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 dental implants, or full-arch dental implants, are restorative dental procedure that involves replacing all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw with dental implants. Unlike traditional dentures, full-mouth dental implants provide a permanent solution for individuals who have lost all their teeth or suffer from extensive tooth decay or damage. The procedure involves the placement of multiple dental implants that act as anchors for a custom-made set of prosthetic teeth, ensuring a secure and natural-looking smile.
Benefits of Full Mouth Dental Implants
Opting for full-mouth dental implants offers a multitude of benefits. Firstly, they provide a permanent solution, eliminating the need for removable dentures and messy adhesives. The implants are firmly anchored to the jawbone, creating a stable and comfortable foundation for the prosthetic teeth. This allows for improved speech, chewing functionality, and overall oral health. Additionally, full-mouth dental implants restore facial aesthetics by preventing bone loss and preserving the face’s natural contours. The prosthetic teeth are carefully designed to match your natural teeth’ shape, size, and color, resulting in a seamless and beautiful smile.

Before & Afters
The Full Mouth Dental Implant Procedure
Initial Consultation and Treatment Planning
The journey to a new smile begins with an initial consultation at The Practice. During this appointment, our experienced dental team will assess your oral health, discuss your goals and concerns, and determine if full-mouth dental implants are the right option for you. We will take dental impressions, X-rays, and scans to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
The next step involves the surgical placement of the dental implants into the jawbone. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort. Our skilled oral surgeon will strategically place the implants in optimal positions to support the prosthetic teeth effectively. The implants will then undergo a healing process known as osseointegration, during which they fuse with the jawbone, providing a strong and durable foundation for the prosthetics.
Prosthetic Teeth Placement
Once the dental implants have fully integrated with the jawbone, the next phase of the treatment involves the placement of the custom-made prosthetic teeth. Our dental laboratory will meticulously craft the prosthetics to match your natural teeth in color, shape, and size. The prosthetic teeth will be securely attached to the dental implants, ensuring a comfortable and functional bite. Our team will make any necessary adjustments to achieve optimal fit and aesthetics, resulting in a natural-looking smile that enhances your facial features.
