Restore Your Smile With Full Arch Dental Implants

You’re tired of wearing dentures that don’t fit right and never feel comfortable. Your old dentures are falling apart, and you want to get a new set, but you’re unsure what type of dental restoration will work best.
Imagine having a full set of teeth again without the hassle of dentures or removable partial dentures.
Full-arch implant restoration is a surgical procedure that entails precisely placing titanium implants in the jaw bone. These act as foundations for a full dental bridge of artificial teeth, which can provide complete tooth rehabilitation.
Treatment and recovery periods are greatly reduced because this procedure can provide the same structural support as standard single implant treatments with fewer implants and fewer incisions.

South Lake Smiles offers affordable dental implant solutions in South Lake, Western Australia and in nearby areas so you can get back the confidence and comfort of a complete set of teeth again.

The Benefits of Full Arch Implants

People who wear partial or complete dentures frequently choose full arch dental implants to improve their lives. There are numerous reasons for this, but the most important is appearance and feel. Full arch dental implants are both aesthetically pleasing and functionally as good as natural teeth. If you choose complete dental implants, you will experience the following advantages:

1.) Cost-effective treatment

Having a full arch of dental implants is significantly less expensive than getting one or two at a time like single tooth implant. You can avoid many appointments with the dentist if you receive a full arch at once. If you are seeking a full upper maxillary tooth replacement or a lower mandibular tooth replacement, you will benefit from fewer trips and save money overall.

2.) A long-lasting solution for missing teeth

Most full arch dental implants last between five and 15 years, but some can last even longer. When you have it all done at once, you are less likely to need to go back and forth to repair each tooth separately. In some cases, you can even get your entire arch implanted during the same appointment.

3.) Comfortable permanent solution

Dentures certainly serve a purpose in certain situations. However, they cannot compare with the stability and comfort of full arch implants. Full arch implants do not move position, do not irritate gums, and are barely felt by the wearer.

4.) Preserve your jawbone

A full arch of dental implants will improve the health of your jaw. When you lose your natural teeth, the underlying jawbone deteriorates where the teeth used to reside. Once your full arch of implants is in place, the implant posts will fuse to your upper and lower jawbones in the same way that your natural teeth did. You will have more defined facial contours and will appear younger with a healthier jawbone.

Why Choose South Lake Smiles For Full Arch Dental Implants

There’s a good chance that having several missing or damaged teeth is having a negative impact on your health, appearance, and self-esteem. It can affect how you eat, smile, and speak if your teeth aren’t functioning properly.

Imagine getting a new set of permanent or removable implant-supported dentures that look and feel like real teeth. Your quality of life will improve by being able to eat all the foods you love without worrying about how your smile looks.
Dental implants look, feel, and function like your natural teeth, so you can eat what you want when you want it. And since dental implants use your own bone as support instead of relying on adjacent teeth in your mouth, there’s no need to worry about them breaking down over time.
South Lake Smiles offers full-arch implant restorations for patients who have lost all their teeth on both the top and bottom arch. Our experienced team of professionals will work with you every step of the way to ensure you will receive an efficient and personalised treatment plan. You can now enjoy eating again without worrying about loose dentures slipping out of place and have a beautiful smile.

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.

Dental implants

  • 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.

Traditional dentures

  • 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.

Risks include infection of the implant sites, damage to nerves or blood vessels, and possible sinus problems. You will likely feel some pain and discomfort after the procedure, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Following the full-arch procedure, you can expect to feel some pain, swelling, and bleeding during the first two days. Our dentist may prescribe over-the-counter pain relievers to manage any discomfort. You can also expect the stitches in your gums to dissolve within a few days.
The cost of dental implants will vary depending on various factors, including the number of teeth that need to be replaced and whether a bone graft or sinus lift is required. In Australia, the cost of a simple dental implant might range between $3,000 and $5,500 per tooth. A dental implant in Australia can cost up to $5,514 per tooth, according to the national dental fee survey for 2020. Moreover, a single dental implant can be more expensive if you need a bone graft or sinus lift and may cost up to $11,500.
