This option provides a durable, natural-looking restoration that is fixed in place and non-removable. Patients benefit from the stability and aesthetics of porcelain, achieving a seamless, permanent solution for their dental needs. Recognizing that each patient presents with unique anatomical and dental circumstances, they prioritize achieving the most lifelike and functional restoration possible.

Dr. Tedders prefers to overengineer cases to assist in long-term success. During the foundational surgical phase, they utilize a meticulous approach, opting for a minimum of 5 mandibular (lower) and 6 maxillary (upper) implants. This strategic placement of implants provides a stable foundation for the final prosthetic restoration, optimizing both function and aesthetics.

What Are The Benefits Of Full Arch Implants?

There are many benefits to full arch dental implants. Benefits of a dental implant include:

Returning to normal form and function
As teeth deteriorate over time, both the patient and the teeth themselves often adapt, leading to compensatory mechanisms in function, such as chewing food and speech. This gradual breakdown can significantly impact the patient's ability to function normally, affecting not only their oral health but also their overall well-being.
Full-arch dental implant reconstruction offers a transformative solution by restoring both the form and function of the oral cavity. By replacing missing or compromised teeth with implant-supported prosthetics, Dr. Tedders restores the patient's ability to chew food comfortably and speak clearly.

Improved appearance
In addition to the physical restoration of oral function, full-arch reconstruction often brings about profound improvements in overall aesthetics and psychosocial well-being. Many patients who require extensive dental reconstruction may also experience a degree of self-consciousness or insecurity about their smile.
Patients requiring full-arch reconstruction may exhibit behaviors such as guarding or concealing their smile, whether by pursing their lips, covering their mouth while speaking, smiling, or laughing, or resorting to growing out facial hair as a means of concealment.
By addressing these concerns through comprehensive dental implantology, Dr. Tedders not only restores oral function but also enhances the patient's confidence and quality of life.

When considering reconstructive options for full-arch implants, patients have a range of choices, each offering unique benefits and considerations.

The three primary types of prosthesis are:

  • Full Arch Fixed Porcelain: (non-removable)
  • Hybrid Restoration: (non-removable)
  • Implant Overdenture: (Removable implant assisted/retained)

Dr. Tedders works closely with each patient to evaluate their oral health, lifestyle, and treatment goals, recommending the most suitable reconstructive option based on their unique circumstances. Through personalized care and attention to detail, he ensures that patients achieve optimal outcomes and long-term satisfaction with their full-arch implant reconstruction.
