Frequently Asked Questions About Full Arch Dental Implants
If you have lost most or all of your teeth, or if your remaining teeth have been severely affected by decay or gum disease and must be extracted, our dentists may offer this treatment.
You must have adequate bone and gum tissue for the implants to be placed to be eligible for this treatment. Because dental implants are permanent and require adequate jawbone support, they are not recommended for young patients who may not have all of their adult teeth or whose jawbone has not yet fully developed.
Being generally healthy and having good oral health are other key factors to being a suitable candidate for full-arch implants. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or oral health problems, you must inform the dentist during your appointment. It is also better if the candidate is not a smoker and can commit to have good oral hygiene rutine.
- Implants require enough bone in which to place screw-like implants that are capped with crowns.
- They have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially among adults ages 55 to 64, according to a 2018 study.
- A dental implant is made by first extracting a damaged root.
- A metal prosthetic root, called a post, is implanted deep into the bone.
- The top of the post will be fitted with a crown, but not until the bone has started to grow around the post, securing it in place.
- Dentures are removable, prosthetic teeth that can be fitted to your mouth regardless of how much bone is present.
- Dentures can be complete sets to replace all the teeth on the upper or lower jaw, or be made to replace just a few missing teeth.
- There are other types of dentures, including partial dentures.
- A preliminary set of dentures is then made in a lab and sent to your dentist.
- The dentures will be placed in your mouth and any needed adjustments to the alignment or length of the teeth will be made before a final set of dentures is produced.
Sedation. We will administer local anaesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure. If you are nervous about dental treatments and need some assistance to feel at ease, you can consider further sedation options with the dentist.
Tooth extraction. If you still have any natural teeth that need to be removed, the dentist will perform a tooth extraction prior to the implant procedure. If we need to extract a large number of teeth, or if we notice signs of gum disease or infection, we may place temporary provisional teeth and continue your dental procedure after your mouth has healed.
Placement of the implant. Our dentists will prepare the implant sites to prevent infection once your mouth is ready for implants. The titanium implants will next be firmly placed in your jaw after we delicately make incisions in your gums. Typically, two implants are inserted in the front of the mouth and two in the back, but depending on the size and condition of your jaw, you may require extra implants.
Osseointegration. This begins once the metal implant post is placed in your jawbone. The jawbone grows onto and joins with the surface of the dental implant throughout this procedure. This process, which can take several months, serves to establish a stable foundation for your new artificial tooth, just as roots do for natural teeth.
Placing the dental bridge or crown. Our dental team will next clean and disinfect the affected areas before attaching your prosthetic dental bridge. Our dentists create replacement teeth that closely resemble natural teeth and are firmly attached to the implants.
Generally, it takes approximately one to two hours to place a single dental implant. After the implant sites have been osseointegrated for approximately three to nine months, We will begin creating a crown or bridge to go over the post.
