All-on-4 / All-on-6 Methode
If at least two adjacent teeth are missing, particularly thorough planning must be carried out in advance. If a fixed solution is desired, dental implants are the only option that makes sense in the long term.
First, a 3D planning is performed and then the options are discussed together with the patient.
It is particularly important that special consideration is given to anatomical constrictions, such as nerves or maxillary sinus.
In the case of particularly challenging anatomical conditions, or if the procedure must be performed in an absolutely minimally invasive manner (for example, when taking medication to thin the blood), it is possible to perform implant placement using 3d-planned drilling templates. For more details see 3D-navigated implantation.
REPLACE ALL TEETH
Even if all teeth are missing in one or both jaws, there are several options for creating a fixed or removable denture with implants.
A distinction is made between implant-supported bridges, or the possibility of supporting existing dentures on implants for better retention.
For implant-supported bridges, so-called All-on-4 and All-on-6 concepts have become established internationally. Here, 4 or 6 implants are inserted in the upper or lower jaw in a special treatment concept to enable a fixed bridge to be placed on them.
In addition, there are also individual solutions that are adapted to the special wishes and the individual anatomical conditions.
Extensive planning in advance is already the first important step for successful end result, with which you are satisfied in the long term.
