Missing All Lower or Upper Arch of Teeth Santa Rosa
Full Mouth Dental Implants in Rohnert Park & Windsor
There are several options when considering replacement of a full arch of teeth, either your upper or lower teeth. Several implant-supported replacement options are available if you are missing all of your lower teeth.
A denture or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replaces natural teeth, and provides support for the cheeks and lips.
Bar Attachment Denture
Another option involves placing four to six implants, depending on your jaw size or shape, into your lower jaw. After healing is complete, the implants are connected with a custom-made support bar. Your denture will be made with special internal retention clips that attach onto the support bar, enabling the denture to snap firmly into place. This is called an “overdenture.” The advantage of this option is that it is much more stable than the first option and allows very little denture movement. Your denture is still removable for easy cleaning and maintenance.
