A full-jaw restoration procedure is designed to restore the chewing and speaking ability as well as the aesthetic appearance of patients who have lost most or all of their teeth. This procedure involves dental implants and implant-retained prosthetics, such as dentures, to fully replace missing teeth so that you can once again enjoy a beautiful, healthy and fully functional smile.
An implant-supported denture is similar in form to traditional dentures. Unlike traditional dentures, however, an implant-supported prosthetic is firmly anchored in your mouth. Traditional removable dentures often become loose in the mouth, limiting an individual’s ability to eat and speak normally. Implants anchor the dentures in the mouth, offering a stable and long-lasting solution that restores oral function as well as promoting better long-term oral health. Additionally, implant dentures are often a more cost-effective solution, especially since we can often retrofit existing dentures with implants for your treatment.
When you receive a full-jaw restoration, our oral surgeon will begin by placing your implant posts. Most cases require four to six dental implants, but our oral surgeon will evaluate your mouth prior to your procedure to determine how many implants you will need and where they should be placed. After your implants have been placed and you have recovered, your denture will be attached. Your final result should feel and function like your natural teeth.
