Information on treatment and surgeryFull Mouth Implant Surgery
There is a total of 28 teeth, 14 on the upper and 14 on the lower arch. When a patient has lost multiple teeth, or has been wearing dentures for a long time, a full mouth implant may be desired but there may be insufficient bone and/or gums.
Full mouth implants refer to the placement of several implants to restore function and aesthetics when the entire part or row of teeth are missing. It is highly sophisticated treatment which requires advanced anatomical knowledge of the alveolar bone and mandible. Extensive experience is also critical in ensuring precision on shape and position of teeth for an optimal occlusion.
Full mouth implants are considered an extensive treatment, where 14-20 implants must be placed to create durable and natural teeth for restoration. Hence, specialist knowledge and experience in oral/maxillofacial surgery and prosthodontics is necessary.
Cases that require Full Mouth Implant Surgery:
- Those who have severe side-effects of false teeth/dentures
- Those who have lost all their teeth due to aging
- Those who have lost all their teeth due to an accident
- Those with naturally weak teeth
3 Types of Full Mouth Implants:
