A full arch replacement, also sometimes known as a full arch restoration, All-on-4/6 or Same Day Teeth is exactly as its name suggests – a dental procedure that is designed to replace an entire upper or lower arch of missing teeth with artificial alternatives. These are fixed securely and permanently into your mouth using dental implants. Although most patients only get one arch replaced at a time, it is possible to carry out the procedure on both arches in one appointment.
The full arch replacement is possible in just one day thanks to the careful placement of the implant posts. These are positioned into areas of the jaw where the bone is densest and placed at an angle that enhances their stability. This enables them to be loaded with a temporary arch of teeth immediately. In the meantime, your final prosthetics will be being created. Whether they are being placed onto four or six implant posts, your final, artificial teeth will be custom-designed specifically for your smile and placed into an acrylic gum veneer attached to a titanium framework. This looks and feels just like natural teeth and can be loaded onto your fully-secured implant posts, completing the process.
Unsurprisingly, patients who opt for a full arch replacement using dental implant technology experience all of the benefits of dental implants combined with the convenience of all of their custom-designed artificial teeth being loaded onto one attachable device. These include:
The convenience of leaving with a functional and attractive smile the very same day
Robust, secure dental implants that are placed with the utmost precision and care
High-quality, titanium implants posts
A healing process that adds strength to your jaw bone and prevents deterioration and loss of facial structure
A superior level of accuracy and safety throughout the procedure
The confidence of a fully restored smile
No compromise on what you can eat or drink while your final artificial teeth are being created
Artificial teeth that blend seamlessly with your natural ones, giving you the ultimate discretion
A solution that is robust, long-lasting and a great investment in your smile
Every patient that we see is completely unique and therefore we make our recommendations on a case by case basis. To determine if you are a suitable candidate for a full arch replacement you will need to attend a consultation with our dentist. Typically, patients who are deemed good candidates for a full arch replacement:
Have enough healthy, dense bone in their jaw to support the implants
Are missing at least 4 or 5 permanent teeth from one of their arches of teeth
Who need a quick replacement for an existing tooth loss solution
Who need a functional and attractive smile restored in a hurry
Who are looking for a natural and discreet smile
Have limited time to attend dental appointments
Have healthy gum tissue and no long-standing dental problems that need to be taken care of before implants can be placed
