Full-Arch Implant Solutions vs. Traditional Dentures
No replacement beats natural teeth. But when extensive tooth loss occurs, our experienced periodontists offer the dental implant procedures you need to enjoy high-quality living once again! For many years, removable dentures were the only option for replacing multiple or a full-arch of teeth. However, patients often report dentures to be uncomfortable, inconvenient and irritating to their gums and mouth. Full-arch implant solutions offer a more functional alternative, and bring a wealth of benefits simply unmatched by dentures.
Unique Full-Arch Benefits
36 million Americans do not have any teeth
Benefits of full-arch implants solutions over traditional dentures include:
- Permanent replacement with proper care
- Greater comfort
- Integrate with the jaw bone
- Help maintain bone health
- Do not slip, click or irritate gums
- Strong, stable biting function
- Feel, look and act like natural teeth
- Increase confidence and quality of life
There Are Several Full-Arch Implant Options
Revolutionary full-arch implant options have completely changed the prospect of living with extensive tooth loss. Even if your tooth loss is a result of a traumatic event, these long-term solutions offers a comfortable, natural-looking smile, and increased biting and chewing capabilities.
All-on-4® Dental Implants Technique
With this treatment, we strategically place a series of four to six implants within the arch in areas with the most bone. These implants are designed to support a highly aesthetic, fully functional new set of teeth. All-on-4 patients report high-levels of satisfaction and are able to enjoy their new smiles from day one.
Implant Supported Dentures
This full-arch option supports a denture by two or more dental implants placed strategically within the jaw. Once the implants have firmly integrated with your bone, a natural-looking, fully functional denture can be attached to provide increased stability and biting strength.
