Dental Implants Can Replace a Full Arch of Teeth
For those who have lost all their teeth or have failing teeth, there is an option beyond traditional dentures. Full-arch dental implants are an ideal solution to total tooth loss by restoring health, function and aesthetics to your smile once again. We can attach a full-arch prosthesis to quality BioHorizons® dental implants, to completely restore your mouth. For those who already wear removable dentures but are tired of the slipping, lack of bite strength, or gum irritation, we can alter your dentures to attach to dental implants and solve a number of common denture concerns. Dental implants are considered the ideal form of tooth replacement and are easily able to restore entire mouths that are missing teeth.
Full-Arch Dental Implants vs. Implant Supported Dentures
We offer two different forms of full-arch tooth replacement to better suit your needs and budget. Full-arch dental implants involve placing four or more implants into your jaw bone and attaching a prosthetic arch of teeth to these implants. These new teeth are lifelike, strong, and are only able to be removed by your dentist at Clearwater Dental Associates. Full-arch dental implants are the closest option you can get to real, natural teeth. Our second option is implant supported dentures, which involves placing two or more dental implants into your jaw to stabilize a removable denture. We can retrofit your current denture to work with new dental implants for a more affordable solution to replacing your teeth. You can still remove these implant supported dentures yourself for proper cleaning at night.
Advanced Technology for Safe, Predictable, Quality Results
When placing dental implants for your full-arch case, we use the latest in technology to give you the best results. Through the use of a cone beam CT scan (CBCT) we can get a highly detailed view of your jaw. We use this information to create a custom implant guide to precisely match where your dental implants should be placed. We use BioHorizons® brand of dental implants, which are known for their innovation in unique implants to provide superior surgical and aesthetic results. Additionally, we offer advanced sedation options, including IV sedation, for those who are anxious about their treatment. Our doctors have the training and years of experience to successfully give you the complete smile you’ve been missing out on!
