Patients in need of full arch dental implants typically have multiple failing or missing teeth due to congenital defects, poor oral care, or accidents outside their control. Full arch dental implants can help you restore an entire arch of teeth (top, bottom, or both) with a natural-looking and functional one-piece bridge of teeth that is permanently attached with dental implants. Many times, denture wearers decide to “upgrade” to full arch dental implants or implant supported dentures in order to enjoy the higher quality of life implants provide. Our team at Periodontal Centers of Rochester is highly experienced at replacing missing teeth with a lifelike full arch replacement.
Placing full arch dental implants is an advanced surgical procedure that takes extensive planning, skill and experience to perform successfully. Periodontists are considered the go-to source for dental implant surgery thanks to their specialty focus on bone, gums and implantology. All our doctors are board-certified periodontists that are academically trained and follow sound, time-tested treatment plans for full arch dental implant cases. At Periodontal Centers of Rochester, we utilize our expertise, advanced technology and application of sedation dentistry to give you the most successful full arch dental implant surgery in the Rochester area.
When placing full arch dental implants we typically perform the ProArch procedure, which features modern Straumann® dental implants. The ProArch system is able to combine several treatment steps at once to make the procedure faster and more affordable. We utilize our cone beam CT scanner and state-of-the-art dental implant guides to strategically place dental implants in areas of your mouth that have the most bone volume. With just four to six dental implants, you will be fit with a customized splint that attaches to a natural looking and fully functional one-piece permanent bridge. These teeth will look and function just like natural teeth and nobody will even be able to tell you were missing teeth in the first place.
