When do you need All-on-6® implant concept?

A 6 implant bridge is a permanent solution for complete toothlessness. With this procedure, you can get a permanent prosthesis with only 6 dental implants. It is stable and durable, and a far better alternative to traditional, removable dentures.

All-on-6 dentures are full dental implants. It is recommended for patients who have lost most of their teeth in one or both jaws.

When it comes to dental implants, low bone density is a problem way too often. However,  full arch umplant based solution fitted on 6 screws do not always require bone grafting, but if it is necessary it can be done along with sinus lift.

The All-on-6 procedure

First, based on your bone density, your dentist will evaluate if you need a bone graft or sinus lift.

On the day of the procedure, the surgeon places six dental implants into one arch under local anesthetics or under general anaesthesia upon request. The procedure typically takes around 2-3 hours per jaw.

After the surgery, if possible they will attach a temporary prosthesis to the dental implants, so during the healing period you can already enjoy a confidence-boosting smile. Please, note it is not always possible! In case of bone replacement no temporary teeth can be attached to the screws. Plus the screws must have sufficient initial stability. If the bone is not strong enough or the dentist could not tighten the screw with enough force then it is not possible toattach the temp teeth to the screws.

It is advantageous for the patinets to have temp teeth attached to the screws as it helps set/correct the bite and more comfortable than a removable one.

Most patients are able to return to work the next day. For pain relief, your dentist will usually recommend over-the-counter medications.

When it comes to implant-supported full-arch restoration with 6 screws (that is full mouth dental implants), the recovery time is usually between 4 and 6 months. If you had bone augmentation it takes 6 months until you can get the finalized All-on-6 bridge.

First, your dental implants will need to fuse with the jawbone – they will function as tooth roots. Both your jawbone and gums will change adapting to this environment. During these months, patients should avoid eating hard or chewy foods giving adequate time to their mouth to heal.

Once the dental implants fused into the jawline, you can get your permanent dental bridges over the second visit in Budapest. This visit is longer than the implant placement as inserting the abutments and fitting bridges takes massive dental lab work.

It’s crucial to prevent any infections and reduce the risk of complications. If you feel any kind of discomfort, it’s important to contact your dentist.

Lots of patients ask at our Dental Clinic in Budapest if dental implants can fail. Though it might happen, it’s important to note that failure is generally caused by bacteria and plaque leading to infections or gum disease and peridontitis.

Good oral hygiene is important not only during the healing period, but after you got your new permanent crowns as well. These include:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice a day
  • Flossing daily
  • Cleaning hard-to-reach places

 All-on-6 dentures are great since they are fixed – you don’t need adhesives anymore, also, they will not deteriorate over time.
