Full mouth dental implants are ideal if you’re missing most or all of your teeth. They can also help if your existing teeth are badly damaged. It’s an extensive treatment plan, but if you decide it’s the right plan for you, the decision may dramatically improve your quality of life. Full dental implants restore your appearance and full dental function.
Your dentist may recommend full mouth dental implants instead of dentures because they make sense for your situation. And since your family dentist at CitiDental has the training and experience to perform a full dental implant procedure, you won’t have to look for another dentist to do the work.
Full mouth dental implants replace all the teeth in either the top of your mouth, the bottom or both halves. It’s usually a better solution than dentures, because implants preserve your jaw bone. The titanium screws used for implants fuse to the bone and encourage bone growth. Your Queens dentist also practices cosmetic dentistry and knows that full dental implants look and feel more natural as well.
Several dental visits are required to complete all the steps of the procedure. Typically, full mouth dental implants involve a number of key visits that include:
Intermediate steps may be taken, such as fitting you with a temporary denture while you wait for the healing to finish and for your new custom-made teeth to be made. A full mouth dental implant is designed specifically to the shape of your jaw and mouth. Your dentist sees to it that your new teeth function as naturally as possible and are completely comfortable so you don’t even notice.
You may need more sedation than other people do, especially when your teeth are pulled. CitiDental offers the latest in sedation dentistry for just such occasions. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, “Every case is different, and some of these steps can be combined when conditions permit. Your dental professional works with you to determine the best treatment plan.”
For many people, full dental Implants are a much better option than bridges or dentures. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) reports that: “Dental implants are increasingly becoming a popular alternative to dentures and bridges.”
The AAID points to some of the superior benefits of full mouth dental implants, such as:
After getting a complete smile makeover, you should quickly adjust to your new teeth. Smiling, speaking clearly, chewing and biting once again come naturally with little thought or effort. And care for full dental implants is the same as you’ve been doing for years when you had your natural teeth.
Brush regularly, floss daily and keep a healthy diet to ensure the health of your implants. Full dental implants are made out of resin or ceramic compounds, instead of enamel, so they’re more durable than your natural teeth. Remember that your gums need TLC since they’re still susceptible to bacteria. You’ll want to build in additional visits to your dentist after first getting dental implants to make sure your transition, and your new teeth, are serving you well.
Costs vary greatly, depending on a number of factors, and your dental team goes over the payment options with you before the procedure begins. A full dental implant treatment is a fairly extensive process. Getting full dental implants requires multiple steps such as:
Your dentist is dedicated to providing you with teeth replacement options that suit you best, so you may be offered several different payment options that may be necessary to cover what your insurance doesn’t. CitiDental is committed to offering your family affordable dentistry for the highest quality in dental care you can find in Queens.
