Full mouth implants are great for replacing the top or bottom teeth as well as the whole mouth. Instead of living with the discomfort and hassle of dentures, our patients can have beautiful smiles that function and look like natural teeth.
How Do Full Mouth Dental Implants Work?
Luckily you don’t need a dental implant for every missing tooth. With whole mouth dental implants, your dentist will place four implants on the top and four on the bottom of your jaw. Since the implant is made of titanium, it can fuse with your existing jaw bone and become part of it. After a while, your implants will make a strong foundation for your new teeth. Not only does this integration keep your teeth permanently in place, but it also prevents further bone loss in your jaw.
What to Expect from a Full Mouth Dental Implant Treatment
- Diagnostic and planning that includes CT scans, smile design, x-rays, and mock-ups.
- Six to eight dental implants are placed in the upper jaw.
- Four to six dental implants are placed in the lower jaw.
- While the implants integrate with the jaw, temporary teeth are put in place.
- Natural-looking porcelain teeth are attached to the implants by screws or dental cement.
Types of Full Mouth Dental Implants
We use just four implants on either the top or bottom of your mouth to replace missing teeth. The All-on-4® teeth-in-a-day treatment improves the look and function of your mouth and feels like natural teeth.
Zirconia All-on-4® dental implants use non-reactive and non-metal materials, making them perfect for those with metal allergies. Zirconia boasts durability and better hygiene since plaque doesn’t stick to it as much compared to older materials.
