As the next best thing to natural teeth, dental implants have become the top option for replacing missing or failing teeth. Dental implants can dramatically restore the quality of your life. So choosing to have dental implants placed is no minor decision, especially if you’re getting full mouth dental implants instead of replacing a single tooth or just a few teeth. Take a look at what getting full mouth dental implants entails and learn more about how they can improve your life.
To get the full picture of how full mouth dental implants work, it’s helpful to start with a look at how dental implants themselves work. Dental implants are part of what people consider full mouth dental implants.
Here’s a look at the major parts of dental implants:
. The Implant Screw
This component is inserted in the jawbone, just like natural teeth. It’s made of biocompatible material, often titanium, so that the implant fuses with the bone over time.
. The Abutment
This connector attaches to the top of the implant screw and anchors the dental restoration
. The Restorations
These are your replacement teeth, which are anchored to implant screw via the abutment. Restoration can be dental crowns, bridge or specialized dentures.
Dental implants can place a single tooth, with a dental crown attached to a single implant. But a series of implants can be used to support a full row of teeth. Instead of requiring a dental implant per replacement tooth, full mouth dental implants leverage four to eight dental implants per row of replacement teeth.
Here’s a look at the major styles of restorations used for full mouth dental implants:
. Implant-Supported Dentures
Regular dentures are loose fitting and very awkward to deal with. Specialized dentures snap onto dental implants, providing more support than conventional dentures at an affordable price. However, they are looser fitting than fully affixed options and require more frequent maintenance.
. All On 4
Compared to before, this technique also uses four dental implants that are placed into your gums. However, a full arch of (typically) porcelain teeth are tightly fitted to your gum line. This means that they are permanently affixed to your jaw, meaning that these act more like natural teeth in function and aesthetic! (2)
. Zirconia Full Arch
Zirconia (Zirconium Dioxide) is a new development of dental and medical materials, being a very durable and bio-compatible metal like titanium, but with coloring indistinguishable from a porcelain ceramic (3). This makes zirconium a longer lasting arch material with all the added benefits of a natural looking smile!
Benefits of Full Mouth Dental Implants
There are several benefits that full mouth dental implants can offer to patients. Some include:
. Fewer dental implants required
. Replacing all of the teeth at once
. Improved bone quality
. Support of a permanent prosthetic appliance
. Make use of the better bone available
