All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants are two of the most popular treatments for dental restorations, helping you recover that complete that natural looking smile and teeth as sturdy and functional as their natural counterparts.

All-on-4 or All-on-6 which one is the right choice for you?

When we compare implants with other teeth replacement options such as bridges or dentures, implants are second to none. Temporal or removable replacements can be extremely uncomfortable when chewing hard foods or chewy foods, and they may even fall off at any time, which make some people very self-conscious, and apprehensive to talk for long periods of time.

Implants on the other hand share none of these issues, and with good care they can last for a lifetime, who wouldn’t like to live a worry free and healthy life? All-on-4 and All-on-6 are some of the most cutting edge implant techniques on the market, what makes them unique is that both All-on-4 and All-on-6 were designed to support even a full arch of teeth with a small number of implants.

And why would you want that? Excellent question, first, by having to place less implants the work is safer, it can be done faster and is less invasive. On the other hand, that also means that the recovery period is shorter, so you can be up and running in half the time of a regular implant.

So, All-on-4 or All-on-6, which one is right for you? Every patient’s needs are unique, as such, a careful examination is necessary to provide the best options for your particular case; still, here are some basic things to keep in mind:

  • The bigger the jawbone the more implants a patient is going to need, so if you have a big jawbone you are probably going to need an All-on-6
  • Patient who have teeth remaining usually have a superior bone density and tend to support a greater number of implants; on the other side, patients with no teeth remaining may need bone grafting so that the implants can be placed.
  • Both procedures are adequate for a full or partial restoration, which one to pick is usually decided by other factors; but if one of your options is to use bridge supported implants for a full-arch replacement you will probably need six implants.

Getting implants is one of the best choices you can make in your life, not only do they look great, but they also carry dozens of health related benefits. If you think that you are the right person for an implant, contact us today, we are happy to serve.
