Permanent Full Arch Implants

In the past people were limited to removable dentures

Other people underwent multiple procedures to replace each of their teeth with dental implants. Modern advancements in implants allow us to replace a full arch of teeth in one day – without extensive bone grafting and in a shorter treatment time.

How does it work?

We no longer need an implant to replace every missing tooth. With our advanced Revive-a-Smile treatment system, a full arch of teeth can be replaced using 4 dental implants.

Using the latest technology, we can plan and insert each implant precisely into your jaw. Once placed, these implants are then rigidly connected forming a single unit. This allows for an even distribution of the forces of your bite.

With this solid foundation we can attach a permanent dental bridge that will look and function just like your natural teeth. This enhanced strength and rigidity allows your bone to heal tightly around the implants while your new teeth are in place – avoiding removable dentures entirely.

What are the benefits of full arch dental implants?

Your teeth can be replaced in just one day.

  • With our Revive-a-Smile system you can have your teeth removed, implants placed, and a custom set of new teeth produced and secured to your dental implants in just one day.

You can feel more comfortable talking, smiling, and eating

  • Full arch dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. You can feel confident when eating or interacting with other people.

Eat the foods you enjoy

  • Full arch dental implants perform just like real teeth, allowing you to go back to enjoying the foods that you use to eat.

Maintain a more youthful appearance

  • When teeth are lost and not replaced, the bone that was supporting the teeth begins to naturally break down. This is called atrophy. Over time atrophy of the jaws reduces support for the cheeks and lips resulting in an older appearance.
  • Dental implants transmit chewing forces directly to the jaw bone. This helps stimulate bone growth and avoids atrophy.

Diagnosis and decision making

Replacing a full arch of teeth requires precise planning and implementation. Your dentist and our surgeons will work closely together to come up with the best solution to replace your missing teeth.

At your consultation you should expect to discuss your medical history, any medications you take, and undergo a brief health review. Your surgeon will perform a physical exam. Our advanced 3D imaging technology allows your surgeon to assess your available bone and precisely plan the position of your implants.

Surgery

Each surgery takes place in a private surgical suite at one of our four locations. This comfortable, personalized setting allows for safe and efficient treatment. All surgery is performed under appropriate anesthesia to maximize your comfort. Please see our anesthesia options.

Temporary prosthesis

After surgery a temporary full arch dental bridge will be custom made and attached to your new dental implants. Your new teeth will provide a stable framework to allow for even distribution of your chewing forces and help strengthen your new implants. After 4-6 months your surgeon will check the progress of your healing to ensure that you are ready for your permanent teeth. During this time, you will need to limit your diet to softer foods.

Permanent prosthesis

Once your dental implants have fully healed your dentist will make and attach a permanent dental bridge that will look and function just like your natural teeth.

Maintenance

It is very important to take care of your new teeth. Brush and floss around your prosthesis twice daily just like your natural teeth. We recommend that you see your dentist every 3-6 months for examination and professional cleaning.
