Addressing Functional and Aesthetic Loss
Teeth play a vital role in the health of your mouth and body, aiding in the clarity of speech, providing smile and facial aesthetics, and preserving a healthy, strong jaw bone. Without a full arch of healthy teeth, these functions start to deteriorate, commonly taking an individual’s self-confidence along with it. Many times, patients turn to quick solutions, such as dental bridges or dentures, which provide adequate restoration of the smile, but cannot fully address continuing functional loss. If you have multiple missing teeth or complete tooth loss in one or both arches, there is hope! Dental implants have made it possible for us to replace a full arch of missing teeth while providing the greatest functional and beautiful outcomes possible. Many of our patients are exuberant about the immediate aesthetic results they receive with full arch dental implants, along with how improved their quality of life is with fully restored oral function!
Improving Oral Health and Aesthetics
Aside from a dramatic increase in smile aesthetics, full arch dental implants provide significant health benefits as well. Dental implants secured in the jaw bone both build a foundation for the new prosthesis or denture and stimulate the jaw bone by mimicking the natural stimulation provided by a tooth root. This halts further bone loss and even rebuilds new bone with help from bone grafting. When dental implants are the base for a prosthesis or denture, messy pastes and adhesives are eliminated, no more slipping or clicking occurs, and the beauty of healthy straight, white teeth is fully restored.
The benefits of full arch dental implants include:
- Increased self-confidence
- Permanent, stable solution
- Stimulates jaw bone health
- Improved facial appearance
- Restored quality of life
- Eliminates slipping or clicking
20 Years of Implant Dentistry Experience
The final results of full arch dental implants rely fully on the accuracy of pre-surgical procedures, precision during surgery, and how custom the prosthesis is made for each patient. All of these factors are directly related to the doctor carrying out these procedures and the quality of the dental lab. Dr. Dan Myers has 20 years of implant dentistry experience and leverages the use of advanced technology, such as the cone beam CT scan and guided implant placement to virtually eliminates any room for human error. Furthermore, we only collaborate with the highest quality labs to ensure prostheses have the most ideal look and fit. We strive to keep our standard of care high across all facets of your full arch dental implant treatment process in order to provide you with the best aesthetic and function outcomes possible.
Our Full Arch Solutions
We offer permanent full arch dental implants and removable implant supported dentures depending on the individual needs of our patients. Each provides unique advantages, and we can help you determine which option is best at your consultation. If necessary, we offer varying levels of sedation.
Full Arch Dental Implants
Four or six dental implants are strategically placed into the jaw bone, onto which a full-arch prosthesis is permanently secured. Full arch dental implants require the same at-home oral care as natural teeth, mimicking their look, function, and feel. They restore essential tooth function, smile aesthetics, and facial appearance.
Implant Supported Dentures
Dentures are secured to two or more dental implants to provide stability during normal functions such as biting and chewing. Implant supported dentures eliminate the need for pastes or adhesives and do not slip or fall out. They can be removed by the patient at night to be cleaned.
