All-on-6’s are a teeth replacement system that refers to ‘all’ the teeth in either the upper or lower jaw being replaced with a bridge supported by ‘six’ dental implants.
The dental implants are inserted into the jaw bone, eventually integrating with the bone in a process called osseointegration. Once this has happened, the implant provides a strong, sturdy support for false teeth – either a single crown or multiple teeth in a bridge.

What is the procedure for All-on-6’s?
Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination, taking x-rays and scans to assess the anatomical structures in your mouth and the extent (if any) of bone loss. If you are suitable for the All-on-6 procedure, impressions will be made of your mouth to send to the Laboratory who will manufacture your new teeth.
- Treatment Day
The procedure can be carried out under intravenous sedation or local anaesthetic. It typically takes around 2 hours per jaw. If you need to have any extractions, these can be done at the same time, and the areas around the extraction sites cleansed thoroughly.
The dental implants will be inserted into the jaw. Four will be placed in the front of the jaw, and two, placed at an angle, at the rear. A temporary arch of teeth will be placed, which is lighter than a permanent restoration, and will allow your mouth time to heal.
- Permanent Restoration
After a few months, you will return to your dentist to have your permanent teeth fixed.
The aim of dental implants is to act as tooth roots, dispersing similar force around the mouth to secure teeth structure and facilitate oral activity, such as swallowing, speaking and eating. Your teeth play a pivotal role in forming your facial structure, so restoring a damaged smile can enhance and improve your entire appearance.
If you have lost any of your teeth then, you will undoubtedly want healthy and natural-looking teeth replacements, which can give you a beautiful face shape and smile. Treatment with the All-On-6/All-On-8 dental implants system is able to provide you with the strong, beautiful and stable smile you have been searching for, since your teeth become lost or seriously damaged.
The All on 6:
- Involves 6 dental implants per each dental arch.
- If there are remaining teeth that can be saved then, they will not be removed only restored.
- The prosthesis is a fix bridge built in either porcelain noble metal or porcelain zirconium, which feels, look and act like natural teeth.
- The prosthesis is permanently cemented.
- If the jawbone is not in an adequate level then, bone grafting/sinus lift will be necessary.
