Full-Mouth Dental Implants
Full-Mouth Dental Implants for a Permanent Smile
Thanks to advances in dental implant technology, it’s possible for four implants to replace all of the teeth on one side or both sides of your mouth. This can be done with minimal impact, and the results are often more natural than previous methods.
Although tooth loss is common among adults, it’s not something people typically want to talk about. However, there are more than 35 million Americans who have lost all their teeth—including their upper and lower sets.
Instead of living with the discomfort and inconvenience of dentures, many people are opting for full-mouth dental implant restoration. This is a great choice for people who want to enjoy the function and beauty of healthy, natural-looking teeth.
Bring Back Your Smile with Full-Mouth Dental Implants
To grasp this amazing technique for replacing teeth, you need to first understand what a dental implant is. An implant, made of titanium and shaped like a screw, is placed inside your jawbone to support the missing root portion of your tooth.
Once the implant has been set in place, a crown is affixed to give you an artificial tooth that looks and feels like the real thing.
Here’s where it gets exciting: You can get by with fewer dental implants than you might think. To restore your full smile, it is only necessary to place four implants on the top and four on the bottom of your mouth. An entire row of artificial teeth is attached to the implants, giving you a fully restored smile.
There’s no doubt that a full-mouth implant will change your life dramatically!
When you have implants, you’re not just getting new teeth. You’re getting the most advanced technology in dentistry, and you’re also gaining a whole new level of confidence and self-esteem.

Full-mouth dental implants are produced from titanium, which is strong and durable. They are designed to fuse with living bone in your mouth, so they become a permanent part of your jaw. This fusing process helps stabilize your dental implant and prevents future bone loss in your mouth—helping you maintain a more youthful appearance for years to come.
