Full-Arch Restoration in Greenville, SC, and Charlotte, NC

Complete Solution for Missing Teeth

Full-arch restoration is ideal for patients with many missing or failing teeth. This life-changing procedure involves extracting the remaining teeth in one or both dental arches and placing as few as four dental implant posts. Your surgeon will fix a permanent prosthesis to the posts, resulting in a complete and fully functional restoration.

The Carolinas Center for Dental Implants team consists of skilled prosthodontists and oral surgeons who work together seamlessly to help you achieve a better smile. Every patient receives a custom treatment plan, and our team at our Verdae and Blakeney offices use only the most advanced techniques and technology available today to produce optimal results.

Benefits of Full-Arch Restoration

When you choose to restore your smile completely through full-arch restoration, you get to experience the same health benefits as dental implants while achieving a brand new smile.

  • Dental implant posts fuse to the jaw bone, which prevents the jaw from deteriorating over time. Removable dentures and bridges do not protect jaw bone health in this way.
  • This procedure is completed in a single day, allowing you to leave our office with a new smile.
  • Eat and speak with confidence. There are no moving parts and your fixed prosthesis remains in your mouth at all times, even while eating.
  • The prosthesis is designed to be a long-term solution and can last a lifetime with proper care.

The Full-Arch Restoration Procedure

Carolinas Center for Dental Implants is equipped with state-of-the-art 3D imaging technology. This allows our surgeons to view detailed digital scans of your mouth and face to create a highly accurate and effective treatment plan with no surprises. Oral surgeons are trained to administer all forms of anesthesia and sedation. Many patients choose IV sedation for full-arch restoration, but we will help you choose the right option for your procedure.

You will attend a consultation appointment first, where our prosthodontists and oral surgeons will work together to design your restorative treatment plan. Prosthodontists specialize in tooth replacement and will play a key role in creating your permanent prosthesis.

During the procedure, your oral surgeon will extract any remaining teeth in the dental arch. Then, they will insert as few as four dental implant posts and secure a temporary prosthesis in place. Over time, the posts will fuse to your jaw bone, and the permanent prosthesis will be placed at this time.

Types of Anesthesia

There are three main choices for anesthesia:

Why Should I Fix Missing Teeth?

Untreated tooth loss or decay can lead to many oral health issues. Without a root or dental implant post to stimulate the jaw bone, the bone will deteriorate over time in the areas where teeth are missing. Serious bone loss may require costly and complex bone repair surgery in the future.

Removable dentures and bridges sit on top of the bony ridge in the mouth and do not stimulate the jaw. They must also be replaced every few years, and many patients find their maintenance cumbersome. Fixed dentures through full-arch restoration remain a permanent part of your smile and do not need to be removed during eating or brushing. When you restore your smile using dental implants, you are taking positive steps toward restoring and protecting your oral health.
