Living without a complete arch of teeth negatively affects people’s quality of life. When people have a full arch of missing teeth, the tooth roots are not stimulating the jawbone. Without stimulation, the jawbone will lose density and volume. For those who have jawbone density loss, they should receive SmartFix® full mouth dental implants in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

What Happens During The SmartFix Procedure Process?
The procedure process for SmartFix in Bloomfield Hills, MI relies on four to six dental implants to secure a full arch prosthesis to the patients upper or lower jawbone. Because the dental implant posts are strategically placed at an angle in the patient’s jawbone, they can restore their natural biting and chewing capabilities. Even those who have lost jawbone density can receive SmartFix thanks to their long, angled dental implants
The following gives a step-by-step explanation of the procedure process for SmartFix:
Step 1: The Consultation For SmartFix
Every SmartFix procedure journey begins with a consultation. During the patient’s consultation for SmartFix with the trusted and skilled periodontist, the periodontist will review the patient’s dental history, take diagnostic images of their mouth, and discuss their dental goals. In addition, the periodontist will create a customized SmartFix procedure for the patient to fit their specific smile.
Step 2: Placement Of The SmartFix Full Mouth Dental Implants
On the day of patients SmartFix® full arch dental implant placement surgery, they will arrive at their periodontist’s practice and be given appropriate sedation dentistry. During the SmartFix surgery, the periodontist will use a special surgical guide to ensure that all of the dental implants are placed in the patient’s jaw where they have enough bone density and volume to support it. This allows the dental implants to more predictably fuse with the rest of the patients jawbone over the coming months.
Thanks to advanced technology, the SmartFix full mouth dental implant placement surgery is minimally invasive, precise, and predictable.
Step 3: Placing The Temporary Prosthesis
A significant advantage recieving SmartFix full arch dental implants is that they are a same-day full arch tooth replacement option. After accurately and securely placing the four to six dental implants needed for this advanced procedure, the periodontist will use them as anchors for a temporary prosthesis. With a temporary full arch prosthesis, patients get functional, life-like teeth and never have to be without a beautiful smile again.
Step 4: Attaching The Final Prosthesis
In a few months’ time, the SmartFix full mouth dental implants will become a part of the patient’s jawbone. At this point, the patient can have their temporary prosthesis removed and get it replaced with a personalized final prosthesis. With SmartFix full mouth dental implants, patients get the beautiful, functional, and healthy new smile they need and deserve.
