The Difference Between All-On-Four, All-On-6 And All-On-8

All-On-4, All-On-6, and All-On-8 are titles of three dental implant options, each of which serves to reconstruct a patient’s smile completely. You may be wondering what the differences are among these three options, so we’ll help make that clear.

The “4, 6, and 8” represent the number of dental implants that will be inserted into the jawbone. How do we determine which option is right for you? We use cutting-edge technology to gather the most precise and accurate reading of your specific bone structure. The quality, volume, and quantity of your bone are determined through our 3-D imaging and thoroughly studied by the doctor.

All-On-4 Vs. All-On-6 Vs. All-On-8

Patient’s often wondered if the All-On-Four is a better procedure than the All-On-6 or All-On-8. The answer is no. There is no better procedure than another; we are just cautious in assigning you the correct procedure according to what your 3-D image presents. To further explain, we are more apt to advise an All-On-8 for a patient with a more narrow, less sustainable jawbone. Why? Because as you may have gathered, an increased number of dental implants means an increased amount of stability. When a healthy, substantial jawbone is present, an All-On-4 is most often the prescribed procedure.

We then take our consensus and use the 3-D images to pre-manufacture your teeth and pre-perform the procedure itself. This process will benefit you in many ways. Not only will it ensure the strength and longevity of your smile, but it will also allow you to go home with your new smile the same day you come in.

Replacing Missing Teeth with All-On-4, All-On-6, All-On-8

Are you wondering what a good candidate for an All-On-4, All-On-6, or All-On-8 procedure looks like? Typically, patients who present a significant tooth loss or decay are considered ideal All-On-4, 6, or 8 candidates. In addition, any patients who suffer from Periodontal Disease and/or other gum disease forms are likely to be considered for this procedure.

We like to make it a point to assure our patients that they are doing the best thing for their smile and their overall health by taking advantage of one of these dental implant procedures. Oftentimes, a patient with enough teeth to get by will hesitate to come in for a procedure like this. However, it is essential to note that tooth loss or decay is often the result of Periodontal Disease or some underlying issue.

Tooth loss and decay could be detrimental to a person’s oral health and general well-being. Undergoing an All-On-4, All-On-6, or All-On-8 procedure is a guarantee that the patient will get as close to authentic, healthy teeth as they are ever going to get. When there is tooth loss or decay, our expertise combined with these specific implants will allow the patient to obtain the same strength and stability as they would have with natural teeth.

Don’t hesitate any longer. We are well-versed in implant dentistry, and we are confident that you will leave here wondering why you didn’t come in sooner!
