Full Arch Replacement
What Is A Full Arch Replacement?
When your teeth have sustained unrepairable damage from trauma or disease, the teeth need to be removed and replaced. Sometimes the entire row or arch of the upper or lower jaw needs to be replaced. We can replace the entire arch with a few dental implants to anchor a full arch or set of beautiful teeth.

How Dental Implants Revolutionized Dentures
As helpful as dentures are for those suffering from tooth loss, they present some problems. Traditional dentures require special cleaning, can be uncomfortable to wear, are prone to slipping, and sometimes even fall out. However, with advances in dental implant technology, we are able to offer better alternatives. As a more stable, permanent alternative to traditional dentures, a full arch replacement can return your smile to its youthful appearance and function.
Dental implants consist of small, durable metal posts anchored in the bone of your jaw in much the same way a natural tooth root would. These implants are stable, sturdy, and permanent, providing a reliable base to which a fixed dental bridge or removable denture is fastened.

A fixed bridge is a permanent replacement for an entire arch of teeth anchored to several implants in your upper or lower jaw. Like natural teeth, it is fixed in place and allows you the freedom and confidence that traditional dentures can’t provide.
Removable overdentures are held securely in place by a bar and clip, or by one of many other attachments currently available. As the name suggests, a patient can take them out to clean as needed.
From check in to check out, by far the most professional in customer service. Five stars. Thank you.
Advantages of a Full Arch Replacement Using Dental Implants
When comparing dental implants to traditional dentures, the pros are readily apparent.
Permanence: Dental implants are permanently fixed to your jaw. They do not need to be removed and, with proper care, will last a lifetime.
Stability: Your fixed bridge or implant-secured denture will not shift, slide, or fall out. It will not need to be glued in place. You will be able to eat, talk, and smile comfortably, just as you could with natural teeth.
Easier eating: Because you don’t have to worry about holding them in place, dental implants allow you to bite and chew more freely so that you can continue to enjoy the same foods you always have.
Bone health: After tooth loss, the bone that once supported the tooth roots begins to deteriorate. The installation of dental implants helps to halt this process and preserves your healthy bone.
Easy cleaning: While dentures must be removed regularly for cleaning, a fixed bridge remains in your mouth and is easier to maintain, much like natural teeth.
Aesthetics: Dental implants replace missing teeth with an alternative that looks and feels natural. Your appearance and your confidence both improve when you can smile without worry.
