All-on-6 vs. All-on-4 Dental Implants: Which should you choose?

Are you thinking about getting dental implants to fix your smile and feel better about your teeth? All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants are two popular choices for people who want to replace a whole row of teeth. But what makes them different? Let’s break down why an All-on-6 dental implant solution might be the right pick for you.

All-on-6 Dental Implants

All-on-4 Dental Implants

Stability and Strength:

All-on-6 dental implants use six implants for each row of teeth, making them stronger and more stable than All-on-4, which only uses four implants. This extra support helps keep your implants in place for your new teeth stay put for a long time.

Bone Preservation:

With All-on-6 dental implants, the pressure from chewing is spread out across six implants, which is like spreading weight evenly on a sturdy table. This helps keep your jawbone healthy and strong, and less load is placed on each individual implant compared to only 4. Having an implant in your jawbone can also reduce the likelihood of your bone shrinking in those areas.

Better Looks and Function:

Imagine a foundation with six posts versus one with four. The foundation with six posts is likely to be more stable and look better. That’s similar to how All-on-6 implants work. The extra implants help distribute the chewing force more evenly, making it easier to eat, talk, and smile. Plus, having more support means your new teeth can be positioned in a way that looks and feels more natural.

Quick Recovery:

All-on-6 implants might let you attach temporary teeth right after surgery, like putting training wheels on a bike. This means you won’t have to wait long to show off your new smile, and you can still eat and talk comfortably while your permanent teeth are being made. Our patients always leave with temporary bridges on the same day of treatment.

Lasting Results:

Think of All-on-6 implants as a sturdy house built with more support. The extra implants make your new teeth stronger and more durable, so they’re less likely to break or need fixing in the future. This can save you time and money down the road, making it a smart investment for your smile.

Method of placement:

Typically, All-on-4 implant solutions are placed conventionally with bone reduction and, “eyeballing” where those implants will go. Even though All-on-6 implant solutions can also be placed conventionally, we only use the Computer Guided process, which is non-invasive, precise, quick, virtually painless and conserves your bone.

In short, while both All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants can give you a brand-new smile, All-on-6 implants offer many extra advantages like stability, bone preservation, better looks and function, quick recovery, and long-lasting results. It’s important to have a consultation done to figure out which option is best for you based on your needs.
