Teeth in a Day — Get Back Your Perfect Smile With All-on-6 Dental Implants

When you come to Wappingers Falls Dental Arts for a All-on-4 consultation, your dentist takes a detailed dental and periodont

According to the Centers for Disease Control, almost 19% of women and men over age 65 years in the U.S. have lost all of their teeth. Many more have lost at least one row of teeth, or need to have those teeth removed because they’re decayed or damaged. 

When you need to replace your teeth on a budget, dentures are the most cost-effective choice. However, if you’ve been wearing dentures for a while you’ve probably had problems, such as:

Maybe you were even discontent enough to look into the possibility of replacing your missing teeth with the most natural-looking solution available — dental implants — but were scared off by the price and by the long surgical recovery time. You don’t have to give up, though. At Wappinger Falls Dental Arts in Wappingers Falls, New York, our expert dentists offer All-on-4® implant-supported dentures, which marry the best qualities of both dentures and implants.

Decades of smiling success

Since its invention in 1998, dentists worldwide have improved the smiles of hundreds of thousands of patients with All-on-6

The concept is simple: Our dentists place six stable titanium implants deep into your jaw, and then attach a custom-designed, full-arch prosthesis to the implants. The implants keep your prosthetic teeth firmly in place so you can eat, talk, and laugh without ever worrying about your teeth slipping.  Benefits include:

You can even choose whether you want a permanent or removable implant-secured prosthesis.

When you lose your teeth, you usually lose some of the bone in your jaw, too. Your jaw needs the pressure of chewing and biting teeth to signal it to produce healthy new bone cells. Without teeth and their pressure, your jawbone atrophies. 

Patients who choose traditional dental implants and have bone loss in their jaws often must undergo a bone-grafting procedure before their implants can be safely inserted. 

Your dentures can be your temporary prosthesis

Once your implants are in place, we give you a temporary prosthesis so you can smile and eat as you heal from your oral surgery. If you already have dentures, we simply modify your prosthetic and attach it to the implants. If you’ve never had dentures, we create a temporary set for you.

During your All-on-6 procedure, we also take impressions of your jaw with the implants in place. Our dentists then create a plan for your final prosthetic and send it to the lab. 

Within weeks, your final prosthetic is ready. Your dentist removes your temporary dentures and attaches your final prosthetic to the implants. 

Ready for your instant smile?

When you come to Wappingers Falls Dental Arts for an All-on-6 consultation, your dentist takes a detailed dental and periodontal history and conducts a thorough examination, which includes a full set of X-rays. Depending on your individual case, he may also order a CT scan to ensure that your gums and bones are healthy enough for an All-on-6. If you still have a few remaining teeth in the jaw where you’d like an All-on-6 restoration, you and your dentist will discuss whether they should be removed before your procedure.
