The Stability of Dental Implants Meets the Convenience of Dentures
Whether you are facing extensive tooth loss or dissatisfied with traditional dentures, full arch dental implants permanently replace missing teeth in a comfortable, secure manner. Full arch dental implants solutions combine the science of implantology with the simplicity and convenience of dentures.
With this modern option, two or more dental implants are placed within the jaw, strategically positioned to support a full arch prosthesis. Full arch dental implants allow you to once again enjoy a confident and comfortable smile, improved oral function and quality of life.
Our Full Arch Dental Implants Process
The full arch dental implants process begins with a personalized consultation and exam. Dr. Lauren Anderson captures diagnostic images with 3D CBCT scans, and provides treatment recommendations based on your anatomical needs. She is specialty trained in placing full arch dental implants, preparing the jaw for implant placement, and offers relaxing sedation options – such as oral sedation dentistry and IV conscious sedation dentistry – for your comfort. Following your procedure, Dr. Anderson refers you back to your general dentist, who attaches your full arch prosthesis when your implants are ready to be restored.
Full Arch Dental Implant Options Meet a Variety of Needs
Dr. Anderson utilizes materials highly regarded for superior quality and design in creating exceptional results with full arch dental implants solutions to replace missing teeth.
The type of full arch dental implant products and systems we use is dependent on your unique tooth replacement needs and goals. Our full mouth dental implants options include:
A revolutionary solution using BioHorizons® full arch dental implants, TeethXpress relies on a series of four to six implants, placed at precise locations within the jaw bone. A new or existing denture is then adapted for a precision fit.
With the same day SmartFix Concept, we purposefully angle and place four to six ASTRA TECH implants within the jaw bone, to which a full arch prosthesis is permanently attached. SmartFix full arch dental implants may be ideal in cases of bone loss, since the unique angulation of implants increases bone-to-implant interface.
Overdentures combine the strategic placement of two or more dental implants with the convenience of full or partial removable dentures. This connection with implants provides heightened stability and denture retention, improving biting force and ability while eliminating denture slippage and other concerns. Conus® attachments provide an option that feels permanent but can be removed for cleaning and maintenance of implants.
Discover the Benefits of Full Arch Dental Implants
The gold standard in tooth replacement, full arch dental implants are an incredibly stable, permanent solution to extensive tooth loss. Full arch dental implants offer incomparable benefits over other options:
- Look, act and feel like real teeth
- Long-term tooth replacement
- Smile, laugh and speak with renewed confidence
- Bite and chew comfortably
- Eat and enjoy favorite foods
- Fuse with jawbone for solid support
- Help preserve jawbone health
- Do not rock, slip or click
THE IMPORTANCE OF TOOTH REPLACEMENT AFTER EXTRACTION
Replacing teeth after tooth extractions is important to your oral health and smile. Prolonged tooth loss leads to bone loss, shifting of surrounding teeth, changes in bite and other problems.
Dental implants often are the ideal option for tooth replacement, as they closely mimic tooth root and crown structures. In some cases, Dr. Anderson performs “immediate implants” whereby the dental implant is placed after tooth extraction in the same visit.
EXTRACTION SITE PRESERVATION FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS
Preserving extraction sites immediately following tooth extractions may be necessary to prepare for future dental implant placement. With a socket preservation procedure, Dr. Anderson adds bone and tissue regenerative factors directly in the tooth sockets (hollowed spaces in bone left by tooth roots). This minimizes the bony arch collapse in these areas, creating a solid foundation and support for your future dental implant.
An Implant Specialist Who Exceeds Industry Standards
Renowned for her meticulous, minimally invasive approach to care, Dr. Anderson incorporates the latest technology into full arch dental implants procedures. She utilizes CBCT 3D imaging and guided implant surgery for precision planning and placement of dental implants within the jaw. As a University of Michigan trained periodontist, Dr. Anderson achieved advanced training in implantology techniques, and uses the most current evidenced-based research to ensure predictable results for your smile.
