In Which Situations Is All On-6 Implant Technique Applied?

  • In patients with complete tooth loss,

  • If it is decided that all teeth will be extracted voluntarily,

  • In patients with low jaw bone density, if a full-mouth dental implant cannot be applied due to this reason,

  • In case the patients cannot afford the time foreseen to get new teeth,

What are the All On Six Implant Application Stages?

This treatment method consists of 3 steps. All-on-6 implant application stages are as follows:

Step One: Integrating six (6) dental implants into the jawbone;

In this treatment, bone grafting is required to see if the dental implants will stand where they will fix them, and bone placement is performed with a surface treatment to facilitate the fixation process. The measurements of the patient are made with Cad Cam technology. The mold dimensions taken by this method are entirely compatible. These measurements are applied by sending them to the laboratories. Images can be shown to the patient, where he can see how he will gain teeth with treatment. In this treatment method, local anesthesia or intravenous sedation can be applied to the patient. If there is a tooth that needs to be extracted, the extraction process is performed by the dentist. The dentist can take X-rays to understand the condition of the jawbone. Six (6) different anchorage (attachment) areas are determined according to the dimensions and strategically placed with the Digital Surgery method to fix the prostheses. Implant angles should be determined to provide the teeth with the most efficient biting and chewing skills. To ensure this situation, the anterior dental implants are mounted at an angle of 90 degrees and the posterior dental implants at an angle of 45 degrees.

After this stage, the Maxillofacial Surgeon cuts the gums and places six (6) titanium dental  implants.

Step Two: Placement of temporary prostheses

Crown or Bridge (temporary prosthesis); For the teeth do not appear empty on the dental implants and for the gums to heal in the best way; With the all-on-six treatment, a three-dimensional image of the jawbone is taken at the same time, and the dental implant is attached to the jawbone during the fusion period. Thus, the patient is provided teeth during the treatment process.

Step Three: Placement of permanent prostheses

It takes 4-5 months for the dental implants to fuse with the jawbone and become compatible. After recovery, permanent prostheses are fixed on the patient. Loss of function due to tooth loss and aesthetic smile and comfortable speaking ability are regained with the All on six (6) dental implant method.
