“All on 4/6” CONCEPT
All of four/six concept is considered to be the greatest discovery in modern dentistry, since 1978, when dental implants were approved by Swedish ministry of health.
For a long period of time, complex therapy of edentulous patients was without the right solution – therapy procedures demanded often complicated surgical interventions, like nerve transposition, bone grafting etc. Than, a young Portuguese dentist, Paulo Malo developed “all on 4/6” concept (patented in 1995), and completely changed modern dentistry.
Today, edentulous patients have the possibility to get a fixed prosthodontic work, without complicated surgical intervention. The secret is in tilting distal implants in relation to the occlusal plane, so there is much bigger surface of implant-bone contact, and in straight and angled multi-unit abutments. Patient often misunderstand the concept, so we need to accent that all on 4 and 6 are not dentures.
The concept is reccomended with :
- Edentulous patients
- When there is no possibility for a fixed bridge supported by 6 or 8 implants
- If the patient does not want a denture.
The procedure for all on 4/6
After the clinical examination and 3D radigraphy, comes detail plaining of implant placement positions, and we start with the process, which goes in two phases :
First phase : implant placmenet and provisional teeht making.
Second phase : 2-3 months after implant placement making of definite all on for or six.
Implant placement is a painless procedure, which is done in local anesthesia, and lasts around 10 minutes per implant.
