What Are All on 6/8 and All on 4 Dental Implants?

6 implants are placed in the entire upper or lower jawbone. These will support a complete set of teeth on top of them.

All on 4 procedures have only 4 implants placed in the jaw, usually toward the front of the mouth. All-on-8 implants are another option with eight implants.

The “all-on” procedures help maintain the health of your bone and gums and reduce the hassle of a removable prosthesis.

They are gaining popularity because it is a fixed replacement.

A fixed bridge is placed on six implants to replace the missing teeth.

Am I a Candidate?

When considering all-on-six dental implants abroad, you need to find out if you are a candidate for them.

Here are some things to look out for:

  • All your teeth in at least one arch should be missing.
  • A failing dentition, where the remaining teeth have a poor prognosis, all-on-6/8 could be a good option. Post-extraction, the all on 6 procedure is carried out.
  • Certain medical conditions also hinder your chances of getting All-on-6/8 dental implants.

ALL-on-Six - before & after

All on 6 Dental Implants: Before and After
  • Implants in uncontrolled diabetes or hypertension are not necessarily contraindicated. [1] Written consent from your medical practitioner is usually required.
  • Other issues, like some cancers, ongoing radiotherapy, or some heart conditions, are absolute contraindications.
Teeth implants show a success rate of 98.7% even after 6 years. [2]

Components of an All on 6/8 Implant System


  • 6 or 8 implants are placed after a thorough examination.
  • The primary function of implants is anchorage and load distribution.

All on 6 Dental Implant System

All on 6 Dental Implant System

  • An abutment is a part that connects the underlying implant to the overlying crown.
  • Nowadays, one-piece implants are also available. These have a single unit that includes both the implant and the abutment instead of two separate components.

  • A 12-unit fixed bridge, i.e., 12 replacement teeth in the form of an arch, is placed on top of these six implants.
  • The full arch bridge is a replacement for your natural teeth. It can be made of porcelain crowns.

All on 4 vs All on 6 Dental Implants

As their name suggests, the difference between the two is the number of implants placed. But which is better, all on 4 or all on 6 dental implants?

All on 4 employ four implants, whereas all on 6 use six implants.

In all on 6, the two additional implants lead to better strength and stability by distributing the chewing forces evenly over the jaw.

Moreover, they provide a long-term benefit by keeping the jaw bone healthy.

Although both are used to replace teeth in an edentulous arch (having no teeth), there are some more differences between the two systems.

Difference All on 4 All on 6
Number Four implants Six implants
Gum Replacement The prosthesis has a part that mimics the gums. Only tooth crowns. No gum replacement component.
Angulation Back implants are inclined at a 45-degree. All implants are placed vertically.
Bone Grafting Graftless procedure. Bone grafting can be done if needed.

Procedure

This procedure usually takes a total of two visits, typically spread over 3-6 months. After a physical assessment of your jaws, a treatment plan is made to place 6 implants.

Further, a customized dental bridge unit is firmly attached to these implants. This procedure ensures you get a long-lasting set of teeth.


Consultation

  • To assess your case, your dentist will do a physical examination of your oral cavity.
  • A CT scan is typically done to get 3D imaging of your upper and lower jawbones.
  • This helps the dentist get a clear picture of the amount, density, height, and width of bone present for better treatment planning.

Consultation for All on6/8 dental implants

Consultation

Treatment Plan

  • The proposed dental plan is then discussed with the patient.
  • This is when you can ask about the materials used, the cost, or the procedure itself.
  • Once the patient and the dentist are both satisfied with the plan will the process go any further.

Pre-Treatment Oral Prophylaxis

Many patients don’t see the relevance of pretreatment procedures in the process of getting implants.

These procedures are very important for the implant to be successful.

An unhealthy environment in the mouth can make it difficult for the implant to survive.

  • If you have some existing teeth in your jawbone, which have a poor prognosis, extractions are recommended.
  • Teeth that cannot be saved are extracted.
  • Scaling/deep cleaning is also recommended before the procedure.

Dental examination

Pre-Implant Checkup

Implant Placement

  • Six implants are strategically placed in the jawbone for maximum load distribution.
  • This prevents the bone from becoming weaker under undue stress.
  • A temporary removable bridge is placed on these implants until the second appointment.

.


Healing Period and Osseointegration (Back Home)

  • This is a period of 3-6 months where the bone and gums heal.
  • Osseointegration [3] is the fusion of the bone and implant surface.
  • This process is very crucial for the success of the procedure.

Dental Implant Technique

Osseointegration in implants – typically takes 3-6 months.

Permanent Fixed Bridge

After the healing is complete, a permanent fixed bridge is placed on the implants.

Why are All on 6 Implants Cheaper in Dental Tourism Destinations?

If you are missing teeth in your upper and lower jaw, all-on-six implants can be an excellent solution.

4 implants are placed in the front of your jaw, and 2 are placed at the back for additional stability. They support a full bridge of the replacement teeth.

All-on-6 dental implants abroad save you about 60% of what you would pay in the U.S., Canada, or Australia.

But why is this procedure pocket-friendly overseas?

  • Taxes, labor costs, operating costs, and the cost to build a practice are all lower in these countries.
  • Dentists in many dental tourism destinations don’t have to repay massive student debt, unlike their counterparts in the US. [4]

The quality of the procedure is the same as back home, but the lower cost makes the technique beneficial overseas.

All on 6 Dental implants: Problems

All-on-six dental implants is an extensive surgical procedure. Implant failure and infection are some of the commonly encountered problems.

Implant failure

During the whole treatment process (3-6 months), there are chances of implant failure. But what does it mean when an implant “fails”?

When the implant becomes loose and wobbly, it is known as implant failure.

Ways to minimize it are:

  • Follow your dentist’s post-care instructions.
  • Avoid smoking, hard and sticky food.
  • Eat a soft diet. Maintain good oral hygiene

Infection

In any surgical procedure, infection is a possibility. Generally, there is a low risk of infection with implants.

Peri-implantitis is the term used for gum disease that arises when the implant is infected.

Pain, pus, fever, bleeding on brushing, wobbly implant, red and puffy gums are signs of an infection.

Ways to minimize it are:

  • Follow your dentist’s post-care instructions.
  • Inform the clinic as soon as you see any signs.
  • Maintain good oral hygiene. Schedule regular checkups every six months.

If the infection is caught in time, the dentist can save the implant. As time passes, the condition may worsen, leading to the loss of an implant.

Choosing the right dental provider becomes crucial while getting the treatment. Thus, before opting for this procedure abroad, you should research well.

Nonetheless, with the latest technology and experienced dentists, the problems with this treatment are minimal.

Pros and Cons of All on 6 and 8 Dental Implants

Each dental treatment has its own set of pros and cons. The same goes for all on 6 and 8 dental implants.

Pros Cons
A less invasive technique May require a bone graft
Firmly hold the denture/bridge Expensive procedure if not covered by insurance
Preserves the jawbone and maintains strength and stability. Complications may arise with an inexperienced dentist

 

It is a good practice to discuss and outweigh the various advantages and disadvantages with your dentist before opting for the procedure.

All on 8 Dental Implants

Another type of “All-on” procedure is the All-on-8 system. It includes full arch implants.

It involves placing eight implants in a single arch, to support a full set of teeth.

This procedure is generally indicated when the person has lost more than 80% of their teeth.

4 implants are placed in the front of the jaw, and 4 are placed at the back.

They are anchors for the fixed replacement bridges that can be made of hybrid, zirconium, or porcelain material.

Your dentist generally selects an all-on 4/6/8 after a complete examination.

The additional implants in all-on-6 and all-on-8 offer greater stability and give you long-lasting confidence.

All on 8 dental implants abroad

All on 8 Dental Implants

All on 8 in Case of Severe Bone Loss

Although this technique is more extensive than the All-on-4, its indications are also different. It will hold onto the bone very firmly, preventing the risk of failure of the system.

The procedure of All-on-8 Implants is the same as All-on-6, except for the number of implants used.

In case of severe bone loss, bone grafting is done before the placement of dental implants. The rest of the procedure is the same.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Most of our patients go back to work within a week of surgery. However, we suggest you take at least 5-7 days of complete rest.
  • If you have other medical issues, or if there are any complications, do not stress your body by going to work until your surgeon tells you to.
  • Dental implant procedures are usually done under anesthesia.
  • Usually, conscious sedation or general anesthesia is given in case of All-on-6/8 surgeries.
  • Even after the surgery, appropriate medications are given to manage pain and swelling.
  • Mild pain after surgery is normal. However, in case you experience excruciating pain, contact your surgeon immediately.

Smoking is very harmful to the process of osseointegration.

To ensure the success of your implant, you must quit smoking at least for a few weeks after the procedure.

The fundamental difference between all on 4 and all on 6 dental implants is the number of implants used. They use 4 and 6 implants, respectively.

The two additional implants give extra stability and strength to the jaw by evenly distributing the chewing forces. This ensures a longer-lasting dental arch.

All on 6 dental implants range from $6,000 to $12,000, depending on the country you choose for your dental tourism.

The cost of dental implants in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Thailand can save you upto 60-70% on what you would pay back home.

To know more about the prices, check out the cost comparison table above.

  • Diabetics are at a very high risk of infections. During implant surgery, the patient’s tissues are exposed to the external environment. This makes them vulnerable.
  • To avoid such complications, taking your medications on time is essential.
  • Written consent from your medical practitioner is also required if you have any underlying medical conditions.

Implants are a permanent solution for replacing natural teeth.

With proper dental care and regular visits to the dentist, they can last you a lifetime.

The implant screw in your jawbone can is a permanent fixture. The crown on top might require replacement in 10-15 years due to wear and tear.
