It is possible to reconstruct the jaws with the All on six methods. This includes the placement of 6 implants in the bone and a fixed denture with 12 or 14 teeth. The implant method All on 6 guarantees greater stability because of the larger number of implants used.
Implantology All on 6: how the procedure is performed
After a detailed examination and analysis of radiological images, the procedure is performed under anesthesia or conscious sedation. During the operation, a fixed denture is installed, with 6 implants attached to the bone of the edentulous jaw. After a period of integration, we continue to install a fixed prosthesis, called a Toronto Bridge.
This technique allows the patient to get completely new teeth in a short time, with perfect chewing function and natural-looking aesthetics.
Advantages of the All on Six method
- Non-invasive procedure;
- No discomfort after surgery;
- Quick and short procedure (optimal for elderly patients or patients with health problems);
- Application possible even if the patient has little bone tissue;
- It is not necessary to use additional adhesives to fasten the prosthesis;
- Excellent aesthetic results.
Toronto Bridge is a convenient and non-invasive solution that fully restores a complete arch with permanent teeth using just 4 or 6 implants. From an economic point of view, it is an ideal solution for patients with edentulous jaws wear removable dentures.
Traditional implantology involves the replacement of each tooth with an implant and a crown. On the other hand, the All on Four and All on Six methods require one fixed denture placed on four or six implants, guaranteeing the same masticatory function.
Artificial gum, which is an integral part of the permanent Toronto Bridge prosthesis, has very important functions. First, it eliminates the effect of a “long teeth” smile. Secondly, thanks to the use of this type of “flange”, it is easy to “cover” these implants. The result of the Toronto Bridge is a fixed denture in composite or acrylate, although it can also be made of ceramic on request.
Post-intervention maintenance All on 6
To ensure the durability of the implants and the Toronto Bridge it is necessary to maintain good oral hygiene. Regular checks at the dentist are crucial as well as the checking of all the parts of prostheses and implants. The patient can normally continue with daily cleaning of the teeth with the help of a Waterpik and a mild toothbrush. Once a year, patients should go to the dental office to examine the implants and the Toronto Bridge. The dentist should remove it and clean it thoroughly.
