What are Full-Arch Dental Implants?
Full-arch dental implants are the modern answer to traditional dentures. These dental implants are strong and secure and won't slip out of place, unlike traditional dentures that require a messy adhesive, cause sore spots, and slip around throughout the day changing speech patterns and making it difficult to eat. Because of the robustness of these dental appliances, full-arch dental implant treatments may use anywhere from 4 – 6 implants into each arch of your jaw for a partial or complete implant restoration. At Patrick V. Nicosia D.D.S., M.S., Inc., our dental experts have extensive training and knowledge to help restore the health, beauty, and functionality of teeth through full-arch dental implants.
Am I A Good Candidate for Full-Arch Dental Implants?
Determining if you're a good candidate for full-arch dental implants involves assessing your oral health condition, including bone density and overall health. Ideal candidates have sufficient bone to support the implants, are free from conditions that impair healing, and are looking for a long-term solution for tooth loss. This innovative dental solution offers improved oral function, aesthetics, and can significantly enhance quality of life. For a personalized assessment, it's best to consult with Dr. Nicosia at Patrick V. Nicosia D.D.S., M.S., Inc. so he can evaluate your specific needs and goals.
What to Expect from Full-Arch Dental Implants
If you want secure teeth and the appearance of natural teeth, full-arch dental implants are the answer. Dr. Nicosia will provide you with the best treatment protocol based on bone quality, bone quantity, goals, and lifestyle. Dr. Nicosia uses the X-Guide® Dynamic 3D Navigation system to make the safest and most precise placement as pre-planned on the software. The system provides Dr. Nicosia with turn-by-turn guidance along the surgical implant path, like a road map or GPS of your anatomy with a tolerance of less than one millimeter. After the dental prosthesis is placed into each arch of the jawbone and gums, the area must heal sufficiently before the bridge implants are secured in place during dental surgery at our Houston, TX office. The total full-arch dental implant timeline may span anywhere from 3 – 6 months. With the right care and maintenance, these implants can last for the rest of your life.
Full-Arch Dental Implants Reviews
Best Implant Dentist in Houston If you are considering dental implants, then go see Dr. Nicosia. He is a perfectionist and the best around. His office staff is professional, efficient, and friendly. Highly recommend this practice.
Dr. Nicosia had placed an implant on my upper molar. Procedure was completely painless, easy breezy! He’s very skillful and an artist at his work. I’ve learned a lot from him and he’s very personable and treat you like family. He even call me the day after surgery to check if I was doing ok. If you’re looking for a periodontist, look no further! You can definitely put your trust in him and thank me later.
I and two other family members have used Dr. Nicosia over the past 10 years for dental implants. He’s absolutely the best! He is passionate about his work, uses the latest technology and is honest, kind and professional. His staff is equally excellent. I wouldn’t go to anyone else and I always recommend him to anyone needing dental work.
I had a very bad experience with 2 dentists and never went back to any dentist which made me have a very bad case of gingivitis, I couldn't even open my mouth! One dentist was practically on top of me working on my tooth and another dentist was rude when I asked questions. I never went back to any dentist and was afraid of them, until years later when I was loosing my teeth.I was recommended to Dr Nicosias office and took care of me like I was the only patient there! I HIGHLY recommend Dr Nicosia and his team! They made you feel part of their family and not just dollar signs. They take the time to explain everything detail by detail, even taught me how to brush and floss correctly which I did wrong for many years. Plus they are bilingual!! Thank you Dr Nicosia for saving my teeth and being very patient!
Highly recommend Dr. Nicosia. He and his entire staff are professional, highly knowledgeable, and extremely personable. I required a surgical tooth extraction, bone graft, and implant for my rt front canine. Everything was performed seamlessly...an expense I am more than willing to pay to have it done right! . . . A First Class Experience ~ Truly . . .
