Welcome to the world of Full Arch dental implants, also known as All-on-Four Dental Implants, the revolutionary solution for patients seeking a comprehensive smile restoration! 🦷
Our Full Arch Dental Implants offer a remarkable alternative to traditional tooth replacement methods. This dental implant option involves the complete replacement of either your upper or lower teeth with a carefully crafted arch of prosthetic teeth, securely anchored using just four titanium implants.
We understand the importance of convenience and efficiency in dental treatments. That’s why our Full Arch Dental Implant procedure can be completed in just one day while you are comfortably sedated.
This means you can leave our office with a brand new, fully functional smile in a single visit 🤩
To ensure the success and longevity of your new teeth, the temporary implants will undergo a healing process over the course of three to six months. During this period, your gums and jawbone will bond with the titanium implants, ensuring a strong and stable foundation for your permanent artificial teeth.
Which patient types are best suited for Full Arch Dental Implants?
Before considering dental implants, a comprehensive evaluation of your dental and medical history, along with a thorough examination of your mouth, is essential to determine your candidacy.
Our team will carefully assess your specific situation to ensure that dental implants are the right option for you.
In some cases, it may be necessary to address insufficient bone density in the jaw. If this is the case, we may recommend a bone grafting procedure to create a strong and stable foundation for the implants.
Rest assured, our expert team at Mola Dental will guide you through the process and tailor the treatment plan to meet your individual needs, ensuring the best possible outcome for your dental health!
But, if you fit the following criteria, then Full Arch Dental Implants could be the right decision for you:
- General good health
- Healthy gums
- Sufficient bone size and structure
- Committed to taking care of your teeth.
What’s the process?
So, we’ve talked about what they are; now, let’s run you through what the process looks like.
Evaluation and consultation:
- Determine if you are a suitable candidate for Full Arch Dental Implants, especially if you need complete teeth replacement for the upper and/or lower jaws.
- Discuss the benefits of the system, such as minimal need for bone grafting, cost-effectiveness, and fewer implants required.
Surgical procedure (day of surgery – approximately 6 to 8 hours):
- On the day of surgery, you will undergo the Full Arch Dental Implant procedure, which typically takes around 6 to 8 hours to complete.
- A temporary bridge will be fitted on the same day, providing you with immediate functionality and aesthetics.
Healing and recovery (3-6 months):
- After the surgery, you must allow sufficient time for the gums to heal and settle.
- Usually, it is recommended to wait for 3 to 6 months for the fitting of your permanent bridge.
Post-surgery rest (3-7 days off work):
- Depending on your line of work, taking at least 3 to 7 days off from work following the surgery is advisable.
- Taking a whole week off can promote better healing and recovery.
Diet and eating habits (8-12 weeks):
- For the first 8 to 12 weeks after the surgery, stick to soft foods to avoid putting excessive pressure on the implants and allow proper healing.
- After 12 weeks, you can gradually resume eating and chewing normally.
Oral hygiene and maintenance:
- Daily cleaning and brushing under your bridge are crucial for maintaining oral health and preventing complications.
- Using an interdental toothbrush can help reach tight spaces between the implants and the bridge.
- Regular dental check-ups are necessary (once or twice a year) to ensure the bridge’s cleanliness and overall oral health.
Enjoy your radiant smile:
- Full Arch Dental Implants (All-on-Four) will restore your confidence with a natural and radiant smile.
- Experience the benefits of reduced surgery time, faster healing, and fewer visits compared to traditional dental treatments.
Aftercare of Dental Implants
The aftercare of your dental implants is one of the most essential parts of your treatment. You need to maintain good oral hygiene following your dental implant treatment to ensure your implants remain trouble-free.
If well looked after, with a regular brushing and flossing routine, your new, perfect smile can last for over 15 years! So, attend regular check-ups so that we can make sure your implants stay in excellent condition for as long as possible.
Benefits Of Full Arch Dental Implants
Full Arch Dental Implants offer a multitude of benefits that make them a highly sought-after solution for those in need of full teeth replacement.
One significant advantage is their ability to reduce stress on adjacent teeth, ensuring the neighbouring natural teeth remain unaffected.
By filling the gap left by missing teeth, these implants prevent adjacent teeth from tilting or shifting, maintaining a proper dental alignment.
That’s not all! Full Arch Dental Implants greatly enhance eating comfort, providing you with the ability to enjoy your favourite foods without worry or discomfort.
But our personal favourite aspect of this treatment is its efficiency, as the entire procedure can be completed within a single day, granting our patients the gift of a complete smile restoration and renewed confidence in the blink of an eye.
Enhance your smile and regain your confidence with Mola Dental. See the results for yourself…
