Both All-on-4® and All-on-6® implant tooth replacement use the same method. They place dental implants to maximize existing jawbone density and gum tissue volume in order to provide support for a full denture without needing to undergo invasive procedures like bone grafting. The number of implants will depend largely on the size and shape of the jawbone. The key to success for both of these procedures is that they anchor the dental implants into the dense portion of the jawbone at the front of the mouth. That means precise positioning diagonally to support the middle and back portions of the denture. This means patients who may have otherwise not been candidates for implant supported dentures or who would need advanced preparatory procedures can receive implant supported tooth replacement more quickly or comfortably with greater chances for successful implant placement. Both All-on-4® and All-on-6® tooth replacement procedures can be paired with an immediate load denture, so patients will not spend any time without a functional smile.
