Types of full arch dental implants
A popular alternative to traditional removable dentures, this technique fixes dentures securely in place with implants. Usually, the dentures are placed in the lower jaw to provide strength and support, but can be placed in the upper jaw, too. This is a cost-effective way of replacing a full arch of teeth.
Six to eight implants are used to restore the lower, upper, or both jaws. After your mouth heals from implant surgery, a porcelain or acrylic denture is then screwed in place. Acrylic teeth are cheaper than porcelain, yet still look very natural.
These implants replace a full arch of teeth on the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both jaws. Four to six implants are placed in the jawbone and are left to integrate with the bone. It takes roughly six months for the implants to integrate, during which your permanent bridges will be crafted.
- Implant-retained dentures.
- Porcelain or acrylic fixed bridge on implants.
- All-on-4 or All-on-6
Your treatment will carefully planned by our dentist to provide you with the best results possible. You will firstly have a full dental examination, X-rays, and 3D imaging, all to help accurately develop your personalised treatment plan. Your implants will be placed while you’re under local anaesthetic and possible sedation, ensuring a comfortable procedure. Once your implants are fitted in your jawbone, you will receive temporary dentures to wear home on the same day. A recovery time of roughly four to six months must elapse before you receive your permanent dentures.
