What Are Full Mouth Dental Implants?

Full mouth dental implants involve replacing all missing teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw with a series of implants. This method, often known as All-on-4® or All-on-X, uses four strategically placed implants to support a full set of new teeth, providing a permanent and stable solution for significant tooth loss.

Why Choose Full Mouth Dental Implants?

  • Restore Functionality: Eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Implants look and feel like natural teeth.
  • Bone Preservation: Prevents further bone loss and maintains facial structure.
  • Durability: With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.

Types of Full Mouth Dental Implants

  1. All-on-4® or All-on-X Implants: Uses four or more implants per arch.
  2. Zygomatic Implants: For patients with significant bone loss in the upper jaw, these implants are anchored into the cheekbones.
  3. Implant-Supported Bridges and Dentures: Alternative options for those who may not qualify for full arch implants.

The Procedure

  1. Consultation and Planning: A thorough examination with advanced imaging to plan implant placement.
  2. Implant Surgery: Implants are placed in the jawbone, followed by a healing period where the bone integrates with the implants.
  3. Permanent Teeth Placement: Custom-made teeth are securely attached to the implants.
  4. Aftercare and Maintenance: Regular check-ups and good oral hygiene ensure the longevity of your implants.
