What is a Full Mouth Treatment?
In cases where all teeth need to be replaced, a full mouth treatment using dental implants is an effective option for many patients. A full mouth treatment is designed to look and function like a complete set of teeth, so you can smile, eat, talk and maintain full functionality of your teeth without worrying about appearance or that your teeth will slip or become loose.
A full mouth treatment typically consists of:
- The placement of six to eight dental implants in the upper jaw
- Four to six implants in the lower jaw
- Durable, natural-looking porcelain teeth that are fixed to these implants by dental cement or screws
What Can I Expect From a Full Mouth Treatment?
The extent of your treatment process can depend on your individual condition and preferences, but it begins with the placement of biocompatible titanium screws into your jawbone. These small screws are then left to heal for several months in order for the hardware and bone to create a solid, stable foundation for your new smile. Once your mouth has been prepared, a full set of upper and lower porcelain teeth will be customized to fit securely into your mouth for seamless treatment. Once the teeth are either cemented or screwed into place, your new teeth will appear and function as normal teeth.
How Can I Maintain My New Teeth?
At Dental Implant Center, we utilize the strongest and longest-lasting materials in the industry, including porcelain, to restore patient smiles. As your full mouth treatment is fixed into place, your new teeth can be cleaned and maintained with regular dental hygiene habits and a thorough cleaning every six months. Although instances of tooth decay and cavities are reduced with implants and porcelain teeth, proper dental care is still necessary in order to keep them looking radiant and ensuring that they are functioning properly.
