4 different from traditional dentures?

All-on-4 offers a fixed, permanent solution compared to removable dentures. The implants provide better stability, prevent bone loss, and offer improved comfort and functionality, closely mimicking natural teeth.

Who is a good candidate for All-on-4 treatment?

Good candidates for All-on-4 treatment are individuals who are missing most or all of their teeth, have sufficient bone density to support implants, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations about the results.

What is the cost of All-on-4 treatment?

The cost of treatment may vary depending on the patient’s needs and the materials used. A detailed examination and planning is required for the exact cost.
