Dental implants changed the landscape of dental care, enabling many people to improve their confidence and lifestyle.

What is more, implants can last significantly longer than other solutions for the same issue, and this has made them even more desirable to patients.

While dental implants are more commonly used for replacing one tooth, you will be facing a different kind of problem if you’re looking for replacements for multiple teeth. There are many people who have lost most or all their teeth, and putting in implants for each of the missing teeth isn’t always feasible.

This is where full-arch dental implants have proven so useful.

Better Stability and Support

People who’ve lost most or all of the teeth on one or both jaws often rely on dentures. However, the only thing that keeps the dentures in place is the structure and shape of the mouth, and some adhesive, of course.

This is why dentures are known to shift in the mouth or slip out from time to time. This can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. By contrast, full arch implants are supported by titanium posts that keep them in place much more effectively. In other words, if cared for properly, they’re not going anywhere…

Comfort

It’s hard for those with dentures to perform certain activities comfortably, whether it’s chewing on something a little tougher, or even speaking.

With full-arch implants, however, chewing feels a lot like it did with natural teeth. This can greatly improve the quality of life of the wearer.

Better for Your Jaw

Some people may not realize, the part of the jaw that once secured a tooth can degrade once the tooth is gone. Full-arch implants connect to the jawbone in a manner similar to natural teeth and can potentially keeps the jaw bone from degrading at the points of connection.

Value for Money

As with regular implants, full-arch implants cost significantly more than solutions such as dentures. However dentures require replacement on a fairly regular basis. This means that in the long run, the cost of dentures could be significant. When you factor in the ill-fitting nature of dentures and other inconveniences, full-arch implants start to seem well worth the investment.

Convenience

Beyond replacement, dentures need to be removed for frequent cleaning — but taking care of full-arch implants is similar to what you’d do with natural teeth, such as brushing and flossing.

If you’re facing a choice between dentures or full arch implants, the best thing you can do is consult with us. This is a big decision, so a dental professional can help walk you through both options and what they might mean for you. Happy chewing…
