Do You Need a Full Arch Replacement?
Award-Winning Implant Dentistry in San Diego, CA
People elect to get full arch replacements for a variety of reasons. People
usually decide to get
dental implants in order to improve their appearance. When people are missing all of their
teeth, they tend to look older and their faces can have a "hollow"
appearance. Full arch replacements produce dramatic results; they can
make you look younger and fill out your features.
While there are many reasons for getting dental implants, some of them include:
- Loss of teeth, whether from decay, disease or injury
- To improve appearance and restore your smile
- Fill out your face (without teeth, facial muscles can sag)
- To improve your ability to eat and speak normally
When all of a person's teeth are missing or they need to be replaced,
a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution.
Before dental implants were introduced, there was no fixed solution available
for people who had lost all of their teeth. Today's modern implant
dentistry makes it possible for you to get a permanent, stable and aesthetic solution.
