Patients who are missing most or all of their teeth in one or both archs can benefit from the stability and natural look and feel provided by a full-arch restoration.v
Patients who are suffering from severe tooth loss or decay may benefit from the comfortable and permanent benefits of the full-arch restoration procedure. An entire upper or lower arch of teeth can be replaced at once using the full-arch restoration procedure. Full-arch restoration is a popular tooth replacement option because it offers the security, aesthetics, and function of dental implants with the convenience of replacing a full arch of teeth at once, like traditional dentures.
What is full-arch restoration?
Just one procedure can completely transform a patient’s smile. The full-arch restoration procedure works by using as little as four dental implant posts to secure a permanently fixed prosthesis.
After the dental implants are surgically inserted into the jaw bone, a healing period will need to take place before the permanent prosthesis can be placed on top of the implants. However, this transition period can be made easier and more comfortable for the patient by having a temporary but fixed set of teeth placed.
To ensure you are safe and comfortable throughout your surgical procedure, Greater Columbus Oral Surgery & Dental Implants has several options for anesthesia.
