Implantology All-on-4 and All-on-6
Implantologija je idealno rješenje za sve slučajeve u kojima je potrebno nadomjestiti jedan ili više zuba, pa tako i u slučaju potpunog gubitka zuba.
Implantology is the ideal solution to obviate to the loss of one or more teeth, thus also in the case of total tooth loss. In fact, the many disadvantages of complete mobile dentures have inspired new solutions which allow a growing number of patients to choose one of the alternatives. Among these, there is the possibility to replace all the teeth of one jaw by applying only a limited number of implants, which are, due to their strategic positioning and particular precautions during installation, sufficient to support a fixed prosthesis. These are the so-called All-on-4 and All-on-6 methods. The difference between these two methods is in the number of implants, and the choice depends on the condition and amount of bone tissue.
What are the features of All on 4 and All on 6?
A mobile denture is the classical solution for total tooth loss. But, such a prosthetic solution can cause discomfort and serious problems to mouth tissues, so many patients never get used to it.
In these cases, the solution with four, or sometimes more implants, is ideal.
In fact, these implants are positioned so to provide maximum stability to the prosthesis, taking into account the bone volume of each part of the jaw. Moreover, due to an oblique positioning of the implants they can provide stability and endurance, making sure that the prosthesis does not move or get damaged.
The course of the treatment
After a serious and individual diagnosis that includes all the criteria used to determine the feasibility, difficulty and duration of the procedure, the doctor will be able to assess whether this method is the best solution or whether a larger number of implants, i.e. the All-on-6 method, is more appropriate for a particular case. After installing the implant, an impression is taken for a temporary prosthetic replacement, and within 24 hours the patient gets new teeth fixed in the mouth.
Then the osseointegration phase begins, during which the ideal connection between the bone and the implant is created, which lasts approximately four months, after which impressions are taken again, and the patient receives a much more precise final work.
