Fix-on-Six® Dental Implants in Union City, NJ

Learn Why Fix-on-Six® Dental Implants Are The Superior Alternative to Dentures

It’s estimated that more than 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, and at least 36 million are missing all of their teeth. About 15% of people in the U.S. who are missing teeth have dentures made each year.

When a person has missing teeth, they can find it difficult to chew many foods or pronounce words correctly. Many people feel embarrassed about their situation and go out of their way to avoid smiling or laughing. They can withdraw from social situations and suffer from low self-confidence.

Dentures: Are They Really a Solution?

Fix-on-Six® Dental Implants in Union City, NJ | Diana Rodriguez, DMDFor many years, the only solution for missing teeth was dentures. Unfortunately for many people, traditional dentures don’t eliminate the problems associated with missing teeth. Wearers still suffer from difficulty chewing and speaking as their dentures shift around in their mouths or even occasionally fall out. 

Dentures can also add to a person’s list of problems, especially if they do not fit the wearer’s mouth properly. They can cause significant pain, sores in the mouth, gum irritation, and bacterial infections. 

There are different types of dentures available, but there are also many alternatives out there. The best ones are those that fit better, look more natural, and are secured in place much more firmly than traditional dentures.

What Are Fix-on-Six® Dental Implants?

The Fix-on-Six® dental implants procedure offers patients one of the best solutions for missing teeth without any of the hassle and frustration of regular dentures. Fix-on-Six® uses six mini dental implants that support a complete arch of replacement teeth. This procedure can be done for the upper jaw, the lower jaw, or both.

What Are the Mini Dental Implants that Are Used with Fix-on-Six®?

Mini dental implants differ from traditional implants, mainly in size. Both types comprise screws that are placed in the jaw to take the place of the missing roots of teeth.

Mini implant screws are half the size of traditional ones. For this reason, these mini versions can be used for patients who have experienced deterioration of the jawbone. This deterioration results from a lack of teeth roots. Roots are necessary to stimulate the jawbone and retain its volume and density.

Once the implants are in place, single crowns (or, in the case of Fix-on-Six® dental implants, bridges that support full arches of teeth) are secured to them, giving the patient a permanent, strong set of prosthetic teeth.

Mini dental implants are superior to traditional implants not only because they are smaller but also because they are less expensive, have a quicker healing time, and are less invasive. 

Oftentimes with traditional dental implants, patients need bone grafting to build the jawbone up enough to support the large screws. This is generally not needed with mini dental implants.

How Fix-on-Six® Dental Implants Work to Replace Missing Teeth

This procedure requires placing a total of six implants in the jaw: four mini dental implants in the front part of the jawbone and one on each side. Dr. Diana Rodriguez, DMD, will attach a full arch of custom-made prosthetic teeth to the implants, which act as anchors for your new teeth. 

The arch is firmly secured to the implants, so there is no threat of ill-fitting prosthetic teeth or the problems they create. 

The full arch that will be used as your new teeth will be durable and fully customized so that it fits your mouth perfectly. You will rediscover a truly beautiful smile that looks completely natural.

Why Choose the Fix-on-Six® Dental Implants Procedure?

There are many benefits of choosing Fix-on-Six® dental implants:

  • Having jawbone stabilization
  • Regaining the ability to speak and chew correctly
  • Rediscovering the confidence to laugh and smile
  • Not needing messy, painful, ill-fitting dentures
  • Enjoying a solution for missing teeth that will last for many decades

The Fix-on-Six® procedure is currently the very best solution in the field of dentistry for patients who are missing full arches of teeth. Consider the above benefits more closely in the sections below.

Jawbone Stabilization

Having mini dental implants in the jaw does more than secure your new prosthetic teeth in place. They also stabilize the jawbone and help stop the deterioration that results from a lack of teeth. 

When a jawbone loses density and volume, a person’s facial appearance changes and can take on a sunken-in look. The implants stimulate the jawbone just like tooth roots would, preventing bone loss so that the patient retains a full, healthy jaw.

The Ability to Speak and Chew Correctly

Teeth are critical to a person’s ability to pronounce words correctly and chew many different foods. When teeth are missing, it invariably degrades a person’s ability to do both. 

The full arch dental implants of Fix-on-Six® give patients the ability to speak clearly, and with up to 80% of the bite power of natural teeth, the prosthetic teeth can handle even the toughest foods.

The Confidence to Laugh and Smile

Many people are embarrassed about the condition of their teeth or the fact that they are missing them. At Union City Mini Dental Implants, we completely understand that, and our ultimate goal is always to give our patients the self-confidence to smile and laugh again.

Fix-on-Six® dental implants can give patients a renewed sense of pride in their appearance. Many patients who get Fix-on-Six® implants regain a sense of joy in life, knowing that their oral appearance is no longer a cause of embarrassment and frustration.

No Need for Messy, Ill-Fitting Dentures

The hassles that often come with traditional dentures can chip away at a person’s zest for life: soaking them in cleaner every night, worrying about them shifting or even falling out when speaking or eating, mouth and gum irritation, and the list goes on.

There is no risk of full arch dental implants shifting, moving, falling out, or causing sores in the mouth. 

A Solution for Missing Teeth that Will Last for Many Decades

Traditional dentures don’t last nearly as long as Fix-on-Six® implants do. As a person with dentures ages, they must have those dentures refitted and remade many times over as the shape of their face changes. 

Fix-on-Six® dental implants are designed to be permanent solutions that do not require endless refittings or follow-up appointments with your dentist to maintain. The implants only require that you brush, floss, and go to your regular dental checkups twice each year, just as you would with natural teeth.
