full arch dental implants Arlington Heights IL
With advances in dental technology, people who suffered from tooth loss or are soon to lose all their teeth in the upper or lower jaw now have an alternative to removable dentures. Our Arlington Heights full tooth replacement provides comfort and stability with a fixed bridge attached to dental implants anchored in the jawbone. Implant supported teeth look and function like natural teeth and provide important dental health benefits for the patient.
The demand for immediate replacement of multiple missing teeth has led to a revolution in how we deal with missing teeth, the full-arch restoration. Also known as “implant supported dentures”, this innovative treatment allows oral surgeon to combine implant technology with dentures to give the patients a new smile and a renewed outlook on life, all in one day!
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are titanium posts designed to mimic the natural roots of your teeth. The implant is surgically embedded in the jaw bone and is used to anchor prosthetic teeth in place. A single dental implant can be used to replace one missing tooth, or several dental implants can be used to mount a set of dentures to restore a full arch of missing teeth. This cutting-edge technology has life-changing benefits for many people. It provides a solution that is comfortable, secure, and reliable, unlike removable dentures.
Dentures and Implants: Working Together as an Option for replacing your lost teeth
Traditional dentures can be inconvenient, painful and unstable. And while dental implants are an excellent choice for single tooth replacements, on the scale of a full arch, they can be expensive and complicated. However, putting these two treatments together yields a solution that works for nearly everyone: implant supported over dentures. During this treatment, four dental implants are placed in the jaw and a full dental bridge attached to them, giving you a full row of teeth in just one appointment
The benefits of dental implants Supported Dentures:
Cost: Because this treatment requires just four implants per arch, it is much more affordable than placing an entire row of implants.
Convenience: Replacement teeth can typically be placed during the same appointment as the implants.
Bone Graft-Free: Two of the four implants are placed at special angles in the back of the jaw to make the best use of available jawbone. This often eliminates the need for bone grafting.
Faster Healing: Less time in the chair and less time healing round out the benefits of full arch restorations.
