Difference Between All-on-4 and All-on-6 Dental Implants – Which is the better option?

At Dental Center 4Smile, we pride ourselves on providing the most advanced dental solutions tailored to the unique needs of our patients. Under the expert care of Croatian dentist Ivan Antolković, Dental Center 4Smile offers advanced All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implant treatments. Both therapies are designed to restore the functionality and aesthetics of an entire edentulous jaw.

Understanding when to use each treatment is crucial for optimal results.

Understanding All-on-4 and All-on-6 Dental Implant Treatments

All-on-4 dental implants involve placing four strategically positioned dental implants into the jawbone. When there isn’t enough bone in length and width or when the sinuses do not allow normal dental implant placement, we use the All-on-4 method, where two dental implants are placed at a special angle. This method provides the restoration of the entire dental arch securely fixed with only four dental implants. Within 24 to 72 hours, the patient receives fixed temporary teeth, which are worn for 4 to 6 months.

All-on-6 dental implants, on the other hand, use six dental implants to support the entire dental arch. The additional dental implants provide extra stability and a more even distribution of bite forces, which can be beneficial for certain patients. Within 24 to 72 hours, the patient receives fixed temporary teeth, which are worn for 4 to 6 months.

When to Use the All-on-4 Dental Implant Treatment

All-on-4 dental implants are an excellent choice for patients who:

Have limited bone density: Since All-on-4 dental implants are placed at an angle, they require less bone density compared to traditional dental implants. This is suitable for patients who have experienced significant bone loss.

Want a quick, fixed, and high-quality solution for their edentulous jaw

When to Use the All-on-6 Dental Implant Treatment

We always recommend All-on-6 if possible due to the advantages of additional dental implants:

Increased stability: Two additional dental implants provide firmer support for the prosthetic arch, reducing the risk of movement and improving the longevity of the restoration.

Better force distribution: Six dental implants distribute bite forces more evenly across the jawbone, which can help preserve bone structure and ensure a more natural chewing experience.

If possible, at Dental Center 4Smile in Europe, we always choose All-on-6

Any patient who is a candidate and meets the health criteria can opt for the All-on-6 dental implant therapy.
