What are Full-Mouth Dental Implants?

Full-mouth dental implants, also known as all-on-4 dental implants, denture implants, or permanent dentures, are a comprehensive solution for replacing an entire row or both rows of teeth. Typically 4 to 8 dental implants are placed below the gum line, depending on the patient’s oral health, gum condition, and bone density. Once the implants have healed, an entire row of permanent teeth is attached to them. With full-mouth dental implants, patients can enjoy a natural look and feel, making them an excellent option for tooth replacement. The days of struggling to eat with dentures are gone.

  • What are the benefits of full mouth dental implants over dentures?

    Dentures have several disadvantages, such as reduced taste due to the roof of your mouth being covered and difficulties eating. However, the most significant downside is the bone loss experienced due to dentures not replacing natural teeth. This can cause the face to look sunken, so dentures require frequent refittings and repairs. The mouth constantly changes shape, and it no longer fits properly.

    Dental implants do not cover the roof of your mouth and offer a close-to-natural feel, function, and fit, as modern dentistry allows. Furthermore, they prevent bone loss by being embedded into the jawbone, ensuring you retain your natural face shape and dietary function.

    • More comfortable than traditional dentures because implants are more secure and feel like natural teeth.
    • Never have to worry about your false teeth slipping or falling out while you eat or engage in conversation.
