What’s Involved in a Full Arch Treatment?
Full arch dental implants can be used to replace a full set of teeth. This allows you to have teeth permanently fixed in your mouth, and the ability to eat just as you used to using your natural, original teeth.
You won’t need an implant for every tooth either. Most of the time a set of either top or bottom teeth can be done with between 4 and 8 implants, depending on the case and the needs.
Some cases can be immediately restored with a temporary set of teeth, such as in the All-on-4™ concept, while others need a more protracted approach.
We undertake careful planning to make sure you end up with the most predictable and stable long-term result.
Some patients also opt to have a removable set of teeth on a precision milled bar. These act and function like a fixed set of teeth, but can be removed to clean and can be good where the gum appearance or shape is not ideal.
What’s the Next Step?
Every case is different and needs to be assessed carefully and thoroughly. The best start is a consultation to determine if you are suitable for full arch denture implants and what options are available to suit your individual circumstances.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
