Be in good enough health to undergo surgery: The placement of implants is a surgical procedure and, as such, does entail a certain degree of risk. Certain types of medical conditions (such as uncontrolled diabetes) may disqualify you from the All-on dental Implant procedures. Patients taking antidepressants should be aware of the increased risk of implant failure, Patients undergoing radiation therapy of the jaw are usually not eligible for dental implants.
No Smoking: Smoking can increase your implant failure rate up to three times. Smoking is absolutely forbidden while recovering from surgery, and patients are strongly encouraged not to smoke after recovery.

IMPORTANCE OF CORRECT IMAGING FOR PRECISION PLANNING OF THE
ALL-ON-4 & ALL-ON-6
Not all dental Imaging is created equal, true they all have their designated uses and when it comes to the ALLON4 and ALLON6 the CT Scan is what your dental Implant specialist needs.
The importance of the correct type of imaging needed for the ALLON4 and ALLON6 treatments cannot be underestimated (and Implant treatments in general)
It is not recommended that you have any dental implant treatments performed without first having a CT Scan taken along with additional digital xrays.
A diagnostic CT scan is vital for the specialists to assess
whether you possess adequate bone density and bone volume for these procedures. In some cases, preparatory dental work may be needed prior to a All-On dental implant treatment can be performed.
It allows accurate, precise, and safe planning of the implants with as few complications as possible. Essentially, a CT scan before a dental implant procedure will significantly improve the likelihood of a seamless, successful procedure
Why panoramic X-ray image alone is not enough?
Panoramic images are great and are used as a diagnostic tool, but are magnified and distorted whereas Cone beam images provide undistorted and accurate views of the jaws. As a result the use of panoramic images to perform measurements is unreliable. Another key difference is that CT images provide different views (cross-sectional, axial, coronal, sagittal, etc.) while panoramic x-rays provide only one view with all structures between the x-ray tube and the image detector superimposed on one another. This allows CT images to separate out the various structures.
