Missing All Teeth – Full Mouth or One Jaw Implants
Missing All Teeth Full Mouth Implants
When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, dental implants are the best permanent solution. Dr. Amin has been a local pioneer in the field of full mouth dental implants. He has placed thousands of dental implants for almost 15 years, and is considered an expert in the field.
Before dental implants, there were no solutions available for people who lost all their teeth besides full dentures. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge or implant over-denture that results in a permanent, stable and highly esthetic solution. In fact, dental implants have been used to replace dentures since 1965!
Benefits of Dental Implants:
- Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth.
- Are a solid, stable solution that will serve you for many years.
- Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss.
The treatment procedure and number of visits are largely dependent on the specific conditions. But all in all, a few visits should be enough to have the entire procedure completed. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated. In most cases, Dr. Amin will approach full mouth implants with the Prettau Dental Implant procedure.
COURSE OF TREATMENT: PLACING A FIXED IMPLANT BRIDGE – STEP-BY-STEP
1. Before the procedure
We determine what needs to be done by performing a very thorough exam. A panoramic x-ray will also be taken. A 3D scan will be necessary to evaluate your bone on a computer and do “virtual surgery.”
2. Placing the implants
The first step is placing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the final bridge to be installed.
3. Attaching bridge
The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. With a full jaw replacement like this, natural appearance and chewing function are restored.
4. End result
Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural – both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed implant bridge often describe this as an overwhelming and very positive experience.
