Full Arch Implants Q & A

What are full-arch implants?

Full-arch implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent restoration to enhance the function of your oral health and the beauty of your smile. The implants are surgically anchored directly into your jawbone to support your denture and to keep it secure and healthy. They also cover the upper or lower arch of your mouth, where you’re missing your teeth.

If you’re missing teeth or if your dentures slip, full-arch implants might be your answer. Talk to your dentist at the Center for Advanced Dentistry about the best option for your oral health needs.

What are the benefits of full-arch implants?

The advantages of getting full-arch implants include:

  • Restores the natural shape of your face
  • Protects your healthy jawbone
  • Helps you maintain the health of your surrounding teeth
  • Helps with your speech
  • Gives you the ability to smile and chew with confidence
  • Your implanted crowns can’t get cavities

Full-arch implants offer a permanent fix to enhancing the condition of your oral health.

How are full-arch implants placed?

To place full-arch implants, your dentist first gives you anesthesia to make sure you’re comfortable. Then small incisions are cut into your gums to make room for the titanium posts. The number of posts inserted depends on your treatment plan. 

Once healing occurs after about 6-12 weeks, your dentist bonds your permanent replacement teeth to your implants, and you see results immediately. You can walk out of the office with new teeth that look and feel completely natural, giving you the confidence to smile and chew food free of worry.

Does it hurt to get full-arch implants?

The team at the Center for Advanced Dentistry’s primary concern is your comfort level and successful outcome. Although you might have concerns about feeling pain during your procedure, you won’t feel a thing. Anesthesia eliminates all sensations throughout the treatment.

When your dentist places your full-arch implants, prescribed pain medication can help alleviate your feelings of discomfort when it’s over, if needed. When your mouth heals, all swelling and feelings of sensitivity should diminish. It takes very little time to get used to the new function and look of your new teeth.
