All-On-4 and All-On-6 Implant Supported Dentures in Washington D.C. & Alexandria, VA
All-In-4 and All-In-6 implant supported dentures can easily replace traditional dentures.
Implant supported dentures don’t require an implant for each individually lost tooth. Instead, a series of 4 or 6 dental implants can be placed in a single arch, and a permanent denture created with a full arch of natural looking, fully functional replacement teeth.
Candidates for All-On-4 or All-On-6 Dentures
The All-On-4 / All-On-6 dental implant techniques are ideal for patients who have low bone density and limited jawbone tissue. The process can create a more form fitting and comfortable set of dentures that are more stable than traditional dentures and which function the same as permanent teeth.
Benefits of All-On-4 or All-On-6 Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures provide:
• A transformed smile in just one day
• Easier eating and drinking
• Comfortable chewing
• Stable and secure dentures that don’t slide
• An implant solution that rarely requires a bone graft
• A quick and easy recovery
• Easy at-home maintenance
• A natural looking smile
• Higher self-confidence
The All-On-4 or All-On-6 Implant Procedure
Implant supported denture procedures have a quick recovery time and high success rate. The first step in installing dentures is examining the patient’s mouth and any previously owned dentures to determine the size of denture required, appropriate bite and alignment of the teeth, and the condition of the bone and gums.
The areas with the highest bone volume will be identified and four or six implants placed per arch. These implants may either be bar-retained or ball-retained and will provide a strong foundation for the new set of teeth.
The dental implants will integrate with the bone. During this time period (about six months), a temporary set of teeth will be used. Once healing is complete, the customized denture will be placed.
This process is simpler and more cost-efficient than individually replacing all of an arch’s teeth with individual dental implants.
