The full-arch dental restoration is an innovative tooth replacement procedure that is available to patients who need a full arch of teeth restored. This streamlined procedure offers a quicker recovery time at a fraction of the cost of other replacement options. In this treatment, four specialized implants are surgically placed in the patient’s upper or lower jaw. Once the procedure is complete, an entire arch of beautiful white teeth is attached to the implants.
Why choose the full-arch dental restoration?
If you have lost most of your teeth, it can be difficult to find a cost-effective replacement option that restores both function and aesthetics to your mouth. Options such as removable dentures or numerous implants are not only costly but can involve a lengthy procedure and healing process. Luckily, with the doctors here at Permian Basin Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, you have an alternative option — full-arch dental restoration.
In most cases, the entire surgical procedure can be completed in one visit. This is very desirable for surgeons and patients alike because it decreases the amount of post-surgical discomfort, bruising, and swelling that many patients experience with other replacement options. In addition, this procedure is much less expensive and time-consuming than replacing an entire arch of teeth with individual implants. Patients are able to solve both their functional and aesthetic problems in this one restoration.
There are several benefits to full-arch dental restoration, including
- Increased Functionality. Full-arch dental restoration anchors implants at an angle, ensuring that the replacement teeth are secure and supported. The highest ratio of implant-to-bone contact is achieved.
- Increased Flexibility. Patients may be able to start enjoying the benefits of their new arch of teeth right away. After the implants are placed into the jaw, you will receive a temporary set of dentures to use while your permanent dentures are made. This technique avoids the delay that accompanies many other surgical procedures used to replace teeth.
- Improved Clinical Results. Unlike other procedures, full-arch dental restoration uses cutting edge technology, imaging, and materials to allow for the most predictable result possible.
Are you a candidate for full-arch dental restoration?
If you are on the verge of losing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth, wear a prosthesis (such as dentures), or have lost almost all of your teeth, you may be a candidate for full-arch dental restoration. Many patients who are not suitable for traditional replacement options, such as a fixed bridge, are still able to be candidates for this unique treatment. If you think you may be a candidate for this procedure or want to learn more information about it, we encourage you to call our office and schedule an initial consultation.
