Full Mouth Replacement - Cambridge, OH | Marietta, OH
Rebuild a Complete Smile with Dental Implants
Living with complete tooth loss is not a situation you ever expected yourself to be in, but you are among the 35 million Americans who do not have any remaining natural teeth. You have tried traditional dentures, but they did not give you the results you wanted. Although there have been several improvements to their fit and aesthetics, they never truly mimic your real teeth. Now, you can enjoy the next best thing to what nature gave you using dental implants. Dr. Jeff Lee has the long-lasting solutions you need for full mouth replacement.
What Can I Expect from Full Mouth Replacement?
A traditional denture relies on suction or an adhesive to hold the arch to your gum tissue. No matter how well it is crafted, there will always be some limitations to your biting force. Not to mention, slipping and irritation over time are common occurrences.
Dental implants resolve the disadvantages of traditional dentures. A specific number of implant posts are strategically placed into your jawbone to anchor your denture in place. You will feel confident knowing your denture is secure when chewing, speaking, and smiling.
What are the Benefits of Getting a Full Mouth Replacement?
The implant posts also serve as tooth roots. This allows you to enjoy a variety of benefits, including:
Standard implant retained dentures rely on an average of 6 to 10 implant posts to secure the denture to the jawbone. The process takes multiple steps that occur over several months. After the implant posts are placed into your jaw, your bone fuses to them through a process called osseointegration. You are fitted for your denture after you have healed.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-On-4 differs slightly from the traditional method because only 4 implant posts are used, but rest assured you will enjoy the same benefits. Since fewer posts are needed, you can often be fitted for a temporary denture the same day as your placement surgery. You will not need to go without any teeth while you heal.
Am I a Candidate for Full Mouth Replacement?
If you have lost all your teeth or you have a few damaged teeth remaining, you may be a candidate for full mouth replacement. Dr. Lee will perform a comprehensive examination and take a CT scan to assess your oral health. If you have good dental and overall health, you are often a candidate for dental implants. He will create a customized treatment plan to rebuild your smile to improve your quality of life.
