Full Arch Dental Solutions
Life Dental Specialties provides full arch dental solutions in Springfield and Hadley, MA. Call to learn more and schedule your appointment.
Dental implants are the best solution for patients who are missing a full arch of teeth. When you’ve lost all of the teeth on a single arch, it causes resorption of the jawbone. Over time, bone resorption will lead to a weaker bite, compromised oral health, and a prematurely-aged appearance. A full arch dental implant restoration will prevent this from occurring, but there are a few options to choose from.
When you come to our office for your consultation, Dr. Quinta will evaluate your oral health, go over your dental and medical histories, and discuss your treatment goals with you. Not every full arch solution is a good fit for every patient, but with Dr. Quinta’s expertise, he can help you choose the best option for your unique needs.
The All-on-4 treatment is a unique solution that uses four dental implants to support a fixed prosthesis that replaces a full arch of missing teeth. All-on-4 is an excellent option for many patients who are not candidates for other types of dental implant restorations because it requires less jawbone support. Another benefit of All-on-4 dental implants is that the entire procedure can often be completed in a single day, allowing you to leave our office with a brand new smile.
Fixed Implant Supported Dentures
Fixed implant supported dentures require the placement of four or more dental implants in the jaw. Once your implants have healed, a high quality denture is permanently attached to them to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Because the denture is fixed, you won’t need to remove your denture before going to sleep and you’ll be able to brush it just like you would with your natural teeth.
Removable Implant Supported Dentures
Also known as snap-in dentures, this solution offers more stability and comfort than a traditional denture, but it can still be removed for cleaning, which some patients appreciate. Rather than being held in place with denture adhesive, your denture snaps onto your implants for support.
Individual Dental Implants
For a full arch solution that truly replicates the look and feel of natural teeth, some patients choose to replace each missing tooth with its own single tooth dental implant. Because of the time and expense involved, few patients choose this option, but it is available to those who are interested.
