If your bone is shorter than a certain level, this is the way to replace your missing teeth. All-On-4 and All-On-6 system is used only to replace whole jaw of teeth.
Rather than being inserted vertically, for optimum strength, implants are placed at a 30-45 degree angle. What this means it that even patients who have suffered bone loss will still be eligible for All-On-4 & All-On-6 treatment without having to go through a costly and lengthy process of a bone graft.
Then a fixed one piece of bridge gets cemented or screwed on the implants when screws are fully fused into the jaw-bone.
This system is not advised unless it is your only option due to your jaw bone sutructure.
Because the biggest disadvantage of these systems is that , if one of the implants among All-On-4 or All-On-6 fails, the treatment gets interrupted and the other 3 or 5 implants needs to be removed.

Our dentists will give you local sprey anesthesia to numb the gum so you won't feel much pain when they are giving you local anesthetic injections. If you would prefer to have a general anesthetic or sedation during your All-On-4 & All-On-6 treatment, we can arrange this for you but it will incur an extra cost. We will need one week advanced notice to arrange this with the hospital.
After any remaining teeth are removed your mouth will be cleaned and we will remove any damaged tissue and bacteria during the treatment process.
Two holes at the rear – one on each side – are angled to offer greater support to the rear of the bridge. When the implants are in place, your mouth is cleaned again and the incisions are stitched up using dissolvable stitches which disappear after a week or two. Your temporary removable denture will be ready next day, but as much as possible first two weeks try to avoid putting it on if it is not too necesarry. Thanks to the technology screws' fusing into the bone takes as short as 2 months to 3 months ( if bone graft is not applied ).
Patients usually experience some bruising, swelling and general discomfort in the days after their surgery. You’ll probably want to take a couple of days off work to recover fully and get used to your new teeth.
Your dentist will advise you on the type of foods you can and cannot eat in the months after your treatment. For the first few months you’ll probably have to stick to very soft foods so you don’t disturb the process of the implants fusing with your bone. You might also be advised to avoid things like smoking and heavy exercise for a while.
These implants are cleaned just like your normal teeth - by brushing once a day. Your dentist will show you how to floss with special tools. Your implants has a life time guarantee and not likely to fail once they are fused properly. But having bone illnesses and weaknesses can cause fail even after years passes from your treatmnet. Early diagnosis will enable you to take necesarry precautions, so don't ignore visiting a dentist regularly for general check up and proffesional cleaning.
