All-on-6 and All-on-4 treatments are two of the most modern technologies in dental health. Here in Los Algodones we strive to offer the best services for our patients, and for that we keep up with the latest advances in medical science to provide the best care for the person who deserves it the most, you.

So what can these treatments offer you? All-on-6 and All-on-4 are special technologies designed to improve upon traditional implants by requiring less bone tissue and improving recovery times when a full dental restoration is the best option.

A traditional full dental implant replacement needs a good bone structure to firmly hold the denture in place. Unfortunately, this means that the procedure is not designed for everyone; in some cases people might not naturally have enough jaw bone to hold the implants; while in other cases it might be due to bone degradation. In other words, when a person loses teeth the bone in the area is reabsorbed by the body and used as nutrients, the end result might even change the shape of your face and give you a sunken look.

In those cases, traditional replacements would require the dentist to transplant new bones to the jaw area (with a procedure known as bone grafting). Where All-on-6 and All-on-4 excels is the fact that the same strength can be accomplished by just using 4 or 6 well placed implants that make the most out of your natural jaw. Some critics believe that these procedures are less reliable than regular implants since the use less implants, but many longitudinal studies have shown time and again that the success rate of All-on-6 and All-on-4 are over 97% after a 10 year timeframe.

So, what are the benefits?
