One of the beauties of dental implants is their versatility. They can be used to replace single missing teeth, multiple missing teeth, or all of your teeth if they have to be removed due to decay or periodontal disease. Full-mouth dental implants will give you back the function and beauty of your teeth so you can smile with confidence again. Working with an experienced implant dentist like Dr. Tom Alexander from Sterling Plaza Dentistry / Tom Alexander, DDS in Irvine, California, will increase your chances of having a positive, successful implant treatment.
The impact of losing all your teeth can be devastating. Your oral health, general health, lifestyle, and quality of life will certainly be affected. That’s where full-mouth dental implants can play their part. Full mouth implants are a permanent tooth replacement treatment that naturally restores your smile’s health, function, and appearance.
Full mouth implant treatment entails placing titanium implant posts into strategic locations in your jaw to support your replacement teeth. Depending on your situation, your Irvine dentist may recommend all-on-4, all-on-6, or all-on-8 implant treatment. These implants will become the foundation for a full set of custom-fitted dentures to replace the missing teeth. Unlike traditional dentures that merely sit on your gums, implant-supported dentures are anchored by implants that have been surgically placed into your jaw which then fuse with the bone. This gives your prosthetics or denture the security and stability of natural teeth.
Dr. Alexander can customize a set of natural-looking dentures using advanced dental technology to restore your smile’s unique beauty. By the end of your treatment, you’ll have healthy, functional, natural-looking teeth you can show off proudly.
As implants require surgery, you must have decay, infection, or gum disease in check to qualify for this treatment. You’ll also need to be in good general health, free of medical issues that may interfere with your surgery or healing. Implant candidates also need to have enough bone to support the implant. If the surgical implant site is lacking, bone grafting may be needed to shore up jawbone density before your surgical placement. Dr. Alexander will evaluate your oral health and review your medical history to determine if implants are a good treatment option for you.
Implant treatment is a process that takes 4-6 months to complete. As a result, you can enjoy all the benefits of a natural smile again! With full mouth implants, you can look forward to:
