With all the advancements in dental implant technology, patients with severe tooth loss now have more options available to them than just traditional dentures. At our office in Bellaire, TX, we offer full-arch restoration, also known as the All-on-4® treatment concept or Teeth-in-a-Day. The full-arch restoration procedure relies on a base of dental implants to support a permanent denture, which replaces your entire arch of teeth all in one procedure.
What is full-arch restoration?
Full-arch restoration is the most effective and efficient solution for restoring an entire arch of teeth. In the past, patients with many teeth missing had limited options for tooth replacement. Replacing a full arch of teeth typically meant patients had to choose traditional removable dentures, or undergo many separate dental implant treatments. Nowadays, patients can undergo full-arch restoration, which involves only one procedure. Your oral surgeon will place as little as four dental implants in the jaw, which then act as the foundation to support a permanent denture. This denture is custom-designed to look like your natural teeth, and once it is affixed to the implants, it functions just like them too.
Benefits of Full-Arch Restoration
Full-arch restoration is not only the most effective option for multiple tooth replacement but also the most beneficial. Patients receive all the same benefits as with dental implants, but in a more efficient procedure for replacing many teeth at once. Traditional dentures, in contrast, require special glue, which doesn’t always keep the dentures from slipping around or falling out. The most common benefits associated with full-arch restoration include
- Restores smile and boosts confidence
- No risk of slipping or falling out
- Prevents jaw bone deterioration
- Prevents dental and facial shifting
- Custom-designed to look like your natural teeth
- Requires only a single procedure
