Full Upper or Lower Arch Replacement?
Wondering if you should get a full arch replacement? Full arch replacements are available for the upper arch as well as the lower arch. This is really great news for those who are missing multiple teeth and are in need of a tooth replacement option.
Not long ago, when someone was in need of a full arch replacement they would need to wear traditional dentures. Traditional dentures tend to work fine for some. But, many people who wear traditional dentures often complain that they are either uncomfortable or do not stay properly in their place. Now there is a new option for replacing a full upper or full lower arch.
Full upper or lower arch replacement
Now those who are missing multiple teeth on their upper arch or lower arch can benefit from the many dental advances made over the past few years for a better tooth replacement option. Instead of getting traditional dentures, now patients have the choice to get dental implants. At least four dental implants will need to be surgically inserted into a patients jawbone. These will serve as the anchors for the bridges to connect to, keeping the bridges securely in place.
After the dental implant procedure has been performed, the patient must wait until all of the implants are fully healed before any permanent bridges can be placed into their mouth. When dental implant supported bridges are chosen as a tooth replacement option, patients will feel more confident in the way they look. Also, they are able to function better as dental implant supported bridges are more comfortable and stay in their place.
