Save thousands on an All-on-6 in Palma , Mallorca (Majorca) while enjoying rest and recuperation on this Mediterranean Spanish holiday island. Palma is the capital city of the Balearic Islands and offers sun, beaches and a quaint Old Town to discover, beneath a stunning centuries-old cathedral.
The All-on-6 procedure is one of the best ways of replacing your teeth. If you’ve already lost all of them and wear dentures, the All-on-6 offers a more stable and secure alternative; if you only have a few teeth left these can be removed and All-on-6 fitted in their place.
A complete arch of teeth is attached permanently to just six dental implants in a procedure that often can be carried out in just one session—including extraction of teeth, insertion of implants and attachment of new teeth.
The procedure requires specialist skills and involves placing the implants in strategic places in the jaw bone to provide the most stability. Although the procedure can be carried out in one session, a great deal of planning is required beforehand by your dentist. Thus, the stages are:
1: Consultation & Assessment: Your implantologist will provide a thorough consultation, examination and assessment. Scans and digital x-rays will be taken to assess that your jaw bone has enough bone to hold the implants. If traditional dental implants are not an option for you due to bone loss, the implants for the All-on-6 are longer, and inserted at a tilted angle, rather than straight. Thus, you may still be able to have the treatment without the need of a bone transplant.
If you are a suitable candidate, the dentist will first take impressions of your mouth which are then sent to a laboratory. At the lab, your new set of teeth are made and sent back to your dentist so they can be fitted on the day of your surgery.
2: Treatment Day: The procedure is carried out under a local anaesthetic, or with conscious sedation, and typically takes around three hours per arch. If you have any remaining teeth, these will be removed first, then flaps are made in the gum so the dentist can access the jaw bone where the implants are to be inserted. Small holes are made in the jaw at these points, and the implants placed. The arch of teeth is then attached the procedure is complete.
3: Permanent Restoration: If you have had extractions, the teeth you are given will be a temporary, lighter set than the permanent crowns. This allows the gums and jaw to heal, and it will be around three months before the permanent crowns can be fitted. This is something you should think about if you are going to Palma for your treatment as it means you may need to travel back to get your permanent teeth. Alternatively, you could have your remaining teeth extracted by a dentist at home several months before you travel to Palma, so that you can get your permanent teeth immediately.
· Just one procedure means less time in surgery and less recovery time;
· The implants can be inserted at the same time that your teeth are removed;
· The procedure may be suitable for patients with bone loss;
· The treatment costs less replacing your teeth with individual implants.

Undoubtedly, you’ll receive excellent dental services if you choose a reliable clinic in Palma, but what about Palma as a holiday destination? You likely won’t be disappointed on that count as well. This cosmopolitan city is overseen by the impressive La Seo—the Catedral de Mallorca. A handsome, Gothic sandstone building dating back to the 13th century—it’s little wonder it took four centuries to complete—this huge edifice covers an area of 6,600 square meters and 44 meters high. Spain’s famous Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi, remodelled the interior in the early part of last century, so it’s definitely worth the few euros to go inside and take a peek.
The surrounding narrow, winding streets around the cathedral provide endless opportunities to discover new alleys and quaint cafes, bars and restaurants you haven’t stumbled across before. You will also find several museums in the area, including Joan Miro’s house and the Es Baluard Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art that houses works by major artists, including Picasso.
Palma is also great for shopping and nightlife and won’t disappoint, particularly if you are a lover of great cities—and this is certainly one of them.
