For years, dentures have been the only options for patients suffering from multiple missing teeth. With the advancement in research and procedures such as a full arch treatment, these patients have a durable, reliable option to revamp their smile.
A full arch replacement can be achieved with a minimum of four dental implants, which are used to support your custom appliance. All implants are placed at the same time during surgery, reducing the need for multiple procedures. While traditional methods, like dentures, can be movable and must use glue to stay in place, a full arch treatment allows for a permanent replacement of an entire arch of teeth at once. Full arch treatments do require regular maintenance and cleanings, just as any other dental procedures and your periodontist will continue to follow-up after completion of your treatment to ensure success.
Other benefits of the full arch treatment include the prevention of further deterioration, bone preservation, and improved smile confidence with a secure bite. For more information on our services or to request an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (401) 521-5312.
