The All-on-6 is an innovative dental technique that replaces full arches of teeth in the mouth with strategically placed dental implants. This process is generally performed to restructure a patient's mouth that has lost a significant number of teeth in the oral cavity. The All-on-6 dental implants offer a fixed and permanent method of reinstating a complete set of teeth. Additionally, this technique provides a perfect solution for patients with low jawbone density and functions similar to their natural teeth. At Family Smiles Fort Lee, with All-on-6 dental implants, we deliver our patients a healthier and robust replacement for dentures.
What Are All-on-6 Dental Implants?
The All-on-6 procedure creates a stable foundation for prosthetic tooth replacement appliances such as dentures. In this technique, six implants are strategically placed in the lower or upper jawbone to support prosthetic teeth in place permanently. This treatment is designed for patients with sufficient bone density and is an alternative to traditional dental implants.
Who Needs All-on-6 Dental Implants?
The All-On-6 dental implant procedure is suggested for patients with an entire arch of missing teeth. It also helps patients with a few missing teeth and wishing to avail a complete arch dental implant by removing the existing teeth. The All-On-6 treatment delivers a stable, long-term alternative to conventional dentures.

Process of All-on-6 Dental Implants
After performing a comprehensive examination using digital X-rays and a 3D Cone Beam CT-Scan, our dentist will evaluate the mouth's structures. The All-on-6 technique generally does not require a bone graft.
With the assistance of computer-aided technology, we will surgically place the dental implants in the pre-decided locations in the mouth. A temporary denture can then be attached to the implants when they heal to give you a beautiful smile on the same day.
In the first three months of the implant placement, the mouth will begin to heal. The bone and gums will change shape to grow around the new implant. During this time, patients should avoid eating hard or very chewy foods. After the dental implants are fused into the jawbone, a permanent appliance like a dental bridge or removable dentures is placed over the implants.
