Full Arch Dental Implants
Replace a Full Arch of Missing Teeth
Full arches of healthy, natural teeth are critical to your oral and overall health. When missing teeth compromise the structure and function of the remaining teeth, or you are completely without teeth (edentulous), it becomes increasingly difficult to perform everyday tasks like eating and speaking. If you suffer from multiple or a full arch of missing teeth, you may be a candidate for implant supported dentures. This long-term solution not only improves your smile and self-confidence, but your quality of life as well.
Drs. Mulokozi Lugakingira and Franklin Awah will assess the current condition of your mouth and recommend the best full-arch dental implant option so you can benefit from:
- Natural-looking teeth
- More permanent tooth replacement
- Boost to self-confidence
- Improved jaw bone health
- Strong and durable teeth
- Increased comfort
Comparing Denture Options
Traditional dentures have provided patients with practical and functional benefits for many years. However, many patients are dissatisfied with the lack of support, messy adhesives, and slipping and clicking. Today’s dental implant [link to dental implant page] solutions not only provide a healthier smile, but offer greater support and durability, stimulate the jaw bone, and provide a long-term alternative to traditional dentures.
Implant-Supported Dentures +
A fixed or removable denture option that is supported by two or more dental implants. Once the implants are fused firmly to the jaw bone, a denture is securely attached in place. Implant-supported dentures provide a stable, strong bite and aesthetic improvements for a healthy, beautiful smile.
A fixed denture option that is supported by four to six dental implants. This procedure can typically be completed in one day, allowing for an immediate load of either the existing or a new denture. This same-day solution is more permanent, secure, and provides long-term oral health benefits.
The Advantage of Expertise
Dental implant placement is one of the most common procedures performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. As oral surgeons, Drs. Lugakingira and Awah are specifically trained in the proper diagnosis, treatment, and maintenance of dental implants. In addition, we have in-depth knowledge of the complex bone, muscle, tooth, and nerves of the face. When combined with the advanced technology of the Cone Beam CT scans and guided implant surgery [link to GIS page], the functional and cosmetic results of their implant procedures are predictable, aesthetically pleasing, and long-lasting.
