Home / Full Mouth Reconstruction
If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them. Full mouth reconstruction replaces both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots. OC Dental Implants is one of the trusted full mouth reconstruction dentists in Orange County providing affordable implant-supported full bridges or full dentures.
Full mouth reconstruction provides several advantages over other teeth replacement options.
With conventional dentures, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth roots begins to resorb (deteriorate). Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. In the long term, implants can be more esthetic and easier to maintain than conventional dentures. The loss of bone that accompanies conventional dentures leads to recession of the jawbone and a collapsed, unattractive smile. Conventional dentures make it difficult to eat certain foods.

First, implants, which look like screws or cylinders, are placed into your jaw. Then, over the next two to six months, the implants and the bone are allowed to bond together to form anchors for your artificial teeth. During this time, a temporary teeth replacement option can be worn over the implant sites.
Often, a second step of the procedure is necessary to uncover the implants and attach extensions. These temporary healing caps, along with various connecting devices that allow multiple crowns to attach to the implants, complete the foundation on which your new teeth will be placed. Your gums will be allowed to heal for a couple of weeks following this procedure.
Depending upon the number of implants placed, the connecting device that will hold your new teeth can be tightened down on the implant, or it may be a clipped to a bar or a round ball anchor to which a denture snaps on and off. Finally, full bridges or full dentures will be created for you and attached to small metal posts, called abutments, or the connecting device.
After a short time, you will experience restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak. Every case is different, and some of these steps can be combined when conditions permit. We will work with you to determine the best treatment plan.
