dentures

Temporary solutions, like dentures, are often the go-to option for edentulous individuals.

Dentures are temporary prosthetics placed directly onto the dental arch and held in place by a removable adhesive. They aesthetically restore your smile and provide the function of teeth in chewing and speaking. The most prevalent complaints among dentures wearers are the uncomfortable fit and movement during use. Despite modeling and fitting dentures with imaging and molds, the prosthetic cannot fit perfectly enough to feel natural. Especially over time as gradual bone loss begins to change the overall structure of your face. This bone loss is the result of missing tooth roots that would naturally provide support and stability to the jaw bones. Dentures do not address this important side effect of missing teeth. Over time bone loss will lead to premature aging and a “sunken in” look to the face. The temporary adhesive used to keep the dentures in place can fail during wear, causing dentures to shift or detach completely. This movement can make speaking and eating difficult for denture wearers. As a result, the struggles of temporary solutions lead many to seek out a permanent solution instead. Full mouth dental implants aesthetically restore your smile, function just like natural teeth, and provide the bone support you need to prevent future bone loss.

The Difference of Full Mouth Dental Implants

Full mouth dental implants permanently rejuvenate your smile without the struggles associated with temporary solutions like dentures. Whole mouth dental implants are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth, requiring the same level of care. Regular brushing and flossing are all you need to properly care for your implants. Dental implants are made up of three components: post, abutment, and restoration. The post is inserted directly into the jawbone to stabilize the implant and support the surrounding bone. The abutment is placed onto the post and extends beyond the gumline, acting as a connector between the post and restoration. Your restoration is the visible portion of your implant and is designed to look like a natural tooth. Factors like skin tone and facial structure are considered when designing your restoration to ensure the most natural look.

Compared to temporary solutions like dentures, full mouth dental implants require a greater investment. Why then do patients choose to invest in this treatment? The health benefits of full mouth dental implants are the main reason why patients invest in the cost of full mouth dental implants. Full mouth dental implants function like natural teeth, providing support and stabilization to facial bones preventing gradual bone loss. Any adjacent teeth are kept stable and no longer in danger of shifting. Before implants are placed, it is vital to address oral health concerns like gum disease and tooth decay. By addressing ailment before the placement of your implants, you begin your smile restoration journey with a strong foundation to ensure you minimize any chances of reoccurrence in the future. Full mouth dental implants will help support your positive oral health by returning the function of natural teeth.

What Is An All-On-X & How Can It Help You?

Consultation: During your consultation with Dr. Emma Wu, she will conduct a thorough examination and take 3D imaging of your mouth to begin your customized treatment plan. Dr. Wu may recommend treatments to address underlying concerns like gum disease and bone density to ensure the success of your surgery.

Surgery: On the day of your surgery, we will use sedation to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed during the procedure. Dr. Emma Wu is an expert in the All-On-Four protocol, a full arch dental implants procedure that offers a less invasive and cost effect approach to full mouth restoration. Dr. Wu will strategically place four to six implants into the jawbone and snap in a temporary restoration to restore full function while you heal. 

Healing: Healing typically occurs over three to six months, allowing your implants to fuse fully to the surrounding bone. 

Final Appointment: Once healing is complete, Dr. Wu will remove your temporary restoration and place your permanent restoration. Your permanent restoration is designed in on-site dental laboratory to fully restore the look and function of your natural teeth. Your implant journey is now complete, with proper care you can expect your full arch dental implants to last 30 years or more!

Frequently Asked Questions About Full Mouth Dental Implants

Unfortunately there is not an easy ballpark estimate for full mouth dental implants. Everyone’s mouth is unique and so is their treatment plan & timeline. The best way to get pricing for full mouth dental implants is to schedule a consultation with a trusted dentist. After they take initial measurements and scans they can provide more information about pricing and timeline.

Traditional dentures are designed to just replace the crowns of your teeth (the part of your teeth that exist outside the gums). Full mouth dental implants replace the entire structure of your natural teeth. They look and feel more natural than traditional dentures. Because they replace the roots of the teeth they also preserve the shape of your face. Full mouth implants also don’t shift around or fall out. Many patients are often frustrated or even embarrassed by how traditional dentures impact how they eat, talk, and go about their day to day life. Implant-supported dentures solve this problem.

That depends on your insurance. Insurance coverage varies from provider to provider and from plan to plan. For example, some insurance plans provide coverage for dental implants with copays or deductibles while others do not provide coverage for dental implants at all but instead cover alternative treatments like dental bridges (for single lost teeth) or traditional dentures. 

The entire process from start to finish can take four to six months but that timeline can vary greatly if you need additional dental work done first. All-On-4 dental implants require multiple appointments. The largest chunk of time is the process of the implants integrating with your jawbone. While the healing process is relatively quick, it takes time for the implants to bond with the jawbone. For the most accurate timeline you should see a dentist to discuss your specific treatment plan. 

Even though full mouth dental implants aren’t natural teeth they still need to be cared for. Moreover your gum line also needs to be cleaned to prevent periodontal disease. Gum diseases can weaken your jawbone and cause implant failure. Make sure to follow your dentist’s instructions on daily cleaning. 

While you will need to change your diet for the recovery period, one of the key benefits of full mouth dental implants is that you can return to your normal diet, Full mouth dental implants are designed to replace natural teeth and to act similarly to healthy adult teeth. 

Yes, this is a common misconception. Sometimes a patient cannot get a singular implant because their jawbone wouldn’t be able to support the implant post  at that location. However, you might still be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. Because All-On-4 only use four implant posts for the entire arch of teeth, their positioning can be optimized to where your bone structure is strongest. 

Insurance doesn’t always provide the coverage you need to pay for dental implants. All-On-4 dental implants are a serious investment. They can last for over 30 years and are designed to be  the best replacement solution for your full smile. That is why many practices provide financing and payment plans for this treatment.
