All on 4 and All on 6 Dental Implants


All-on-4 and All-on-6 are dental implant techniques used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth with a fixed prosthesis.

All-on-4 is a procedure that uses four implants to support a jawbone of fixed teeth. The implants are strategically placed in areas of the jaw with the highest bone density to maximize stability and reduce the need for bone grafting. Once the implants are placed, a custom prosthesis is attached to the implants, providing a permanent and stable solution for missing teeth.

All-on-6 is a similar technique to All-on-4, but instead of using four implants, it uses six implants. This technique is typically recommended for individuals with less bone density in the jaw or who require additional support for their prosthesis.

Both techniques have become quite popular in recent years. Even in some cases with advanced bone loss, very successful results can be provided.


Who Can Have All-on-4 and All-on-6 Dental Implants?


All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants may be a suitable option for individuals who are missing an entire line of teeth or have missing teeth and are looking for a more stable and permanent solution than traditional dentures. Here are some factors that may affect candidacy:


  • These implants require a certain amount of bone density in the jaw to support the implants. If there is not enough bone, a bone graft may be necessary before the implants can be placed.
  • Candidates for All-on-6 implants should be in good overall health and free from chronic conditions that could affect healing or increase the risk of complications.
  • Active gum disease can compromise the success of dental implants, so it must be addressed and resolved before implant placement.
  • Good oral hygiene is essential for the long-term success of dental implants. Patients should be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene habits, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.


Patients should have realistic expectations for the outcome of their All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implant procedures, including the potential risks and limitations of the procedure.


Advantages of All-on-4 and All-on-6 Dental Implants


All on 4 and All on 6 dental implants have many advantages over conventional treatments. They stand out as more affordable options. Their procedures are completed in a shorter time, so they promise a fast and safe recovery process. They are much easier to maintain than dental prostheses. Patients experience less cold-hot tolerance while eating. After a successful implant process, most people do not need a second treatment.


Nutrition and Care Tips After All-on-4 and All-on-6 Dental Implants


After the treatment of All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants, one of the most important issues for patients is nutrition. The recommendations of the dentist should be followed and the recommended diet should not be exceeded during the healing process.

No food should be consumed during the first few hours after the operation. During the following day, extremely hot or extremely cold foods should be avoided. On the evening of the application, the patient should not brush their teeth and not gargle. After 2 days, gargling can be done 2 times a day. After this action, food should not be consumed for a while.

Immediately after the operation, pressure should be applied to the implant area with a tampon, as indicated by the dentist, in order for coagulation to occur and for bleeding to stop.

If any pain or pain is felt, painkillers prescribed by the doctor can be used. It's normal to see slight swelling in the operation area during the first few days. If the operation was sutured, these are removed at the end of the 1st week.

The average time it takes for the temporary prosthesis to be inserted and for the patient's implants and bone to fuse is 3 months. It is important not to consume very hard foods and to eat foods such as yogurt, eggs, and puree. At the end of 3 months, people are fitted with permanent prostheses. After this date, the patient's diet can back to normal. However, careful and correct maintenance is recommended for the longevity of the implants.
