All-on-6® dental implants are quite similar to All-on-4® dental implants with one important difference: instead of using four implants to affix the arch, six implants are installed.
The All-on-6® dental implants procedure is still not that well known in the field of dentistry as a whole. As well, only a small number of highly specialized prosthodontics practitioners have been trained to perform this cutting-edge procedure - a procedure that can drastically shrink the treatment and recovery time as well as keep overall treatment costs affordable.
Your choice of Los Angeles prosthodontics treatment provider can influence how much you pay, how long your treatment takes and your satisfaction with the results of your treatment.
What Are All-on-6® Dental Implants?
The All-on-6® dental implants procedure is often recommended for patients who have a significant number of missing or broken teeth. Patients who have low bone density or bone volume in the affected area can also be good candidates for the All-on-6® procedure.
The procedure uses six dental implants affixed at an angle to the existing bone of the jaw. These six implants are installed first and then the dental arch is permanently secured to them.
Because the All-on-6® dental implants procedure does not typically require any bone grafting, it can typically be performed in a single day.
This means you can walk into your Los Angeles prosthodontics provider's office that morning and walk out that same afternoon with a brand new set of All-on-6® dental implants! Often it can be done in under four hours and you can go on with the rest of your day without the need for any recovery downtime.
Best of all, since All-on-6® dental implants are permanent and they look and feel quite natural, you won't have any special maintenance or cleaning chores to do to maintain your treatment results.
How Much Do All-on-6® Dental Implants Cost?
As of the time of publication, the average cost in Los Angeles is $20,000 to $50,000 for All-on-6® dental implants. The cost range reflects the fact that no two dental implants patients are ever exactly alike.
For example, some patients may require more advance preparation for the gums and teeth, including tooth or root extraction or other preparatory work. Still other patients may need to have prior dental hardware removed or adjusted, such as bridges, dentures, crowns or fillings, before the All-on-6® dental implants can be successfully installed.
The good news is that All-on-6® dental implants allow you to walk out with a beautiful, straight, white, natural smile that is comfortable and natural-feeling.
Post-procedure, patients report that All-on-6® dental implants also helps strengthen their bite (up to 70 percent worth!), more readily discern food's taste and temperature, enjoy eating and drinking more, feel more confident speaking and smiling in social and work situations, enhance natural facial features and enjoy life more.
Oral health-wise, All-on-6® dental implants are also known to assist with stopping further bone deterioration in the jaw by supporting the remaining bone to stay strong and healthy.
