Dental implants are the best option when it comes to replacing lost teeth due to any reason. Missing tooth or teeth if not replaced can cause misalignment of adjacent teeth and also adversely affect the ability to chew. It may also result in bone loss and other severe dental issues in the long run. Dentists usually suggest various dental implant options such as All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants when you have to replace all your teeth.
All-on-4 dental implants
All-on-4 dental implants are a permanently installed full arch prosthesis with all the teeth on 4 implants. Such prosthesis are used for patients with full dentures who either have all their teeth extracted or are very unhappy with them. One of the best alternatives to dentures or deteriorated teeth is to undergo an All-on-4 dental implant.
When compared with conventional dental implants, All-on-4 makes use of 4 dental implants to provide the patient with a complete permanent smile. Whereas, conventional dental implants require separate implants to be placed in each arch. Also, the recovery time needed for All-on-4 dental implants is much lesser to that of conventional dental implants.
All-on-6 dental implants
All-on-6 dental implants is a full arch prosthesis installed for a lifetime. In such prosthesis all the teeth are fixed on 6 implants. If you need to undergo an extensive teeth restoration All-on-6 dental implants are the best choice to proceed with.
All-on-6 dental implants are needed by patients with more tooth loss. Also, it is considered as the best solution for a full mouth dental implant as it requires minimal invasion when combined with the process of 3D guided surgery. By getting an All-on-6 dental implant you can regain your facial structure and chewing ability.
