What are all-on-6 dental implants, and how do they restore the smile?
At Washington Street Dentistry, Dr. Matthew Church and his dedicated team of professionals in Indianapolis, Indiana, are available to assist patients with restorative dental care. This includes providing a wide range of solutions for tooth loss, including dental implants, dentures, and bridges. Patients who need complete restoration of the smile, including full arch repair, may want to ask our team about the many advantages of a treatment known as teeth in a day or “all-on-six” dental implants.
What are all-on-six dental implants?
All-on-six dental implants, sometimes called implant-supported dentures or full-arch dental implants, allow patients to quickly restore their smile after complete tooth extraction or loss. This particular repair method involves placing six dental implants evenly throughout the jawbone, which are then used to support a full set of artificial teeth. This provides our patients at Washington Street Dentistry with a more stable, secure, natural-looking solution than traditional dentures.
How do all-on-six dental implants work in providing restoration of the smile after tooth extraction and loss?
All-on-six dental implants use a strategic placement of six titanium posts in the jawbone to provide a strong foundation for the full arch of replacement teeth. These implants are placed at specific angles that maximize contact with the jawbone and offer stability for the prosthetic teeth. The artificial teeth are then attached to the implants, allowing for a secure and permanent restoration. This method of repair is highly desirable when compared to traditional full dentures, which may require denture adhesives to keep them firmly in place and functional.
