Whole Mouth Dental Implants
If you have several missing or failing teeth, you might think implants can’t help. Perhaps the many gaps in your smile have started to wear away at your confidence, or your teeth have started to shift into the empty areas. Maybe you’ve become disenchanted with the idea that your teeth can be fixed at all! After all, what is one new, shiny tooth, if the rest of your smile still needs attention? At Just Smiles General, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry in Hilliard, we have good news: we can replace 4-6 teeth at once with whole mouth dental implants, also known as full-arch dental implants.
Filling out one whole arch of teeth can improve your smile in a few visits. This stands in stark contrast with single implants, which are only surgically installed one at a time and only replace one missing or cracked tooth. With this advanced dental procedure, your jaw will be able to support dentures and other implant-supported restorations with ease, providing you with structure and support. What’s more, you’ll be able to fully enjoy life with the confidence of a consistent smile and the reliability of a strong bite force!
What Are Whole Mouth Dental Implants?
Whole Mouth Dental Implants, also referred to as Full-Arch dental implants, might be different than single implants, but they work in very much the same way. Firstly, our team will install titanium posts in your jaw that can support a set of implant-supported dentures. Once the implants are in place, we will use the structural support they provide to install a full arch of replacement teeth. These sturdy, top-of-the-line restorations offer more structure than traditional dentures. They can restore the vitality of your smile, rejuvenate your facial aesthetics, and give you back your confidence.
The Benefits of Whole Mouth Dental Implants
Single implants are perfect for minor damage. However, a smile sometimes needs more support and structure than one simple replacement tooth can provide. Whole mouth dental implants don’t only replace missing teeth; they provide overall structural support for your jaw, which also prevents damage to other teeth. This means they are both a solution for your current issues, and an investment in your future dental health.
With this combination of whole mouth dental implants and implant-supported dentures, you can:
- Completely restore a full arch of teeth
- Imitate natural teeth perfectly
- Drastically improve chewing ability
- Eliminate the need for messy adhesives
- Greatly boost confidence
- Prevent facial sagging and bone recession
