ALL-ON-6 FIXED PROSTHESIS
For who is the All-on-6 fixed prosthesis suitable?
For anyone who has only a few or no teeth left.
This treatment is for everyone who want a full and natural smile again.
Many people can’t get used to a denture or semi-fixed prosthesis because it is constantly moving, they can’t eat normally, must always be removed for cleaning and sleeping.
The All-on-6 treatment is becoming more and more popular because of the many benefits:
- There is no palate so the taste of food returns
- Jaws are not shrinking so that the face does ‘fall in’
- Feels very natural
- Eating without problems
- Prostheses is fixed and can’t be taken out
- No sticky paste necessary
- Regular brushing of the teeth
How does the treatment work?
For this treatment you should visit our clinic two times.
During each visit, you and your companion can stay for free in one of our modern apartments
First a CT-scan is taken in order to determine the position of the implants.
Remaining teeth are removed in order to make place for the implants.
With the all-on-6 treatment there are six implants inserted into the upper and/or lower jaw.
Because of the new techniques of implantation this is no longer a major surgery, it takes only 15-20 minutes per implant.
The insertion of implants takes place immediately after the extraction of the teeth.
For this first step of the treatment there is a visit of 1-2 days needed.
After the insertion of the implants, there is a waiting period of 3-4 months, so that the implants can properly grow into the jaw bone.
In this waiting period, you will receive a temporary denture.
After the waiting period, the fixed bridge is placed on the implants. This fixed bridge is made of 12-14 teeth and is made of porcelain.
For this second visit, you should visit our clinic five days.
In the course of these 5 days, different appointments will be necessary in the clinic.
The treatment is dependent on the thickness of the jawbone
The All-on-6 treatment may be performed only if the jawbone is strong / thick enough for impantation. If there is too little bone, first artificial bone need to be placed. In that case, the treatment will look slightly different, and the waiting period is 8 months instead of 3-4 months.
In some cases, immediately after the placement of artificial bone implants are placed (depending on how many own bone there still is present).
The placement of artificial bone in the upper jaw is usually referred to as sinus lift.
