Do you have several missing teeth that you’d like to have replaced? If so, All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants could be the best tooth replacement option for you. There are countless reasons why many dental patients are turning to implants for replacing their missing teeth. While dentures were once the go-to option, implants are quickly becoming the preferred choice. With the rise in popularity in all-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants, they even make a great option for replacing several missing teeth.
What are all-on-4 and all-on-6 implants?
If you wanted 1 or 2 missing teeth to be replaced, then individual implants for each tooth would be the clear choice. However, for patients that are missing their entire top, bottom, or both rows of teeth (or have multiple damaged teeth that would be better removed), another option is available in the form of all-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants. These take shape in the form of a bridge that is connected to your jawbone via 4 or 6 implants. The replacement teeth are then connected to the bridge, rather than directly to the implant itself.
Why are all-on-4 and all-on-6 implants such popular options?
Other than providing the confidence to smile and the ability to eat, speak and laugh worry-free, these options are popular because they provide the ability to replace multiple teeth with the same strength and longevity as individual dental implants. At Modern Family Dentists LLC, we like to do things a little differently – in a good way. Rather than stick to the rulebook and keep the implants to the usual 4 or 6 when replacing entire sets of teeth, we sometimes implement a procedure we like to call ‘All-on-as-Many-as-Possible’. This means we safely use as many implants as it takes to ensure your replacement teeth are attached as firmly as possible, meaning they will likely last a lifetime.
How long does the process take?
Don’t let the marketing companies fool you. Unfortunately, many people are led to believe that having dental implants is a quick procedure. The truth is, any form of dental implant can take up to a year for the procedure to be finalized. This is mainly due to the time required for the healing process. The good news, however, is that when you choose Modern Family Dentists LLC for your dental implants, we are with you every step of the way. From the initial consultation to the final implant, you’ll experience the personalized care and attention that makes us the dentists people want to go to.
