With state of the art equipment and the best professionals we can find, we are dedicated to giving you the best dental experience you can have. We have treatments for all your dental needs, and we can help make your dentures a thing of the past. Our All-on-6 dental implants are sure to have you feeling good about your teeth in just 24 hours.
All-on-6 implants use 6 dental implants to support a bridge that holds up a complete arch of replacement teeth for either your upper or lower jaw. It uses 4 implants in the front of your jaw and 2 implants, placed at an angle, in the back for maximum support. This technique is specially designed to ensure minimum invasiveness, maximum effectiveness, and the best possible results for people in need of completely new teeth. All-on-six dental implants aren’t just a solution for decayed teeth, you might also benefit if you suffer from acid reflux or tooth loss due to trauma.
There are many benefits to All-on-6 dental implants; it is one of the best solutions to tooth loss known to medical societies today. With up to 80% of the bite power of natural teeth and a secure integration into the jawbone, it eliminates inconveniences such as taking out and cleaning your prosthetic teeth at night or limiting what you eat in order to take care of dentures.
Not only do All-on-6 dental implants function like real teeth, but they look like them, too. They are firmly secured to eliminate jiggling or removability, and they give you a natural smile and natural voice. Between the secure implants and the lack of adhesives, the All-on-6 process makes it possible for you to treat your teeth exactly as you would if they were natural.
The All-on-6 implant procedure is quick with limited invasion. It requires about 2 hours per jaw and a very short recovery time, so after your one-time surgery, you’ll be ready to go out and use your fully functional teeth! Since only a few implants are needed, you can often avoid the additional bone graft procedures typical of other techniques. In fact, the use of implants actually stabilizes your bone, making it stay more firmly in place.
Are you ashamed of your smile? Do you live in constant fear that your dentures will slip, fall out, make your smile look like it came out of a horror movie, or change your speech patterns? At Southland Dental Care, we understand the embarrassment that can come with removable prosthetic teeth. That’s why we work to give you All-on-6 dental implants at an affordable price. Once your permanent teeth are in, you will be a new you, confident and always smiling.
The simple procedure is low-cost and effective, making it an ideal choice. However, some may ask why they should choose All-on-6 as opposed to All-on-4? Neither of these options is necessarily better; it is a decision that should be made on a case-by-case basis. For example, if a more extensive reconstruction is needed, All-on-6 implants are a better choice because the additional implants provide additional support. However, if you do not have the additional bone mass required for the additional implants, you would be a more likely candidate for All-on-4. Come see one of our Sherman Oaks dentists to find out which procedure is best for you!
Before you can get your implants, you will need to be assessed via scans and x-rays. During this time, we will make impressions of your mouth and send them to our manufacturer, who will design your one-of-a-kind teeth. Afterwards, you will need to come in for surgery. We will use either intravenous sedation or local anaesthetic to make sure you’re as comfortable as you can be, and then we will perform the procedure, placing the implants wherever you have the most bone available. Once the implants are in, we will give you light, temporary teeth to give your mouth time to heal and give your implants time to integrate with your bone. This will take a few months, and although your temporary teeth will be fully functional with only a few limitations, they will require a little bit more care than your permanent teeth will. At the end of this time, you will get your fully functioning permanent teeth, which you will be able to use fully within 24 hours.
The good news is that care for All-on-6 implants is exactly the same as for natural teeth – twice daily brushing and flossing, plus twice yearly visits to the dentist! There is no need for special nightly cleanings or endless follow up appointments; a normal dental care routine is all you need to take care of your dental implants for the rest of your life. During the healing phase with your temporary teeth, you might need to avoid particularly hard or sticky foods, but afterwards there is not even a special diet you need to follow.
