Dental implantology AllOn4 & AllOn6
Traditional dental implantology, also called AllOn4 and AllOn6 dental procedures, are the best solutions for patients with sufficient bone structure in the jawbone.
He creates a permanent prosthesis using 4 or 6 dental implants.
AllOn4 dental implantology?
An all on 4 dental implant is a type of dental implant that replaces all of the teeth in a jawbone with just four implants. Unlike other types of dental implantology which generally require more implants to replace all the teeth in a jawbone, the all on 4 implant uses fewer implants to achieve the same result.
This technique is often used to replace missing teeth in people with significant bone loss or for those who do not have enough bone available to accommodate enough implants. All on 4 implants are generally faster to place and less expensive than other dental implant techniques.
If you are interested in this technique, I recommend that you contact us to learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of this approach as well as possible contraindications. The dentist can also tell you if this technique is suitable for your particular case.
All-on-6 dental implantology?
An all on 6 dental implant is a type of dental implant that replaces all of the teeth in a jawbone with just six implants. Unlike other types of dental implantology which generally require more implants to replace all the teeth in a jawbone, the all on 6 implant uses fewer implants to achieve the same result. All on 6 implants are generally faster to place and less expensive than other dental implant techniques.
The All-on-6 process offers a stable, long-term alternative to traditional dentures. With the full tooth replacement option, 6 dental implants are placed at strategic intervals in your upper or lower arch and it is important that they receive sufficient support from the surrounding bone. If you lost teeth a few years ago, you may have suffered a lot from dental bone loss.
This may also be the case if you have had advanced periodontal disease which has resulted in the destruction of the bone that surrounded your natural teeth. If you have lost bone, a full set of dental implant treatments is normally still possible as the dentist can build up bone for implant levels using sophisticated bone grafting techniques. And if the patient wants to avoid the transplant, basal and zygomatic implantation are always available.
Things to consider before choosing dental implantation
While each patient case is unique, the implant dentist considers four major factors to consider when recommending a dental implant:
- Speech problems – If speech is a major concern, periodontists should be prepared to offer alternative treatments, such as replacing missing teeth with short span bridges or simple dental implants. This will often require more implants, more bone grafts, and more expensive prostheses, so patients will need to be prepared for the added time and cost of treatment.
- Occlusion problem – Patients have difficulty recognizing premature or excessive occlusal contact. They can generate excessive biting forces due to lack of sensation.
- Bruxism – Tightening and Irregular Chewing Cycles
- High risk of cavities

All-on-6 vs. All-on-4
The simple procedure is inexpensive and effective, making it an ideal choice. However, some may wonder why they should choose All-on-6 over All-on-4?
For example, if a more extensive reconstruction is possible, All-on-6 implants are a better choice because the additional implants provide additional support to the fixed prosthesis.
However, if you do not have the additional bone mass required for the additional implants, you would be a more likely candidate for a bone void filler or for the basal implant without bone grafting.

The process is completed within a day – it often takes between 2 and 4 hours, depending on the patient.
It is normal to feel some discomfort after having full dental implants, an implant specialist can advise you on the use of over-the-counter pain relievers or will give you a prescription for pain relievers.
You may need to take antibiotics, and dentists might suggest using an antimicrobial mouthwash for the first week or so after surgery. Dentists will provide you with lots of information on how to care for your dental implants, including information on cleaning and the best foods to eat during the first few days after implant restoration surgery.
If you want to ensure the longevity of your implants, you need to keep your new teeth clean and free of bacteria and plaque. Implant failure is usually caused by bacteria and dental plaque, which can lead to tissue infection. Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial.
The list of effective hygiene tips is as follows:
Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush
Floss daily with unwaxed tape or implant-specific dental floss
Use a nylon coated brush to clean hard to reach places
Do not use very abrasive toothpaste
After the procedure, patients should make sure to visit their dentist often, especially during the first three months, and then two to three times a year thereafter. To prevent any complications or infections, it is essential to contact your dentist immediately if anything goes wrong. Once the dental implants have stabilized, continued care combined with good oral hygiene will result in a perfect smile and excellent oral health.
Correct diagnosis and precise implant planning are essential for successful implant rehabilitation.
Accurate impressions and meticulous attention to detail form the basis of a successful implant prosthesis. A full understanding of the range of prosthetic components is essential and often only acquired through clinical experience. When patients have missing teeth, the face has a sunken appearance, which makes the person look much older than they are. With dental implants, this changes instantly and a balanced, natural and radiant smile is restored. The process alone would make you look at least 15-20 years younger!
