What Are Full-Mouth Dental Implants?

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.

Benefits of Full-Mouth Dental Implants

There are various benefits to full-mouth dental implants, including: 

  • Quick Results: Thanks to the load-bearing capabilities of all-on-four implants, a temporary restoration can be placed on the same day as your implants. This means you won’t have to go weeks or months without a complete smile. 
  • Restored Functionality: Full-mouth implants function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: They provide a natural and attractive appearance, boosting your self-esteem and overall quality of life.
  • Long-Term Solution: With proper care, full-mouth dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective investment.
  • Preserve Jawbone: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss, which is a common issue with missing teeth and denture wear.
  • Improved Oral Health: They’re easy to maintain and don’t require special cleaning, promoting better oral hygiene.
  • No Slippage or Discomfort: Unlike removable dentures, implants stay firmly in place, eliminating discomfort and embarrassment.
  • Affordable Smile Restoration: Replacing full arches of teeth with full-mouth implants is much more affordable than replacing every tooth with a singular implant.

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.

Preparation and Implant Placement

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. 

Dental implants will be surgically placed into the jawbone. From there, we’ll place your temporary restoration as soon as the implants are successfully installed.


Over several months, the dental implants will fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, creating a stable foundation. The osseointegration process will take anywhere from three to six months

Placing Your Permanent Restoration

When you return to Philadelphia Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we’ll remove your temporary full arch restoration, and Dr. Nguyen will place your permanent one. Dr. Nguyen will ensure that your new smile looks and functions perfectly, making any necessary adjustments.

Aftercare Tips for Full-Mouth Dental Implants

After your full-mouth implant procedure, you’ll want to do the following:

  1. Maintain Good Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss regularly to keep your implants and surrounding gums healthy.
  2. Regular Dental Check-Ups: Schedule routine follow-up appointments with our Philadelphia oral surgeon so she can monitor the condition of your implants.
  3. Avoid Hard Foods: Be cautious when eating hard or sticky foods to prevent damage to your prosthetic teeth.
  4. Quit Smoking: Smoking can hinder the healing process and increase the risk of implant failure, so consider quitting.
  5. Use a Soft Toothbrush: Opt for a soft-bristle toothbrush to prevent abrasion of your prosthetic teeth.
  6. Limit Alcohol and Caffeine: Excessive consumption of alcohol and caffeine can affect the longevity of your implants.
  7. Protect Your Mouth: If you engage in contact sports, wear a mouthguard to protect your new smile.
  8. Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water promotes overall oral health and helps prevent dry mouth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes, chronic conditions may prevent patients from getting full-mouth implants. Proper treatment of these conditions, such as gum disease, may be necessary before implants can be installed. More severe conditions, such as auto-immune diseases, may require patients to seek other tooth restoration alternatives.  
The process of having your full-mouth implants installed shouldn’t be painful. Dentists and oral surgeons utilize local anesthetic as needed to keep you relaxed and comfortable. Some dentists and oral surgeons also provide sedation dentistry options to combat dental anxiety and provide additional pain relief. Afterwards, some minor discomfort is normal, but should be easily remedied with over-the-counter pain medication until it goes away on its own.  
With proper care, full-mouth implants can last 25 years to a lifetime. However, the restoration itself may need to be replaced every ten years or so due to normal wear and tear. Your dentist or oral surgeon can give you a more accurate time frame on the longevity of your implants as well as tips on how to maintain them.
The exact cost of your full-mouth implants will depend on numerous factors including how many arches of teeth need to be replaced, the materials used, and your insurance. Contact your insurance provider beforehand to learn which costs they will or won’t cover. Your dentist may also offer in-office financing options to help lower costs.
