At Smart Arches Dental Jacksonville, Dr. Brian Young and Dr. Camden Smith are dedicated to guiding patients through each step of the process. This article provides a detailed overview of the full mouth implant journey, from the initial consultation to the final results.

Initial Consultation

The first step in the full mouth implant journey is the initial consultation. During this visit, Dr. Brian Young or Dr. Camden Smith will:

  • Conduct a comprehensive oral examination
  • Take X-rays and CT scans to assess bone density and oral health
  • Discuss your dental history and goals
  • Develop a personalized treatment plan

Treatment Planning

Based on the findings from the initial consultation, a detailed treatment plan is created. This plan includes:

  • Number of Implants Needed: Typically, 4 to 6 implants per arch are recommended, depending on the patient’s bone density and oral health.
  • Type of Prosthetics: The plan outlines whether a fixed bridge or removable overdenture will be used.
  • Timeline: A comprehensive timeline from implant placement to final prosthetic attachment is provided, ensuring patients know what to expect at each stage.

Implant Placement

The next step is the surgical placement of the implants. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia or sedation to ensure patient comfort. Here’s a breakdown of the process:

  1. Preparation: The patient’s mouth is prepared by cleaning the surgical sites and applying a local anesthetic.
  2. Implant Insertion: Titanium posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone at precise locations to maximize support and stability.
  3. Temporary Prosthesis: A temporary set of teeth is placed on the implants to maintain aesthetics and functionality during the healing process.

Healing and Osseointegration

After the implants are placed, the healing process begins. This stage, known as osseointegration, involves the fusion of the implants with the jawbone. It typically takes 3 to 6 months and is crucial for the stability of the final prosthetics. During this time:

  • Regular Check-ups: Patients have regular check-ups to monitor the healing process and address any concerns.
  • Dietary Adjustments: A soft diet is recommended to avoid putting excessive pressure on the implants.
  • Oral Hygiene: Maintaining excellent oral hygiene is essential to prevent infection and ensure successful healing.

Final Prosthesis Placement

Once osseointegration is complete, the final prosthesis is designed and attached. This involves:

  1. Impressions: Detailed impressions of the mouth are taken to create custom prosthetic teeth that match the patient’s natural teeth in color, shape, and size.
  2. Attachment: The final prosthetic teeth are securely attached to the implants, providing a permanent solution that looks and feels natural.
  3. Adjustment and Finalization: Any necessary adjustments are made to ensure a perfect fit and optimal comfort.

Benefits of Full Mouth Implants

Full mouth dental implants offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Restored Functionality: Patients can chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
  • Natural Aesthetics: The prosthetic teeth are designed to look and feel like natural teeth.
  • Bone Preservation: Implants help maintain jawbone density, preventing the bone loss that occurs with missing teeth.
  • Long-Term Solution: With proper care, full mouth implants can last a lifetime.
  • Enhanced Comfort: Unlike dentures, implants are securely anchored in the jawbone, providing a stable and comfortable fit.
