Dental Implants with the All On Six Approach
Dental implants are inserted to take the place of your teeth’s roots. Similar to the roots of teeth, implants stimulate the jawbone and prevent further bone loss. When performing dental implantations, Dr. Giorgio DiVincenzo uses the all on six approach.
The all-on-6 Dental Implant refers to all teeth being supported on six dental implants completely rehabilitating a compromised arch with fixed prosthesis. This approach can be performed on the top, bottom, or bath jaws.
The procedure involves placing 6 implants through the jaw, with a horse shoe shaped porcelain bridge and does not have an artificial gum line. This fixed prosthesis will allow a person’s mouth to perform all the functions that it would with all natural teeth.
Traditional dental implants are an improvement on dentures but they still require an extensive amount of implants in the jaw in order to give a person a full set of functional teeth. The traditional l implant procedure can be extensive, expensive and uncomfortable to a patient.
In contrast, the All on Six approach is a same day procedure that only requires six implants per jaw. A new set of teeth are then fastened to the implants and ready for immediate use!
