If you have failing, decayed or damaged teeth, these will need to be removed in order to replace them with dental implants. If you are looking for a full arch solution like Pro Arch or implant supported dentures, Dr. Lopez will need to extract any remaining teeth that might be blocking the new full arch prosthesis.
A key factor for successful implant placement is having the proper jaw bone volume to support the implant post. If you have lost bone volume due to tooth loss, disease, oral damage or other means, you may require bone grafting treatment to restore your jaw to levels that can support implant placement.
For each dental implant you need, the overall cost of your entire implant procedure will rise. For patients who are missing multiple teeth in a row, we can provide implant supported bridges that utilize just two implants to support multiple replacement teeth. For those missing an entire arch of teeth, we may only need to place two to six implants per arch to replace all your teeth!
You have multiple options when restoring your mouth. Those that choose implant supported dentures will find a difference in cost when compared to a more natural and permanent Pro Arch full arch dental implant solution. Discuss with Dr. Lopez to find out which option is better for your lifestyle and budget.
Having a healthy mouth and oral environment is key to successful implant placement and longevity. If you are affected by gum disease, we can cleanse the infection, restore lost bone, remove any failing teeth and restore your mouth to ideal health. Once you have healed and are healthy again, we can proceed with implant placement.
