What is a full arch restoration?

A full arch restoration uses a combination of dental implants and crowns, bridges, or dentures to rebuild all the teeth in one of your arches. Popper Dental may recommend a full arch restoration if you have multiple missing or failing teeth. The team can perform a single arch or full mouth restoration to suit your needs.

Dental implants are small titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots. They hold your replacement teeth securely in place to restore the look, feel, and function of your smile.

Why would I need a full arch restoration?

Missing teeth aren’t just unattractive; they’re also a threat to your oral health. A full arch restoration with dental implants can:

Prevent teeth from shifting

When you have missing teeth, the rest of your teeth can shift toward the empty space. This raises your risk of misaligned teeth or a bad bite.

Preserve tooth-supporting bone

One of the most common consequences of missing teeth is bone resorption. Resorption occurs when your jawbone no longer has teeth to support. The bone begins reabsorbing back into your body, resulting in bone loss.

Maintain face shape

Having a healthy amount of bone in your jaw helps maintain the shape of your face. Without it, your skin can sag, making you look older than you are.

Protect oral health

Missing teeth put you at risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and even further tooth loss. Dental implants can help restore your teeth to prevent decay and damage.

What happens during a full arch reconstruction?

After mapping out your treatment plan, the team at Popper Dental removes any damaged or decayed teeth from your mouth. Next, they surgically place the implants into your jaw, through your gums.

It takes about 6-12 weeks for your mouth to fully heal from dental implant surgery. Once your mouth heals, you’ll return to Popper Dental for your impressions. These impressions serve as molds for your replacement teeth.

Popper Dental has several natural-looking options for replacement teeth, including crowns, a bridge, or dentures. At your final visit, the team connects your new teeth to your implants for a full mouth restoration.
