If you have lost virtually all your teeth and/or wear dentures, then full mouth dental implants or a full arch implant bridge could be a great option to provide you with a set of new teeth.
An increase in confidence and the foods you can eat
Dentures are one of the most popular and traditional teeth replacement options if you have no teeth on your upper or lower jaw. The problem with dentures is that they limit the foods you can comfortably eat such as apples, steak and crusty bread. Many denture wearers feel embarrassed by them and avoid certain social occasions.
Denture wearers can also suffer from facial disfiguration due to multiple tooth loss as the bone beneath the missing teeth shrinks. Full mouth dental implants or a full arch implant bridge are perfect solutions to help you prevent facial distortion and regain your confidence, pride and appetite, without having to worry about what foods to eat.
A permanent solid solution to denture limitations
Unlike traditional dentures, these solutions are permanent and securely fixed onto implant posts which are strong and made from titanium. The implant posts are fixed into the jawbone and integrate with your body tissue like natural teeth. The premium solution for replacing all the teeth on your top and bottom jaw is a full arch implant bridge. It is fitted using between four and eight implants.

Dental Implants are the only reliable, permanent solution for replacing missing teeth.
Restore the clarity of your speech
The flow of air into your mouth affects your ability to speak, so any tooth loss or gaps in your smile can affect your pronunciation which can lower your confidence and self-esteem. Dental implants feel and work exactly like the missing teeth they replace therefore helping to improve your speech and pronunciation.
Eat what you like: nuts, apples, steak...
If you’ve suffered tooth loss or wear dentures, then it can affect your ability to chew properly and can alter your diet and nutrition as well as undermine your confidence. It may be difficult to eat certain hard foods such as apples, crusty bread and steak. Having dental implants is exactly like having your teeth back, meaning that you need not worry again about what types of food you eat.
Prevent bone loss and jaw bone shrinkage
When a tooth is lost the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink and can become brittle through lack of use. The deterioration of the jaw along with weaker cheek muscles will cause the shape of your face to change. Dental implants can help prevent bone loss and jawbone shrinkage. The longer the tooth is missing the more likely it is that you may need a bone graft to ensure there is enough jawbone for the dental implant to be fixed into.
