The Fixed implant-supported denture is commonly called the “All-on-Four”, the “All-on-Six”, or the hybrid denture. This restorative technique is as close as is currently possible to having your natural teeth back again. Restoring not only your smile, but also over 90% of your chewing power. In most cases 4 implants are placed in the lower jaw and 6 in the upper and the teeth are secured onto the implants with titanium screws. The screw holes are then filled in with tooth-colored fillings. Only the missing teeth and gum tissue are replaced. There is not any bulky plastic surrounding the gums and the palate is not covered in plastic. You brush and floss them just like natural teeth. You will also have routine dental check-ups and cleanings, at least every six months. Unlike natural teeth, they are not susceptible to tooth decay. However, like natural teeth, you must have good oral hygiene to keep your gums healthy.
