Full Mouth Missing Teeth

Why you should replace missing teeth?

Having edentulous jaws or a need to replace all existing teeth can be dishearting and daunting. Missing several teeth can severely influence your general health, appearance and self-esteem. Consequences of tooth loss include effects on:

  • jaw bone and gum : when there is no teeth, gums and bone are no longer exercised so stimulated that can cause jaw bone to shrink over time. Adjacent teeth can collapse into the empty spaces.
  • appearance : reduced jaw bone can make you look older and cheeks to sag as there is insufficent bone to support and stablize lips and cheeks on the inside

With today’s advancements in dentistry, there are now several techniques and implant systems that can bring back the confidence and function to you.

all-on-4 implants

All-on-4 implants

All-on-4® is a dental implant treatment by Nobel Biocare that provides patients with a provisional fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery. This means that you have an immediate functioning temporary fixed hybrid bridge or full overdentures during the same surgical period.

During the All-on-4 treatment procedure, four implants are placed into the jaw bone – two straight anterior implants and two implants tilted up at 45º in the posterior area. Bone grafts is avoided by tilting the posterior implants by using the available front jaw bone. All-on-4 is an efficient, cost-efficient, graftless solution for treating an edentulous mandible as full mouth dental implants.

Full Dental Implant Bridges

Having dental implant fixed bridges is simliar to having a new set of teeth of fixed bridges placed over each individual dental implant posts. Full implant bridges are ideal long-term solution whereby your implantologists replace exisiting teeth roots with new implant posts at the same specific positions.

Implant fixed bridges is provides for strong foundation and natural-looking aesthetics.

Implant supported Overdentures

Dental Implant supported dentures are an economical option compared to other full mouth fixed implant options. Two to four implants may be placed as retention anchors. A locator, bar or ball is attached as implant abutments and an overdentures snaps over the abutments.

Full implant overdentures is easy to care for, clean and maintain. Unlike full dentures, implant suppor overdentures will not slip and slide providing you with the confidence to speak and smile.

Zygoma Implants

zygomatic implants

The zygoma implant concepts follows a similar concept to All-on-4 for an immediate full-arch prosthetic rehabilitation on upper jaw.

In certain cases, posterior support cannot be achieved with the traditional All-on-4® treatment concept. The Brånemark System® Zygoma implant is an innovative technique where long dental implant posts are embedded into the zygoma area to acquire posterior anchorage for a full-arch prosthesis.

Zygoma Implants enbles cases severe bone loss to have a fixed provisional prosthesis fitted immediately after surgery and avoid potential multiple surgeries required with grafting.
