All-on-6 Dental Implants: Optimizing Your Full Arch Restoration
The All-on-6 dental implant procedure expands the concept of full-arch restoration. Utilizing six implants to secure a full-arch prosthesis, it ensures an even more robust and stable foundation for prosthetic teeth.
At its core, a dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root. The implant bonds with the natural bone, forming a strong foundation for supporting the crown or artificial tooth.
So, what differentiates All-on-6 from All-on-4?
Primarily, the addition of two more implants in the All-on-6 procedure leads to an enhanced spread of the load, providing a stronger, more stable foundation for the prosthetic teeth.
Are there any prerequisites for opting for All-on-6?
Patients interested in All-on-6 must have a sufficient bone density to support the additional implants. If bone density is an issue, bone grafting procedures can be considered to enhance candidacy for All-on-6.
