What are All on 6 Dental Implants?

Missing teeth problems have a significant impact not only on your smile, but on your whole life. Losing your natural teeth is a life changing event that can bring down your confidence, especially if you have lost most or all your teeth due to a variety of factors. Once you lose your natural teeth, you may feel like it is the end of the world – no more carefree smiles, no more enjoyable mealtimes, and goodbye normal speech. However, there is no need for you to give up in your quality of life even after multiple tooth loss. You can have dental implants to restore the normal appearance and use of your smile!

One such implant treatment that is specifically aimed towards solving multiple tooth loss is called the “All on 6 dental implants”. As the name suggests, this treatment involves using six dental implants to restore the full function and healthy appearance of a set of teeth – on either the upper or lower jaw, or both. The technique is similar to the All on 4 method, with the main difference being on the number of implants used.

The All on six implants are inserted into specific points in the jaw to maximise the existing bone structure, eliminating the need for complicated procedures such as bone grafts. The minimally-invasive method of insertion makes it possible for the patient to have a short recovery period, with almost zero downtime involved. With the All on 6 dental implants, it is possible to restore the normal appearance and use of the smile within just one day, which includes the insertion of the implants and the attachment of the corresponding teeth restoration.
