However, many adults face the loss of a whole arch or many teeth even today which can be resolved effectively by an ingenious treatment known as ‘Full Mouth Dental Implants‘ or ‘Full Mouth Dental Restoration‘
Dental implants are one of the most popular methods of tooth restoration for those who have one or two teeth missing.
Providing a durable solution for numerous missing teeth or a full-arch loss, full mouth dental implants help in conserving the gums and jaw bone structure.
The dentist fixes in the gums four to eight implants per row of teeth. These implants help to stabilize and support the tooth, acting as the roots and blending with the jawbones.
Upon healing, a set of replacement teeth is placed on the implant anchors in the form of a dental bridge or custom-made dentures.
Types of Full Mouth Dental Implants
These types of full mouth dental implants primarily consist:
- Zirconia bridges
- Traditional removable prosthetics
- Full-implants and no-denture
What is the Procedure for Full Mouth Implants?
An outpatient procedure, the full mouth dental implant procedure is best performed by a competent dentist.
Morgan Hill Dentistry is renowned to have a team of expert doctors to efficiently carry out the procedure.
To start the process, the bone strength is assessed with some X-rays. The needed number of implants which will act as the tooth roots are inserted in the form of a titanium screw.
An abutment and the new tooth crown go into place, after the complete healing of the jawbone and gum.
With this, the process is complete providing the patient with a permanent and stable new tooth that is as good as a natural tooth in all respects.
However, we are often asked about the benefits of the full arch replacement. So in this article, we will talk about the advantages of this procedure.
What are the Advantages of Full Arch Dental Implants?
There are several reasons which make full mouth dental implants a better choice and a more reliable procedure to replace multiple missing teeth.
The full mouth implants do not only take less time than the single need for more teeth, but they also have several other benefits like:
Preservation of Bone Structure
The jawbone provides support to the gums which support the teeth. The tooth loss can change the facial structure as it leads to the loss of the jawbone strength and shrinkage of its height.
The corners of the mouth and cheeks can sag and sink in the process giving the mouth a drooping look. Providing the same support as natural teeth roots, the full mouth dental implants boost the stability provided to the artificial tooth crown, by adequately stimulating the bone in the jaw.
Full mouth dental implants allow you to eat your favorite foods, talk normally, and use the jaw without any problems.
Moreover, they stop the bone loss and prevent the gum bones from shrinking offering you a permanent solution that can last a lifetime.
Conservation of Neighboring Teeth
Full mouth dental implants can check the movement of the remaining normal teeth and prevent misalignment problems with your bite.
After you get full mouth dental implants, the remaining natural teeth do not need to fulfill the double-duty of bearing bite pressure of the artificial denture and bridge which can result in their weakening. Thus the wear and tear of the adjacent teeth can be prevented effectively!
The bone and gum that grow around the implant material provide substantial strength to the titanium dental implants preventing the need for the regular replacement that usually is the case with dentures or bridges.
Satisfactory oral hygiene, regular checkups and cleanings can make the full mouth dental implants last a lifetime.
A realistic look is one of the greatest upsides of dental implants. As you receive compliments for your gleaming smile, no one can notice the difference at all.
At Morgan Hill Dentistry we take utmost care to maintain the facial appearance during the restoration process, ensuring a beautiful smile on your face.
Suitable for People with Parafunctional Habits
Habits like clenching of teeth or bruxism can negatively impact regular implants and natural teeth causing them to develop cracks or get weak.
However full mouth implants provide more durability than regular implants making them more suitable for people with parafunctional habits.
Suitable for People with High Caries Index
Full mouth restoration can prove highly beneficial for People with high caries index, who can usually experience more cavities.
This can lead to damage to their teeth making them susceptible to losing teeth regularly, due to a lack of adequate knowledge and maintenance. Full mouth dental implants can prevent this issue to a great extent.
Ideal for Missing Multiple Teeth
A permanent solution with zero maintenance, full mouth implants are the most viable and beneficial option for people with multiple missing teeth.
Moreover, the patient has to experience much less discomfort and requires fewer visits to the dental office than are needed for replacing every single tooth.
