The procedure involves fixing a full prosthesis (denture) in your mouth using as few as four dental implants. The dental implant posts ensure that your replacement teeth are securely held in place while also preventing bone resorption (bone loss around missing tooth sites). You will no longer have to worry about your dentures slipping, falling out, or causing discomfort because of an improper fit. Full-arch restorations are an extremely efficient way to replace many or all of your missing teeth.
Benefits of Full-Arch Restorations
Full-arch restorations allow patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Some of the benefits patients can expect to experience after receiving their new teeth include
- An attractive new smile
- No removable parts that slip or cause sores
- Improved ability to chew food
- Bone loss prevention, preserving facial structure
Full-Arch Restoration Procedure
Full-arch restoration is usually completed in one or two surgical procedures. The first procedure involves placing the dental implants, and either that same day or during a second procedure, your full arch of teeth will be attached to the implants. If we cannot place your new teeth during your first procedure, your dentist can make a temporary set of teeth for you to wear while your restorative dentist fabricates your final set of teeth.
Most patients undergo IV sedation during the procedure. Once we administer your anesthetic, your oral surgeon will place the dental implants to ensure a stable, secure hold. After surgery, the implant sites will need some time to heal. This healing period allows your dental implants to fuse with the bone beneath your gums. You may have to adhere to a soft food diet at this time. Once fully healed, we can place your permanent prosthesis, allowing you to start enjoying your favorite foods again. Our full-arch patients express that they are extremely satisfied with the results they receive from their full-arch restoration.
