Restore Your Smile With Long-Term Results
If you suffer from several missing or failing teeth and are looking for a comfortable and long-term tooth replacement option, a full-arch restoration procedure may be right for you.
Full-arch restoration restores an entire arch of teeth at once. Combining the natural look, feel, and function of dental implants with the simplicity of replacing several teeth at once, full-arch restoration eliminates the inconvenience of dentures while providing a complete, secure smile makeover.
If you are experiencing severe tooth loss in one or both dental arches, contact Napa Sonoma Oral Surgery & Dental Implants to see if you qualify for full-arch restoration. Our oral surgeons, Dr. Tyler Boynton and Dr. Alexander McMahon specialize in implant dentistry and helping more patients achieve a complete, healthier, and more confident smile. Contact our offices in Sonoma or Napa, CA, today to schedule a consultation.
How Full-Arch Restoration Works
The full-arch prosthesis sits on as few as four dental implant posts, creating a sturdy and secure foundation with long-term results. After the implant posts are placed, you will receive a temporary prosthesis to wear while you heal. The healing process takes several months, during which the implant posts will integrate with the jaw bone. The temporary prosthesis will look just like an arch of natural teeth. Once healed, your restorative dentist will place the final prosthesis that is custom-made for your smile.
The Benefits of Full-Arch Restoration
Missing one or more teeth can greatly affect your self-confidence. Some patients feel like they must hide their smiles when laughing or eating, and those who wear dentures often feel embarrassed to take out their teeth around others. Our experts at Napa Sonoma Oral Surgery & Dental Implants have a life-changing solution that provides numerous benefits.
Full-arch restoration allows patients to receive a brand-new smile in as little as one day. It takes only one surgical visit for your oral surgeon to insert the dental implant posts and place the temporary prosthesis.
As few as four dental implant posts are used for the full-arch restoration procedure, meaning your oral surgeon can place each implant in its optimal position, often avoiding or significantly reducing the need for additional procedures.
Prevent Bone Loss
Dental implant posts act as tooth roots and stimulate the bone in the jaw just like natural teeth. Unlike traditional dentures that only rest on top of the gums, bone loss can be prevented in patients who receive implant-based treatments like full-arch restoration.
Dental implants are strong, enabling you to eat with your new teeth just like natural teeth. They can bite and chew just like healthy permanent teeth. You can enjoy your favorite foods again without slipping dentures and removable parts.
Love Your Smile
Full-arch restoration restores more than just teeth for our patients. With a brand new smile, you will experience a renewed sense of self-confidence and love showing off your smile.
Full-Arch Restoration Process
At the first visit, Dr. Boynton or Dr. McMahon will perform an oral examination and take 3D scans of your mouth. We will discuss your options for tooth restoration and anesthesia prior to any surgery. If you have been missing teeth for some time, the jaw bone has likely deteriorated in those areas. If there is not enough jaw bone to place dental implants, we will use bone grafts to stimulate the growth of new bone. Once the grafts have healed, you will then be ready for dental implant placement.
When it's time to place your implants, your oral surgeon will administer the selected form of anesthesia and insert the dental implants into the dental arch. Some patients only require four implant posts, while others require more. A temporary denture will be attached to the posts and you will walk out of our office with a brand new smile.
Once the implant posts have healed, your dentist will attach the final prosthesis. In some cases, the final prosthesis is made in advance and attached at the same time as the surgical procedure. We will outline the details and timeline of your treatment during the consultation.
