If you need to replace many or a full arch of your teeth, our periodontist may recommend one of several implant treatments for you. These treatment options include implant-supported dental bridges and implant-supported dentures. We welcome you to call Lawrence Periodontics, LLC at 785-312-3820 to learn more about full arch tooth replacement with implants and schedule your consultation with Dr. Jeffrey C. Hambleton in Lawrence, Kansas.
Implant-supported bridges are a fixed solution, meaning that they are not removeable. If you receive this treatment, our periodontist will insert the implants into your jaw. After a period of healing, the bridge will be secured to the implants to provide you with a natural-looking, highly stable restoration.
Implant-supported dentures may be either fixed or removable. When you receive this treatment, our periodontist will surgically place implants in strategic locations. Depending on your needs, you may have as few as two implants or as many as eight. The denture will then be secured to the implants to provide you with a functional, confident smile.
Benefits of implant-based full arch restoration include:
- Eating and speaking normally
- A stable, permanent solution that will last a lifetime when properly cared for
- Prevention of bone loss
- Preservation of your facial appearance
- Restoring a healthy bite
You may need up to 8 appointments with our periodontist to complete your implant treatment.
