LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – Las Vegas has long been a premiere entertainment and vacation destination, but now people are flocking to the neon lights for something else: 3 on 6™ smile restoration. Dr. Jason Emett of All Out Dental is now the Silver State’s first provider of this revolutionary procedure. The unique smile restoration option permanently restores a patient’s teeth without the bone removal or frustrating maintenance that other procedures require.
Dr. Jason Emett grew up in the neighboring state of Utah and has worked in dentistry since he was 15 years old, starting in his father’s dental lab. He attended UNLV School of Dental Medicine and practiced dentistry for many years. In 2024 he completed the full mouth rehabilitation course from Smile Systems in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dr. Emett is excited to offer this state-of-the-art option to the people of Las Vegas.
“I believe we are seeing a shift in the world of full mouth rehabilitation where patients can expect a more ideal outcome with a more natural looking smile and better quality of life,” said Dr. Emett. “I love that an entire ecosystem exists for delivering this treatment and I love that I can help patients with their journey.”
The 3 on 6™ procedure was developed by Dr. Randy Roberts of Smile Clinic in 2013 as a permanent, implant supported solution for full arch teeth replacement. The procedure utilizes six implants and three zirconia bridges to permanently restore a patient’s teeth. Dr. Roberts developed the procedure to preserve the patient's healthy bone and make a more hygienic and esthetic smile. The use of 3D printers, intraoral, tomography, and photogrammetry scanners, surgical guides, and other technologies, allows 3 on 6™ providers to offer predictable, high-quality treatment with an extremely high success rate.
Dr. Emett believes that the 3 on 6™ offers unique advantages over other treatment options. He explained, “The 3 on 6 treatment allows for patients to keep their gums and bone. This protocol allows for much smaller and lighter prosthetics that look natural and provide a much better chewing and speaking experience as compared to other treatment modalities.”
When compared to other popular treatment options like All-On-4 or All-on-X, the 3 on 6™ stands out because of its ability to preserve the patient's bone and require very low maintenance. While an All-on-X restoration distributes biting forces across a large, bulky artificial gum, the 3 on 6™ uses segmented bridges, allowing for greater implant stimulation and contributing to long term bone health. Patients love the natural look and feel of the teeth in their mouth. In addition, a 3 on 6™ can be cleaned by the patient with standard brushing and flossing. Unlike an All-on-X, a dentist will never need to remove the restoration for cleaning or replace worn down parts.
While most patients will be more familiar with the All-On-4, Dr. Emett believes that they should consider the unique advantages that the 3 on 6™ offers.
“3 on 6™ is more conservative by design with selective bone removal only for esthetic reasons and not out of necessity because of the size of the prosthetic. It also excels at soft tissue preservation and is a more cleansable prosthetic device. The long-term maintenance is also much more favorable as the bridges don't require yearly removal. In addition, if there is a situation requiring future removal or repair you no longer need to replace the entire prosthetic and can simply replace a single bridge. All eligible patients should strongly consider this treatment.”
