Are you considering getting full mouth dental implants? We know that it is a huge step. We’re here to help you make an informed decision.

This article will outline the benefits and risks of getting full mouth dental implants. We’ll also discuss some important factors you must consider. Lastly, we’ll give tips on finding the right dentist for your full mouth dental implants.

Full Mouth Dental Implants: The Options Available for You

There are two main types of full mouth dental implant appliances: removable and fixed. The removable appliance is something you can remove yourself. In contrast, only a dentist can remove the fixed appliance.

Here are some full mouth dental implants options:

  1. Denture Implants or Snap-In Dentures
  2. Fixed Hybrid Bridge
  3. All on 4 Implants
  4. Fixed Zirconia Bridge

They all have their advantages and disadvantages. The best choice for you depends on your needs, overall health, and lifestyle. Your dentist will help you decide which one is best for you.

Benefits of Full Mouth Dental Implants

Dental implants have many benefits over traditional dentures, as discussed below.

#1. Improved Oral Health. Full mouth dental implants prevent bone loss by preserving the jaw bone. In contrast, using traditional dentures can cause bone resorption or loss over time.

#2. Improved speech. Full mouth dental implants are more stable than traditional dentures and help restore proper speech functions lost when you have missing teeth.

#3. Improved chewing capability. Dental implants also restore your bite force. You can enjoy a variety of food compared to having traditional dentures. Steak? Yes. Popcorn and nuts for the movies? Absolutely. Corn on the cob during a fair? Definitely.

#4. Improved aesthetics. Full mouth dental implants look and feel more natural than traditional dentures. They are a great cosmetic option to transform a smile with severely decayed, broken, or missing teeth into a perfect one.

#5. Improved self-confidence and quality of life. You do not need to worry about your teeth dislodging when you laugh, speak, or eat. As a result, you can interact more confidently during parties, conventions, functions, and business meetings.

Full Mouth Dental Implants: How It’s Done and What You Need to Do

Let’s discuss the process and what you must do when getting full mouth dental implants.

#1. Your initial consultation. Are you a good candidate for a full set of dental implants? You will undergo specific evaluations and tests, like x-rays, CT scans, and blood work, to determine this.

Your implant dentist will screen you for the following:

  • good overall health and oral health
  • enough bone in your jaw to support the implants
  • healthy gums without any periodontal disease

Your dentist will make a treatment plan based on these assessments. They will also give you instructions on how to prepare for implant placement.

#2. Placement of implants. This step can vary from patient to patient. Your remaining teeth will need to be removed (if you have any left). You might also need bone grafting if your jaw doesn’t have enough bone to support implants. Or, if you have enough bone, your dentist can immediately place the implants.

NOTE: If you need to undergo bone grafting, you may have to wait for a few months before the implants can be placed by your dentist.

#3. Healing of implants. This can take three to six months. You get a temporary prosthesis on top of your implants during this time. Your dentist will provide instructions for proper implant healing.

#4. Attachment of the final restoration. These restorations are custom-made for your mouth to provide a functional and aesthetically pleasing result.

Risks of Full Mouth Dental Implants

It is also good to remember that full sets of dental implants are not for everyone. There are also certain risks and factors that you need to consider.

#1. Surgical Risks. Like any surgery, getting a full set of dental implants carries some surgical risks. These risks are extremely uncommon, but it is good to be aware of them.

  • Infection: Poor oral hygiene can cause infections around the implants.
  • Implant failure: In some cases, the implants may not properly fuse with the jawbone, leading to implant failure.

    TIP: Follow your dentist’s postoperative instructions to avoid getting your implants infected and failing by maintaining good oral hygiene.

  • Bleeding around the implants: This can happen when you’re on blood-thinning medications.

    TIP: Inform your dentist if you are on blood-thinning medications. Your dentist may speak to your physician to determine if any modifications are needed during the implant process.

  • Nerve damage: Drilling into the jawbone can cause temporary or permanent damage to nearby nerves.
  • Sinus problems: Implants placed in the upper jaw may protrude into the sinuses and cause issues.

    TIP: Having a reputable dentist to place your implants will minimize or prevent these risks. Dayo Dental only works with dentists experienced in full mouth dental implants.

  • Pain and discomfort: Pain and discomfort are common after surgery. Your dentist will give you prescriptions to help you with the pain.

    TIP: Going to Mexico for dental implants? Get all your prescriptions in Mexico. The cost of medicine there is more affordable than in your hometown.

  • Allergic reactions: Some patients may be allergic to the materials used in the implants, like titanium. These are very rare cases.

    TIP: Mention your concern about titanium allergy to your dentist and discuss it with them. Your dentist can refer you for allergy testing. They can also suggest other materials to use for the implants.

#2. Proper Maintenance and Care: Implants require proper care and maintenance, just like your natural teeth. This prevents gum diseases and implant failure. To take care of your implants, you must:

  • Brush and floss consistently: Brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss regularly.
  • Use antibacterial mouthwash: This reduces the risk of infection around the implants. Remember, this is not a substitute for brushing and flossing.
  • Visit your dentist regularly: Schedule a visit at least once every six months to monitor your oral health.
  • Follow postoperative instructions provided by your implant dentist: This will help the implants heal and fuse better with your jawbone. After that, you can enjoy whatever food you desire.

  • Quit smoking: This promotes healing and prevents infection.
  • Wear a night guard: This protects the implants against damage, especially if you grind your teeth at night.

These maintenance and care tips will ensure the long-term success of your full mouth dental implants.

Full Mouth Dental Implants: Choosing the Right Dentist

Choosing the right dentist ensures your safety and guarantees successful results. These are the things you need to consider when choosing your dentist.

#1. Their qualifications and credentials: Not all dentists are qualified to install a full set of dental implants. Find a dentist who knows what they’re doing and has the right education, training, and credentials.

Skilled and experienced dentists will place your implants correctly. They’ll also give you the best aftercare advice to ensure a successful healing process.

#2. Their experience and expertise: Ask how many implants they have done. Ask how many years they have been placing dental implants. This will tell you how well they know the procedure.

You can also check the written and video reviews given by previous patients.

TIP: Did you know? Dentists in Dayo Dental Network have over 15 years of experience in their field. One of our trusted partners in Los Algodones, Dr. Rubio, has placed over 10,000 dental implants during his 30 years of practice.

#3. Their honesty and transparency: Your dentist should be upfront and honest with you regarding costs and potential complications.

A good dentist will take the time to explain everything and answer any questions you have. They should also present different treatment options that work for you.

TIP: You don’t have to worry about finding a reputable dentist in Mexico. We’ve already handpicked only the best and most respected specialists who meet our strict qualification guidelines. These include years of experience, advanced training, and a proven track record of successful treatments.
