What Are Full Mouth Dental Implants?

Full Mouth Dental Implants AnatomyFull mouth dental implants are designed to restore a complete arch of upper or lower teeth or both. With full mouth dental implants, around six optimally placed implants support a full arch bridge of 10 or 12 teeth. These dental implants are placed evenly across the upper or lower arch and provide excellent support for the new bridge of teeth. It is a great treatment for people who have lost all of their teeth and who are interested in a long-term solution that provides them with teeth firmly fixed in place.

Who Is Suitable for Full Mouth Dental Implants?

As with any implant treatment, you will need a thorough dental examination and be prepared to disclose your medical history, including a complete list of all medical conditions and medications currently used. It is important to be completely open about your medical history just in case there is something that could mean implant treatment is not the best option. While dental implants are a great solution for most people, a few factors can suggest an alternative treatment may be more suitable, including:

However, gender isn’t a factor, and neither is age, provided you are over age 18.

Planning and Placing Full Mouth Dental Implants

The entire process of receiving full mouth dental implants can be broken down into several steps:

What to Expect After Surgery for Full Mouth Implants?

Full Mouth Dental ImplantsIt typically takes at least three months for the implants to finish fusing with your jawbone. During the healing period, you will receive temporary teeth to use so you can eat comfortably and talk and socialize with others confidently. If you currently wear a denture, this may be adapted for use during this time, but otherwise, a new temporary prosthesis can be made.

After your implants have healed fully with your jawbone, you can return to see your implant dentist for the final set of dental impressions. These impressions are used to create your permanent teeth, which will look and feel much better than your temporary teeth. It might take a while for your new teeth to feel entirely natural and for you to become accustomed to eating with them, and this is perfectly normal. Once your teeth settle down, you will find you can enjoy a much greater range of foods and that your teeth will feel very natural and comfortable. Most importantly, dental implants help to preserve your jawbone, ensuring the bone around the implants remains strong and healthy.

Full mouth dental implants can completely restore both the appearance and function of your teeth, and you can care for them just like you would your natural teeth. Schedule your consultation with a skilled restorative dentist and expert periodontist in Queens, NY, today and gain renewed confidence in your smile.
