Am I a Candidate for All-on-6 implants?

  • All your teeth in at least one arch should be missing.
  • Sometimes failing dentition where a few teeth with poor prognosis are pesent. In such cases, All-on-6/8 could be a good option. This treatment is done after extracting all the teeth.
  • Certain medical conditions also hamper your chances of getting All-on-6/8 dental implants.

Components of an All-on-6/8 Implant System

1. Implants 

  • Six / Eight implants are placed after thorough examination.
  • The primary function of implants is anchorage and load distribution.

2. Abutments 

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

3. Bridge

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

All-on-4 vs. All-on-6 Dental 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.

Difference All-on-4 All-on-6
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.

All-on-6 Implants Procedure

This procedure usually takes a total of two visits typically spread over 3-6 months.

1. Consultation (VISIT 1)

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

Consultation All on 6/8

2. Treatment Plan (VISIT 1)

  • The proposed dental plan is then discussed with the patient.
  • This is the time during which you can ask doubts regarding the materials used, the cost or the procedure itself.
  • Only after both the patient and the dentist are satisfied with the plan, will the process go any further.

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.

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

Pre implant dental work

4. Implant Placement (VISIT 1)

  • Six implants are strategically placed in the jawbone for the 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.

5. Healing Period and Osseointegration (Back Home)

Osseointegration in implants

Osseointegration in implants – typically takes 3-6 months
  • This is a period of 3-6 months where the bone and gums heal.
  • Osseointegration is the fusion of the bone and implant surface.
  • This process is very crucial for the success of the procedure.

6. Permanent Fixed Bridge (VISIT 2)

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

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. How soon after surgery will I be able to work?

  • 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 and unless your surgeon tells you to.

2. Is the All on 8 or 6 procedure painful?

  • 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 painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication is given to deal with the pain and swelling.
  • Mild pain after surgery is normal. However, in case you experience excruciating pain, feel free to contact your surgeon immediately.

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?

  • Diabetics are at 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.

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?
