All-on-6 Implant Dentist in Miranda

All-on-6 is a dental implant treatment for people missing an entire arch of teeth and is an ideal long-term alternative to a traditional denture that merely rests on the gums. A complete arch of teeth is supported by six dental implants placed into the jawbone. These dental implants provide a strong anchorage point for a full-span bridge fixed permanently in place or a denture that will clip firmly onto the implants but can be removed easily for cleaning. The treatment provides teeth that feel stable and have far greater biting strength than an ordinary denture. Usually, no bone graft is necessary as the implants are situated in such a way as to maximise the use of available bone.

What are the Benefits of All-on-6?

The benefits of this treatment include:
  • 🦷 Improved ability to eat due to increased biting strength

  • 🦷 Long-term results that can last for many years or for life
  • 🦷 Improved oral health as the dental implants help protect your jawbone

Who Can Have All-on-6

Most people are suitable for dental implants, but we will need to assess your dental health and review your medical history thoroughly. Sometimes certain systemic diseases can affect healing, and some medications can also affect this treatment. We will also need to ensure you have sufficient bone for the implants to be situated optimally. If you lost teeth quite some time ago or have advanced periodontal disease that has resulted in jawbone loss, you may need a bone graft before you can have this treatment. Bone grafting is very straightforward but can increase treatment length and overall costs. During this appointment, we will discuss the treatment in more detail, so you understand exactly what will happen and what to expect.

What Is the Procedure for All-on-6?

After assessing your jawbone and carrying out diagnostic tests, we can plan your implant surgery. It usually takes around two hours to place the dental implants, after which they will need time to heal. During the healing period, we provide you with a temporary arch of teeth, so there is no need to worry you will be left without your smile. After a few months, you return to Shire Dental so we can fabricate your permanent teeth. We always take tremendous care when fabricating any restoration, especially a full arch bridge or denture, ensuring it looks natural and provides optimal functionality. Once your new teeth are in place, we also provide full instructions on keeping them clean, and of course, our friendly dental team is always here to answer any questions you might have about your new teeth.
