As we reach certain ages we can face several problems, one of the many problems our elderly face is loss. Whether it is the loss of friends, family, maybe limbs and in some cases we can loss teeth. It’s not always simple or possible to have some of these replace, but in the case of teeth we have options.
Every year new medical techniques are developed or old techniques are improved. In recent years a Portuguese dentist Paulo Maló, improved a rehabilitation technique that revolutionize the dental industry.
A rehabilitation technique that dentist have recently develop is the all on 4, all on 6 or on all 8 treatment. How does this procedure work? How can this dental procedure save your teeth, your mouth?
Dental Procedure: All on 4 – 6 – 8
In the 1993 the Portuguese dentist Paulo Maló together with his medical and clinical research team developed the All-on-4 technique. An innovative technique that revolutionized the dental industry, today’s dental clinics recognized this medical approach as one of the most significant medical advances in the field of Implant Dentistry.
In this dental procedure your dentist will first examine your bone density, confirming if you are a suitable candidate for the surgery. Your dentist might use a Cone Beam CT Scan; this system offers patients a numerous benefits, doctors use to identify inner structures, not visible by plain sight. In the case of dentist they use this machine in the following dental procedures:
- Identifying Bone Density
- Implant-Supported Dentures
After the x-rays are taken, your dentist will examine the density of your jaw bone; for the implementation to be successful, bone density has to be sufficient.
However, in the case of bone loss or tooth loss; Bone Graft Surgery must be performed before the implants are placed.
In some cases, due to health reasons (diabetes, heart condition or others) the implant surgery will not be able to be perform. If you do not need the bone graft surgery and do not have health problems, your dentist will be able to place the implants.
The all on 4, all on 6, all on 8, treatment can be performed; this procedure will provide the patient a permanent screw that will retained your new set of teeth.
All on 4
The all-on-4 Dental Implant involves placing 4 dental implants through your jaw, either on the upper or bottom jaw, the 2 center dental implants are placed at an angle helping you avoid a sinus lift at times. The fixed plate for this procedure is of acrylic material and has an artificial gum line. Through these 4 dental implants, your denture will be more stable, not shifting direction and offering you an affordable solution to your oral problem.
All on 6
The all-on-6 Dental Implant involves placing 6 implants through your jaw, the difference between an all on 4 and all on 6, beside the number of implants, is that it involves a horse shoe shaped porcelain bridge and does not have an artificial gum line. These fixed prosthesis, will allow your mouth to perform all the previous functions it use to do.
All on 8
The all-on-8 Dental Implant involves placing 8 dental implants through your jaw; most dentists consider this the most reliable full mouth dental implant option; why you may ask? Well, remember our mouth contain 32 teeth each with its roots, these individual roots are what makes our teeth strong and stay in their place and helps reduce bone loss.
The more implants the dentist places in the mouth reconstruction treatment, the closest he will be to restoring the function of natural teeth. The problem is not all patients are suitable candidates for this major oral surgery; either because of bone deficiency or because of health issues, this is usually determined with a CT scan.
