What is a Full Arch Dental Implant?

In the past, if you lost your teeth, there were no fixed solution options. Today, you can have dental implants placed and anchored to a fixed bridge for a permanent solution. This is called a full arch dental implant. Your teeth will look beautiful while being completely stable for the rest of your life. You will eat in the same way you always have while preventing bone loss that may reflect poorly on your facial aesthetics.

In most instances, you will not need to visit your dentist more than eight to 10 times to complete the procedure for your full arch dental implants. You may also discover you are much more comfortable after your procedure than you believed possible. Your procedure begins when your dental implants are installed as a replacement for the roots of your teeth. Delaram Hanookai will provide you with temporary teeth so you can live normally until your full arch dental implants are installed.

Your implants are the foundation for your full arch dental implants. For the complete attachment of your dental bridge, you will need to come back two or three times. Your new teeth will be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. If you are ready to begin the process, South Land dental in Los Angeles offers a full arch dental implants consultation in addition to free dental implants.

The Upper Full Arch

For a full upper arch replacement, all of your upper teeth are replaced with a fixed bridge over your dental implants. The best periodontist will provide you with a stable and attractive solution for your future. The technology used for full mouth dental implants in Los Angeles is on the cutting edge. Removable dentures are an acceptable solution, but they lack the reliability, security and comfort of a full upper arch. Unfortunately, removable dentures can slip at the worst moment. Your upper teeth will be fully supported using as few implants as possible.

The Full Lower Arch

The process for a full lower arch is identical to a full upper arch. The only difference is your lower teeth are replaced as opposed to your upper.

Are All on 6 and All on 4 Full Arch Dental Implants Considered a Full Arch?

Yes, both all on 6 and all on 4 full arch dental implants are types of a full arch. Both offer you a full replacement of your upper or lower teeth. The difference between removable dentures and full arch dental implants is the latter is secured with special connectors. You will not need to remove your arch to eat, talk or perform your typical activities. Your teeth will not slip or slide while you are laughing or having a conversation because they are 100 percent secure.

The best periodontist begins by extracting any remaining upper or lower teeth. Once your dental implants have been installed, they will serve as an anchor for your full arch dental implants. Your new teeth will match the color of your existing teeth to ensure a natural appearance. A special connector called an abutment is used to attach your new arch to the dental implants. Any pain during your surgery is effectively eliminated with a general anesthetic.

The only difference between all of 6 and all on 4 full arch dental implants are the number of dental implants used. Depending on your procedure, you will need either four or six dental implants. The correct procedure for your needs will be determined by your dentist. If the density of your jaw is poor, your dentist will most likely recommend all on 6 because the pressure is more evenly disbursed. Whether you are missing your upper or lower teeth, full arch dental implants may be the ideal solution.

Benefits of Full Arch Dental Implants

The best benefit of full arch dental implants is the support provided for your jaw bone. The strength of your implants ensures your dentures will not fall out or move around. You will discover the procedure is much quicker and more convenient than you believed possible. Unlike procedures performed during the past, a full arch no longer requires months.

You will not need to heal from numerous surgeries because the best periodontist will only need to perform one. If you are having either of the all on procedures performed, Delaram Hanookai will install a temporary denture during the same visit as when your implants were installed. You will actually leave the office looking better than you did when you arrived.

The Average Cost of Full Arch Dental Implants in Los Angeles

The cost of full arch dental implants in Los Angeles depends on your individual needs. The average cost is between $7,000 and $90,000. In most cases, your cost will be approximately $34,000 for either upper or lower full arch dental implants. Your cost is usually between $3,500 and $30,000. You will not need to use any adhesives for stability. You will need to have your remaining upper or lower teeth extracted prior to having your dental implants installed. Your price can increase due to the cost of your extractions.

The reason your procedure is expensive is because of the cost of the associated procedures. You will require both a surgeon and a dentist to complete your procedure. There are a lot of steps necessary to ensure a quality procedure while keeping you safe including:

Bone Graft

You may or may not need to have a bone graft. During this procedure, an extremely small amount of bone is removed from a different area of your body. Your dentist then places your bone directly into your jawbone to provide the support required. The cost of your procedure will be between $250 and $1,100. If the bone is derived from your body by a surgeon, your cost may increase. In this instance, you will pay $2,000 to $3,000 more for the additional surgery required.

Teeth Extraction

If you require a tooth extraction, the additional cost is determined by several different factors. This includes how hard it is to remove your tooth or teeth and the length of time necessary. If surgery is required to remove your soft tissue, your average cost is between $185 and $600. If you do not need surgery, your cost decreases to between $75 and $300.

CT Scan or X-Rays

You will need to have either a CT Scan or X-Ray to enable your dentist to precisely place your implants. The images created will show your dentist the ideal location for your implants. Your cost will depend on the number of images necessary. Your average cost is between $25 and $200.

The Cost of Materials

A standard dental implant requires not only your implant, but also a crown and an abutment. The cost of your implant is generally between $1,600 and $2,000, an additional $1,000 to $3,000 for your crown and $275 to $450 for your abutments.

The Disadvantages of Full Arch Dental Implants

  • Your full arch dental implants are expensive
  • Your dental insurance may or may not cover a portion of your costs
  • Your restorations may require replacement
  • You will require a substantial period of time to fully heal
  • You will need to have surgery
  • There is a very small chance your implants will fail
  • Bone can be lost around your implants

How to Care for Your Full Arch

To avoid bleeding or damaged gums, you need to use a toothbrush with soft bristles for the removal of both plaque and tartar. If you use an electric toothbrush, you can remove more bacteria than with a typical toothbrush due to the accelerated number of brush strokes. Your toothpaste should not contain any abrasive ingredients including a stain remover or baking soda. Abrasive ingredients can wear down your acrylic. If you have porcelain implants, you can damage your glaze.

A water flosser is the same thing as a dental water jet. The idea is to eliminate your bacteria in depths up to six mm. You have your choice of options including attachments to reach areas more difficult for you to clean or created specifically for sensitive gums. A water flosser is a better option than standard dental floss for your full arch dental implants. Use your flosser before you brush your teeth so you do not interfere with the fluoride in your toothpaste.

You should always brush your teeth after you get up each morning to get rid of bacteria build-up and morning breath. Bacteria has had the entire night to build up. You should brush your teeth again before you go to bed. This is an excellent way to eliminate the bacteria building up throughout the course of your day. There is a type of floss created specifically for your full arch dental implants. You can gently and effectively clean both the porcelain and surface of your dental implants.

The ends of the floss make it much easier to clean between your implants and your gumline. If you floss right after you have brushed your teeth, you will improve the fluoride distribution within your mouth. The most common places for the accumulation of plaque and bacteria in your mouth are around and beneath your implant crown. Make certain your brush these areas thoroughly a minimum of twice each day.

Do Full Arch Dental Implants Feel Like Real Teeth

Yes, your full arch dental implant will look and feel like your real teeth. Your implants will be stable with beautiful aesthetics achieved through your dentures. You will be able to use your teeth just like you did in the past within about one day.

The Bottom Line

If you have missing teeth, you can reestablish the beautiful smile and ability to chew properly you enjoyed in the past. Make an appointment with Delaram Hanookai in Los Angeles as soon as you can to start changing your life.
