If you’ve lost all of your teeth, full arch implant-supported bridges can offer a great alternative to other tooth replacement procedures.
Full arch implants are designed to be long-lasting as well as functional—just like your natural teeth. Because they’re made to last, implants can be a better option for you in the long run than other forms of tooth replacement because upkeep and maintenance are similar to that of natural teeth.
What Are the Advantages to a Full Arch Implant?
When it comes to tooth replacement there’s no such thing as one size fits all. Your full arch implants will be custom fit to your mouth, so there’s little to no discomfort surrounding your new teeth.
This customization enables your teeth to look and function much like natural teeth—meaning you don’t have to take as much time getting used to them as you would dentures.
While dentures can fall out while eating certain foods, implants are integrated into the bone structure itself, so they are able to function more like natural teeth. This enables you to eat a much wider range of foods without fear of any awkward mishaps.
Why Replace the Tooth Roots?
Each implant replaces part of the root of the tooth, which gives it a much more natural relationship with the jawbone. The titanium in the implant will fuse to the jawbone by a process called osseointegration. This stimulates and strengthens the jawbone to promote long-term dental health.
Traditional dentures neglect the jawbone entirely. This can cause the bone to deteriorate, causing further issues with your jaw. Implants, on the other hand, replace the root to provide you with a stronger, healthier jawbone.
How Will My Full Arch Implant Look?
Full arch implants provide a more comfortable feel to your mouth and jaw. This means you can go about your day as usual without needing to upkeep or maintain your teeth as you would with traditional dentures.
Your new teeth will look and function like your natural teeth. Most people won’t even be able to tell whether or not your teeth are new or natural. This also makes your transition into full arch implants more natural, taking less time than dentures would have.
