Full Arch Dental Implants: The Future is Now

Since its inception, the field of dentistry has been ever evolving, particularly in the field of tooth extraction, replacement, and aesthetics.  In life, first impressions are everything, and, as we become more visual as a society and more engrossed in the world of social media and imagery than ever before, first impressions are also everywhere, making aesthetics all the more important.  But what if we could combine the great look of new teeth with the function of natural teeth for the perfect combination of aesthetics and function? 

Full Arch Dental Implants do just that for patients with decaying and missing teeth, and, with more than 38 million missing teeth in America, the time has never been better to take the leap toward a better looking, and healthier, mouth.  There are many names out there for full arch dental implants: Full Arch Technique, Teeth In A Day, Teeth Today, and All-on-4 to name a few.  How should you decide which is right for you?  The first step is knowing the difference.

Ultimately, full arch technique refers to replacing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth with typically 4-6 implants and attaching implant supported giving you new teeth.  This gives you the  stability and functionality of your natural teeth while looking and feeling like the real thing.  The number of implants often depends on the space available in the mouth and the bone available for the implant to be placed.  However, the technique itself used depends largely on the preference of the dental professional and will always be discussed with you by our team.

This technique often results in removing your decayed teeth. Placing the implants and attaching new teeth the same day. In most cases, these teeth are what we call a provisional meaning it is a temporary. Patients will wear that for three months and then the “final” is fabricated. Thus, you will never be without teeth!

Full Arch Dental Implants are a great alternative to traditional dentures when replacing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth!
