The Benefits of Full Arch Implants Modern Dentistry's Best Restorative Option
Traditional dentures typically need uncomfortable dental adhesive and natural suction to stay in place. Even though modern dentures are more secure than the prosthetics of the past, they are still prone to slip out of place. Conversely, with the full-arch implants method, our oral surgeon can securely attach a high-quality denture to a minimal number of dental implants, which are fused with your jaw. Because they are attached to permanent implants, full-arch implant dentures remain in place while you are eating, speaking, and smiling.

Advanced Oral Surgery has superior customer service. What a great feeling you receive when you enter the office. The team is so compassionate and caring. This is extremely noticeable when you look at the interaction between team members.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that serve as prosthetic tooth roots. An oral surgeon places implants through the gums and directly into the jawbone. Over time, the biocompatible titanium in the implants naturally fuses with the bone in a process known as osseointegration. Once the fusing process is complete, implants provide all of the support and strength of natural tooth roots.
Dental professionals can use implants to restore any number of missing teeth. When a patient has a full mouth of missing teeth, Dr. Jason Edwards and Dr. Thomas Backeris are able to use a minimal number of implants to securely replace all teeth on the arch with the full arch implants method.

How Does the All-on-4 Technique Work?
The All-on-4 treatment concept uses four strategically placed dental implants along each arch. Your dentist will place each dental implant at an angle to maximize what bone density you have left, allowing you to avoid bone grafting. This is a great option for patients who would otherwise not qualify for dental implants. The All-on-4 technique delivers the same benefits as traditional dental implants, providing a stable denture that restores function and appearance to your bite while preserving your remaining bone density.
Don't Be Ashamed of Missing Teeth It's a Common Concern
Furthermore, the American College of Prosthodontists also estimates that about 40 million people nationwide are currently missing all of their teeth.
Who Is a Good Candidate
for Full Arch Implants?
Full arch implants using the All-on-4 technique frees you from the hassles of removable dentures by giving you teeth that stay put, just like natural teeth. These revolutionary implants are even cared for like your original teeth with simple brushing, flossing, and regular dental appointments.
But the All-on-4 technique is best used in specific situations and should be weighed against other teeth replacement options. The All-on-4 technique is designed for patients who lack the bone density needed to support traditional implants.
However, treatment candidates must still have sufficient bone density in the jaw to support an entire arch of teeth on just four implants; otherwise, the implants will likely fail. You also need a good foundation for your dentures to function properly.
Basic criteria for full arch implants using the All-on-4 method:
- You have enough bone at the front of the jaw to allow for placement of the longer full arch implants.
- You lack good bone in the area of your molars, in the back of the jaw.
- You want immediate load implants.
How Can I Find Out if Full Arch Implants Are Right for Me? Call for a Consultation
A consultation at Advanced Oral Surgery of Tampa is really the only way for us to determine the best options in your case.
Your ideal teeth replacement solution will depend on your goals, jawbone structure, age, health, lifestyle, and budget. During the consultation, we can use our sophisticated scanning technology to capture a digital image of your mouth, which will allow us to assess bone density in your jaw. We can then discuss the best tooth replacement options for your case.
Dr. Jason Edwards and Dr. Thomas Backeris offer many options for full teeth replacement, and if full arch implants are not feasible, our doctors can explain which options will work for you and give you the information you need to make an educated choice.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will dental insurance cover dental implants?
While implants are restorative in nature, most insurances do not cover the cost of the actual implants. We offer financing options to help make your treatment more affordable. Call or message us online to learn more about our available financing options.
Does it hurt?
The process for having your dental implants placed involves surgery. You will be sedated during the procedure, and you will not feel any pain while the implants are being placed. However, there may be some discomfort while you heal. This is usually managed using over-the-counter pain medications or prescription medications. Your dentist will provide detailed instructions to ensure any discomfort is managed. If for any reason you feel unmanageable pain during recovery, please call our dental practice immediately so we can address your discomfort as soon as possible.
How do I clean my implant-supported dentures?
Dentures supported by implants using the All-on-4 technique do not need to be removed for routine cleaning. You will treat your new dentures just like regular teeth, including brushing twice a day and flossing daily. During your routine cleanings and exams, your dentist might remove them to ensure your implants, gums, and bones are healthy. Otherwise, your dentures will remain in place.
Does the All-on-4 technique make my dentures look different?
No. Your dentures are custom-created to fit your mouth and will look just like natural teeth. You can smile with confidence knowing your new dentures will be practically indistinguishable from real teeth. If you only need one arch restored, your dentist can shade-match your new dentures to ensure they look just like your remaining natural teeth. The implants are not visible once the dentures are in place.
