The All-in-Six protocol is an implantation method in which six implants serve as a support for a fixed bridge. A bridge can include up to 14 artificial teeth. The prosthesis is placed on the implants immediately after the implantation operation, which takes about 2 to 3 hours.
The “All-on-six” implantation method is performed in patients with complete absence of teeth, as well as in patients with severely damaged or mobile teeth that have indications for removal. The “All-on-six” protocol can also be used in smoking and inflammatory diseases of the oral cavity (periodontitis), in contrast to traditional implantation methods.
Before implantation, the state of bone tissue is diagnosed using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). Then the doctor draws up a treatment plan.
The All-on-Six implantation protocol has the following features:
Most people do not understand the difference between these methods. They only know that in the All-in-four protocol, four implants are used, and in the All-in-six method, six implants are used.
The All-to-six protocol can be used for moderate bone atrophy, in contrast to the All-to-four method, which is indicated with a slight loss of bone.
The All-on-six method is low-impact, since with it the implants are installed by the puncture method, without large incisions or gum detachment.
The installation of implants occurs simultaneously with the removal of teeth, and the implants are placed in the wells of the extracted teeth.
When installing implants according to the All-on-six protocol, all layers of the bone are affected, including the zygomatic bone and the buttresses of the jaw, in contrast to the traditional methods of implantation and the All-to-four protocol. Due to this, very high rates of primary implant stability are achieved.
A key feature of the All-on-six method is the use of single-part implants. The implant is integral with the angled abutment.
Fixation of the fixed prosthesis is carried out two to three days after implantation.
When implantation is not necessary to grind and depulping the adjacent teeth, in contrast to conventional bridges.
Implants help preserve the naturalness of your smile and the comfort of the chewing function, which leads to increased confidence when smiling, talking and eating.

Improving oral health also improves overall well-being.
The process of preparing for implantation may include consultations of many specialists, including a surgeon-implantologist, a dentist-therapist and orthopedist, periodontologist, and also an otorhinolaryngologist. In preparation for implantation, patients undergo an oral examination at the dentist, with the study of X-rays, CT scans, and models of the jaws. Be sure to tell your doctor about all the diseases and medications you are taking, including prescription drugs and dietary supplements. If you have heart disease or artificial valves, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics before surgery to prevent the risk of septic endocarditis. Before the operation, a treatment plan is drawn up, which takes into account the condition of the bone tissue and the number of teeth remaining.
Options for anesthesia during surgery include local anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia. Talk with your dentist about which option is best for you. Our doctors will advise you on the possibility of eating before the operation, depending on the type of anesthesia chosen. If you are planning on sedation or general anesthesia, plan for someone to take you home after the operation and rest for the remainder of the day. Implantation is an outpatient procedure performed in stages. The process of installing a dental implant involves several steps, including: - Removal of damaged teeth - Dissection of the jaw and, if necessary, bone grafting - Implantation - Fixation of the prosthesis on implants
After fixing the prosthesis on the implants, your treatment does not end there. It is imperative that you maintain excellent hygiene to preserve the health of your oral cavity and the longevity of the implants. An annual follow-up examination of a dentist is also necessary to assess the condition of the implants, gum health and hygiene level.
