A high-tech alternative to traditional dentures, the ALL-On-4 or 6 technique creates a comfortable and stable full set of upper and/or lower teeth using four or six strategically placed specialized dental implants. While conventional removable dentures can effectively replace a full complement of lost or missing teeth, ALL-On-4 or 6 dental implants provide a fixed and permanent method of reestablishing a complete set of teeth. This restores patients with a sense of having their own teeth and offers an improved quality of life as they can once again eat and speak with confidence. With ALL-On-4 or 6 dental implants the need for messy denture adhesives or having to take one’s dentures out to clean and sanitize them is eliminated. The replacement teeth are cared for in very much the same way as a set of natural teeth.
All-On-4 or 6 dental implants offer a less invasive and quicker way to restore a full upper or lower set of teeth than treatment with conventional dental implants. Requiring just four or six implants per jaw for a complete set of functional teeth, All-On-4 or 6 treatment may reduce the need for preliminary bone grafting surgery. Utilizing the All-On-4 or 6 method, temporary teeth can often be placed right away with a permanent set to follow within just a few months after the implants become fully integrated with the surrounding bone.
