Full Arch Dental Implants An Overview
A removable denture has been the traditional tooth replacement option for edentulous patients, or those missing a full arch of teeth. Although dentures have benefited from advances made in both materials, adhesives and treatment planning technique, many patients will experience problems with comfort, fit and function over time. Fortunately, dental implants can offer a solution for these concerns, providing the ability to permanently secure a cosmetic denture for natural function and comfort.
Northern Virginia implant dentist Dr. Datta Malyavantham offers comprehensive care for tooth replacement and a full range of dental implant services for replacing a full arch or full mouth of missing teeth. An active member of professional organizations for implant dentistry, he works with patients on an individual basis to help them achieve a new smile that is healthy, comfortable and stable, allowing them to enjoy lasting oral health and the best possible quality of life. Dr. Datta performs all phases of the implant procedure in our dental office, making it more convenient for patients and providing a consistency of care that can lay the foundation for an optimal outcome.
Dental implants enable Dr. Datta to provide a permanent, secure new smile that can last a lifetime and support your overall dental health. Key benefits for patients when using dental implants to secure a denture include:
- Reduced bone loss in the jaw: dental implants also replace the lost tooth root, stabilizing bone in the jaw and minimizing changes in the shape of the jaw and fit of the bite that can occur over time after tooth loss.
- Minimized irritation of the gums and soft tissues: a secure and stable implant supported denture will not rub against the gums, a common cause of discomfort and increased risk of periodontal disease with removable dentures.
- No dietary restrictions: a permanent solution for missing teeth, implant dentures allow patients to enjoy the foods they enjoy and chew naturally, with comfort and confidence.
- Normal speech: patients using implant supported dentures enjoy a 95% success rate, partly due to the ability to speak more clearly and with confidence.
Implant secured dentures enable patients to enjoy greater overall oral comfort and the taste and texture of foods. This is often impacted by an upper denture that covers a large portion of the palate. An implant denture will fit and feel much like your natural smile, secured permanently in place by several implants.
