Introduction
Before we dive into All-on-6 implant-supported dental prosthetics and oral rehabilitation, let’s look at the state of oral health. The extent of dental problems people experience varies greatly depending on age, geographic location, socioeconomic status, and lifestyle. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 70-80% of adults suffer from tooth decay. Periodontal disease is the third most common chronic disease in the world. 30% of people over 65 have no teeth. A 2019 National Dental Institute (OFI) survey found that 75% of 12-year-old Hungarian children have cavities. 80% of the adult population suffers from periodontal disease. 20% of people over 65 have no teeth, and 52% have missing teeth. These statistics show that a significant proportion of people have problems with their teeth.

What are the options for replacing missing teeth?
This article’s main topic is implant-supported dental prosthetics, specifically All-on-6 oral rehabilitation. However, before we delve into that topic, let’s look at the different options available to those who want to replace missing or damaged teeth.

There are two main types of tooth replacement options:
1. Traditional Tooth Replacement
Removable dentures. These can be removed and cleaned by the patient. They are typically made of acrylic or metal and can be either full or partial.
Fixed bridges. These are bridges that are permanently attached to the teeth. They are typically made of porcelain or metal and can replace one or more missing teeth.

2. Implant-Supported Tooth Replacement
– One-phase implant-supported dental prosthetics involve placing one or more implants in the jawbone and attaching a crown, bridge, or denture to the implants.
– Two-phase implant-supported dental prosthetics. This involves placing the implants in the jawbone and then waiting several months for the implants to heal and integrate with the bone. Once the implants have healed, a crown, bridge, or denture is attached.
– All-on-4 or All-on-6 technology. These are specific types of implant-supported dental prosthetics used to replace all teeth in an arch. All-on-4 uses four implants, while All-on-6 uses six implants.

What is an All-on-6 dental implant treatment?
All-on-6 dental implants are a procedure that involves placing six implants in the jawbone per arch. These implants support a fixed, fully functional, and permanent denture. The procedure involves precise planning of the exact location of the implants, which are then inserted into the jawbone to ensure stability and long-term durability. All-on-6 oral rehabilitation is ideal for people with complete tooth loss who want to regain their natural chewing function.

Here are the critical points about All-on-6 dental implants:
– Six implants are placed in the jawbone per arch.
– The implants support a fixed, fully functional, and permanent denture.
– The procedure involves precise planning of the exact location of the implants.
– All-on-6 dental implants are an ideal solution, but they need nearly perfect jawbones.

What is the difference between All-on-4 and All-on-6?
The main difference between the two techniques is the number of implants.
All-on-4
– 4 implants are placed in each jaw.
– The two posterior implants are larger and placed at an angle for greater stability.
– Ideal for those who want a quick, affordable solution and have sufficient bone mass and quality.
All-on-6
– 6 implants are placed in each jaw.
– All implants are placed perpendicular to the jawbone.
– Recommended for those who want a quick, slightly more expensive solution.
– Ideal when the bone quality and quantity are adequate but not as good as required for All-on-4.
Other differences
– Cost: All-on-4 is typically less expensive than All-on-6.
– Treatment time: All-on-4 can be completed in a single day while
– Stability: All-on-6 is generally considered to be more stable than All-on-4.

How does the All-on-6 oral rehabilitation procedure occur?
All-on-6 dental implant treatment has been available in Hungary since the early 2000s. Our clinic was one of the first to offer this treatment, and we have extensive experience in its successful application.

The basic concept of the procedure has remained the same since its inception, but the technology and materials used have continuously evolved. Implantologists have a wealth of experience using this technique to achieve excellent results. All-on-6 oral rehabilitation is a three-step process for patients.
First Visit
– Free Consultation
– Sedation or anesthesia (optional, at an additional cost)
– Extraction of teeth unsuitable for prosthetic treatment (up to 4 teeth; additional fees apply for more than 4)
– Preparation for implant placement
– Insertion of six implants
Second Visit (7 Days Later):
– Check-up of the implanted implants
– Suture removal
– Taking impressions for the final denture
Third Visit (2-3 Weeks Later)
– Cementation of the final denture
– All-on-6 eliminates the need for temporary dentures, immediately providing patients with a permanent solution. The denture is made of porcelain or zirconia and can be either fixed (non-removable) or removable. This dental prosthesis requires sufficient bone quantity and quality and takes approximately 20 days to complete.

We can provide an accurate quote based on a panoramic X-ray taken over three months ago.

What are the advantages of All-on-6 implant-supported oral rehabilitation?
All-on-6 oral rehabilitation offers several advantages over other implant-based dental prosthetics. However, it is essential to note that certain conditions must be met for this treatment to be applicable.

Fewer Implants. The most significant advantage is that it requires fewer implants than other options, such as one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation, which requires 8-12 implants per jaw, while All-on-6 requires only six.
Less Invasive Surgery. Fewer implants naturally mean less overall burden on the patient during the procedure.
Lower Cost. Fewer implants generally translate to lower costs, although the complexity of the treatment can affect the final price.
Potential Bone Preservation.  Under certain conditions, the strategic placement of the six implants can optimize bone utilization, reducing the need for bone grafting.
Faster Treatment. Not only does the implant placement take less time, but the fabrication of the final denture is also faster. With traditional, one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation, the patient receives a temporary denture, and the permanent denture can only be made after six months. With All-on-6 oral rehabilitation, the patient leaves with a final denture after three weeks. That is a significant advantage in itself!
Stability and Security. When properly placed, the implants in All-on-6 provide greater stability, creating an effect similar to having more implants.
Other advantages:
– Improved chewing ability
– Improved speech
– Improved self-confidence
– Improved overall quality of life

All-on-6 implant-based oral rehabilitation is suitable for patients with sufficient bone mass and quality looking for a quick, stable, cost-effective solution to replace all their missing teeth. If you are considering All-on-6 treatment, talk to your dentist to see if this option suits you.

What are the disadvantages of All-on-6 implant-supported dental prosthetics
Earlier, we listed the most essential advantages of All-on-6 implant-based full dental restorations. However, accuracy requires us also to discuss the possible disadvantages.ű

Not suitable for everyone – The jawbone’s condition, quality, and quantity are crucial for this type of implant-supported denture. It is only ideal for patients with sufficient bone mass or those who can undergo bone augmentation.
Requires high-level expertise and experience – The correct placement of the six implants requires extensive knowledge and oral surgery expertise. Determining the location and method of implant placement carries a higher risk than traditional implant-supported dentures.
Limited long-term data – While success rates are promising, the All-on-6 technique is relatively new compared to traditional implant-supported dentures. The All-on-4 procedure was developed in 1998 by Dr. Paulo Malo, a Portuguese implantologist. The first procedure was performed in Lisbon.

All-on-6 oral rehabilitation has been available in Hungary for about a decade. Our institution was among the first to provide such dentures. The procedure has been continuously evolving since then, and dentists are gaining more and more experience in its successful application. A qualified dentist or oral surgeon can determine if your jawbone suits the All-on-6 denture. Choosing the most appropriate implant-supported denture solution is based on your options, individual needs, and specific conditions.

How much does All-on-6 oral rehabilitation cost?
The cost of All-on-6 oral rehabilitation is generally lower than that of two-phase or one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation, mainly due to the fewer implants required. The exact price depends on the doctor, the clinical setting, the patient’s condition, the number of removable teeth, and several other factors.

The price of All-on-6 oral rehabilitation is around 2,000,000 HUF. We can provide an exact quote and treatment plan during a personal consultation or based on a panoramic X-ray taken over three months ago.
Factors affecting the cost:
– Dentist’s experience and reputation. More experienced and reputable dentists may charge more.
– Clinic location. Clinics in major cities or tourist areas may charge more.
– Patient’s condition. Patients with complex cases may require additional procedures, increasing the cost.
– Number of teeth we must remove. More teeth mean a higher cost.
– Type of implant and materials used. The cost can vary depending on the brand and quality of the implant and materials used.
Additional costs:
– General anesthesia. If the patient requests, we do implant placement under general anesthesia, but the cost of it is not included in the price of All-on-4 oral rehabilitation.
– Bone grafting. If the patient does not have enough bone mass, bone grafting may be necessary, which adds to the cost.

Summary
All-on-6 oral rehabilitation is an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth since it has only one significant disadvantage and many advantages. Unfortunately, this dental implant-based restoration is primarily for those with adequate dental bone quality. Or those whose bone deficiency is replaceable with bone replacement.
