Six implants are placed in the entire upper or lower jawbone. These will support a complete set of teeth on top of them. Another option is the All-on-8 implants with eight implants.
Although both are used for the replacement of teeth in an edentulous arch (having no teeth), there are some differences between the two systems.
|Number||Four implants||Six implants|
|Gum Replacement||The prosthesis has a part which 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.|
This procedure usually takes a total of two visits typically spread over 3-6 months.
1. Consultation (VISIT 1)
2. Treatment Plan (VISIT 1)
3. Pre-Treatment oral prophylaxis (VISIT 1)
Many patients don’t see the relevance of pre-treatment procedures in the whole scenario of getting implants. To prevent the implant from failing, this is a significant consideration. An unhealthy environment in the mouth can make it difficult for the implant to survive.
4. Implant Placement (VISIT 1)
5. Healing Period and Osseointegration (Back Home)
6. Permanent Fixed Bridge (VISIT 2)
All on 6 cost includes the placement of six implants, abutments, and hybrid fixed arch of teeth. This also includes all medical and surgical costs.
Another type of “All-on” procedure is the All-on-8 system. It includes full arch implants. It involves the placement of eight implants in a single arch, to support a full set of teeth.
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, save the number of implants used.
1. How soon after surgery will I be able to work?
2. Is the All on 8 or 6 procedure painful?
3. Can I smoke after getting dental implants?
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.
4. I have diabetes. Can I still get implants?
5. How long are the implants going to last?
Implants are a permanent solution for replacing natural teeth. They can last you a lifetime.
6. Will my new teeth look and feel natural?
Absolutely! In terms of strength as well as aesthetics, no other treatment has matched dental implants.
They look very natural and a person looking at you, even while you’re smiling, won’t be able to tell the difference
7. What is the age limit to get implants?
There is no upper limit for getting dental implants. Patients as old as 85-90 years have had successful implant surgeries.
8. Will I need a bone graft?
Bone grafts are used when the available bone is not enough to go ahead with implant treatment.
