What Are All-on-6 Dental Implants from Santa Barbara Family Dentistry?
The All-on-6 dental implant system provides a permanent prosthesis for patients who are missing a full arch of teeth or all their teeth.
Six implants are placed into the jawbone. The implants act as an anchor for both the jawbone and the overdenture or bridge prosthetic.
Without dental implants, the jawbone will eventually recede, reducing the density of the bone and making it harder for dentures to fit comfortably over the jawbone ridge. Dental implants are placed into the jawbone. They act like the roots of the teeth, stabilizing and anchoring the jawbone in place, thereby retaining the density and strength of the bone.
