Dr. Nick Cost Talks about Fixed on six
At our office, we do a procedure called a Fix on Six. And so some people have heard of something called an All-on-4, which uses standard implants. A Fix on Six, it’s kind of a mini implant-supported sibling of the All-on-4. Basically, what a Fix on Six is, is if you are missing your teeth and you either don’t want to or cannot tolerate a traditional denture in the bulk of a traditional denture, or you don’t wanna deal with removing your teeth all the time, the Fix on Six, very minimally invasive, we put a row of implants in, typically 8 to 10 implants, and then we make a beautiful bridge of teeth, all-porcelain bridge, that snaps in to the mini implants. Again, very minimally invasive, smile looks amazing. Teeth look extremely natural because it’s all porcelain. So it mimics natural cosmetics of natural teeth. People can laugh, talk, you brush them in your mouth just like they’re your natural teeth. You don’t have to take them in and out. And so it’s a really great option for people who don’t have teeth, but they’re looking to replace their teeth and get their smile back the way it was.
