It’s not uncommon for a person to have lost most of their teeth due to issues like old age, tooth decay, birth complications, and other various reasons. Luckily, Dr. Aaron Quitmeyer at Shenandoah Oral and Facial Surgery offers multiple full arch dental solutions to correct those issues.
The full-arch options that Dr. Quitmeyer offers utilize dental implants for a longer-lasting solution. Allowing you to enjoy your everyday life with renewed confidence and vigor. For a better understanding of your treatment options, listed below are descriptions of the different implant assisted full arch solutions you can expect to choose from.
TeethXpress® is a BioHorizons® full arch prosthetic that uses four to six dental implants to secure itself to your lower or upper jaw. This type of solution is similar to an All-on-four® treatment and is great for patients that are looking for the fastest replacement option possible since the operation can take place in as little as a day. What sets this treatment apart from other replacement options is that the dental implants are available in different shapes and sizes for better adaption in a patient’s jawbone regardless of its volume and density.
Implant-Supported Dentures is the other option Dr. Quitmeyer offers, for those who want a more traditional approach. These are also set using two to four dental implants that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Implant-Supported Dentures are not fixed within the mouth and should be removed for daily cleaning and like its traditional counterpart also removed before you go to sleep. Unlike a TeethXpress® treatment, these are usually set within two operational visits.
