A Reason to Smile Again with Full Mouth Dental Implants
We would all like to leave this earth with a full-mouthed smile, but this wish may not come true because tooth loss is common. Gum disease and extensive tooth decay may lead to missing teeth. Again, even those diligent in brushing and flossing, dental trauma, and worn-out teeth (due to teeth clenching) may point you towards a new set of teeth.
Fortunately, when looking for a tooth replacement, you are not only limited to traditional dentures. At General & Cosmetic Family Dental Clinic, we offer full mouth dental implants to replace your missing teeth, even if it’s an entire arch!
What are full mouth implants?
The first step to appreciating the value of full-mouth implants is understanding what an implant is. An implant is a tiny titanium screw inserted deep into your jawbone to act as a natural tooth root. Alongside an abutment (connector) and a crown (or any other prosthetic component), an implant replaces your entire tooth from the root up to the crown.
You might wonder how a screw replaces a natural tooth root. Well, the titanium screw is biocompatible, meaning that it fuses with the jawbone during the healing process. Once the implant is surgically inserted in your jawbone, it needs a few months to integrate with the bone to form a stable anchorage, just like your natural tooth root.
Here is the exciting part. You don’t need an implant for each lost tooth. If you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, you only need four implants placed at strategic locations in your mouth. These implants are then used to support a set of false teeth, which could be dentures or a bridge.
Benefits of full mouth dentures
Where do we even start? Full mouth implants have numerous benefits. Some include:
- They are far more stable than conventional dentures
- Implants prevent bone loss
- Easier to maintain compared to dentures
- Improve your overall appearance
- They are natural-looking
