Dental Implants Transform Smiles for Life
According to the American Dental Association, three or more decayed or missing teeth is common in adults aged 20 to 64. Tooth loss can lead to declining oral health and function, negatively impacting your chewing and nutrition. Even a single missing tooth can cause loss of bone and shifting of surrounding teeth. The empty spaces can harbor bacteria and cause a gum infection that can spread to other parts of your body if left untreated. Like most people with missing teeth, you may also be experiencing emotional side effects because you’re embarrassed to smile or interact with others. Full mouth dental implants are the only permanent tooth replacement solution for your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. At Reimels, Miller, Paterra Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we find it gratifying to see patients flash their beautiful smile and newfound confidence after they get full mouth dental implants in Huntersville, NC.
The Gold Standard Tooth Replacement
Decades of research have shown that dental implants are the most optimal method for replacing missing teeth. Full arch dental implants in Huntersville, NC provide longer lasting, higher functioning, and better-looking results. The dental implant is a small titanium or ceramic post that replaces the root of your missing tooth. Attached to the implant is a connecting piece called an abutment, which is capped with a natural-looking prosthetic crown. Thanks to advances in technology, we can adapt the implant procedure to a wide variety of cases. If you’re suffering from missing or severely decayed teeth, with or without bone loss, you’re likely a candidate for this transformative procedure.
Your Beautiful Smile Makes Us Smile
Whether you have cracked, decayed, or missing teeth, dental implants provide a reliable and natural-looking solution. Dental implants are permanently secured in your jawbone, eliminating common issues associated with dentures, such as teeth falling out, clicking, slipping, and removal at night for cleaning. Dental implants allow you to resume eating the foods you love, typically without any discomfort. When you receive full mouth dental implants in Huntersville, NC, you’ll enjoy a renewed pearly white smile that looks natural, bright, and beautiful.
Step One: Consultation and Planning
Many factors can determine if you’re a good candidate for full mouth dental implants. The first step of the journey is a full evaluation by one of our skilled dentists. During this evaluation, we’ll perform a thorough examination of your jaw, teeth, mouth, and overall health. We use CBCT and iTero scans to identify any bone loss and identify the best location for your dental implants by looking at 3D views of the sinuses and nerves in your mouth. If you have any remaining teeth and/or bone loss, we can usually extract teeth and perform bone grafting during the same appointment. Prior to receiving your implants, this area needs to heal for a few months to allow the bone grafting material to integrate with your jawbone.
Step Two: Guided Implant Surgery
The CBCT and iTero scans we took during your evaluation are used to create computer-aided guidance. Being able to visualize the placement of your dental implants in 3D eliminates guesswork and potential complications. This also allows our team to preplan and create a precise permanent restoration and place it the day of the surgery. In the hands of our experienced dental team, guided surgery combined with proper planning elevates the level of excellence while increasing efficiency and safety. This advanced technology also enables us to create immediate load tooth replacement in some cases. Same-day full mouth dental implants eliminate the need to suffer another day with the negative consequences of missing teeth.
Step Three: Healing and Final Restoration
Following placement of full mouth dental implants, the healing process typically takes at least three months. During that time, your implants will permanently fuse with your jawbone to provide a solid and strong support for your new teeth. When this phase is complete, you’ll return to our office to be fitted with a customized full mouth restoration created from high-quality, durable material that looks and feels like natural teeth. This offers superior strength and aesthetics, resists stains and fractures, and is wear-resistant.
Delivering Smiles with Above and Beyond Care
When we create and place customized dental implants, your comfort is always a priority. We offer several types of sedation depending on your needs, including IV. Our dentists’ ongoing advanced training in the latest dental implant techniques and membership in organizations including the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and Academy of General Dentistry ensures clinical excellence. When you receive full mouth dental implants in Huntersville, NC, you’ll soon discover how our unique blend of passion and compassion coupled with advanced technology enables us to deliver above and beyond care. We also offer limited 5-year warranties at our discretion, as long as you follow all maintenance recommendations.
