Can I Replace All My Teeth with Full Arch Implants?

14 September,2020

Can I Replace All My Teeth with Full Arch Implants?

If you want to have all of your upper or lower teeth replaced, or all of your teeth replaced, full arch dental implants are a possible option for you. Unlike traditional dental implants that are made to replace a single tooth or numerous teeth in a row, full arch implants use a fixed bridge that will replace a whole row of missing teeth.Depending on the patient’s needs and condition, they might require 4 or 6 implants to support all the teeth in each arch.

Am I Eligible for Full Arch Implants?

Dental implants are not a suitable option for all patients. During your first appointment, your dentist will explain to you what is involved with the procedure, what the potential risks are, and the cost of dental implants to help you decide if this treatment is right for you.

Our dentist will look over your medical history to evaluate the state of your oral health and jaws to determine if you’re eligible for implants. You must be in good general health and have healthy gums to be deemed suitable to undergo this treatment.

As full arch implants are positioned on 45 degree angles in the jaw,you might be a suitable candidate for full arch implants even if you’ve been previously informed you’re not eligible for standard implants.

What Should I Expect After the Surgery?

Every dental surgery carries risks.Our dentist will explain all the potential complications and side-effects you may experience prior to having dental implants put in. Such complications include infections,mouth injuries incurred during the surgery, and sinus issues with implants placed in the upper jaw.

It might take a few weeks for a patient to fully recover from this procedure. They might experience pain, swelling or bleeding where the implant was placed.These issues can be taken care of with medication or by applying pressure to stop any bleeding. It is recommended that patients only eat soft foods after the surgery to help their mouth heal.
