Procedure of All-On-6
All-on-6 Implant Supported Dentures is a safe and quick process with high success rates. However, before the implants can be placed, you need to have your mouth and any previously dentures examined by a dentist specialist. This evaluation is needed in order to determine what size the prosthetic teeth should be, where your bite falls and what the bite forces may be, and to diagnose any other significant factors.
After this examination, 6 dental implants are placed strategically in areas with the greatest amount of bone, creating a firm support for dentures. Those 6 dental implants will provide a strong foundation for your new prosthetic teeth.
Next, the implants need about 6 to 8 months to integrate with the bone, during which time you will be able to wear temporary dentures. After 6 months, the temporary dentures can be removed and replaced with a permanent set of teeth.
