Full Mouth Implant Bridges / Full Dental Implants
If you’re missing multiple teeth or require a whole new set of teeth, full mouth implant bridges may be the right solution for you. Also known as “All-On-4®” as developed by Nobel Biocare or “full dental implants”, full mouth implant bridges are a part of an advanced procedure that replaces missing teeth with a new set of teeth that is supported by only four implants. Full mouth implant bridges are one of the more popular forms of dental implants among Perth patients as they provide an alternative solution to dentures, and they are suitable for those who may be missing all or most of their teeth or who may be suffering from advanced gum disease.
In addition to being permanent, long-lasting, and natural looking, the All-On-4® technique from Nobel Biocare is a time effective way of administering a full set of fixed replacement teeth and can generally be fitted in as little as one to three days. We use an equivalent technique and implants to All-On-4® at Perth Dental Implant Centre using our own full mouth dental implants to restore your smile.
The term “implant” refers to the small, screw-shaped posts placed into the bone which are used to mimic the root of a missing tooth and fix the bridge and new teeth to the mouth. These posts are made from titanium and are placed into the jawbone and left to fuse over time via a process known as osseointegration.
How Do Full Dental Implants Work?
Previously, multiple implants would be required to support a full set of new teeth (i.e. one implant per tooth), which often involved bone grafting procedures and subsequently resulted in a longer procedure and higher cost to the patient. The technique in which we attach the full dental implants in Perth now requires only four dental implants placed in a way which avoids the need for bone grafting. These four dental implants are then used to support a whole set of teeth for either the upper or lower jaw.
After removing any remaining teeth, the four implants are placed around the mouth and are angled at 45 degrees to avoid implicating vital structures. Impressions of both the gums and jaw are taken at the time of surgery where they will then be used to fabricate a bridge. Lastly, this bridge can then be attached to the implant 24-48 hours later, giving you a brand-new set of teeth and full smile within three days.
Advantages of Full Mouth Dental Implants
If you have no teeth, suffer from loose dentures or your remaining teeth are unhealthy and will be lost in the future, full dental implants may be the solution for you. There are many benefits associated with full mouth dental implants including:
- Natural, comfortable and fully fixed teeth that look, feel and act as though they’re real
- Improved functioning including chewing, eating and drinking
- Oral health and nutritional benefits – stemming from being able to eat more nutrient rich foods
- Long lasting – if maintained with good oral hygiene, implants will serve their owner for life
- Fewer implants – only four implants are required as multiple missing teeth can be fitted to a single implant
- May remove the need for bone grafting procedures as less implants are needed
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Fast treatment time – within 1-3 days
- Tried and tested techniques with high success rates
- Healthier, natural-looking smile
