Here’s how full arch dental implants could transform your smile

Are you tired of hiding your smile due to a full arch of missing teeth? The solution lies in the remarkable advancements of full arch dental implants – a comprehensive, long-lasting, and aesthetically pleasing option for those seeking a complete smile makeover. 


At Maria Cardenas DMD in Wellesley, MA, we're passionate about restoring more than just teeth; we're dedicated to revitalizing your confidence and transforming your oral health.


Understanding full arch dental implants

Full arch dental implants, also known as implant-fixed bridges or implant-supported dentures, provide a comprehensive solution for patients missing an entire arch of teeth. 


This state-of-the-art procedure involves strategically placing dental implants along the jawbone to support a customized bridge, effectively replacing an entire upper or lower set of teeth. 


The result is a stable, natural-looking smile that not only restores your appearance but also enhances your ability to chew and speak with confidence.


Beyond aesthetics 

Stability and comfort 

Unlike traditional dentures, implant-fixed bridges are securely anchored to dental implants, providing unparalleled stability. This eliminates concerns about slippage or discomfort, allowing you to enjoy meals and engage in social activities with confidence.

Preservation of jawbone health

Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing the bone loss commonly associated with missing teeth. This helps maintain the natural contours of your face and ensures long-term oral health.

Natural-looking appearance 

Implant-supported bridges are crafted to mimic the appearance of natural teeth, down to the finest details. The result is a seamless, lifelike smile that complements your facial features.

Improved oral function

Full-arch dental implants restore not only the aesthetics but also the functionality of your smile. You can enjoy a diverse and nutritious diet without the limitations often experienced with traditional dentures.

Enhanced speech

Implant-supported bridges remain securely in place, reducing the risk of speech impediments commonly associated with removable dentures. You can communicate naturally and confidently.


What to expect from your procedure

  • Comprehensive consultation. Our experienced team will conduct a thorough assessment of your oral health, discuss your goals, and formulate a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
  • Implant placement. Precision is key during the implant placement process. Our skilled team will strategically position the dental implants to maximize stability and ensure long-term success.
  • Temporary restoration. Whilst your implants integrate with the jawbone, we may provide a temporary restoration to maintain aesthetics and functionality. 
  • Customized bridge design. Working closely with skilled technicians, we craft a customized bridge that aligns with your natural teeth in color, shape, and size.
  • Final restoration. Once the implants have fully integrated, the final implant-fixed bridge is securely attached, unveiling your stunning, fully restored smile.

Maintaining your full arch dental implants with post-procedure care

Whilst full arch dental implants are designed for longevity and durability, proper care is essential to ensure their continued success. We always recommend that you maintain optimal oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and attending regular examinations at our Wellesley-based practice. 


Our team will provide guidance on maintaining your implant-supported bridge and answer any questions you may have about your post-procedure care.
