What to Expect During Your Surgery?
Before going ahead with the full arch dental implant surgery, your doctor will take X-rays and inspect your mouth in detail. Along with that, a proper plan will be created. This would be a plan that can ensure providing you with best possible results at the end of the day. Based on that, your customized surgical template will be created. On top of that, your dentist will also take a look at the most appropriate positions in the mouth to go ahead with implant placement.
During the day of your surgery, your dentist will use local anesthesia for numbing. In addition to that, you will also be provided with sedation. Then he will place at least four implant posts in the jaw. These implant posts will be placed at slight angles to each other, so that you will be able to minimize the overall impact created on bone tissue surrounding the region. Then the full arch dental implant procedure will start. Time taken for the treatment would vary based on the complexity of the surgery.

The Long-Term Oral Health Benefits of Dental Implants
Patients who wear dentures are often dissatisfied by how easily they can shift or fall out. When dentures are stabilized by dental implants, however, they provide a dual-benefit solution that is both durable and similar in function and appearance to a full arch of healthy, natural teeth. This is due to the nature of the dental implant’s titanium post, which when placed, begins to fuse to the jaw bone, creating stimulation that prevents further bone loss and improves oral health. A new denture or prosthesis is then secured to the implants for fully restored biting and chewing function.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 is a protocol that combines the advantages of dental implants and a lifelike prosthesis for a permanent and stable alternative to traditional dentures. Four or more dental implants are strategically placed in the jaw to firmly support a full-arch prosthesis.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures are full-arch denture that snap securely onto dental implants for a strong, stable bite. These dentures can be removed for cleaning, but when in place, do not slip for increased comfort speaking, chewing, and eating
