Dental Implants Can Support a Full Mouth of Natural-Looking Teeth
With all the advancements being made in the field of dentistry, our oral surgeons can now replace full arches of teeth using dental implants. In a full-arch restoration procedure, also known as the All-on-4® treatment concept or Teeth-in-a-Day, dental implants act as a base for a permanent set of new teeth.
Top 5 Benefits of Full-Arch Restoration
Full-arch restoration is both the most effective and most beneficial option for multiple tooth replacement. Now, patients can restore their confidence and leave our office with a new, natural-looking, complete set of teeth. The top benefits of this amazing procedure include:
- Prevent dental and facial features from shifting.
- Eliminate the risk of dentures slipping, falling out, or causing sores.
- Enjoy having a beautiful smile that looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth.
- Dental implants stimulate the jaw bone, which maintains the jaw’s structural integrity and prevents deterioration.
- Only one surgical procedure is needed, which eliminates the need for future procedures and costly upkeep.
How Does a Full-Arch Restoration Procedure Work?
In the past, traditional dentures were typically the only option for replacing a full arch of teeth. Today, as few as four implants can be used as a stable base for a permanent denture. This denture is custom-made to resemble your natural teeth, and because it attaches to dental implants, it functions like natural teeth as well.
During your first visit, we will likely take 3D CBCT scans of your face and mouth to get a clear understanding of your dental and facial features. We will discuss your anesthesia and sedation options, as well as answer any questions you may have.
On the day of your surgery, your selected form of anesthesia will be administered. When you are comfortable, your doctor will perform any necessary tooth extractions and carefully place the dental implants. After a short healing period, your custom full-arch prosthesis will be affixed to the dental implants by your restorative dentist.
