What Are Full Mouth Dental Implants?
Full mouth dental implants refer to dental treatments that replace all of the upper and/or lower teeth with a full arch of permanent teeth that are supported with dental implants. These treatments have become commonly known as All-On-4, Full Arch Implants, Implant Supported Dentures, Snap-on Dentures and Hybrids.
With all of these treatments, all of the upper or lower replacement teeth are supported by 4, 5, 6 or 8 dental implants. The number of implants you need will depend on your oral health and structure of your mouth.
If you would typically need a full set of removable dentures, you could be an ideal candidate for full mouth fixed implant dentures.
Why Consider Full Mouth Dental Implants?
Full Mouth Dental Implants are a secure, permanent solution to replace bad or missing teeth. They look and feel like natural teeth. They won’t slip or cause gum pain. They will restore your ability to eat whatever you want. And they will allow you smile again with confidence.
And did you know implants will help maintain a more youthful appearance by maintaining your jawbone?
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink and become brittle. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.
Fortunately, dental implants help stop this aging process by mimicking the root of a tooth. Dental implants will continue to stimulate the jawbone and thus prevent continued jawbone recession.

Dental Implant Options
If you have lost a single tooth due to an accident or from periodontal disease, that one tooth can be replaced using a dental implant.
Your new tooth will look and function just like your other natural teeth.
Occasionally a patient is missing more than one tooth, but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth, and multiple implants are the best solution.
Two fixtures are implanted and the crown is attached, leaving other natural teeth intact.
