Achieve the Complete, Healthy Smile You Deserve
There are two arches of teeth in your mouth, and a full set of healthy teeth in both arches is essential for a functioning, confident smile. Patients who struggle with many missing or failing teeth can achieve a beautiful and healthy smile through full-arch restoration, a treatment that uses dental implants to support a fixed prosthesis—with just one surgical visit!
Our surgeons at Akeso Oral, Facial & Dental Implant Surgery specialize in implant-based restoration. Using the latest 3D imaging technology and state-of-the-art implant systems, we achieve natural-looking and predictable results that will restore your oral health, oral function, and confidence. Contact our office in Columbia, Catonsville, Lutherville, and Westminster, MD, today to begin your smile restoration journey.
What Is Full-Arch Restoration With Dental Implants?
Full-arch restoration is a life-changing oral surgery procedure that involves placing multiple dental implants into the upper and/or lower arches. Then, a custom-made denture is attached to the implants, providing you with a brand new arch of teeth. The new arch of teeth will look and feel natural and restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently and comfortably.
With dental implants supporting your new teeth, you enjoy the stability and health benefits of dental implants, plus the convenience of a fixed restoration. Enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about uncomfortable appliances or having to take your teeth out around others. When you restore your smile with an implant-supported denture, you also restore your oral health and confidence!
Dentures or Dental Implants?
Traditional dentures rest on the bony ridge in the mouth, while dental implants are inserted into the jaw bone. Dentures must be taken out during meals and brushing, which many patients find inconvenient or embarrassing. They require special rinses to keep clean and adhesives to stay in your mouth. If dentures are not professionally fitted, they can cause oral sores or slip when speaking.
Dental implants secure your prosthesis in place. There are no products or adhesives required to keep your fixed denture clean—simply brush and floss normally. When teeth are missing, the jaw bone does not receive the stimulation it needs to stay healthy and deteriorates over time. Dental implants fuse to the jaw bone, stimulating the bone to keep it healthy and preventing bone loss caused by missing teeth. Many patients who wear full or partial dentures turn to implants because they are more comfortable, function like natural teeth, and contribute to better long-term oral health.
Am I a Candidate for Full-Arch Restoration?
The ideal candidate for full-mouth rehabilitation is someone who is missing most or all of their teeth (edentulous). When placing traditional dental implants, some patients also require a bone graft to reverse bone loss that has occurred and provide a solid foundation for the implant. Full-arch restoration reduces or eliminates the need for bone grafting, even if you have experienced major bone loss. This makes full-arch restoration an option for patients who desire implant-based restorations but who cannot undergo bone grafting treatments.
If you have lost or are on the verge of losing most of your teeth, our team at Akeso Oral, Facial & Dental Implant Surgery can create a personalized treatment plan to restore beauty and health to your smile. Contact one of our offices today for a consultation to explore your tooth replacement options and see if full-arch restoration is right for you.
Full-Arch Restoration Process
During your first visit, we will take 3D scans of your mouth and face. Using these detailed images, we will locate areas of the jaw bone with enough density to support the implant and plan every detail of the surgical procedure. IV sedation is often used for this surgery, although there are many anesthesia options available for your comfort.
Full-arch restoration requires only one surgical procedure to insert the implants. During the procedure, your oral surgeon will first extract the remaining teeth in the dental arch. Your surgeon will make incisions in the gum tissue, insert the dental implants, and place sutures as needed to close the incisions. We will attach a temporary prosthesis to the implants, which you will wear during the healing period, and you will leave our office with a brand new smile.
Over the next few months, the implants will fuse to the jaw bone. Once they have fully healed, your restorative dentist will attach the final prosthesis to your implants, completing your smile transformation.
