How Do I Know If I Need a Full Arch Replaced?
Sometimes Full Arch Implant Restorations are needed when all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution.
“Before dental implants, there were no fixed solution available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high esthetic solution…”
Benefits of a “Fixed Bridge” on Implants:
- Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth
- A solid, stable solution that will serve you for life
- Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss
The Full Arch Implant Treatment Prodedure
The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. But all in all, 8-10 visits should be enough to have a fixed bridge installed. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.
Option 1 – Fixed Porcelain Bridge Dental Restoration
A Fixed Porcelain Bridge implant procedure requires the placement of 6 to 8 dental implants. One of the major reasons a porcelain bridge is a popular treatment option, is because it’s the closest one can get to having “the feel of natural teeth…” Why Porcelain Bridge for Your Dental Restoration? A porcelain bridge allows for the replacement of a whole arch with teeth that somewhat feel individual although they are joined. Before the advent of implants, missing teeth were replaced with bridges that linked natural teeth. A similar principle is followed in the design of an Implant supported fixed porcelain bridge. With fixed dental bridges, you can eat and function like having natural teeth. This is a solid, stable solution that will serve to preserve your facial appearance and smile. The cost of a fixed porcelain bridge is approximately $30,000.00 for a full arch. This involves the placement of 6-8 implants and the fabrication of a porcelain bridge.
