What are All On 4, All On 6 And All On 8 Implant Systems
All on 4 – All on 6 – All on 8 : All Teeth on 4, 6, or 8 Implants
If you have lost all teeth you are using dentures
If most of your teeth are lost and the ones which are left are either not very firm or ailing then you have options of these implant systems.
What is Benefit of These Systems?
These implant systems reduce the number of implants required to completely fill your mouth with either 12 or 14 new teeth in each jaw (depending on your individual condition). This lesser number of implant requirement significantly lowers down the overall cost and requirement for healthy/viable sites in the jaw where implants can be placed.
All-On-4, All-On-6, and All-On-8 are titles of three dental implant options, each of which serve to completely reconstruct a patient’s smile. You may be wondering what the differences are among these three options, so we’ll help make that clear.
What is the Difference Between Them?
The “4, 6, and 8” represent the number of implants that will be inserted into the jawbone.
How do we determine which option is right for you?
We use CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) to gather the most precise and accurate reading of your specific bone structure. The quality, volume, and quantity of your bone is determined through our 3-D imaging, and thoroughly studied by the doctor.
Patient’s often wonder the All-On-Four is a better procedure than the All-On-6 or All-On-8. The answer is no. There is no better procedure than another; we are just cautious in assigning you the correct procedure according to condition that your 3-D image presents.
To further explain, we are more apt to advise an All-On-8 for a patient with a more narrow, less sustainable jawbone. Why? Because as you may have gathered, an increased number of implants means an increased amount of stability. When a healthy, substantial jawbone is present, an All-On-4 is most often the prescribed procedure.
Are you wondering what a good candidate for an All-On-4, All-On-6, or All-On-8 procedure looks like?
All on 4 Dental Implant System
Typically, patients who present a significant amount of tooth loss or decay are considered to be ideal All-On-4, 6, or 8 candidates. In addition, any patients who suffers from Periodontal Disease and/or other forms of gum disease are less likely to be considered for this procedure.
We like to make it a point to assure our patients that they are doing the best thing for their smile and their overall health by taking advantage of one of these dental implant procedures. Often times, a patient with enough teeth to get by will hesitate to come in for a procedure like this. It is important, however, to note that the reason for tooth loss or decay is often the result of Periodontal Disease or some underlying issue.
This could be detrimental to a person’s oral health and general well being. Undergoing an All-On-4, All-On-6, or All-On-8 procedure is a guarantee that the patient will get as close to authentic, healthy teeth as they are ever going to get. When there is tooth loss or decay, our expertise combined with these specific implants will allow the patient to obtain the same level of strength and stability as they would have with natural teeth.
Don’t hesitate any longer. We are the best in implant dentistry and we are confident that you will leave here wondering why you didn’t come in sooner! Are you tired of being uncomfortable and unhappy? Are you simply tired of lacking confidence?
