Benefits of Full-Arch Dental Implants

Posted on 2/6/2023 by Nancy Shiba DDS
Benefits of Full-Arch Dental ImplantsIndividuals who have badly damaged or missing teeth anticipate new smiles and explore various tooth replacement strategies to achieve this. This entails visiting an experienced and skilled dentist who will do an oral examination and may make a recommendation for dental implants to be fixed to aid in restoring the long-desired smile.

Dental implants can be used to replace a missing tooth or more teeth due to their super versatile nature. In a case where several teeth are missing or got damaged, a full-arch dental implant may come in handy in achieving a great smile.  

All About Full-Arch Dental Implants

A dental implant normally has a titanium or zirconia post that is loaded into the jawbone to function as a tooth root. Fitting dental implants requires the hand of a skilled dentist and entails a two-step process after tooth extraction.

The initial step is inserting the dental implant, which is then left for approximately 3 to 4 months to allow for growth of the jawbone over it. During this period, the patient can use temporary tooth replacement options. The final step is anchoring permanent teeth onto the implant once it has properly integrated into the jawbone.

Benefits of Full-Arch Implants

Dental implants aid with teeth replacements. A full-arch dental implant treatment has several benefits. It helps restore one's smile, improves appearance, and restores oral health. Dental implants conserve the jawbone and prevent teeth adjacent to the lost tooth from shifting.

Another benefit is that full-arch implants prove more comfortable compared to dentures. They help retain the facial structure and give a natural look. Having a full-arch dental implant fixed is associated with a longer life span and is a great choice for teeth replacements. Since full-arch implants have screws placed at an angle to the jawbone, they are stable and can work in individuals with reduced bone volume.

If you are seeking to replace lost teeth, kindly contact our clinic to book an appointment today. Our dental team has the experience and hands-on training to fit full-arch implants and other dental implants.
