Full Mouth Dental Implants Procedure:
Decades of research and success stories shows this is the very best option to restore missing teeth. Maybe an ‘all-on-four’ or ‘all-on-six’ full mouth dental implants procedure is what you need if you are missing all your teeth in either the upper arch, lower arch, or both.
What is it?
A dental implant is a titanium screw which is totally bio-compatible with the body and replaces the root of a missing tooth. This particular treatment normally includes placing four or six dental implants in one arch, which is where we get the term full mouth dental implants from. These dental implants support a full bridge of teeth, meaning you can bite apples, chew steak and smile as you used to, living a completely normal life again with fixed, permanent teeth.
How much time does it take?
To proceed with full mouth dental implants, your first trip to Lima should be for seven to ten days. This is when all the diagnosis is done during an appointment of approximately 60 – 90 minutes. Once diagnosis is complete, a treatment plan will be recommended to you and treatment can begin. This involves the surgical stage and dental implant placement. Implants are placed while you are sedated so that you are very comfortable and sleepy. For the four or six implants to placed, you can expect this to take around 2 – 3 hours in total.
Healing normally takes 3 months. This means that the bone integrates with the dental implants and makes them strong enough to withstand biting pressures.
Your second trip to Lima is to restore the dental implants and place the teeth. This needs to be for a minimum period of three weeks to allow for the fabrication of your new teeth which includes impressions, tests, bite alignment and adjustments. There will normally be appointments every other day to advance step by step for this phase. Read more information here
Full mouth dental implants treatment is much more accessible in Lima than in north America. You can expect to pay around half the cost of what you would pay at a quality dental clinic at home. However, for us to give you an idea of costs we need to see at least a panoramic x-ray scan to evaluate your case with our dentist.
