Video FAQ: Do You Offer All-on-4/6 Dental Implants?

November 12, 2019

Filed under: Video FAQs — Dr. Erin Page @ 8:22 pm
Are you wanting to replace all of your teeth? Implant-retained dentures, also known as All-on-4 or All-on-6, is an excellent option. In this video, Dr. Shiloh Lieberman discusses the All-on-4/6 dental implant procedure and sheds light on how it is performed.

The process starts with taking records, including impressions from our digital scanner, then Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Erin Page begin to plan the case. Once the prosthesis (denture) is produced, the patient’s existing teeth are removed — their bone is modified (if needed) to ensure optimal fit — the implants are placed, and the immediate denture is attached.

The procedure is very comfortable and sedation dentistry is provided to ensure complete relaxation.

If you are missing one or several teeth and interested in All-on-4/6, our Capital District dentists would love to discuss your options. Contact our practice to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Page! We can’t wait to help realize the smile of your dreams.
