This treatment consists of the placement of 6 to 10 implants, both for the upper and lower arches (ALL ON SIX / ALL ON SIX PLUS). In this way, the definitive prosthesis, when possible, will be done in sections to reduce tensions and improve the distribution of forces. This prosthesis will be performed:
By system (CAD / CAM) with an internal structure of titanium or zirconium. Coated by porcelain, which has the advantage of not dying with the passage of time, less wear of the prosthesis, greater aesthetics and greater biocompatibility.
In the long term, it is the most stable solution. After years of experience, this treatment has been chosen as the best one to replace teeth, after a 3D-scan analysis. It is amazing to see the transformation we can produce in just 60 minutes of surgery.
If we go a step further you are able to have the bridge fixed to the implants on the same day. (After full assessment).
This treatment consists of the placement of at least 6 implants on the upper arch and at least 4 on the lower arch (ALL ON FOUR / ALL ON FOUR PLUS)
The prosthesis is made with an internal structure of titanium and with resin teeth. The advantage it has, is that it needs fewer implants. It is more indicated in the mandible than in the upper jaw. As it has pink gum, it is reserved for cases in which the gum is not shown when smiling.
The treatment is recommended for patients who have lost all their teeth and have severe bone loss.
This consists of the placement of 2 implants in the jaw or 4 in the upper jaw that allow us to retain the denture.
This rehabilitation is recommended when there is a complete lack of bone, or when sinus lift cannot be carried out. It is also a solution for patients whose denture is loose and are looking for an affordable alternative. The over denture is supported by the gum and retained by an implant’s locator system.
The duration of this treatment is approximately 4 months for the upper jaw and 3 months for the lower jaw.
The patient will have teeth from the beginning of the treatment, if possible they will be fixed.
The treatment steps are divided into the following appointments
- Placement of implants and temporary teeth.
- Approximately 10 days later the sutures are removed and the temporary teeth are checked.
- It is necessary to wait a period of osseointegration of approximately 3 months . After that time, we check the implants and take prints to make a temporary fixed prosthesis.
This prosthesis, on the one hand serves to make a progressive loading of the implants and, on the other, to define the aesthetics we want to achieve in the definitive prosthesis (size, shape of teeth and colour). In addition, it is preserved as a “replacement” prosthesis if in the future some repairs need to be done.
- The definitive prosthesis will begin to be developed when we are sure that everything is going well. The performance of this prosthesis entails at least 2 tests to verify fit and final aesthetics and one more appointment to place the teeth.
Note: The time to complete the treatment will depend on the patient and the aesthetic needs.
After 6 months of placing the final prosthesis we will carry out a free revision, in which we will check occlusion and we will perform a clean if necessary.
After one year it is recommended another visit to check gums and prostheses, where the mouth will be thoroughly cleaned and x-rays will be taken to control the stability of the bone around the implants. These maintenance visits, for all dental implant patients, should be performed every 6 months to ensure the stability of the treatment and the early detection of possible problems.
