How long is the recovery?
The all-on-6 dental implants procedure is used to replace the entire upper or lower set of teeth. This dental procedure is used to restructure a patient’s mouth, generally done when the patients have lost a significant number of teeth in upper and/or lower jaws. The implants bond with the jaw to mimic the pressure placed on it by your natural teeth. The name “All On” comes from the fact that the fixed or removable denture will fasten to six implants.
How does the process work?
After conducting a comprehensive examination, digital x-rays, and 3D Cone Beam CT-Scan, Dr Mancuso will evaluate the anatomical structures in the mouth. The dentist will then assess bone loss and impressions in order to generate your smile again. The All-on-6 implants usually do not require bone grafting.
We will use either intravenous sedation or local anesthesia to make sure you’re as comfortable as you can be, and then we will perform the procedure, placing the implants wherever you have the most bone available. Once the implants are in, we will give you light, temporary teeth to give your mouth time to heal and give your implants time to integrate with your bone. This will take a few months, and although your temporary teeth will be fully functional with only a few limitations, they will require a little bit more care than your permanent teeth will. At the end of this time, you will get your fully functioning permanent teeth, which you will be able to use fully within 24 hours.

How long is the post-surgery healing time?
In the first three months of the procedure, the mouth will be healing. The bone and gums will change shape to adapt to the new fixture. During this time, patients should exercise caution in eating hard or very chewy foods.
