Full Mouth Dental Implants

Full-mouth dental implants provide several advantages for teeth replacement. They look, feel, and perform like natural teeth, unlike other teeth replacement options such as dentures or dental bridges. They are designed to be long-lasting.

Why Choose Dental Implants to Replace Multiple Teeth?

Many people with missing teeth hesitate to consider dental implants due to time or cost concerns. However, they are often disappointed with the alternatives.

Several Advantages of full-mouth dental implants:

  1. Improved Oral Function: Dental implants provides a strong foundation for replacement teeth that will not shift. With implants, your full bite force is restored, and you can eat anything you enjoy without worrying about damaging your dentures. Speaking clearly can be an issue with dentures, which are prone to slipping and clicking. Some people lisp when trying to talk while wearing dentures. Missing teeth often have the same effect. Full-mouth dental implants allow you to speak clearly without worrying about your teeth interfering or slipping.
  2. Improved Appearance: Although dentures can resemble teeth, nothing looks as much like natural teeth as dental implants. The restorations attached to the implants are designed to mimic the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. Because a denture plate does not cover the gums, the teeth look like they are an organic part of your mouth.
  3. Improved Health: The loss of multiple teeth quickly leads to degeneration of the jawbone. The loss of bone, in turn, causes a sunken appearance in the face. Full-mouth dental implants preserve the strength of the jawbone by stimulating the bone whenever you chew. Dental implants also make it easier to care for your teeth. You brush and floss full-mouth dental implants just like you care for your natural teeth. The replacement teeth cannot develop cavities and are not easily stained,  minimizing the chance of an infection.

  5. A Permanent Solution: The portion of a dental implant placed in the jawbone is designed to last a lifetime. Made of titanium or ceramic, the implant fuses to the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, making it a part of the jawbone. The materials are biocompatible and safe for nearly anyone. Once placed, you should not have to replace your implants, which can last thirty or more years. The restorations replacing the visible portion of the teeth are also designed for longevity. Although they may eventually need replacing, they typically last 20 years or more because they are not worn down due to shifting, frequent removal, and other issues common to dentures and dental bridges.
  6. High Success Rate: The success rate of full-mouth dental implants surpasses 95%, making it one of the safest invasive dental procedures available. The outcome of dental implant surgery is almost always favorable. Recent advances in surgical placement, such as guided implant surgery and 3D imaging, have made full-mouth dental implants a reality for millions of patients who have happily tossed their dentures in favor of implants.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Full Mouth Dental Implants?

Anyone in good overall health is a good candidate for dental implants. If you have active gum disease, treatment is required before placing implants. Some patients may also need bone grafting to provide sufficient bone mass to support the implants and provide a secure foundation for full mouth restorations. Patients who are heavy smokers, severe diabetics, or suffer from certain bleeding disorders may not be candidates for dental implants.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

Getting full-mouth dental implants takes several months, depending on the type of implants, the need for bone grafting, the presence of gum disease, and other issues. Healing times can vary significantly from patient to patient, impacting the time needed.

There are several steps to the dental implant process, including:

  • A consultation to design your treatment plan
  • Initial surgical procedures or treatments before implant placement (periodontal care, bone grafting, or tooth extractions).
  • Implant placement performed by your oral surgeon.
  • Osseointegration and healing, which can take several weeks to several months.
  • Attaching abutments to the implants to connect them to dental restorations.
  • Attaching the final, custom-crafted dental restorations.
