Fix-on-Six: A Stronger, More Natural-Looking Denture Solution

Fix-on-Six in Sterling Heights, MI | Mini Dental Implants | Dentures

There’s an old saying that goes, “If one is good, then more is better.” If that’s the case, it makes sense that if four is good, six is better, right? In the case of implant dentures, we certainly think so. The Fix-on-Six® denture system offers increased stability and functionality over the All-on-4® system and provides the benefits of using mini dental implants over larger traditional dental implants. While the implants’ size difference might not seem like such a big deal at first, mini implants offer far more advantages in terms of ease of placement, healing timeline, and affordability.

The Problems With Traditional Dentures

Fix-on-Six in Sterling Heights, MI | Mini Dental Implants | DenturesTraditional full and partial dentures have been the go-to solution for missing teeth for many years. They offer a quick fix, but over time, they can become a source of frustration due to their limitations. They don’t provide the same functionality for eating and speaking as your natural teeth, but chief among their problems is their tendency to lose their grip on your gums as your jawbone deteriorates. Poorly fitting dentures can slip, cause discomfort, and make it more difficult to eat and speak. Regular relinings and even the use of adhesives often fail to provide a lasting or satisfying solution.

So, what can you do about your loose or floating dentures? They need a stronger anchor point to attach to, which dental implants can provide, turning your ill-fitting dentures into implant dentures.

Introducing Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are a revolutionary step forward. By anchoring the dentures directly to your jawbone with dental implants, they offer a secure, stable, and more natural look and feel. Several types of implant dentures are available with various levels of removability and functionality. Historically, the All-on-4® system, which uses four of the larger, conventional dental implants, was the solution most dentists would recommend. However, those larger implants come with some drawbacks. They involve an invasive placement process, demand a lengthy healing time, and can require an additional bone graft for patients with reduced jawbone density.

However, there’s an implant that uses a more streamlined and minimally invasive procedure, allowing for quicker recovery and lower costs. Mini dental implants, the foundation of the Fix-on-Six® system, provide all those benefits. They allow you to enjoy your new teeth more quickly, and their small size and affordability make them an option for a wider range of patients. 

Why Choose Fix-on-Six Dentures?

Fix-on-Six® is a roundhouse bridge that stabilizes a full arch of teeth with six mini dental implants. The implants secure the denture and promote oral health thanks to their direct placement into the jawbone. This connection prevents the bone loss typically associated with traditional dentures and maintains your facial structure. Other advantages that Fix-on-Six have over conventional dentures include:

  • Enhanced stability: Fix-on-Six ensures your dentures stay in place, eliminating the discomfort and embarrassment of loose dentures.
  • Improved comfort: Implant dentures feel more like natural teeth. They’re attached to the jawbone, offering a peace of mind that traditional dentures can’t match.
  • Long-lasting solution: With proper oral hygiene, implants can last decades, making them a wise long-term investment.
  • Increased confidence: You won’t have to worry about dentures slipping while eating or speaking, making meals and other social situations much more enjoyable.

The Fix-on-Six Process

Thanks to mini implants, receiving your Fix-on-Six® dentures is quick and easy.

  1. Free consultation: We’ll begin with a thorough examination to assess your oral health and suitability for implant dentures. We’ll take X-rays and answer any questions, and our friendly, knowledgeable team will discuss financial options.
