If you are missing all or most of your teeth, you likely face a number of daily struggles. You may find it difficult to eat a balanced diet, and you may lack confidence in social situations. Fortunately, the team at Thrive Dental and Orthodontics is ready and eager to help you rebuild your lost smile via dental implants. Soon, you may once again be the owner of a complete, beautiful, and strong set of teeth.
Full mouth replacement in Frisco begins with an in-depth consultation with our team, wherein we’ll determine your candidacy for dental implants. We’ll also answer your questions about your treatment options and help you understand things like your treatment’s timeline, its cost, and how to care for your mouth to give your new smile the best chance of success.
When you are ready for it, you’ll undergo implant placement surgery, wherein dental implants will be placed at strategic positions throughout your jaw. After the implants have bonded with your body, you’ll receive permanent, implant-supported dentures that replace all of your lost teeth.
Instead of resting on top of the gums like traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures are anchored in the jawbone via dental implants. The exact number of implants you need will depend on your unique bone structure. Following the placement surgery, you’ll go through a recovery period of a few months. Then, our team will design and place your new teeth. An implant-retained denture may be fixed permanently in place, or it may be removable and “snap” onto attachments on top of the dental implants.
As its name implies, the All-on-4 technique uses just four dental implants to replace an entire arch of teeth. Two of the implants go in the back of the jaw at an angle, while the other two are placed at the front of the jaw. This strategy provides strong support for the new teeth while using as few implants as possible. Patients receive a provisional (temporary) denture on the same day as their implant surgery. However, you’ll still need to wait a few months before you receive your permanent denture.
