Transform Your Smile with Confidence: The Complete 3 on 6™ Process

Are you considering a 3 on 6™ dental restoration but unsure about the process? Many patients share your concerns about the duration of the visits, the total time until completion, and the fear of leaving the office without teeth. At All Out Dental, we understand these worries and are here to guide you through each step of the process. Read on to discover how we can help you achieve a beautiful, lasting smile in just a few months.

From Consultation to Completion: The 3 on 6™ Journey

The entire process from your initial consultation to the final placement of your new teeth typically takes 3-4 months. Here’s a detailed breakdown of what you can expect:

1. Initial Consultation

Duration: Approximately 30 minutes

Your journey begins with a consultation at our office. This visit is crucial as it allows us to evaluate your unique dental needs and discuss how the 3 on 6™ procedure can work for you. During this appointment:

  • 3D Scan: We take a comprehensive 3D scan of your mouth and bone structure to ensure you have sufficient bone for the implants.
  • Treatment Plan: We create a personalized treatment plan and explain the procedure in detail.
  • Questions and Concerns: You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions and address any concerns with the doctor.
  • Payment Options: Our office manager will review financing options with you.

If you decide to proceed with the treatment during this visit, we may also take impressions of your mouth to create your temporary denture and schedule your implant surgery date.

2. Implant Surgery

Duration: 2-3 hours for a single arch, 3-5 hours for both arches

On the day of your surgery, the doctor will perform any necessary tooth extractions and bone grafting before placing the implants using a surgical guide. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Anesthesia Options: You can choose from various anesthesia options, ranging from local anesthetic (awake but numb) to being completely asleep. Costs for anesthesia vary by office.
  • Recovery: We recommend taking at least one day off work to recover. Most patients manage post-surgery pain with Tylenol and ibuprofen, which typically lasts only 1-2 days.

3. Temporary Bridges

Immediate Results

After your surgery, you’ll leave the office with temporary bridges that look natural and beautiful. While they may feel slightly awkward at first, they will help you adjust to having teeth again.

4. Healing Period

Duration: Approximately 3 months

During the healing period, your implants need time to integrate with your bone. It’s essential to eat only soft foods during this time to ensure proper healing.

5. Final Restorations

Completion of Your New Smile

Once your implants have healed, you’ll return to our office for the final dental restorations. These permanent teeth will look very similar to your temporary bridges, with any necessary adjustments made to perfect your smile. With proper care and regular cleanings every six months, your new teeth can last a lifetime.
