Tooth loss hurts both the health and esthetics of your smile. Patients with multiple missing teeth can experience difficulty eating and may be hesitant to smile and laugh. With full mouth dental implants, you can receive either implant-supported dental bridges or even implant-supported dentures, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence and ease.

2. True. By placing multiple dental implant posts, a dentist can attach a number of different dental prosthetics, including dental bridges, partial dentures, and even a full set of dentures.
3. True. Each dental prosthetic will be designed based on impression taken of your smile. Using lifelike dental materials, an expert will fabricate the prosthetics. Once in place, your full mouth dental implants will look and function naturally.
