Full Mouth Dental Implants Huntington Beach
Losing all your teeth can have a profound effect on your health and quality of life. You may be less able to eat a balanced diet, you may be more vulnerable to dental health problems and your general health may be at risk. One study found that tooth loss could lead to premature aging, reduced self-image and self-confidence, and a decreased ability to socialize or build relationships. Our Huntington Beach full mouth dental implants provider can help.
Dental implants can transform a toothless smile into a bright, beautiful smile full of natural-looking teeth. The process can take a few months, but the results can last a lifetime. Our expert in full mouth dental implants in Huntington Beach may recommend full mouth dental implants if you are missing all the teeth in both arches. Full mouth implants fit into the jawbone just like the roots of your teeth did, and they can be used to support dentures or other restorations. This strong, stable base eliminates the clicking, slipping and irritating movements of traditional dentures.

The planning stages are among the most important part of your treatment. During this stage, our Huntington Beach full mouth dental implants provider will review your dental and medical history, evaluate your gums and bone tissue, take 3D images and dental X-rays, create a model, and design your new smile. You will play an active role throughout this process to get a smile that looks and feels just right for you.
Once the planning stage is complete, your implants will be placed during a surgical procedure. You will have a temporary bridge or denture placed to give you an immediate smile, but the final restorations will not be secured into position until the implants have fused with the jawbone, a process that can take from four to six months.
The final restorations will look and feel just like your own teeth, and they will also function just like natural teeth. You will be able to eat normally, and you will brush and floss them just like you brushed and flossed your natural teeth.
