Why Full Arch Implants?

tooth colored fillings Nashville TNWhy Full Arch Implants? Full-arch dental implants are a solution for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth and want to rebuild their entire set of teeth for better function and appearance, and as an option besides traditional dentures, which can cause problems slipping and getting cleaned properly. Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry – Dr. Dennis Wells can help you get the information you need to make an informed decision on full arch implants as opposed to dentures.

The Procedure Implants are placed through a series of visits over a few months. The first goal is to install several titanium “screw” implants into the jawbone to act as anchors for the replacement “teeth.” This initial task may be performed on the upper, lower arch, or both. Your dentist will ultimately determine the ideal placement and number of implants for each individual patient.

Over the next months, these anchors will fuse to the jawbone, heal, and strengthen. After this healing period, small posts called abutments are attached to the implants as a platform for the new tooth crowns. The patient is then fitted for replacement crowns that look and feel exactly like real teeth and are installed during the next appointment. Implant surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia. An entire full-arch restoration process needs multiple office visits and can take as long as a year to complete, depending on each patient’s unique case.

Recovery Most people find that full arch implants look and feel just like their regular teeth. They are strong, durable, long-lasting, and allow patients to enjoy restored function, ongoing dental health, and the feeling of a beautiful smile. You should be able to eat, drink, and speak normally after treatment. Implants, including the dentures, crowns, or bridges used, should be taken care of in the same way as regular teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and checkups. Patients should always practice good oral hygiene and see their dentist on a regular basis.
