If you’re missing many or all of your teeth, Dr. Straw can completely restore your smile through full-arch restoration. We offer full-arch restoration in El Dorado Hills, Placerville, and Irvine, CA. This life-changing procedure involves supporting a permanent denture with dental implants on one or both arches of teeth. It can also be referred to as Teeth-in-a-Day because you can walk into our office with many missing or failing teeth and walk out with a completely new, healthy smile.
Benefits of Full-Arch Restoration
This procedure offers the same benefits as dental implants because it uses them to secure the permanent denture. Dental implants fuse with the jaw bone, keeping it strong and preventing atrophy. Other benefits include:
- Complete Functionality. This new fixed full arch of teeth will function just like natural teeth. Eat the foods you want to eat, brush and floss regularly, and enjoy living without having to hide your smile.
- Restore Aesthetics. We all want a smile to be proud of, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with full-arch restoration. The prosthesis is customized to fit the shape of your mouth and will resemble a natural set of teeth.
- No Denture Problems. Traditional dentures slip around and cause sores. You must remove them during eating and cleaning, which can be inconvenient. Dentures should also be replaced every 5 years because they wear down.
- Prevent Bone Loss. Dental implants keep the jaw bone healthy and strong through stimulation. This prevents bone loss and facial sagging.
The Full-Arch Restoration Procedure
This procedure is similar to a standard dental implant placement. Dr. Straw, will outline the details during your first visit so you will know what to expect. We use advanced 3D imaging to create digital models of the jaw bone and teeth. This technology plans the implant placement and results in more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient.
Any remaining teeth in the dental arch will be extracted, and your surgeon will place the dental implant posts. As few as four dental implant posts are used, but we may use more to fully secure the prosthesis. Once the implants have been placed, the new arch is attached and you have a brand new smile.
We provide instructions to follow to minimize recovery time, and we are always happy to answer questions you have throughout any part of treatment. Our goal is to improve the oral health and confidence of our patients, and our team is here to support you every step of the way.
