Consider the Option of All-On-6 Dental Implants
At the end stage of somebody’s failing to dentition, sometimes dentures are the only option. I love doing that. It’s such a great thing what we can do for somebody. We can restore the lip support. We can restore the cheek support. We can increase chewing function. We can give that person confidence to smile. It’s a wonderful thing.
Sometimes, for some patients having dentures, even though we make them so they’re comfortable, they’re still removable. They’re removable prosthesis appliances. If they want something fixed, the next step is to have a denture that is All-on-6 implants so that’s a real reduction in the appliance. It’s no longer removable. We have implants in place to help maintain and keep the bone from deteriorating—keep the bone from resorbing and that offers more of a mouth feel to food, it allows more space for the tongue for speech, it’s a really nice option to offer people. On the All-on-6, it makes it easier for people to chew food who are struggling with removable appliances. They can chew their food easier because it’s less plastic and it’s fixed into the mouth. It doesn’t move. It’s a little bit more natural, like real teeth.
