Welcome to The Practice, where we are committed to helping you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. Whether you have lost all your teeth or are facing extensive dental issues, full-mouth dental implants offer a comprehensive solution to restore both functionality and aesthetics to your mouth.
What Are Full-Mouth Dental Implants?
Full-mouth or full-arch dental implants are a revolutionary solution for individuals with significant tooth loss or those struggling with ill-fitting dentures. This procedure involves replacing all teeth on the upper, lower, or both with implant-supported prosthetics. Unlike dentures, these implants offer stability, functionality, and a natural aesthetic, giving you the confidence to smile, speak, and eat comfortably.
Benefits of Full-Mouth Dental Implants
Enhanced Stability and Functionality
The implants are surgically anchored into the jawbone as artificial tooth roots. This ensures a secure fit and enhances the functionality. Whether enjoying your favorite meal or engaging in a conversation, these implants integrate into your daily life.
Preservation of Jawbone Health
Beyond the visible improvements, full-mouth dental implants contribute to the preservation of jawbone health. Stimulating the underlying bone helps prevent bone loss. This feature maintains facial structure and aesthetics and promotes oral health.
Boosted Confidence and Aesthetics
Regaining a full set of teeth impacts one’s confidence and aesthetics. The customized prosthetics ensure a seamless blend with your features. With a radiant smile, you can approach life with newfound confidence.
The Full-Mouth Dental Implant Procedure
Embarking to full-mouth dental implants begins with a consultation at The Practice. We assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and formulate a treatment plan. Advanced imaging technologies allow us to plan the placement of implants, ensuring optimal functionality and aesthetics.
Surgical Implant Placement
This step requires skill and precision, and at The Practice, our team ensures a comfortable and efficient procedure. The implants become sturdy anchors for the prosthetics attached in the later stages.
Osseointegration – Fusing with Your Bone
This is where the dental implants fuse with the jawbone, creating a stable foundation. This takes a few months, during which check-ups at The Practice are scheduled to monitor progress.
Customized Prosthetic Attachment
Once osseointegration is complete, the final phase involves the attachment of the prosthetics. Crafted to match your natural teeth’ shape, size, and shade, these prosthetics are affixed to the implants. The result is a restored set of teeth.
Aftercare and Maintenance
After completing full-mouth dental implant treatment, we provide post-procedure care guidelines. These instructions ensure a smooth recovery and help you adapt to your new, improved oral function.
Check-ups and Maintenance
Our team at The Practice will schedule periodic appointments to assess the stability of the implants and the condition of your prosthetics and address concerns you may have.
