Full Mouth Implant Bridge - If you are missing all of 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.
An entire mouth can be rebuilt using dental implants to support replacement teeth.
The most natural results are achieved when a beautiful porcelain crown and bridge
treatment is used in conjunction with precise implant placement. Usually, 6-8
implants on the upper and lower implants are used to support an entire set of
porcelain teeth. The teeth are cemented or screwed in and they look and feel just
like real teeth. To many, it is a life changing experience.
Complete dentures are difficult to wear. Implants can be used underneath removable
dentures to eliminate many of the problems associated with denture wear. In the
upper denture, most people complain about having the palate of their mouth covered,
thus, decreasing the ability to feel and taste food. Four implants under the upper
denture hold it securely so that the size of the place can be reduced, removing the
palate form the denture altogether.
The lower denture is more difficult to wear than the upper (there is no suction to
hold it in place). It constantly moves, presses on the gums, and has to be held in
by the cheeks and tongue. Just two (preferably 4) implants under a lower denture
improve it so much that it makes for some of happiest patients.
The improved ability to chew is one of the biggest benefits patients report. Since
the dentures anchor on the implants instead of resting on the gums, they allow patients
to bite much harder with no discomfort. Another benefit – no messy adhesives!
