Full Mouth Dental Implants
Full Mouth Dental Implants
Full Mouth Dental Implants Columbus, OH
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium. It is surgically placed in your jawbone and a crown, dental bridge or a denture made of acrylic or ceramic is then attached. If you are missing all your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.

Dental implants provide several benefits and advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like your natural teeth, implant-supported full bridges or dentures are designed to have a longer life expectancy. Implant-supported full bridges and dentures are also more comfortable and stable than traditional dentures, allowing you to restore your natural biting and chewing ability.
In addition, because implant-supported full bridges and dentures will replace some of your tooth roots, your jawbone is better preserved from atrophy. With traditional dentures, the jawbone that previously surrounded the tooth roots begins to deteriorate. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
Dentures and Implants Working Together
Traditional dentures can be inconvenient, unstable, and uncomfortable. Dental implants are an excellent choice for single tooth replacements, but on the scale of a full arch, they can be expensive and complicated. However, putting these two treatments together yields an innovative solution that works for nearly everyone, which are full mouth dental implants. During this treatment, four dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone and a full dental bridge attached to them, giving you a full arch of stabilized teeth, possibly in just one appointment.
The Cost of Your Full Mouth Dental Implants
The cost of your full mouth dental implants will vary depending on your individual needs and your treatment plan. We will discuss with you the cost of your treatment and each of your available payment options before we begin, so that you can make the best choice for your situation.
The Benefits of Full Mouth Dental Implants
Compared with other tooth replacement options, dental implants are the most reliable, longest lasting, and most realistic-looking restoration solution for replacing missing teeth. You will not notice any difference between your natural teeth and the dental implants.
Full mouth dental implants provide excellent chewing power, allowing you to eat a wide variety of foods you enjoy for your proper diet and health. Dental implants do not require adjacent teeth to be modified, as is the case with a dental bridge, and because they fuse with the jawbone, they help prevent jawbone loss that results from missing teeth.
Benefits of full mouth dental implants include:
- The full mouth dental implants will look, act, and feel like your natural teeth. People usually do not notice any difference between their implants and their natural teeth.
- Implants are the strongest and longest-lasting option for tooth replacement.
- Implants do not require alteration to the structure of any adjacent natural teeth, as dental bridges do.
- Implants help preserve the integrity of the jawbone. They prevent the collapsed, wrinkled look of your face caused by the bone loss that occurs from missing teeth and traditional dentures.
How Will the Full Mouth Dental Implants Be Placed?
First, the titanium implants, which look like tiny screws, are surgically placed into your jaw. Then, over the next several months, the implants and the bone will fuse, integrate, or grow together to form anchors for your artificial teeth. During this period, a temporary teeth replacement option can be worn over the implant sites.
Often, a second step of the procedure is necessary to uncover the implants and to attach abutments or extensions. Temporary healing caps, along with the connecting device that allows multiple crowns to attach to the implants, complete the foundation on which your new teeth secured. Your gums will be allowed to heal for a couple of weeks following this procedure.
There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. With both types, the denture will be made of an acrylic base that will look like your gums. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look like natural teeth are attached to this base. Both types of dentures will need at least two implants for support. East Columbus Periodontic and Implant Dentistry will advise you on which system is best for you.
The connecting device on the underside of the dentures that will hold your new teeth can be tightened down and clipped to a bar or a round ball anchor to which your full mouth dental implant dentures will snap on and off. After a short time, you will experience restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak.
