ALL ON 6 - Consist of a titanium bridge which holds a full acrylic tooth structure fixed in place by means of implants. This procedure, depending on the particular case, may be able to be performed on patients with low bone density levels without resorting to bone graft. This procedure uses 6 implants to provide improved support, and once installed the dental implants have a well determined anchoring capacity and placement angle. A minimally invasive and painless procedure, ALL ON 6 does not require multiple surgeries, resulting in a surprisingly fast recovery for people in good health. There will be some discomfort, lasting approximately three days and a full recovery is achieved after three weeks. However, it is worth mentioning that for the process of osseointegration of the dental implants to be complete, it takes six months.
This procedure dates to 1990, and is recommended for people who need to rehabilitate one or both jaws, due to bone loss, and who would like to replace their traditional denture with a more efficient, hygienic, natural, and comfortable alternative.
Whether the decision is ALL ON 6 or ALL ON 8, either procedure is more successful when placing the dental implants in the front of the mouth, since it is in this part of the jaw that there is generally a greater bone density. The titanium prosthesis is mounted on a system of pillars and will have the capacity to accommodate 12 or 14 teeth, and once the prosthesis is installed there will be no need to remove it. Proper dental hygiene will consist of mouthwashes and brushing, the same as with natural teeth. You will notice the difference, and your smile and oral function will improve significantly.
Another huge benefit provided by this procedure is in savings, because with traditional dental implants a single dental implant is needed for each tooth, which would create a large difference in the price.
