Full-arch restoration is a life-changing, permanent alternative to removable dentures that can replace a full upper or lower arch of teeth at once. Using as few as four dental implants, full-arch restoration securely fixes a full set of new teeth in place. This tooth replacement option is more efficient and cost-effective than using multiple individual implants, but still offers the permanence, security, and other benefits of dental implants. In addition, the prosthesis is custom designed for your mouth and will look and function just like natural teeth.

Why choose Full-Arch Restoration?
Full-arch restoration replaces an entire upper or lower arch of teeth at once. It is a permanent, secure, and natural-looking solution. As little as four dental implant posts are placed strategically to create a stable foundation for the new replacement teeth.
There are several reasons why this dental implant-based surgery is often favored over other tooth replacement options:
- Less post-surgical discomfort, swelling, and healing time
- Permanent, non-removable replacement for multiple teeth
- A full arch of functional new teeth can be supported using as few as four implants
- Dental implants prevent bone loss and preserve your oral health
The innovative techniques we use to perform Full-Arch Restoration reduces healing time, so you can enjoy your new smile faster. In some cases, replacement teeth can be attached to the implants during the same appointment.
Full-Arch Restoration Procedures
The full-arch restoration treatment is usually a team effort between you, your oral surgeon, and your restorative dentist. Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with Dr. Bale, where you will discuss your restoration options, have 3D images of your mouth taken, and ask any questions you may have.
Dr. Bale will create a personalized treatment plan for you based on your 3D scans, your oral health condition, and your surgical and anesthesia preferences. You can expect a typical Full-Arch Restoration procedure at Lakeside Oral, Facial and Dental Implant Surgery to go as follows:
- After Dr. Bale administers your chosen anesthesia, he will strategically place four or more dental implant posts into the jawbone. These implants will be the permanent foundation for your new teeth. You may be able to receive your final denture right away, but in some cases, patients choose to have a temporary denture placed while their implant sites heal.
- During the healing period, your dentist will form your prosthesis/denture to look and function just like healthy, natural teeth. Once the entire process is complete, and the surgical sites have healed, you will be able to eat, speak, and smile with your new permanent teeth.
If you want a permanent replacement for all or many of your upper and/or lower teeth, Full-Arch Restoration may be the most efficient and cost-effective tooth replacement solution for you.
