Missing a significant number of teeth can have a real impact on your daily life. Having to watch what you eat and being self conscious of gaps or dentures, are the most common reasons that people seek out alternatives.
There are numerous options available including dentures and individual implants, however a full dental arch restoration, sometimes known as All-On-4 or Teeth in a Day, is fast becoming the most popular option with patients. It is the least invasive choice for those requiring a completely new set of teeth, restoring a full smile with just four to six implants, with a bridge joining the implants to create a natural, long-lasting, finish. This treatment can be performed in just a day and is the most cost effective option to replace numerous missing or failing teeth.
Chris Chisholm, implantologist at SmilePlus Dental Care has completed over 60 cases, said, “A full arch restoration is ideal for those who have previously had dentures, or are missing numerous teeth. It can have such a positive impact on the patient’s lifestyle, both cosmetically, having a smile they want to show off, as well as practically, no longer having issues with certain food types. It is very rewarding when patients come back for a check up and share all the joy that their new implants have brought them.
“It’s a fairly straightforward procedure which can be performed in a day meaning you don’t have to go away with missing teeth. A patient will walk in with a denture and leave with a set of permanent teeth with minimal healing time.”
Patient Karen Moffat commented, “I no longer hide my smile, instead I can show it off which I did recently at my daughter’s wedding! It was a very straightforward procedure and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending a full dental arch restoration. I now pick what I want from the menu, not thinking about whether I’ll struggle to chew it and don’t have the daily hassle of dentures. My smile has never looked so good!”
