All On Six Treatment FAQ


The All-on-6 treatment is a dental procedure that involves replacing all missing teeth in an arch with a fixed prosthesis supported by six dental implants.

The main difference between the All-on-6 and All-on-4 treatments is the number of dental implants used. The All-on-4 treatment utilizes four implants per arch, while the All-on-6 treatment uses six implants. The additional implants in the All-on-6 treatment provide increased stability and support for the prosthesis.

The treatment duration can vary depending on individual cases, but generally, the All-on-6 procedure can be completed in a few appointments spread over a few months. This includes initial consultation, implant placement surgery, healing period, and final prosthesis placement.

Dental implants used in the All-on-6 treatment have a high success rate and are considered safe. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. It’s important to discuss your medical history and any concerns with your dental professional before undergoing the All-on-6 treatment.

The All-on-6 treatment is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. Afterward, you may experience some discomfort and swelling, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication and proper post-operative care.

All-on-6 prostheses require regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing. Our dentists will provide specific instructions on how to clean your prosthesis effectively. Regular dental check-ups are also important to monitor the health of your implants and prosthesis.

While the All-on-6 treatment is suitable for many patients with missing teeth or deteriorated oral health, a comprehensive evaluation by a dental professional is necessary to determine if you are a suitable candidate. Factors such as bone density, overall health, and specific dental conditions will be taken into consideration.

Recovery time for implants normally goes from three to eight months, however with All-on-6 inserts, you’ll probably recover much sooner.

All-on-6 dental implants are meant to be a permanent dental solution. Your implants can last 20 years or even more with proper care.
