At 3rd & Columbia Dental, our dentists near you are committed to your oral health and function. That’s why we offer all-on-6 in Seattle, WA, for patients with full tooth loss in either their upper or lower arches or both. Patients can lose a full set of teeth due to many factors, such as severe decay, trauma or injury to the mouth, and even serious acid reflux. However, there are restorative solutions for full tooth loss so that patients can regain confidence in their oral appearance and the way their teeth function.
All-on-6 implants feature six dental implants to support a full set of replacement teeth for either the upper or lower jaw. This procedure is designed to less invasive than traditional dental implants yet offer maximum effectiveness and results for patients in need of a full set of replacement teeth. All-on-6 dental implants look and function like your natural teeth. Unlike full dentures, they are secure in the mouth, which allows patients to treat these prosthetic teeth as if they were original.
The procedure for all-on-6 implants is fairly quick and limited in invasiveness. It is a single surgical procedure with a relatively short recovery time. A patient’s replacement teeth with all-on-6 are considered fully functioning almost immediately.
Full dentures are designed to replace a full set of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaws. However, full dentures are less secure than all-on-6 implants, leaving the patient at risk of their dentures slipping or falling out. Also, dentures must be removed to allow a patient’s gum tissue to rest and be cleaned. All-on-6 implants are permanent in the mouth and should be cleaned just as your natural teeth would be through oral hygiene.
