For years dentures have been the go-to solution for people who need to replace a large number of teeth. In more recent years, dental implants have become a popular option for teeth replacement. The latest implant techniques include full-arch dental implants. With this innovative treatment method, your dentist attaches a complete arch of replacement teeth to just a few implants in your upper or lower jaw.
To learn more about the advantages of this approach and see if it will work for you, call us at 602-857-9945 today to schedule a consultation in our Glendale, AZ office.
In the meantime, see some of the biggest benefits of this treatment:
- Less Invasive – Typically your dentist uses either four or six implants to support your new teeth. This is much easier on your jaw than procedures in which many implants are used. Careful placement of implants is the key to this approach, which is why we use 3D imaging and computer-guided technology.
- Quicker Recovery – With fewer implants, you’ll also recover more quickly. You may first receive a temporary arch of teeth to wear while your implants heal. These teeth allow you to smile and eat normally during the healing process. You’ll return to our office in no time for more permanent restorations.
- More Affordable – Using fewer implants also lowers the cost. A full-arch replacement is one of the lowest cost methods to replace many teeth with dental implants.
- Superior Performance – Conventional dentures have a tendency to slip and shift, even if you use adhesive. One of the biggest benefits of implants is how much your new teeth will feel and function like natural teeth. They will stay firmly in place and allow you to eat all kinds of foods without worry, even crunchy apples and corn-on-the-cob. No adhesive needed!
- Prevents Bone Loss – When you lose teeth, you lose their roots. This results in bone loss in your jaw. Over time this gives you a sunken-faced look. Implants stimulate bone growth in your jaw the same way that natural tooth roots do. This keeps your jaw intact. You’ll look younger, and you won’t need periodic relining procedures to adjust the fit of your replacement teeth.
