Stable and Lifelike Full-Arch Supported Replacement Teeth

Model of implant supported dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are a stable, fixed-in alternative to traditional dentures.

Dentures have long been the conventional solution for replacing a full arch of missing teeth, and until recently were the only option available. However, dentures have many disadvantages that make them a choice of last resort.

Dentures provide only 10% – 20% of the chewing power of natural teeth and make it impossible to eat all the foods you need for proper nutrition without using a blender. Dentures continually slip or make clicking sounds when you are talking or eating, and chewing can be painful due to the denture rubbing against your gums and creating sores.

Furthermore, wearing dentures accelerates bone loss in your jaw and can cause the lower half of your face to eventually look “collapsed.” The accelerated bone loss also makes your dentures loose-fitting, which requires that they be continually modified or replaced.

Implant-supported dentures restore stability and chewing power

Modern technology now makes it possible to stably support dentures with dental implants. Dentures resting on implants are held securely in position and their chewing power is significantly increased. Depending on your needs, the dentures can be fixed onto the implants or removable. An implant-supported, full-arch dental bridge (made out of a strong, high-quality porcelain) or series of bridges can also be placed as an alternative to implant-supported acrylic dentures.

Our Full-Arch Replacement Teeth Options

After a full clinical exam and evaluation, it will be determined which full-arch replacement teeth option is most suitable to your needs. In the event that you can take advantage of several available options, an explanation and the details and benefits will be given for each option and your questions will all be answered. In this way, you can make a well-informed decision.

Implants can be used to support a full-arch porcelain bridge or series of bridges.

Rubino Periodontics and Implant Dentistry offers several options for full-arch replacement teeth that are permanently fixed in your mouth just like real teeth. These are what we refer to as implant supported dentures.

A customized number of implants can be placed across your dental arch that will support either a full-arch porcelain dental bridge or a series of bridges. Your dental bridges will be made out of high-quality porcelain or zirconia (an ultra-strong, natural-looking ceramic).

You can also be provided with a set of implant-supported teeth made out of high-quality, medical-grade acrylic. This type of full-arch replacement is often known as an “implant-supported denture.”

Whichever option you chose, your teeth will look, feel and function very much like natural teeth, and they will provide nearly the same chewing power. There will be no false palate that covers the roof of your mouth and obstructs your sense of taste and sensitivity to heat and cold.

New Teeth in One Day with the All-on-4® procedure

The All-on-4 procedure uses angled implants to take advantage of areas with the highest bone density.

In certain cases, your new set of fixed-in teeth can be supported using only four implants per arch, thanks to a revolutionary new treatment called the “All-on-4” procedure.

The All-on-4 procedure takes advantage of areas in the jaw where bone is dense and voluminous in almost all patients, even in those patients who have experienced a great deal of bone loss. Specially designed, angled implants are used to get maximum support from these areas of bone—in most cases entirely eliminating the need for bone grafting.

Using this special technique, most patients can receive any necessary extractions, have all their implants placed and walk out with functional replacement teeth on the same day!

Implant-supported removable denture

A series of implants will securely retain your denture in position using special snap-on attachments. The denture will be firmly held in place while snapped in, but you will still need to remove it for cleaning.

Your denture will not slip, you will need no messy adhesives to hold it in place, and your chewing power will be significantly retained and enhanced. You will also be relieved of the discomfort and sores that result from a traditional denture rubbing against your dental arch. This retention system can also be used to stabilize a partial denture.

Implant-supported snap-on dentures are a major improvement over traditional dentures and are a good option for many patients, although permanently fixed-in new teeth provide the most lifelike results, including the greatest gains in chewing power.
