Full arch dental implants are a permanent solution for patients with multiple missing or damaged teeth. The treatment involves placing four to eight implants to support a full-arch prosthesis (denture).
At Smile Design Implant Centers, full arch dental implants are a long-lasting, reliable treatment. While they are initially more expensive, they can provide patients with a better quality of life, enabling them to eat and speak more comfortably.
Who Is a Candidate for Full Arch Implants?
Full arch dental implants are an option for patients who have lost all their teeth or require a full arch of upper or lower teeth. Typically, a full arch restoration involves six to eight dental implants surgically placed into the jawbone. The implants are then left to heal for a period of three to six months. Once fully healed, the patient is ready to receive their restoration. Patients missing all of their teeth who elect to receive a full arch of upper or lower teeth may be better suited for implant retained dentures instead of full arch implants.
The Benefits of Full Arch Implants
Improved Eating and Speech
Because these restorations replace the entire arch of teeth, patients notice improved eating and speech after they're placed. Full arch dental implants are anchored, so patients never have to worry about slipping or falling out.
Improved Comfort and Confidence
Full arch dental implants are a permanent solution to several dental problems. Patients who have been living with dentures or partials know that this dental appliance doesn't bring the same level of comfort and confidence as fixed teeth. Full arch dental implants allow patients to feel confident and comfortable with their appearance since they won't have to worry about slipping, falling out, or feeling self-conscious.
Improved Facial Structure
Full arch dental implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth. They require no messy adhesives and can be removed only by a dentist. Full arch dental implants are secured using implant posts implanted into the jawbone. These posts fuse with the jawbone, providing a secure anchor for the prosthetic. A full arch restoration offers several benefits over removable dentures or partial dentures.
More Attractive Smile
With a full arch implant, patients can get a smile makeover. Implants replace teeth with permanent solutions. The implants fuse to the jawbone and can last a lifetime. If you don't like how your smile looks, you are likely an ideal candidate for full arch implants.
