A New Smile With Full Arch Restoration

santa rosa full arch restorationWhen you lose most of your teeth, or all of them, you need a set of dentures to enjoy optimal oral health and the ability to eat your favorite foods again. With full arch restoration, our team can secure a set of dentures, often in only one visit. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa, CA, oral surgeons talk about full arch restoration.

The Total Loss of Your Teeth

When you lose most or all of your teeth, then you need treatment to improve the health and beauty of your smile. Otherwise, the body will suspend the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the area around the jawbone, which causes the bone to break down. The result is an aged appearance! But with dental implant dentures, we can provide a full arch restoration, replacing every tooth and protecting the stability of your jaw. As a result, you preserve your youthful facial features and enjoy a smile that can last for decades to come, possibly a lifetime!

Creating New Dentures

The denture portion, the part people see when you smile, will be created based on detailed digital images and impressions we take of your smile from multiple angles. In a dental lab, we use this information to design and fabricate the row of new teeth. These may be set in a base that mimics the appearance of gum tissue. The teeth will be crafted from materials like ceramic, which we can shade to offer a lifelike appearance. These will be able to handle daily bite forces and pressures, so you can smile with confidence and eat your favorite foods again!

Inserting Your Dental Implants 

Your new arch won’t be held in place with suction or adhesives. Instead, we will insert as little as four dental implant posts per arch. These will sit at angles and positions that stimulate the growth of jaw structure and also support the denture, which we attach to the posts. For many patients, we can finish the entire process, from implant placement to the attachment of a denture, in only one visit. You may wear a temporary one initially, and then return for your final one at a later date. Regardless, you won’t leave with an incomplete smile, and will also have a complete row of new and beautiful teeth.
