What are Full Mouth Dental Implants?

Full Mouth Implants are sometimes referred to as hybrid dentures. They consist of a full arch of artificial teeth that are secured to your jaw with just four implanted posts.

While the process for getting individual dental implants can take several months, in many cases, our surgeons can place your Full Mouth Implants in a single day.

This is a good option if you have multiple teeth that need replacing, such as full mouth implants.

Comprehensive Dental Implant Process at Bay Area OSM

The journey to your new smile begins with a thorough consultation at one of our Bay Area locations, where our surgeons utilize cutting-edge CBCT scans and X-rays to evaluate your needs. Should your jawbone require strengthening, we offer bone grafting and sinus lifting to ensure a solid foundation for your implants. Following implant placement, a healing period is observed, culminating in the attachment of your new, permanent teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental implants permanent?

Dental implants cannot strictly be called permanent, but they are considered the most permanent solution for dental loss.

Unlike dentures that can be taken out, dental implants stay in your mouth the whole time. Dental implants don’t move around in your mouth since they have a strong bond with your jawbone.

Dentures may sometimes need to be replaced every five to eight years. However, if you look after your dental implants, they could last well over 25 years. Cleaning your full mouth implants dental implants properly can help them last a very long time.

Will dental implants stop bone loss?

Like all cells, bone cells eventually grow old and need to be replaced. In normal circumstances, natural teeth help to stimulate bone growth in the jaw.

The roots of natural teeth are attached to the jawbone, and as we chew our food, the pressure exerted passes through to the jaw and encourages new growth.

However, when you are missing a single tooth or teeth, the jawbone can weaken in that area.

Dental implants can help in this regard, and this is one of the main reasons why dental implants are considered by dental specialists as the best option in replacing teeth.

The titanium posts exert the needed pressure on your jaw to stimulate bone growth. Without this, your existing teeth could become crooked and even fall out.

What are dental implants made of?

Scientists have discovered that titanium has certain properties that allow the bone to fuse together with it, making a strong bond. Therefore, most dental implants have a titanium implant fixture.

They make up the part that mimics the roots, screw-like parts that fuse to the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This provides a strong foundation for the dental crown that fits on the top.

The crowns are usually made from porcelain or another strong tooth-colored material.
