In the all on six treatment, a permanent prosthesis is created using 6 implants that act as abutments for the teeth. Six implants are placed in the lower or upper jawbone and teeth are made on them.
The implants in the front are placed at an angle of 90 degrees and the ones in the back at an angle of 45 degrees. Temporary teeth are placed on the implants on the same day. An average of 3 months is expected for the bone and implant to integrate. Then, the treatment is completed by making permanent teeth.
