All-on-six or -Eight Procedure for Permanent Fixation of Prosthesis

The procedure creates a permanent prosthesis by using six or eight dental implants which act as an anchor for a bridge cemented denture. Six or eight implants are placed in the lower or upper jawbone to permanently anchor prosthetic teeth.

The treatment is recommended for patients with a full arch of missing teeth or who are planning to have any remaining teeth removed and replaced with implants. The all-on-six or -eight treatment offers a stable, long-termalternative to traditional dentures.
After study of your bone architecture, your specialist will recommend the most suitable option for you.

This technique is ideal for those patients who want a maximum of stability and security. It is designed for fixing dentures with ceramic materials and monolithic zirconia that offer the maximum natural beauty to the smile and maximum masticatory capacity. These materials are also biocompatible with the soft tissues of the mouth and facilitate cleaning and maintenance
without major complications.
These types of materials allow the permanent cementing of the prostheses without the necessity of having to remove them in the future. The procedure is performed in an operating room under IV sedation carried out by a certified anesthesiologist who has specialized in this type of surgery.
