Which is better All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants procedure?

While researching dental implants as an option for replacing missing teeth, you may learn about both “all-on-4” and “all-on-6” dental implant procedures. With the traditional full mouth reconstruction, dentists in the past would need to use 8 to 10 dental implants per arch in order to provide enough foundation for the missing teeth to be replaced. With the “All on” procedure, the dental implants are inserted into the jawbone at an angle which provides more coverage in the jawbone to have a replacement teeth cemented on.

All-on-4 dental implants

All-on-4 dental implants technology is a patented development of the American-Swiss company Nobel, in 2003. This involves placing four implants per arch without grafting and sinus liftings: two front area vertical implants, and two back area angled implants. Thanks to angled implants, stable prosthetic force distribution can be provided.

If you’ve already decided to take a dive in the “All on” dental procedure, you may be wondering just what the difference may be between the all-on-4 or all-on-6 dental implants.

The clearest difference between all-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants is the number of implants that are placed in the mouth. The more implants you have, the more strength and stability are provided for your jawbone. Each dental implant that is placed in your jaw helps reinforce the bone it’s implanted in. Your teeth actually serve an unseen purpose: they help keep the bones in the jaw stable. Without teeth, the jawbones begin to deteriorate. For this reason, sometimes people who wear dentures for a long time may appear to have a sunken jaw when they take out their dentures. This can make people look much older than they are. When people have dental implants, the jawbone is stimulated and maintains its strength, preventing this sunken appearance.

All-on-6 dental implants

All-on-6 dental implants provide a stronger, more stable base for the prosthetic dental arch, resulting in a longer-lasting, more comfortable smile. Taking into consideration the mechanics of biting and chewing, additional stability and a more even distribution of pressure may help extend the life of your prosthetic arch. However All-on-6 is not always better procedure than all-on-4. Patients who don’t have enough bone strength to withstand the pressure of the additional two dental implants may benefit more with the All-on-4 dental implants procedure. The best way to decide which option is better for you, this is to speak to our professional team at our dental centre in Turkey after a full consultation and examination of your jawbone has been made.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Procedure Cost in Turkey: Benefits are worth more!

The cost of your implants depends on several factors, including the brand of implants and type of prosthesis. The costs of an All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implant treatments varies significantly from €4.000,- to over  €8.500,- which is cause for confusion among many patients who visit us for a consultation.

About the All-on-4 / All-on-6 Prosthesis Method:

There are 3 different prothesis options on the All-on-4 / All-on-6 systems:

  • Screw retained porcelain crowns: A metal framework with layered porcelain in tooth and tissue colors.
  • Screw retained zirconia crowns: A milled zirconia framework with layered porcelain in tooth and tissue colors.
  • Hybrid Prosthesis: A milled titanium framework with layered composite in tooth and tissue colors.

Hybrid Prosthesis vs. Implant Bridge: What’s the Difference?

By this point, you’re probably wondering what exactly a Hybrid Prosthesis is. It’s not quite the same as an implant bridge. Essentially, it’s just a long bridge that looks like natural teeth. This is possible using multiple implants that are permanently placed within your mouth. You’ll have a temporary bridge at first, which will soon be replaced with a permanent set of teeth. With this procedure, you’ll never have to take your teeth out to clean them like dentures. Instead, good oral habits at home will keep your new teeth clean and healthy. Further, these teeth will support the bone structures in your face just like real teeth.

Hybrid Prosthesis

Unlike implant supported fixed bridges, hybrid prostheses replace missing alveolar height by means of pink composite resin used for teeth retention. Hybrid prostheses generally require fewer implants, and alveolar ridge morphology is not as critical because implants do not have to be placed “exactly where the teeth are.” This is due to the use of angle modification abutments (i.e., multiunit abutments). In other words, when there is a need to replace teeth but not alveolar height, implant fixed prosthesis is a viable option. When alveolar morphology is less than ideal due to extensive bone resorption, either in some areas or the complete ridge, the hybrid restoration is a good option.

Implant Bridge

When treating edentulous patients, an alternative to hybrid prosthesis is the using of implant supported fixed prosthesis (i.e., implant bridges). This modality entails placement of more implants (six to eight) to provide multiple implant bridges per arch. Adequate alveolar bone height and width are essential for implant placement. Advanced bone loss can compromise the esthetic and biomechanical aspects of the implant prosthesis due to elongated clinical crowns and uneven prosthetic contours.

A Hybrid Prosthesis, sometimes called Teeth-in-One Day, is an innovative type of implant surgery used for teeth replacement. Our dentists work alongside an oral surgeon who takes your teeth out and places the implants. Dr. Fatih Erkun at Dental Excellence Turkey has led the industry at the placement of these prostheses for years.

All-on-6

A state of the art treatment called Hybrid Prosthesis; you can go from having no teeth to a full set of permanent teeth in a single day.  We’re able to offer implant teeth in one day at an affordable rate at dental centre in Turkey.

1. Hybrid bridges can restore tooth and tissue loss as to establish proper speech and chewing. They help maintain tooth, bite and jaw alignment by preventing remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

2. Because of the less stress distribution, temporomandibular joint takes less force. As result it’s beneficial against temporomandibular disorders.

3. Long gaps where multiple teeth are missing can be treated effectively with implant supported bridges.

4. If changes have occurred in your mouth in relation to the hybrid, your dentist can remove it to have changes made to it.
