Many people need to have tooth extractions in their lifetime. When people have tooth extractions, and have other missing teeth, they should replace those teeth with full mouth dental implants in Sandwich, MA. Full mouth dental implants give patients a full arch, or arches, of new teeth so they can go back to living a normal life. Continue reading to learn why extracted teeth should be replaced by restorative full mouth dental implants.
How Are My Extracted Teeth Replaced By Full Mouth Dental Implants?
Teeth that are too damaged or infected to be saved will typically need to be extracted. After teeth are professionally extracted, the oral surgeon can replace those teeth with full mouth dental implants. If patients have jawbone density loss in the area of their tooth extraction, they can have a bone grafting procedure first. With a bone grafting procedure, patients will have enough jawbone density to support their full mouth dental implants.
To stop jawbone loss before it starts in the areas of extracted teeth, full mouth dental implants can be placed into the jawbone after the sites of the extracted teeth have healed. During a full mouth dental implant procedure in Sandwich, MA, four or more dental implant posts are strategically and precisely placed in the patient’s jawbone. The dental implant posts are designed to function like natural tooth roots.
After the dental implant posts have fused with the patient’s jawbone, it stimulates the jawbone so that it stays healthy and dense. For those who qualify, a temporary prosthesis can be placed on the dental implants in the same surgical procedure, so they get a new smile in one day.
Once the final prosthesis is ready and made, the patient can go to a trusted dentist to get the temporary prosthesis replaced with a final prosthesis. The final prosthesis gives the patient a restored and beautiful new smile.
