If price was the same which would you choose, All-On-4 or All-On-6?

The All-on-4  dental implants is a technique that utilizes only four dental implants per dental arch. The implants of the All-on-4 procedure are also placed at an angled, which allows for increased contact by using the natural support of your bone. The All-on-6 consists in the placement of 6 dental implants per each dental arch. The aim of the dental implants is to act as tooth roots, dispersing similar force around the mouth to secure teeth structure and facilitate oral activity. The All-on-6 procedure is able to provide you with  a strong, beautiful and stable smile.

As known, only 4 dental implants are unable to disperse as much force as 6 dental implants to support teeth and facial structure, which is why the All on 6 dental implants system has become such a hit with patients looking for missing teeth options.

According to a study, published in Pub Med, human males can generate approximately a 265 pound of force bite. Females generate slightly less powerful, but comparable, forces. Another fact to keep in mind. The average person chews each bite of food 10x. Each meal would be 10,000 bites. 3 meals a day would be 30,000 bites a day.

At California Implant Smiles we believe these are the reasons we have had patients who had the All-On-4 surgical procedure from other dental surgeons and many times in about 3 years, screw heads started to break or became lose.
Many dental surgeons prefer the All-On-4 surgical procedure because it is less time consuming, cheaper costs, and it is the only technique they know. At California Implant Smiles we strive in being pioneers in dental surgical procedures and for long lasting results. This is why we offer the All-On-6 dental surgery technique which will guarantee your implants will be much stronger and longer lasting.
If the price was the same and you had a choice from 4 implant screws vs. 6 implant screws, which would you choose?
