All on 6 Implant
All on 6 (All on Six) Implant Technique
All on six implant technique; It is based on the procedure of placing 6 implants in the upper jaw and 6 implants in the lower jaw.
With the all-on-six implant technique, a permanent fixed prosthesis can be applied to the lower jaw in at least 5 weeks and the upper jaw within a minimum of 12 weeks. This method, which allows the dental prosthesis to be fixed on the same day, is an advanced technology technique. It is a suitable technique for our patients who had bone loss, especially in the posterior tooth areas, to use fixed teeth.
All on Six implants are a dental procedure used to reconstruct a person’s mouth when one or both jaws have lost a significant number of teeth. This procedure gives an individual the option to replace all of their teeth with six natural looking and feeling dental implants.
