Full Mouth Rehabilitation / All-on-4 Technique
Full Arch Reconstruction
Due to root canal infections, tooth decay, loss of tooth structure, genetic factors, or severe form of gum disease, sometimes one’s teeth are beyond saving. In Modern dentistry, many options exist to replace all of the failed or missing teeth. These include but no limited to removable full dentures.
Living with dentures is a thing of the past; in this day and age there are treatment options available to replace teeth permanently.
A full arch reconstruction can be performed either when all teeth are missing, or when the current teeth need to be removed due to issues such as disease or decay. The procedure involves a certain number of implants (artificial roots) being inserted into the jaw bone, depending on the individual case. This can be performed during one appointment or over multiple appointments; depending on the patient’s request. Temporary teeth will be provided at this point to ensure functionality.
The final prosthesis (artificial teeth) will be permanently fixed to the implants. The artificial teeth will be translucent and colour stable, creating a natural looking appearance. If ever required, this prosthesis can be removed by a practitioner.
A careful diagnosis of the reasons why teeth were lost at the first place is essentially in order to avoid any failure with the “new set of teeth”. We believe long term success of your restoration is a must and this can be achieving by carrying out a correct and accurate diagnosis and obtain the highest level of treatment success which our clinical team pride themselves.
Some of the advantages of a full arch reconstruction over a denture include:
- Smile, laugh and speak with confidence
- No more removing dentures at night
- No more ill-fitting dentures
- You can eat the foods you want
