Don’t have enough bone density to support your new smile? All-on-6 Dental Implant is your perfect choice. Get a full-arch teeth replacement that’s safe and painless in just one day.
With 3D Guided Surgery, all-on-6 implants which are made of titanium are precisely placed in your jaw using a minimally-invasive procedure.
At Micris Dental Clinic, we provide excellent services for all-on-6 Dental Implants, under the care and expertise of our highly-skilled Implantologists and Prosthodontists.
If you’re conscious about a lot of missing teeth and looking for a permanent solution, all-on-6 implants could be your best option. For major restorations of a full arch or both arches, implants restore both your smile and the full functions of your teeth that dentures cannot.
All-on-six implants distribute the pressure between the points effectively especially when the jawbone lacks density. However, compared to all-on-4 implants, all-on-6 requires more bone strength to handle all 6 placements.
Therefore, it is best to schedule an initial consultation, where our implantologist will use X-ray and 3D imaging to assess your bone density, bone strength, and the shape of your sinus cavity. Upon examining these, your dentist will determine the appropriate treatment for your case.
Our implant procedure for all-on-6 is painless as it is done under local anesthetic or sedative. Soreness or discomfort is normal after the procedure, so your dentist will prescribe some medications to relieve the pain.
Dentures are a temporary fix placed on top of the gums which do function the same way as your natural teeth. Since these removable treatments are simply placed on top of the gums, they have the tendency to become misaligned and slip because gums shrink over time when teeth fall out.
With all-on-6 dental implants, you’re sure that your new teeth are positioned precisely and your new titanium implants even strengthen your jaw bone structure.
To facilitate precise placement and minimize the risk of error, we use 3D guided technology (computer-guided surgery) to examine your dental condition in full view. With this technology, the risk of bone damage is minimized.
Adults and even elderly patients can still get all-on-6 dental implants as long as they keep a good oral and overall health. Kids and young teens, however, cannot have their teeth replaced with implants because their growing jaws would cause the prosthetic teeth to shift position.
Patients who undergo our all-on-six dental implant procedure only take two to three days to get used to their new set of teeth. For some, they go back to their normal activities a day after their implant procedure.
The cost of all-on-six implants varies according to your dental case, whether you’re going for a top/bottom arch implant placement or both arches. Upon your initial consultation with us, your dentist will discuss the full cost of the treatment and your payment options.
Without a doubt, your dental implants can definitely last a lifetime given proper oral care and attention. During the first 24 hours after your treatment, do not engage in any activity that will cause your mouth to get stressed.
Avoid eating hard or chewy foods, using a straw, spitting, and smoking. When you brush or floss your teeth (twice a day), avoid the surgical area. Always keep yourself hydrated. This will facilitate the healing faster and prepare you for the placement of your permanent dentures.
Discomfort a few days after the surgery is normal so your dentist will prescribe you some medications or over-the-counter pain relievers. It is important that you also schedule a follow-up appointment for the placement of your permanent prosthetic teeth and oral check-up.
