For those who need to replace all of their missing teeth at once, All-on-4 and All-on-6 are great permanent solutions to consider. There is no need for removable dentures, and implants help prevent the sagging appearance that is often seen with tooth loss. During the first three months of the procedure, the mouth will heal and the bone and gums will change shape to fit the new device. During this time, patients should be careful when eating hard or chewy foods. Once the implants have fused with the jawline, a permanent solution is placed over the implants, such as a dental bridge or removable overdenture.
All-On-6 dental implants are also an alternative to removable dentures. The procedure is similar to that of All-On-4, but two additional screws are needed. Nowadays, All-On-4 and All-On-6 dental implants have become increasingly popular for solving the problem of severe tooth loss. All-on-4 is a treatment concept in which a full-arch dental prosthesis is fully supported by four dental implants. The doctor places dental implants in the jaw while the patient is sedated with local anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Dr. Nazarian can talk with you about your options and determine if All-on-4 implants are right for you. If you've experienced serious tooth loss, it's time to find out if All-on-4 dental implants are the right choice for you. As the name suggests, all-on-4 works by supporting an entire arc of false teeth with just four dental implants. To achieve stability and durability, all four dental implants will be inserted and tightened into pilot holes drilled at precise and strategic angles.
Unlike implant-supported dentures which must be removed for cleaning, All-on-4 implants are permanently anchored to the jaw. This makes the All-On-4 a faster and less invasive procedure with a faster recovery time than normal implants. Both All-On-4 and All-On-6 dental implants are excellent solutions for restoring either the upper or lower arch. This process allows patients to replace all of their teeth with six natural looking dental implants.
