If you’re searching for the right denture solution, comfort, convenience, and cost are typically the three guiding stars to help you navigate your choices. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find a denture option that ticks all the boxes? Imagine not having to compromise on comfort for affordability or convenience. Consider how it would feel to wear a denture that fits so well you almost forget it’s there. And when it comes to cost, what if you could choose a solution that provides long-term value without breaking the bank? Implant denture options like All-on-4 offer greater stability, but alternatives like Fix-on-Six, supported by mini dental implants, offer a more affordable and practical solution.

With all that’s possible in dentistry today, don’t you think it’s time you found a denture that truly fits your life?

Why Choose a Roundhouse Implant Bridge?

Conventional dentures address the immediate concern of replacing missing teeth and offer a quick fix. However, because they simply rest on top of the gums, they often lack stability and can be uncomfortable. This surface-level solution means that while you might look like you have all of your teeth, the prosthetic doesn’t really feel natural or function properly. For instance, it can slip when you’re eating or talking, which not only feels awkward but can lead to sore gums and discomfort.

On the other hand, roundhouse bridges connect directly to dental implants inserted into the jaw. This option replaces a full arch of teeth but eliminates the issues associated with full dentures. While conventional dentures may cause gagging or trap food particles due to their mobility, roundhouse bridges won’t budge. They are much more comfortable and easier to care for, making them a better choice for many of our patients.

Choosing a roundhouse implant bridge offers many benefits. This prosthetic feels more natural, and the implants provide stability that traditional dentures just can’t match. You’ll enjoy a comfortable, secure fit that lets you eat, speak, and smile confidently, knowing your dentures are anchored and feel like your own teeth.

Fix-on-Six and All-on-4: The Mini Implant Difference

When considering restoration options, it’s important to understand that not all implant dentures are created equal. The All-on-4® and Fix-on-Six® systems offer effective solutions but have key differences worth noting. For example, All-on-4 uses traditional dental implants, which are about 5 millimeters in diameter. Due to their size, these implants require a more substantial bone structure and a longer healing period.

In contrast, the Fix-on-Six system employs mini dental implants, which are much smaller—typically less than 3 millimeters in diameter. Their smaller size makes them less invasive to place, simplifying the procedure and speeding up the treatment timeline. Mini dental implants stand out because they can facilitate the “immediate loading” of a prosthetic onto the implants. That means Dr. Apel can attach new teeth the same day your implants are placed, offering immediate functionality. This quick outcome is a significant advantage if you’re looking for an efficient denture alternative with minimal disruption to your daily life.

It’s also important to consider how these systems distribute the load of your denture. The All-on-4 system uses four traditional dental implants to support a full-arch bridge. Due to the smaller number of implants, each implant carries a significant load. If one of these implants fails, the remaining three endure extra stress, which could compromise the function and durability of your new teeth.

Conversely, the Fix-on-Six system incorporates six to 10 mini implants. Not only is placing these implants less invasive (even when there are more of them), but they can spread the bite forces more evenly across the jaw. The even distribution helps create a more secure, stable, and durable dental solution, offering a significant advantage in longevity and comfort.

Fix-on-Six: Understanding the Costs

The Fix-on-Six® system is generally more cost-effective than the All-on-4 system. This cost advantage stems from our use of mini dental implants.

Traditional implants are larger and require a more involved procedure, which often includes a bone graft. For patients with insufficient jaw space for conventional implants, bone grafting is needed to create a solid foundation. Unfortunately, it adds to the complexity and cost of the treatment. In contrast, mini dental implants are smaller and typically don’t require bone grafts, making the procedure much simpler. These benefits also mean that you spend less time in the dental chair and accrue fewer overall costs.
