Full Mouth Dental Implants

The perfect solution for patients missing all or most of their teeth, or with teeth in very poor condition (terminal dentition). Full Arch Dental Implant Rehabilitation is a type of treatment that replaces significantly decayed, worn down and missing teeth with a fixed, lasting option, using four or more implants in the jaw being treated to attach a full arch of natural-looking replacement teeth.


What are full mouth implants?

Full mouth dental implant treatment is a type of complete teeth replacement. Our treatment works by placing four or more dental implant posts securely into your jaw, and attaching a full set of prosthetic teeth to them. Using implants ensures the replacement teeth are secure in the bone and long lasting, providing almost the same function and feel as healthy natural teeth.

Full mouth dental implants rely on osseointegration, which refers to the process of your natural bone growing and securing to the surface of the implant post. Osseointegration ensures the dental implants are maintained securely in your jaw and don’t move.

Who can get full arch dental implants?

Full mouth dental implant treatment has been developed to suit patients who are missing all or most of their teeth, or teeth that are significantly decayed and diseased. Full mouth implants may also be a replacement option for those dissatisfied with their current dentures.

In many cases where patients have decayed teeth, they may also have lost bone in their jaws due to gum (periodontal) disease. Many patients are told that they are not suitable for implants, as the lack of residual bone means implants that are placed may not be effectively supported. However, full dental implants can be an appropriate option for these patients with bone loss, as the spread of implants at the front and back of the mouth allows the dentist to bypass and avoid placing implants in bone-deficient areas.

Importantly, patients do still require a minimum amount of bone to support complete teeth replacement. Our team will undergo a close and thorough assessment of your bone and perform digital virtual planning of your treatment to ensure that your procedure will be well performed and  safely completed. We also have a variety of other teeth replacement options if full mouth dental implants are not an appropriate solution for you.


Our implant procedure

Prior to beginning any treatment, our team will go through a detailed analysis of your existing teeth, oral health, bone volume and density. This ensures that we only commence treatments that we have confidence will create a safe and lasting result. We use 3D digital scans of your teeth and bone to identify the best locations for the implant posts and create a virtual design of your prosthetic teeth and new smile.

The surgical treatment is most often completed under general anaesthetic and begins with removing any remaining teeth in the arch and preparing the jaw for the titanium implants. Once placed, it takes 1-2 days to fabricate your new teeth before they can be attached to the posts.

You may have some discomfort after the surgery, but pain-relief medication will help manage it. Once your treatment is completed, you can maintain your new teeth by brushing and cleaning them regularly, and adhering to a soft food and liquid diet for at least the first three months after surgery. This helps relieve the implants from excessive biting forces whilst they osseointegrate and ensures your new smile will last longer.

Benefits of full arch implants

For those eligible to receive whole mouth dental implants, they offer a number of benefits and advantages over other full arch replacement treatments. A full set of dental implants can be completed in just a couple of days, which is much shorter than other implant and denture treatments which can take a number of months to complete. The treatment also offers a full restoration of the dental arch in a solution that is not only strong and effective but also comfortable, in most cases feeling like solid natural teeth.

What is the cost of full mouth dental implants?

The cost for full mouth dental implants will vary for each patient depending on the complexity of treatment and the location of the implant posts. Additionally, needing to use more than four implants will increase costs as well. However, full mouth implants offer better longevity and greater reliability than other replacement options. Compared to dentures or single implants, full mouth implants are typically a more cost-effective, lasting teeth replacement solution, and do not require additional treatments.

Full mouth dental implant treatment is the overall term used to describe procedures that involve replacing an entire arch of teeth. All On 4 dental implants are a specific brand of full mouth implant treatment.
