Whats involved in a full arch treatment ?
Implants can be used to replace a full set of missing teeth. This can allow you to have teeth permanently fixed in your mouth, and the ability to eat everything you used to with normal teeth.
You don’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 will need a more delayed approach.
We undertake planning to make sure you end up with the most predictable and stable long term result.
Some patient 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.
Whats 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 implants and what options are available to your individual circumstances.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
