Patients missing most or all of their teeth are already aware of the challenges they deal with on a daily basis. They may feel incredibly self-conscious about the way they look, and may find it impossible to enjoy the favorite foods they once craved. Due to this, they may make it a priority to speak to a dental professional about their options. The team at Marsh Cove Dental and Implant Center in Naples, FL is pleased to offer a range of tooth replacement options, including popular full-arch implants.
What are full-arch implants?
Full-arch implants, sometimes referred to as “all-on-fours,” utilize four dental implants along the dental arch. These are placed and then restored with a conservative full denture that snaps into place. While full dentures are also available, they require patients to use dental adhesives to keep them in. This can be difficult and not always reliable, causing patients great frustration. Instead, by utilizing dental implants to hold the dentures in place, patients can feel confident when enjoying otherwise difficult foods to eat such as apples or steak.
Why choose full-arch implants?
There are many reasons why a patient in the Naples, FL area might consider using full-arch implants instead of traditional full dentures to replace an arch of teeth. Full-arch implants are:
- Reliable, as they use the bone of the jaw for stability and strength
- A smart investment, allowing patients to enjoy their new restorations longer
- Made of titanium, a biocompatible material with the body
- Best at providing stability and strength for enjoying one’s favorite foods
- Can last a lifetime with proper care
Who is a candidate for full-arch implants?
The best candidates are those with sufficient bone structure, which ensures successful placement of the implants and retention. During an evaluation, our dental team will take a series of x-rays to check the bone health and decide if patients are ideal for this or other restorative treatments.
