Comparing Your Treatment Options
Removable dentures no longer need to be your only solution to a failing dentition or complete tooth loss. Drs. Laun and Gustave specialize in numerous full mouth dental implant treatments, including implant supported overdentures, fixed hybrid prostheses, and the Atlantis® Conus Concept developed by Dentsply Sirona. All these solutions have their own benefits, drawbacks, and price points, so it’s important that we understand your oral health condition and your expectations for treatment. Rest assured, we have your best interests in mind and create treatment plans that best reflect your unique situation, needs, and goals.
Your full arch treatment process begins with a personalized consultation with our oral surgeons. This treatment requires an incredible amount of detail and precision to produce the desired results as well as provide lasting functional, aesthetic, and health benefits. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your expectations for treatment, evaluate your oral health needs, and complete a CBCT scan and take digital impressions. This information will help us create treatment plans that fit your unique needs, smile goals, and budget. Even if you have extensive bone loss or a compromising medical condition, our oral surgeons have the expertise to provide custom solutions that improve your quality of life.
Using the CBCT scan, impressions, and the proven precision of X-Guide® from X-Nav Technologies, we’ll have custom-fabricated surgical guides made that will assist us during your surgery. X-Guide guided surgery is also interactive, giving us turn-by-turn guidance during surgery to ensure your dental implants are placed in the pre-determined locations in your bone to maximize their primary stability and long-term function. We’ll provide custom sedation or anesthesia for this procedure, so you can remain comfortable and pain-free throughout.
Once your dental implants are secure in your jaw, we’ll use the sophisticated Osstell® ISQ machine to measure the primary stability of each implant. Significantly more precise than an x-ray, this machine ensures that we’re not loading a prosthesis before the dental implants are safely stabilized in the jaw. However, in virtually all cases, we achieve a high ISQ value and can attach a temporary prosthesis the day of your surgery!
Healing after your surgery will take at least three months, during which time the bone will fuse around the dental implants to keep them secure. You’ll experience normal function and aesthetics with your temporary in place during this phase. Once you’ve fully recovered, you’ll return to your restorative dentist’s office to have your final restoration designed and fabricated. Regardless of which full arch solution you choose, this restoration will significantly increase your ability to bite and chew foods, look and feel completely natural, and give your confidence and health a boost! Enjoy the lasting benefits of your full mouth dental implants for years to come!
