Missing teeth can cause various issues that may impact one’s oral health and the smile’s appearance. Some patients with extensive damage to their smile may consider dental implants as a tooth replacement option and teeth replacement surgery to put several implants along the arch. These implants are then used to hold a conservative denture in place for optimum fit, function, and appearance. If you live in the Eugene, Oregon area, and want to learn more about full-mouth dental implants, consider an appointment with our team at Distinctive Dentistry.
Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros describe full-mouth dental implants as a permanent replacement for missing or damaged teeth. They are typically used to replace all the teeth in an arch, or both arches, with natural-looking, artificial dental implants that look and function just like natural teeth.
The process involves surgically placing the implants into the jawbone and attaching them to natural-looking prosthetic crowns, bridges, or dentures. This type of implant is an excellent solution for people who have suffered from tooth loss due to periodontal disease or injury.
Full-mouth dental implants can be used for individuals seeking teeth replacement surgery whose teeth have shifted due to aging or conditions such as bruxism (teeth grinding). However, to have teeth implants placed, it is ideal that individuals have sufficient jaw bone. This is required to stimulate bone growth through a process known as osseointegration. The bone grows around the implant after it is placed, allowing it to fully meld with the natural bone and become a functional tooth root replacement. Once the implants are healed, Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros can place a customized denture that snaps into place and restores the smile.
With full-mouth dental implants, you can regain your natural-looking smile while improving oral health! If you want to learn more about this revolutionary type of tooth replacement procedure, contact Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros at Distinctive Dentistry in Eugene, OR.
