When patients have lost most of their teeth, full mouth dental implants are optimal methods to replace them in both jaws, or in one jaw. With these, you can easily bite and chew food again, your confidence will be restored, and you can smile as bravely as with your natural teeth.
Let’s see all the details you need to know about full mouth dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is placed in the bone, and it’s used to replace lost teeth, with the help of which patients can regain proper chewing ability, can expect clear speech again, and they regain aesthetics – something that is really important for self-esteem. There are different dental brands to choose from.
People who wear traditional dentures are aware of the inconvenience of wearing removable replacement teeth.
In many cases, it is not possible to create stable dentures, they often move in the most unexpected situations, disrupt the sense of taste, and removable dentures that cover the entire palate are extremely comfortable to wear.
Unfortunately, unstable dentures affect your nutrition, speech, and appearance.
However, lost teeth must be replaced, as the inability to chew can also be the cause of serious diseases.
Instead of removable dentures, more and more people choose full mouth dental implants that look and feel like your own teeth and can last forever.
Benefits of full mouth dental implants
High-quality, full mouth dental implants may not be one of the cheapest dental treatments, but it is certainly the best possible solution. Especially for those who have completely lost their teeth or whose existing teeth are unsuitable for prosthetic treatment.
This type of dental replacement means a serious improvement in the quality of life. We have to remember that the ability to bite and chew flawlessly is the most important function of the teeth.
What are the advantages of full mouth dental implants?
- Function restoration – helps to restore the original dental functions. You will be able to bite, chew and eat again, just like before. Full mouth dental implants will improve the quality of speech that has deteriorated due to the lack of teeth.
- Load distribution – if the tooth replacement is done with an implant, the load on the teeth is evenly distributed on the bone during chewing. As a result, the dental bone is evenly and continuously loaded, so it stays healthy.
- Aesthetics – dentures fixed on implants that can be immediately loaded also have the significant advantage of helping to restore the structure of the face, which, among other things, makes the smile more natural. (If implants of an All-on solution can be immediately loaded right after placement, then it can only be with a temp denture for the healing period, but it is not always possible!)
- Durability and easy cleaning – Full mouth dental implants last practically a lifetime, unlike removable dentures. It is also much simpler and easier to keep them clean, which happens in the same way as it is with your own teeth.
Full mouth dental implants abroad
The only downside to full mouth dental implants is that they are quite expensive.
The main reason for this is the dental implant is made of high-purity titanium alloy.
However, you can definitely save a lot of money by getting your full mouth dental implants abroad.
Budapest, Hungary is a very popular choice with dental patients. It has a fantastic cost-benefit ratio, the quality of dental treatments is excellent.
Though you will need a flight ticket and accommodation, you can save up to 70% on average compared to the prices in the UK or Ireland.
All-on-4 and All-on-6 solutions
You don’t have to worry anymore if your teeth are missing or if your removable denture is uncomfortable, painful, or moving.
All-on-4 and All-on-6 are recommended in case of complete toothlessness, or in cases where the existing teeth must be completely removed.
With this technique 4 or 6 dental implants ensure stable fixation of the upper or lower denture. All-on-4 and All-on-6 enable a long-term, safe, and permanent solution through strong and secure base, and thus give a more natural smile.
Since only 4 or 6 implants are required, treatment time is reduced when using the All-on-4 or All-on-6 technique. Your dentist will be able to install the temporary dentures on the same day of the implantation procedure.
Your permanent dentures (complete bridges) will be prepared after a period of 3-6 months. During this time your bones can heal and fuse to the implants.
In all cases, a preliminary consultation and condition assessment with an oral surgeon is necessary. Depending on the amount of bone in the jawbone and the suitability of the jawbone, an oral surgeon determines which of the two dental implants he should use. The dentist will also check whether you need bone grafting.
By using the All-on-4 or All-on-6 technologies, you can achieve spectacular results and a significant improvement in the quality of life.
