Full-Arch Restoration Procedure at Keene Dentistry & Implants
At Keene Dentistry & Implants we perform a full-arch restoration procedure in just one surgical appointment. Patients are first required to visit the oral surgeon for a consultation where the surgeon will examine the mouth and teeth of the patient as well as have the patient undergo a health history and take any necessary dental x-rays or scans. Having determined and tailored a treatment plan that best suits the patient; the patient is sent home with information regarding the potential benefits and drawbacks of a full-arch restoration.
During the day of surgery, patients are administered the type of anesthesia previously discussed with their oral surgeon dependent on their condition. Subsequently, the surgeon will remove any remaining teeth within the jaw before placing the four dental implants into the jaw. Patients who also require tooth extractions can often have their teeth extracted the same day of a full-arch restoration. After the placement of the implants, the oral surgeon will stitch up the gums and attach temporary dentures allowing the patient to utilize their new teeth as soon as possible. Following this, over the course of a few months, the surgical site will be healed and the implants will integrate into the jaw, allowing the dentist to attach a permanent denture to the implants. We offer patients a chance to enjoy their new smile, and teeth as soon as they leave our dental practice.
