Benefits of full arch implants.

What are the benefits of full arch implants?

When all teeth are missing or in a condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best solution.  Prior to dental implants, there were no fixed options for people who lost all of their teeth.  Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a stable and high esthetic solution.
  • Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth
  • A solid, stable solution that will serve you long term
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

What is the typical course of treatment for full arch implants?

1: Before the procedure An examination and CT scan is taken to  determine the course of treatment which may include extractions, bone grafting, sinus augmentation, or other preliminary procedures. 2: Installing the implants The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the bridge to be installed. 3: Attaching the bridge The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. Additional connecting devices needed to attach multiple replacement teeth to the implants may be placed at this time. 4: End result Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural – both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this as a very positive experience.

What are the alternatives to a fixed bridge?

An alternative to a fixed bridge is a removable overdenture, which is anchored on implants. The old fashioned denture without implants has many disadvantages and is not ideal. Removable, implant anchored overdenture A removable full denture that is connected to either a ball or bar attachment, which in turn is anchored on two or more implants in the front part of the jaw. The implants help keep the denture in place and provide better function and comfort. Cost is usually the reason why this solution is chosen over a fixed bridge. Removable full denture A denture that is loosely placed on top of the gum to cover the lost teeth. This alternative has no real advantages – except for its low price and easy installation. The disadvantages are many: discomfort in eating, poor esthetics, affected speech, and sore gums from denture movement. Moreover, a full denture placed in the upper jaw severely reduces the sense of taste.
