What is the Difference Between Full Arch Dental Implants and Implant-Supported Dentures?

The ultimate goal of any dental implant procedure is to restore your beautiful, happy smile completely. The dental professionals at Paradise Dental understand how hard missing, cracked, or decayed teeth can make day-to-day life much more difficult; Simple pleasures like smiling and eating become painful! We offer both full arch dental implants and implant-supported denture procedures in order to restore your smile completely. Follow along as we explain the differences of each procedure in detail!

Full Arch Dental Implants

Our Drs. Stephen and Helene Hamelburg are both extensively trained and experienced in providing full arch dental implants. During this procedure, they coordinate with an expert oral surgeon to keep you stress and pain-free through general anesthesia throughout the whole process. The rest goes as follows:

  • Four posts are placed into each corner of your jaw
  • Posts must heal
  • Once healed, restorations are affixed to the posts using abutments 
  • You receive a complete set of teeth comprised of shiny, strong, authentic-looking dental crowns or bridges!

If you take care of your full arch dental implants regularly and properly, they will stay in place perfectly for a lifetime! With full arch dental implants, you are able to receive a  complete set of strong, new teeth, no teeth-related dietary restrictions, smooth, clear speech, and a  lifetime of healthy smiles!

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dentures become necessary for every adult at some point in their life. They have been around for a long time as they are essential and extremely helpful for those experiencing teeth loss. However, traditional dentures have many flaws. They tend to move around or fall out throughout the day, you must be cautious of what you eat, and you constantly have through tubes of denture cream. Paradise Dental provides implant-supported dentures because they are a much more reliable and permanent option! 

For this procedure, implant posts act as anchors in place of your tooth roots and dental crowns or bridges as the visible, above-the-gumline part of the tooth. It is possible even to transform your ordinary dentures into implant-supported dentures! Implant-supported dentures allow you to eat, talk, laugh, and smile without worry, take adhesives out of your grocery budget, and preserve the strength of your jaw!
