What is an All-on-4 (or All-on-6)?

Dental implants are the gold standard of modern-day tooth replacement. Even though they’re frequently used for individual missing teeth, their strength and integrity make them possible to use in sets of 4-6 to replace all of your upper or lower teeth at one time.

An “All on 4” or “All on 6” fixed bridge is a hybrid prosthesis that incorporates the predictability of implants with a streamlined, minimalist restoration. All-on-4 treatments do not cover the roof of your mouth like a denture or plate. Rather, it’s an extended, multi-tooth bridge that follows the natural arch of your teeth.

Best of all, the hybrid appliance is fixed and non-removable. Similar to a traditional dental bridge. The only difference is that it’s attached to implants and replaces all of the teeth in that arch.

 

How Many Implants are Necessary?

An entire full-arch bridge may require as few as four implants, or six in cases where there’s not adequate bone density. Each of the implants is strategically placed at a key area where the bone quality allows the best support.

Since implants are stronger than natural teeth, they’re capable of withstanding the weight of multiple teeth at a time. That’s what makes it possible to use 4-6 of them to permanently support a full-arch restoration (up to 14 teeth at a time.)

 
Qualifications for All-on-4 Fixed Bridges

All-on-4 implants are great for people who don’t want to wear a traditional, removable denture/plate. Candidates also have relatively good oral health and bone support for the implants to be installed.

When it’s time to design your All-on-4 fixed bridge, Dr. Tayal will work with you to select the appropriate tooth shape, size, and color. We want your new smile to compliment your natural appearance while also enhancing aesthetics.
