Full-Mouth Dental Implant Therapy

Posted in Dental Implants

For patients missing all of their natural teeth or those who need to have all of their teeth removed, there is an alternative to traditional dentures. Full-mouth dental implant treatment options open the way for individuals to once again enjoy a strong bite and beautiful smile.

If you are ready to consider a more permanent replacement for lost teeth, we are happy to work with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. A couple of helpful options for you to consider are implant-supported bridges or dentures.

Benefits

The prosthesis will provide you with strong and natural-looking teeth as regular dentures do, but has the added benefit of anchoring securely onto a few implants placed at key locations in the mouth.

Dental implants are integrated into the bone of your mouth and prevent resorption, which can occur with regular dentures. Full-mouth implants will enhance the shape of your face, restore strength to your bite, and give you a beautiful smile.

Additionally, implant-supported bridges and dentures tend to be easier to care for than traditional dentures.

How Do You Get Started?

A thorough exam will enable me to determine both where teeth should be located on a fixed denture as well as optimal locations for implant-placement. Once we draft the plan of action, the first step involves surgical placement of the implant abutments, or anchors. After a period of healing, the customized full-bridges or dentures will be delivered to you and secured over the abutments. The time needed for this process varies.
