Choose the Right Solution for You
Removable Implant Retained Dentures
We provide a removable and a fixed full-mouth solution. Implant retained dentures are an affordable way to benefit from dental implant stability. The implants hold the dentures in place, but still allow them to be removed and cleaned after meals. This removable aspect is due to special snaps, called locators, that are used to secure the denture to the implants. Ultimately, the denture rests on both the tissue and implants to allow for its stability. Implants placed for implant retained dentures can often be utilized if the patient ever decides to move into a fixed implant supported bridge later.
Cleanability and cost are the major benefits of implant retained dentures when compared to an implant full arch bridge. Although there is much more material on these dentures than the implant supported bridge option, implant retained dentures allow the individual to completely clean the residual food debris that is generated with wear. Additionally, given that fewer implants are needed for this option, it is markedly less expensive.
Implant Supported Full Arch Bridge
Thanks to advances in dental materials, patients can have a light-weight full mouth implant solution that stays in place like normal teeth. The implant bridge can be supported by as little as four implants, a concept that was pioneered by, and is often referred to as All-on-4®.
Although depending on your unique situation, 5-6 dental implants may be needed to support each dental arch and will be recommended during treatment planning to optimize your long-term outcome. Full-mouth dental implants are the most expensive full arch solution, but they have significant benefits as the only “fixed” option.
Full-mouth dental implants in Apple Valley, MN will never loosen, slip, or fall out of your mouth. The zirconia restoration is cared for just like natural teeth but isn’t susceptible to decay or staining. Additionally, a fixed bridge of teeth can restore over 98% of dental function, allowing you to eat an unlimited diet with comfort and ease.
The incredibly life-like look and feel of zirconia also make full-mouth dental implants the most aesthetic option and the closest thing to a full set of healthy natural teeth!
Our Full-Mouth Dental Implant Process
Step 1: Personalized Consultation
During your personalized consultation, you’ll be able to discuss your needs, smile goals, and concerns as well as any health conditions we should consider. We may capture imaging, frequently from a CBCT scanner, and take digital impressions to help us determine your candidacy for each tooth replacement solution.
Together we’ll discuss the best option for you, along with dental implant pricing, insurance coverage, and financing options. Once we develop a personalized treatment plan, we can determine if you’ll need preliminary treatments, such as bone grafting or tooth extractions, and if these can be completed the day of your surgery or at a separate appointment.
Step 2: Dental Implant Placement
On the day of your surgery, you’ll first receive sedation to ensure you feel relaxed throughout your visit; our patients typically report only minor discomfort, if any. Once you’re comfortable we’ll place two or more dental implants into your jawbone. Our implant dentists complete precise surgical planning to ensure each implant placed is in the exact angle, depth, and location for lasting success and ideal aesthetics.
Whether you need one arch or a full mouth of new teeth, your entire surgical phase can often be completed in just one day. Many patients have temporary teeth attached immediately, which function and look just like natural teeth. You may never go a single day without a complete smile again!
Step 3: Final Smile Restoration
Your treatment site will need three or more months to fully heal after implant surgery. During this time, each dental implant will fuse with the jawbone during a process called osseointegration. After healing, you’ll return to our office to receive your final restorations. Our implant dentists offer some of the most natural-looking options on the market today, including zirconia, which will match the look of natural teeth almost exactly while offering durable function.
We’ll fit your custom-made bridge of new teeth to your dental implants making sure your bite is properly aligned. You’ll leave our office with a lifelike, functional, and confident new look that will last for years to come!
