If you’ve lost a few teeth over the years, you have another option to restore your smile. Dental implants are the patient-preferred solution for replacing missing teeth.

You can benefit from the revolutionary system to invest in a functional, beautiful smile.
What Is Full-Arch?
Full-Arch full mouth restorations offer the most predictable results when used to treat significant tooth loss. The Full-Arch company is at the forefront of dentistry for their defined protocol for the placement and restoration of dental implants. The company works closely with our office to promote the best results, so you can enjoy a solution that closely mimics your natural teeth.
Dr. Brenden is certified in Full-Arch. He sticks to strict standards to guarantee the utmost success when placing and restoring the implants. He strives for clinical excellence to promote the long-term success of your new smile. It can last for decades with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene.
How Does Full-Arch Work?
The Full-Arch process is like the traditional method. You’ll first need a thorough consultation with your dentist in Wethersfield to ensure you’re a candidate for dental implants. We’ll use a CT scan of your jaw to ensure your bone can support the implants. In addition, it allows us to pinpoint the precise location for your implant posts.
Your posts are strategically placed into your jawbone to stabilize your denture; however, you’ll need to be fully healed before getting your replacement teeth. Your bone will fuse to the posts through a process called osseointegration, which can take several weeks. Once your jawbone has healed, the laboratory will design your restoration using the latest dental technology.
The trained technicians will use the information we’ve provided to carefully craft your new teeth from materials supported by the American Dental Association. Don’t worry, we’ll explain the entire process and review your replacement teeth to ensure you achieve the results you expect. After your new teeth are ready, your denture is attached to the implant posts using special fixtures called abutments.
Am I a Candidate for Full-Arch Dental Implants?
If you’ve suffered significant tooth loss in one or both arches, you might be a candidate for Full-Arch dental implants. If you have good oral and general health, they can be the solution for you. In addition, you might benefit from them if:
- You’re ready to eliminate slipping and irritation.
- You want to enjoy your favorite foods again.
- You want added stability.
- You’re ready to restore your confidence.
- You want a long-term investment.
You’ll be able to eat pretty much anything you want and smile confidently knowing your new implant-retained denture looks and feels natural.
Full-Arch Dental Implant FAQs
Dr. Brenden and our team are eager to help you regain a healthy, complete smile with Full-Arch dental implants. However, we completely understand if you want to learn more about the treatment before you schedule your consultation. That is why we have compiled the following list of frequently asked questions. If you do not see the information you were hoping to find, you are more than welcome to contact us directly.
Will I Be Able to Remove My Prosthetic Teeth?
One of the most convenient things about Full-Arch teeth is that they are permanently attached to their abutments. Your dentist may remove them at your checkups to examine both your gums and your prosthetics, but other than that, your new smile will be with you all the time. This feature simplifies your daily oral care routine and eliminates the possibility that you will accidentally lose or drop your new teeth.
How Much Does Full-Arch Treatment Cost?
Our team will give you an estimate when you come in for your consultation. In many cases, Full-Arch costs less than full-arch replacement that uses traditional dental implant techniques. Some insurance policies cover dental implants, so we will help you find out whether you can use your benefits for Full-Arch. You may also be eligible for low-interest or no-interest financing through CareCredit.
What If I Accidentally Damage My New Teeth?
Various activities, such as teeth grinding or eating extremely hard foods (like jawbreaker candies and ice) may damage your prosthetic teeth. If you notice signs that your Full-Arch denture is functioning at less than its best, give us a call. We can complete some repairs right in our office. In other cases, we will have to send your denture to the Full-Arch laboratory. If you need an entirely new denture, we will make arrangements to get one for you as soon as possible.
Will I Need a Bone Graft?
If you have suffered significant bone loss since you lost your natural teeth, you might need a bone graft. However, the Full-Arch technique strives to utilize the bone you already have, avoiding the need for a graft if at all possible.
Will My Age Affect My Candidacy for Full-Arch Dental Implants?
The Full-Arch treatment protocol has been used to help people as young as 21 years old and as mature as 93 years old. Medical conditions and habits that might affect your ability to heal after surgery are much more important than your age. For example, a senior who has never smoked may heal quicker after surgery than a younger person who regularly uses cigarettes.
