What can I expect from full mouth replacement?
Full mouth replacement is used to treat all missing teeth on the top, bottom, or both arches. Traditionally, dentures are used, which have undergone several improvements to the methods and materials used. This has made them look and feel more natural, but there are still limitations.
As an alternative, you can choose the security of dental implants anchoring your denture to your jawbone. When choosing dental implants, you will advantage from:
A traditional denture is held to your gum tissue using suction or an adhesive. Implant-retained dentures use strategically placed dental implants to hold the arch in place. After ensuring you have adequate bone density, an average of 6 to 10 implant posts are surgically placed into your jawbone. You spend the next several months healing to allow your jawbone to fuse to the posts before being fitted with your permanent denture, which clips onto the posts using special fixtures.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-On-4 is another type of implant-supported denture. It differs from the standard treatment because only 4 implant posts are used to support the denture. Although fewer posts are needed, you will enjoy the same benefits as the traditional option with a couple of other advantages as well.
The posts are placed into the thickest parts of the jaw. As a result, this can eliminate the need for bone grafting for patients who have lost density in their jaw. Often, you can also be fitted with a temporary denture the same day as your placement surgery, so you do not need to go without any teeth while you heal.
