What are All-on-4, 5, 6, and 8 Dental Implants
A fixed denture is the best option for replacing a full set of missing teeth, using up to eight in each jaw. The best thing about these prostheses is that each missing tooth gets an implant. In short, a full replacement is not necessary. A minimum of four posts are enough to support a complete set of dentures themselves.
Here’s How Full Mouth Implants Work
A permanent denture can be placed on all-on-four, all-on-five, all-on-six, or all-on-eight posts placed in each jaw. These implants support a removable or permanent set of dentures. All-on-four Implant Prostheses are the most recommended for permanent replacement of missing teeth. With these, two posts are placed in the front of the jaw. The next two are placed in the back at a 45 degree angle. In cases where more support and grip for the prosthesis is required, six or even eight can be placed in the jaw. However, this is not done often, since more of them need more volume and thickness in the jaw bones.
