The differences between the all on four / six / eight dental implants lie in their names. These numbers refer to the number of implants placed on the jaws. These implants are different from your natural teeth in that it will be required to floss them in a different way compared to your natural teeth.
These implants are referred to as implants in a day because we use digital scanning and advanced preparation technologies to provide same-day implantation. This means you can fix your appointment and get the implants the same day without the need for a return visit.
Benefits of All on Four / Six / Eight – Implants in a Day
All on Four / Six / Eight implants provide a wide range of benefits. This includes:

- These implants typically don’t need bone grafts.

Things to Expect from Your All-On Dental Implants Treatment
At Restorative and Implant Dentistry, you can expect your all on four / six / eight implants procedure to be completed the same day. The implant and crown placement will be completed in a single day using advanced technology. You will not have to wait for weeks to get your set of prosthetic teeth bridges and crowns.
The most important reason dentists recommend all on four / six / eight dental implants is that it is a highly effective treatment for those with many missing teeth in the mandibular or maxillary jaw. It is also a highly effective way to deal with full toothlessness. If you have lost most of your teeth, the all-on treatment is the best way to have stable dentures that work almost like natural teeth.
You should expect the following when you choose this procedure:
Firm Jaw Integration
The procedure begins by integrating the implants into the jaw. This implant is placed at the point of the missing tooth. The gums will be stitched together and given time to heal. An abutment will be placed on the visible area of the implant. This makes it easier to place dental bridges.
Use with Natural Teeth
If you have natural teeth left, you may opt for fewer than 4. This treatment goes beyond giving you the look of natural teeth. The porcelain crowns and bridges can also work almost like natural teeth, especially when compared to normal dental prostheses.
You may opt not to have temporary or removable prostheses with this procedure, as you can choose long-term prosthetics in a few days’ time. Your all-on implants provide you with firm teeth that both look and work like natural ones, providing you with a stable bite. In some scenarios, they can be even better than your natural teeth. If the crown or bridge gets damaged in any way, new ones can be fixed instantly.
