Types of Full Mouth Dental Implants

  1. All-on-4 Implants: This type of implant uses four dental implants to support a full arch of replacement teeth. All-on-4 implants are often a good option for individuals with limited bone density, as they can provide the necessary support without requiring extensive bone grafting.
  2. All-on-6 Implants: Similar to All-on-4, All-on-6 implants use six dental implants to support a full arch of replacement teeth. This type of implant may be a better option for individuals with more significant bone deterioration, as it provides additional support for the replacement teeth.
  3. Implant-Supported Dentures: These are traditional dentures attached to dental implants for added stability and support. Depending on your needs and preferences, implant-supported dentures can be removable or fixed.
  4. Zygomatic Implants: This type of implant is used when there is insufficient bone in the upper jaw to support traditional dental implants. Zygomatic implants are longer and attach to the cheekbones instead of the jawbone, providing a secure foundation for replacement teeth.

 Procedure for Full Mouth Dental Implants

  1. Initial Consultation: The first step is to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Janu Shah, our chief dentist at Oris Smiles Dental Clinic. During this visit, she will examine your mouth, take X-rays and scans to assess your bone density, and discuss your dental and medical history.
  2. Treatment Planning: Dr. Janu Shah will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs based on your exam and consultation. This plan will include the number and type of implants needed, any necessary bone grafting or extractions, and the overall timeline of the treatment.
  3. Preparatory Procedures: Depending on your situation, you may need to undergo preparations before the implants can be placed. This can include bone grafting to build up the jawbone, extractions to remove any remaining teeth, or other procedures to ensure the implants can be placed safely and securely.
  4. Implant Placement: The next step is to place the dental implants. This involves surgically inserting small metal posts into the jawbone, which will serve as the foundation for the replacement teeth.
  5. Healing and Osseointegration: After the implants are placed, it can take several months for the bone to fully heal and fuse with the implants in a process called osseointegration. You may wear temporary teeth while the implants bond with the jawbone during this time.
  6. Abutment Placement: We will place abutments onto the implants once osseointegration is complete. These will serve as attachment points for the replacement teeth.
  7. Replacement Teeth: The final step is to attach the replacement teeth to the abutments. Depending on your needs and preferences, these may be fixed or removable.
  8. Follow-up Care: After the replacement teeth are in place, you will need to attend regular check-ups with us at Oris Smiles Dental Clinic to ensure the implants’ success and maintain good oral hygiene.
