Why Do I Need Full Arch Dental Implants?

If you're dealing with significant tooth loss, full arch dental implants can restore not only the aesthetics of your smile but also the functionality of your teeth. This comprehensive solution allows you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. It also eliminates the discomfort and inconvenience often associated with traditional dentures. Full arch implants are designed to mimic the strength and feel of natural teeth, which promotes jawbone health and prevents the bone loss that typically occurs with missing teeth.

Full Arch Dental Implant Treatment Options

  • Hybrid Implant Dentures: A fixed solution that combines the stability of implants with the coverage of dentures, offering a seamless and natural look that is not removable. It is the closest option to a natural set of teeth and can be delivered in one day.
  • Ball Attachment Dentures: These dentures snap onto attachments on the implants or a fabricated bar that is fixed to the implants. This option offers a secure fit that surpasses that of traditional dentures while being removable for cleaning.

Have questions? We’ve got answers.

What issues can full arch dental implants fix?

Full arch dental implants can resolve a wide range of issues stemming from significant tooth loss. They're ideal for those who have lost most or all of their teeth due to decay, gum disease, or injury. This solution can also fix problems like difficulty eating, speaking, and the lack of confidence that often comes with tooth loss. By providing a stable and permanent replacement, full arch implants can greatly improve oral function and aesthetics.

How long does the full arch dental implant process take?

The duration of the full arch dental implant process can vary, but it typically ranges from six months to a year. This timeline includes the initial consultation, the implant placement surgery, the healing period for osseointegration (where the implants fuse with the jawbone), and the attachment of the full arch prosthesis. The exact time depends on individual healing times, the need for any preliminary procedures such as bone grafting, and the specific details of your treatment plan.

What are my post-op instructions for full arch dental implants?

After receiving full arch dental implants, it's crucial to follow specific post-op instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and the success of your implants. These include eating soft foods while the surgical sites heal, maintaining good oral hygiene by carefully cleaning around the implants, and avoiding certain habits like smoking that can hinder the healing process. We will also provide guidance on managing any discomfort and scheduling follow-up visits to monitor your progress and ensure the implants are integrating successfully with your jawbone.
