What are full Mouth Dental Implants
If you find yourself seeking a dental solution for missing tooth or teeth, your dentist will most likely offer two popular options: inexpensive bridges or dentures. Both will effectively deal with the awkwardness caused due to missing teeth. And if you need a replacement for the full set of teeth, the dentist may recommend full mouth dental implants.
But between dentures and implants, implants, though pricey, provide clear advantages over dentures. Nevertheless, knowing about the benefits of implants will help you make a more educated decision to get back your dazzling smile and oral health.
There’s no one better than a highly-qualified dentist to aid you in making this decision. At San Diego Dental Implants & Periodontics, Dr. Jay Akef and his staff have been providing expert guidance and dental implantation experience to patients for more than 27 years. Dr. Akef has successfully placed more than 12,000 dental implants and conducted more than 23,000 advanced surgical procedures. Meanwhile, here’s more on why dental implants are such a popular dental solution for missing teeth.
Benefits of Full Mouth Dental Implants
1. Dentures Are A Permanent Solution
Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. But if you have dentures, they need to be removed daily, and crowns and bridges regularly maintained and also replaced. It’s the dentist who places the full mouth dental implants and attaches implants, which are like small screws, directly into the jaw bone. Then crowns are connected to the implants for a natural-looking but secure fit and long-lasting result. The full set of implants is customized for your mouth and is like one bar of teeth that can be placed in the mouth to fill in your smile. Further, implants being permanent don’t require adhesives.
2. Solid Fit Of Implants Is Comforting
Stability and the comfort they offer is a significant reason why implants are a preferred option. Dentures, too, attach well as they use metal clasps and a framework for teeth attachment, and fit properly to the teeth. As implants are significantly more securely attached to the jaw bone, patients need not have any concerns about stability. The high comfort factor of implants makes them a favored option to naturally replace a full set of teeth that are missing, damaged, or diseased.
3. Implants Don’t Harm Bone Health
According to The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), full mouth dental implants are far superior to dentures when it comes to dental and bone health. In fact, the AAP has cautioned that wearing dentures can lead to bone deterioration, which in turn can cause recessed jaw bone or a collapsed mouth. Whereas, dental implants fully integrate into the jawbone, and not only preserve bone health but also your original smile.
Full Mouth Dental Implants Are Easy to Maintain
Implants Are Easier To Maintain
Dental implants are often described as a "set it and forget it" dental solution for missing teeth. This quality of implants can be attributed to the fact that they attach permanently to the bone, don’t need to be removed for cleaning or maintained due to repairs. You can take care of them just as you would your natural teeth by brushing at least twice a day, daily flossing and routine dental checkups.
Given all the benefits and advantages of wearing implants, you can relax knowing that you are wearing something that is as near your natural teeth as possible. To understand your options for missing teeth, speak with your dentist about available options, and to decide if full mouth dental implants are best for you. Dental implants usually cost more than dentures, but the confidence and comfort you receive from them is indeed priceless.
