The Benefits of Full-Arch Implant Restorations

Long-Lasting Results

Compared to traditional dentures, full-arch implant restorations have a much longer lifespan. Dental implants are a truly permanent solution for tooth loss. If you care for your mouth properly, your dental implants can easily last many years, and may even last for the rest of your life.

Better Oral Health

Unlike dentures, full-arch implant restorations help protect your jaw bone and your appearance. Over time, tooth loss can cause your appearance to look “sunken,” since your jaw bone will begin to weaken. Dentures can’t stop this from happening, but full-arch implant restorations can. Your dental implant will stimulate and protect your bone, and help preserve both your oral health and your appearance.

Improved Fit, Comfort, And Functionality

Even the best dentures sometimes shift, move, or slip. This can make it harder to eat, chew, smile, and speak confidently. But this isn’t the case with full-arch implant restorations. They're fixed to dental implants that won’t ever move or shift. That means you can enjoy a better fit, more natural appearance, and improved performance compared to traditional dentures.

The Full-Arch Implant Restoration Process

Extractions & Implant Placement

First, you'll meet with Dr. Smythe for a consultation and CBCT to determine if you are a candidate. Your dentist will take measurements ahead of time to prepare the temporary teeth. Most patients are sedated for the procedure. The remaining teeth will be extracted and the bone smoothed. During that same procedure, 4-6 dental implants will be placed in the upper, lower or both jaws. The new teeth will then be attached to the implants. This is all done in one office with your oral surgeon, dentist, and lab for you convenience.

Building your Temporary Restoration and Healing

Once your implants are placed, both your dentist and the lab will be at our surgical office to make your set of temporary teeth. In most cases when your bone is strong enough, these teeth will be connected to the implants the SAME DAY as your surgery. The initial healing process just takes a few weeks, but it will take 3-6 months for your bone to fully fuse with your implants.

Permanent Implant Restoration Placement

Once your mouth is fully healed and your implants are integrated, you will return to our office to check the implants and ensure that the bone has healed properly around them. Dr. Smythe will then communicate with your dentist to begin the process of making the final set of teeth that are even more natural and durable.

Frequently Asked Questions

In many cases, yes. Depending on the state of your oral health, and how much preparation is required, some patients will be able to receive a brand new smile in just one visit. However, in more complex cases, additional healing time may be required in between surgeries to ensure successful treatment.

Although your new smile won’t be susceptible to cavities or other forms of decay, it is still vital that you follow good oral hygiene practices to avoid developing gum disease. We recommend using a water flosser in addition to brushing your teeth.

It is important to note that a full-arch implant restoration consists of the placement of two separate elements: the implants themselves and the implant-supported denture. While dental implants can last a lifetime, this relies on many factors such as age, oral health, oral hygiene and the impact of other remaining teeth. The teeth on top of the implants may wear down over time due to regular forces like chewing or speaking. Most patients can expect their prosthetic to last 20 or more years before needing to be replaced.

Yes! Made of durable, high-quality materials, one of the biggest advantages of full-arch implant restorations is that they look and feel just like the real thing. Full-arch implant restorations allow you to speak, laugh, smile with confidence, and enjoy all of your favorite foods. By staying on top of your oral hygiene habits and routine dental visits, you can can prolong the look, feel, and function of your restoration for years to come.

Full-arch implant rehabilitation can be an excellent option for patients who have lost all or most of their natural teeth due to gum disease, tooth decay, or dental trauma. However, it is  important to note that your mouth and jaw must be in relatively good health, with adequate bone quantity and density for successful treatment. Get in touch with Dr. Smythe today to schedule a consultation and find out if full-arch implants are the right choice for you.
