Full-arch restoration uses as few as 4 dental implant posts to secure a full and natural-looking set of teeth in the upper or lower arch. Also known as All-on-4® or Teeth in an Hour, full-arch restoration is a popular choice for many patients experiencing severe tooth loss. Greater Montana Oral & Dental Implant Surgery offers full-arch implants.
Many patients opt for a full-arch restoration because they are comfortable, permanent, and natural-looking. For patients with severe tooth loss and decay, a full-arch restoration procedure replaces a full upper or lower arch of teeth using as few as 4 dental implants. These implant posts are carefully placed into the jaw bone to create the most secure foundation for the prosthesis.
A full-arch restoration can restore a smile in just one procedure. A fixed prosthesis is placed into the upper or lower arch and secured with dental implant posts. The results are natural-looking, comfortable, and permanent.
A full-arch restoration procedure starts much like a single dental implant placement procedure. Your oral surgeon will begin the procedure by administering the anesthesia that was discussed and selected during your consultation appointment. Once you are completely at ease, your oral surgeon will place the dental implants into the jaw. The next several weeks following the procedure will allow the implants to fuse with the jaw bone. This process, called osseointegration, is what makes the prosthesis secure in the mouth. A temporary set of teeth may be placed while your implants heal.
Patients who are looking to restore an entire upper or lower arch of teeth should discuss full-arch restoration with their oral surgeon.
Greater Montana Oral & Dental Implant Surgery will go the extra mile to ensure their patients are comfortable, safe, and informed throughout their treatment. Your customized treatment plan, including your options and selection of anesthesia, will be discussed during your consultation appointment. Dr. Jerman and the rest of the Greater Montana Oral & Dental Implant Surgery staff are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
