Full-mouth dental implants, also known as full arch dental implants or Teeth-in-a-Day, are designed to replace all the teeth in either the upper or lower jaw or both. They consist of four to six dental implants strategically placed in the jawbone, serving as sturdy anchors for prosthetic teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, which can be removable and sometimes uncomfortable, full-mouth dental implants provide a permanent, natural-looking solution to tooth loss and dental issues.

The journey begins with a thorough examination and consultation with Dr. Nguyen. Your oral health will be evaluated and treatment options will be discussed. From there, a personalized plan will be created. Your consultation is a great time to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have.
Detailed digital imaging and impressions will be taken to create a precise plan for your restoration and to aid in the implant placement procedure.
If necessary, you’ll undergo tooth extraction, and your jawbone will be prepared for implant placement. Dr. Nguyen will make small incisions into the jawbone through the gum tissue, where implants will be placed. Our Philadelphia oral surgeon provides various sedation dentistry options, so you can rest assured you’ll feel no pain during the surgery.
