What's the difference between getting a full mouth and removable dentures?
Traditionally, dentures have been the most common treatment option for replace missing teeth. Although it is a great solution, dentures can often be uncomfortable to wear and may have dietary restrictions, such as avoiding crunchy or sticky foods. They also need to be cleaned daily and replaced every few years.
When you apply the TTFA treatment or fix your full mouth, you will have an excellent alternative that can provide a more natural appearance for replacement teeth. As they act like the roots of natural teeth, they feel much more natural to chew and don't move in the mouth. Implants can be cared for just like natural teeth with brushing and flossing twice a day, and with good care, they could last a lifetime.
Who is suitable to get a full mouth done or to apply the TTFA treatment?
This treatment can be done by anyone, but mainly, it was designed for people with total loss of teethEither from an accident or other causes, as long as you have the bone. It also applies to people who have lost their teeth due to being seriously damaged by tooth decay or gum disease and they need to be removed.
To be eligible for this procedure, as we mentioned earlier, you must have enough bone to place the implants. It is also preferable that the candidate is a non-smoker and does not suffer from diabetes, as these two points can create complications in the implant healing process.
The best way to know if you are a suitable candidate for TFFA implant restoration is to book a consultation with your dental physician as long as he or she specializes in dental implants.
What Happens During the Full Mouth Procedure?
In the procedure, the dentist makes sure that you fully understand what to expect during the TFFA implant procedure. This treatment can sometimes be completed in a single visit, but this depends on the individual case.. Implant restoration to fix the full mouth has 5 stages, which can be completed in one or more appointments:
In this part you will administer Anesthesia local so that you do not feel pain during treatment. You can discuss more sedation options if you have anxiety about dental treatments and need help to feel calm.
If you still have teeth, you should remove them before placing implants. If a large number of teeth need to be extracted, or the doctor detects signs of gum disease or an infection, temporary provisional teeth can be used and your implant treatment continued after your mouth has had time to heal.
If your mouth is ready for place implants, the dentist will prepare the implant sites to avoid infection. The incisions are then carefully made in your gum and the titanium implants are placed safely in the jaw. In most cases, two implants are placed towards the front of the mouth and two in the back, but you may need additional implants depending on the size and condition of your jaw.
Placement of the dental bridge
Once the implants have been placed, we will clean and disinfect the treated areas and connect your artificial dental bridge. Our dentists design these replacement teeth to look as close to natural teeth as possible and the implants will securely anchor them.
After the TFFA procedure is finished, you can go to the recovery room for recover from anesthesia, taking care to avoid straining and following your dentist's advice on food and pain management.
What is the recovery time to get a full mouth fixed?
