If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full arch bridge or implant retained full denture can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.
Before the availability of dental implants - replacing all your teeth - meant removable full dentures. Dental implants are the solution that your next set of teeth are permanently fixed and look and feel like natural teeth. The placement of multiple strategical positioned implants around the jaw form the foundations for a full set of beautiful fixed teeth.
Each case must be carefully planned and considered on an individual basis. The amount and quality of bone must be measured with the help of DVD scans. In case of atrophied jaws (bone loss), the direction of any bone and soft tissue loss must be carefully evaluated. Availability of bone will finally decide the number of implants and implantation techniques, as well as the material and reconstructive kind of your new teeth.
