At Fort Lauderdale Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we offer our patients a unique treatment for restoring an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. This innovative dental restoration method is called full-arch restoration. Rather than replacing teeth with a temporary prosthesis, like a removable denture, or costly individual dental implants, Dr. Roland Hernandez can place four or more specialized dental implants in the mouth which will attach to a custom-designed, fixed denture. This method delivers a full-arch restoration of beautiful white teeth in an all-inclusive procedure. Patients often choose full-arch restoration because it offers a long-term restoration that looks and functions like natural teeth.
Am I a candidate to receive a full-arch restoration procedure?
Many patients who do not qualify to receive other prosthesis options, like individual implants or a removable bridge, can still be considered candidates to receive this treatment. If you have lost or are on the verge of losing your entire upper or lower arch of teeth, you may be eligible for full-arch restoration. At Fort Lauderdale Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we want to ensure that you receive the prosthesis that is right for you, your preferences, and your mouth. We will explore all of your options for tooth replacement with you to find the best possible solution.
Why should I choose full-arch restoration?
When patients suffer from extensive tooth loss, it can be difficult to find the right solution. Many patients express the need for an affordable solution that is a high-quality tooth replacement to restore both function and aesthetics to the mouth. Patients want something that feels comfortable for daily wear. We know that the best solution to meet all of those criteria lies within full-arch restoration.
Restoring an entire upper or lower arch of teeth with individual dental implants requires an extensive restoration and recovery process and can also be an extremely costly process. Some patients are recommended for removable dentures or a bridge tooth replacement; however, these options often rely on the strength of adjacent teeth to carry their burden or involve the grinding down of healthy teeth for placement.
At Fort Lauderdale Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we want to provide you with the very best option for tooth replacement that feels and looks the most like your natural teeth. One reason that we offer full-arch restoration is that it is one of the quickest dental restoration procedures possible. In some cases, your procedure can be completed in just one or two surgical visits! This offers patients a reduced post-surgical recovery time and reduced discomfort after the procedure, ensuring that you are chewing, speaking, and smiling again in no time!
Benefits of full-arch restoration include
- Increased Functionality. Full-arch restoration provides the highest ratio of implant-to-bone contact. The implants are anchored at an angle, ensuring that the replacement teeth are supported and adequately secure for guaranteed longevity.
- Improved Clinical Results. Full-arch restoration employs minimally invasive techniques for implant placement. The implants are placed directly into the jaw bone and fully support the weight and function of the replacement set of teeth.
- Increased Flexibility. Since the replacement teeth can be attached to the four-implant base within the same appointment, the patient can enjoy the benefits of a new arch of teeth almost immediately!
If you are interested in finding out if full-arch restoration is right for you, we encourage you to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Hernandez at Fort Lauderdale Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. After meeting with you, he will develop a plan for tooth replacement that fully restores your smile.
