How multiple dental implants can serve as full tooth replacement in the smile

Unlike other tooth replacement options, such as bridges and partials, multiple dental implants may be needed to restore several missing teeth. This option offers unmatched stability and functionality. Drs. Joseph and Julie Boulos use advanced techniques of CBCT imaging to securely anchor the implant to your jawbone, ensuring a solid foundation for your new tooth.

What are full-mouth dental implants?

Full-mouth dental implants, more commonly known as complete teeth replacement or implant-retained dentures, allow patients to replace all the teeth in the upper and lower arch. This implant restoration method gives patients a complete set of new, natural-looking, functioning teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, full-mouth dental implants are anchored securely to the jawbone using multiple implants, providing unmatched stability and functionality. This is especially advantageous for those who have lost all or most of their teeth due to decay, gum disease, or injury.

How do full-mouth dental implants work?

Multiple tooth replacements with dental implants and dentures work by first placing dental implants into the jawbone. These specific implants act as artificial tooth roots and are made of titanium, a strong and biocompatible material that fuses with the surrounding bone tissue through a process called osseointegration. Once the implants have fully integrated, they serve as the sturdy foundation for attaching customized dentures. Depending on your specific needs, the number of dental implants placed may vary, but four to six implants are typically needed for a full mouth restoration.
