Dental implants are inserted into your bone in place of natural tooth roots. They also provide support to the teeth/denture/bridge. Together, the implant and the fixed denture work like your natural teeth.
When 6 or 8 implants or “tooth roots” are used to support the upper or lower arch, the system is called “All-on-6″ or” All-on-8″. Know the difference between All-on-6 and All-on-8 dental implants.
Dental implants are an improvement over conventional removable dentures because:
To make the implant site as healthy as possible, some basic procedures may be done. These include RCT, scaling, and filling.
A minimum bone height and width are a must to support the implants. If you have bone loss, your dentist may recommend a bone graft surgery, which helps bone formation.
It takes four to six months for the bone to grow and be ready for implants.
The dentist will give you local anesthesia or conscious sedation. Implants will be inserted in your bone on top of which fixed denture/ dental bridge is fitted.
You can eat soft food as soon as the effect of anesthesia wears off.
The implant and the bone integrate with each other for 3 – 6 months. This process of healing is called “Osseointegration“.
After the healing is complete, the porcelain denture is placed which can withstand stronger biting forces. You can skip this step if your biting force is not strong.
|“All-on-4” Vs “All-on-6/ 8”|
|Number of Implants||4||6/8|
|Bone Grafting & Sinus Lift||Not required||Maybe required|
|Implant Angle||2 implants angled at 45°||All implants vertical|
All-on-6 and All-on-8 are similar in every way except for the number of implants. All-on-8 implants distribute the weight of the fixed denture better because of more number of implants.
All-on-8 implants are chosen over All-on-6 implants when the bone is too soft which may make the denture unstable. Here, 8 implants provide better support and keep the denture stable.
All-on-4 implants can be placed in your bone even you have poor bone quality and eliminate bone graft surgery. However, if one implant fails, three implants are unable to support the arch. This causes the arch to become non-functional.
In All-on-six or All-on-eight implants, the arch stays functional even if one implant fails.
All-on-4 procedure requires a minimum bone width of 5 mm in the jaw (maxilla). Nobel Biocare

Yes. Some clinics in Mexico regularly treat patients from the States and Canada. Observe diligence while choosing the clinic for your dental implants. Board certification, qualification and accredited clinics are signal of quality dental treatment.
Diet and hygiene are crucial in ensuring healthy implants.
Eat soft and easy to chew foods until the implant site is completely healed. Avoid hard and sticky foods like nuts, candies, cheese, and meat.
Good oral hygiene prevents infections and implant failure. Brush twice daily with a soft brush without hurting your implant site. Rinse your mouth with a non-alcoholic mouthwash after every meal.
Smoking and chewing tobacco should be avoided at all costs. They may delay the healing and cause infection.
Yes, some dentists may provide 2 – 5 year warranty on their dental work, which is subject to meeting terms and conditions of the clinic.
