Full mouth implants in Katy, TX are an option for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth and are seeking to reconstruct their entire mouth for restored function and appearance. Missing teeth can lead to serious dental problems and can significantly inhibit a patient’s ability to eat and speak. Dr. Joseph W. Holland III DDS, MSD provides Full-mouth restoration implant options in Katy, TX. These options include dentures or bridges, providing patients with a restored smile.
During the full mouth restoration procedure, several implants are secured into the jawbone to support the replacement structures. Only a few implants are needed, which reduces the severity and length of the procedure. This procedure may be performed on the upper mouth, lower mouth, or the entire mouth. The dentist will determine the ideal placement for each individual patient.
Dental implants are placed during a series of appointments over several months. During the first procedure, the titanium anchors or implants are placed into the jaw.Over the next three to six months, the anchors will heal and fuse to the bone, a period known as osseointegration. Small posts are attached to the implant to help provide stability for the replacement tooth. After the anchors heal, the patient is fitted for replacements, which can be installed during the next appointment. Implant surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under local or general anesthesia.
Depending on each patient’s individual case, the entire full mouth restoration process requires multiple office visits and can take up to a year to complete.
