All-on-4/All-on-6 Dental Implants in Schenectady
Missing Teeth Solutions in the Capital District
People who are missing all or most of their teeth need a tooth replacement option that blends strength and natural beauty. Dentures are one option, but because they rest solely on the gums, many become loose or uncomfortable over time. Dr. Shiloh Lieberman and Dr. Erin Page can provide an excellent alternative with All on 4/6 implant bridges in the Capital District.
“I feel like a whole new person since I got my implants. After years of suffering with my lower denture, I now have no pain. It is wonderful. I was shocked at how much they felt like my own teeth... sometimes I even forget. I was very happy with the office — it's very comfortable, and all of the staff are just great. Coming here was the best decision I ever made. I am much happier now, and also it has really helped my self-confidence. I would strongly advise anyone else in my situation to get implants."
What Are Implant Dentures?
Implant dentures stay secure in the smile because they are attached to dental implants surgically placed beneath the gum line. Traditional dentures, by contrast, rest on the gums and are secured by natural suction or with the help of a denture adhesive.
Dental implants offer unmatched stability for a denture or bridge. The jawbone actually heals together with each implant, meaning the new tooth replacement is just as strong as any other bone in your body once recovery is complete.
The benefits of implant dentures include:
- Better oral and overall health with a stabilized jawbone
- No need for denture adhesive or cream
- Easier eating and speech
- A natural-looking replacement
How Does a Full Arch Implant Supported Bridge Work?
All on 4/6 provides patients with a fixed full arch dental implant retained bridge, or in other words, a full set of teeth attached by as few as 4 or as many as 6 dental implants. This method works using the strategic placement of 4 to 6 dental implants in the densest areas of the jawbone at specific angles. Those implants are anchors for a full arch bridge. Compared to traditional implant placement to replace individual missing teeth (1 implant for each tooth), the all on 4/6 technique uses implants at specific locations and angles, drawing strength across the entire arch, allowing for the attachment of a full arch prosthesis (4 to 6 implants for an entire arch of teeth).
To begin, Dr. Page and Dr. Lieberman develop a treatment plan using our 3D cone beam imaging technology to determine the ideal placement of each implant, and review this plan with you and our prosthetic laboratory. Each implant is placed using precise surgical guides, and a functional transitional bridge is placed on the day of your surgery. You return for your permanent bridge approximately 4 to 6 months later, after full healing is complete.
