Full-Arch Restoration in Amherst
Attractive Full-Arch Solutions
An arch refers to all the teeth in a patient’s upper or lower jaw. For patients whose teeth are missing or severely damaged, Dr. Ang features attractive and effective solutions to restore one or both arches.
Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that the patient removes nightly for cleaning. They’re the most common restoration for patients looking to restore an arch.
Today’s dentures are much more comfortable and attractive than they were in the past. Additionally, dentures are the most affordable full-arch restoration. But Dr. Ang also features implant-supported full-arch restorations that offer advantages you won’t get with dentures.
When you meet with Dr. Ang for your consultation, he’ll provide a full dental examination and review your medical history. Next, Dr. Ang will talk to you about your smile goals so he can go over your treatment options.
Finding the Restoration That’s Right for You
One of the major benefits you get with both of these implant-supported restorations is greater stability. Unlike traditional dentures, an overdenture or an implant-supported bridge will never come out or shift around while you’re talking or eating.
In addition to giving you greater stability, overdentures and implant-supported bridges also provide health benefits that you won’t get with any other type of restoration. For example, when a patient loses a tooth, they immediately begin to lose essential jawbone mass through a process called resorption.
But unlike dentures and dental bridges, our implant-supported solutions prevent resorption by stimulating healthy bone development.
Additional advantages you get with an overdenture or an implant-supported bridge include:
- Speak more clearly
- No restrictions on what you can eat
- Greater comfort
- No slippage when eating or talking
- Promote healthy jawbone growth
- Protect your facial structure from sagging cheeks, sunken lips, or a rotating chin (which can all result from long-term use of traditional dentures)
The Difference Between an Overdenture and an Implant-Supported Bridge
Overdentures and implant-supported bridges are both held securely in place using two to eight dental implants that are surgically placed in the patient’s jaw. Either treatment will provide you with all the advantages listed above.
The major difference between these two types of implant-secured restorations is that an overdenture is removable. But both of these options will enhance your oral health and make you feel better about your smile.
