If you have been dealing with tooth loss, you’ve probably heard about dental implants. They’ve become increasingly popular as a permanent option to bridgework that has superior strength and a beautiful appearance. What you might not realize is that implants aren’t just for people who are missing one or a few teeth. Advances in the use of implants has led to the development of implant supported dentures, providing more patients than ever the options of permanent replacements for a full set of teeth.
Facts About Full Arch Dental Implants
Full arch implants have a few benefits over dentures for patients that qualify. Of course, there are also great reasons for dentures, but for those patients looking for a permanent solution that they can care for like natural teeth, here’s the case for implants:
- Titanium supports ground the implants in the jaw to support the replacement teeth. This makes the implant permanent and strong.
- Replacement teeth are high quality porcelain, leaving the patient with a clear, white smile.
- Full arch implants use a limited arrangement of anchors to provide maximum strength and stability with minimal pain and a fast healing time.
- Implants allow you to resume your regular daily routine without worrying about what you can eat.
