Full Smile In A Day

Full Smile in a Day

The Full Arch (fixed hybrid) dental implant procedure is an innovative technique used to restore an entire arch of teeth (either upper or lower) using only four-six dental implants. This procedure is designed for individuals who have a failing dentition, severe dry mouth, multiple lost teeth and are seeking a more permanent and functional solution than traditional dentures.

Here’s how the procedure works:

  1. Implant Placement: While you are under general anesthesia by a CRNA/Anesthesiologist, the teeth are removed and dental implants are placed as a foundation for your new teeth. 
  1. Immediate Loading: Unlike traditional implant procedures that require a healing period of several months before attaching the replacement teeth, this procedure often involves attaching a temporary or provisional set of teeth to the implants immediately after placement. This means you can leave the dental office with functional teeth on the same day as the surgery.
  2. Osseointegration: Over the following months, the dental implants gradually fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This integration provides a strong and stable foundation for the final set of teeth.
  3. Final Restoration: Once osseointegration is complete, a final set of permanent teeth are custom-designed with you and attached to the implants. These teeth are fabricated to provide an aesthetic and functional solution that closely mimics natural teeth.

Procedure offers several benefits:

  1. Efficiency: The immediate loading of temporary teeth means you can walk out of the dental office with a functional smile on the same day as the surgery.
  2. Stability: The strategic implant placement and angulation provide excellent stability and support for the replacement teeth.
  3. Bone Preservation: The angulated placement of the implants often allows for better utilization of available bone, reducing the need for additional bone grafting procedures.
  4. Improved Quality of Life: Patients experience improved chewing ability, speech, and overall quality of life compared to traditional removable dentures.
  5. Cosmetic Enhancement: The final set of teeth is designed to look natural and aesthetically pleasing.
  6. Minimized Discomfort: The procedure is often less invasive compared to traditional implant approaches, leading to minimized discomfort and faster recovery.

However, it’s important to note that while the fixed hybrid procedure can be a great option for many patients, it may not be suitable for everyone. A thorough assessment by a qualified dentist or oral surgeon is essential to determine if you’re a candidate for this procedure and to tailor the treatment plan to your specific needs.
