When you suffer from extreme tooth loss or damage, our team at the Oral Surgery Group can perform a full-arch restoration to restore your smile. This procedure can be completed by any of our oral surgeons at our offices New Brunswick, East Brunswick, or Middlesex. If you are healthy enough to undergo a tooth extraction, you are most likely healthy enough to receive a full-arch restoration.
Why choose a full-arch restoration procedure?
Full-arch restoration is transforming the way the patients restore their oral health and smile. Our oral surgeons recommend this procedure for patients who are looking for a more stable alternative to removable dentures. Removable dentures can restore a full mouth of teeth, but they often cause discomfort and the inability to eat the foods you want. Full-arch restoration uses dental implants as a base for a fixed denture, which means patients get all the stability, comfort, and full function of implants in a more time-efficient procedure. Whereas dental implants typically require a few procedures to complete the process, a full-arch restoration can often be performed in a single surgical procedure, meaning you will leave our office with a full set of temporary teeth and can immediately begin showing off your new smile.
Full-Arch Restoration Procedure
Drs. Rauch, Engel, R. Stern, Simos, and M. Stern have undergone extensive training to be able to perform the full-arch restoration in an efficient manner. Before the procedure begins, our oral surgeons will answer any of your last-minute questions and then administer your chosen form of anesthesia. Most patients prefer to receive IV anesthesia so they can sleep comfortably until the procedure is over. Once you are asleep, our oral surgeons will strategically place four or more dental implants into your jaw to create the secure foundation needed to support your arch of new teeth.
After placing the implants, the abutments are attached immediately, and then your temporary teeth will be placed. Over the next few months, your implants will integrate with your jaw and create a secure and permanent base for your permanent teeth. Additionally, this integration will help prevent your jaw bone from any deterioration. At the same time, your restorative dentist will be creating your permanent, custom set of teeth.
When your final denture is ready for placement, and your surgical sites have fully healed, your new set of teeth is secured to your implants. Your final set of teeth will look just like natural teeth, and you will be able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
