Full mouth dental implants are a great way to revive your smile. When you have lost most or all of your teeth, you’ll need a complete set of artificial teeth to exchange. Good quality replacements stay in situ when an individual chews or talks. They should fit as close as possible to be able to function like natural teeth. Let us understand Full Mouth Dental Implants in depth.
Believe it or not, tooth loss is common in today’s time. If you want to revive your smile a Full Mouth Implant Treatment is the best and latest method to restore all teeth at once. It is one of the most intrinsic dental treatments practised.
Full Mouth Dental Implants
Full mouth dental implants are needed when a person suffers from gum diseases or extensive tooth decay. It is likely to have loose and missing teeth in the above scenarios. They are either a set of multiple dental implants embedded into the jawbone or two sets of external teeth sustained by an implant.
Two types of dental implants are:
Implant-supported by dental bridges
Implant-supported by dentures.
How do dental implants work?
To understand how full mouth implants work. Let us get an insight into different parts of a dental implant. An implant has three parts
1. The Implant Screw
2. The Abutment
3. The Restoration
The Implant Screw
This part of the implant is inserted inside the jawbone in a way that it imitates natural teeth. The implants are usually made from a biocompatible material like titanium. Titanium implants fuse with the bone over time.
The abutment is a connector that attaches to the top of the implant screw and anchors the dental restoration.
Restorations are nothing but replacement teeth that fixes on the implant screw along with the abutment. Restoration can be in the form of dental crowns, bridges or specialized dentures.
There are various ways in which the above implant components can be arranged to provide a full-mouth implant restoration. They are:
- All on 4/5/6/7/8
- Zirconia Full Arch
- Implant-Supported Dentures
Dentures are usually loose fitting and very awkward to deal with. Implant-Supported Dentures are specialized dentures that attach to dental implants. They provide a good fit that’s better than conventional dentures. However, they are not as snug as fully affixed options and require more maintenance.
All On 4/5/6/7/8
Can 4 implant screws replace all of the teeth?
The answer is yes! Thanks to advanced dental implant technology.
These kinds of implants are fully attached to your gums with the help of 4 or 5 or 6 or 8 screws. However, these are not as good a fit as full-arch. There might be some gaps that make it difficult for you to maintain. More than 4 screws are also not preferred because it affects gum health. It is also not suitable for some as they might not have enough bone density to take more than 4 screws.
Zirconia Full Arch
Zirconia (Zirconium Dioxide) is a very durable and bio-compatible material. It yields a natural finish and gives a very snug fit. The implant screw, in this case, fuses with the bone over time. The full-mouth prosthesis looks and feels just like your original teeth.
Benefits of Full Mouth Dental Implants
The perks of getting full mouth dental implants are plenty. If you are someone who is missing teeth or has loose teeth, full mouth dental implants are the best choice. Some of the benefits are:
Are there any risks involved?
Besides the benefits, not everyone with missing teeth can opt for a full mouth dental implant. It is only safe for someone with enough jaw bone density to undergo the procedure.
Dentists make sure they have a sterile environment during all procedures to ensure there are no chances of infection. The same care and dental implant hygiene need to be taken after the procedure.
One must abide and strictly follow the prescription given by the dentist and go for follow-ups as instructed by the dentists.
