We had a patient at Jupiter Dentistry who thought his teeth were hopeless. They had gone through extensive wear, tear, and damage, and whatever was left was yellowed and stained. He felt as if he was stuck like that. This patient decided to visit us one day and asked us what his options were. We recommended a full-arch, implant-supported bridge. We showed him what standard of results to expect and he agreed to the procedure. It was life changing, a whole staircase up in terms of quality of life.
We are more than happy to show you Bob’s before and after photos. We can share results from a large archive of cases that show just how esthetically impressive and stunning our full-arch, implant-supported bridges are.
The Benefits of a Full-Arch, Implant-Supported Restoration
When all teeth along an arch are missing, or so damaged that they are more painful than useful, your quality of life is so low that there’s no reason to live like that. Not with the modern dental technologies and procedures available today.
An implant-supported bridge can help you:
- Eat and speak without pain, discomfort, and difficulty.
- Preserve your facial appearance, protect your jawbone, and prevent premature wrinkling along the jawline.
- Provide a long-lasting beautiful smile that will rejuvenate your appearance and restore your dental wellbeing.
For many patients, it is no exaggeration to say that the improvements are life-changing. It is the difference between anxiety and happiness, between a lack of self-esteem and the confidence to smile.
The Full-Arch Restoration Procedure
Your first step is to schedule your consultation with our dental team in Jupiter. During the consultation, you will tour our state-of-the-art facilities, meet the team, and then we will go over your options. We use leading-edge 3D CT scan technology that creates a model of your oral anatomy that allows us to design your treatment plan with remarkable precision. The scans are quick and they produce a fraction of the radiation of traditional x-rays.
Next, we will place several dental implants along the arch of the jaw. The number depends on the volume of bone in the jaw and on other factors, but typically we place between 4-6 implants. These act as tooth roots, and perform many of the same functions. They integrate with the jawbone through an organic process known as osseointegration, during which bone tissue grows and wraps around the implant to hold it in place.
These dental implants are what holds the bridge, which comes next. Our bridges are made from zirconia, the strongest material available in restorative dentistry. Unlike acrylic options, our zirconia bridges are resistant to chipping and staining. You’ll enjoy your new, gorgeous smile for many years to come. Because the material is so strong, the crowns can be made a little bit thinner – and still be stronger and more durable than the competition –, which gives them the translucence of a natural tooth.
This is an amazing procedure because of how long-lasting and stunningly natural the results are. Come see for yourself, we are happy to show you case studies and we are excited to help you on your journey toward a new, higher quality of life.
