Tooth loss is commonplace among adults, especially as we age. Rather than living with the discomfort and the hassle of dentures, full mouth reconstruction is a more natural alternative and greatly improves your oral health long-term. Full arch replacement is a permanent solution that produces a beautiful smile and allows you to eat the foods you love again – often in no time at all. So why wait any longer to regain your smile and self-confidence?
Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With implants, you can rediscover the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life. Implants are expected to last for a lifetime, don’t decay and won’t affect your surrounding teeth.

Dental Implants are a transformational alternative to dentures, which can be downright uncomfortable. The implants themselves are small screws produced from titanium that serve a purpose similar to the roots of natural teeth. They are fused to the jawbone and support a full arch replacement, helping them perform the same as our natural teeth. A full arch replacement is as close to a permanent solution as you will get to your natural teeth, and your new teeth do not ever cavities 🙂
A full arch replacement is far more than a cosmetic solution. The implant itself (the invisible screw-like structure below the gum line) provides the foundation or support for a dental crown that sits on top of the implant and is the visible portion of the tooth.
The implant replaces the root structure (i.e., support) for the tooth, providing a stable base and preventing the prosthesis from sliding or moving like dentures.
Once placed, replacement teeth are difficult to distinguish from your natural teeth. Dr. Bhakta creates the color, the shape, and the contour of the new teeth in a way that matches your natural teeth. Our patients tell us they feel as if they are getting back their original smile.
If you are missing teeth or you are wearing dentures, you are actively experiencing bone loss where the bone literally breaks down, and the material is reabsorbed back into the body. Significant bone loss can lead to shrinkage of the contours of the jawbone, which results in wrinkled lips, and sunken mouth and chin. it’s a phenomena that makes a person look very old. Maintaining your natural bone is one of the most significant advantages of full arch replacement. This procedure stimulates bone growth, and almost entirely stops bone loss.
Wearing an upper denture prevents you from really tasting food because the roof of your mouth is covered. With total mouth reconstruction, we do not need to cover the roof of your mouth with a denture, so you can truly enjoy the taste of your favorite foods again. In addition, because the implant replaces the entire tooth and the tooth root, a full arch replacement functions more like your natural teeth, with a strong, stable foundation that allows comfortable biting and chewing. Fresh vegetables, corn, fruits, and even steak are back on the menu.
The implant screw itself won’t decay and is designed to last for the rest of your life, assuming you receive regular dental check-ups every 6 months.
While the exact material used will affect the overall life expectancy of crowns (the piece that sits atop the implant), patients can often enjoy them for a lifetime.
The realistic-looking artificial tooth. The crown is placed once your jawbone from the implant placement and is strong enough to support the use of the new tooth. It’s usually made of zirconium or porcelain.
