Full Arch Restorations
Our Full Arch Restorations
Sublime Dental® offers permanent or removable full arch restorations, depending on your needs. If you’re missing all of your teeth from your upper or lower arch, a full arch restoration can help you regain simple daily functions such as enjoying the foods you love. There are three different types of full arch restorations: a fixed bridge, removable over denture and a removable full denture.
Fixed Bridge Restoration
A fixed bridge is often the most popular restoration choice as it is permanent and will feel and function the same as your natural teeth. Fixed bridge restorations use a combination of dental implants and a dental bridge to restore your smile. A dental bridge is a made out of a pontic (solid false tooth), and two exterior porcelain crowns. It is designed to fill in a gap left by a missing tooth or a group of teeth by attaching to an existing or installed solid tooth structure in the mouth.
For any treatment to commence, you will first be required to talk with one of our friendly staff for a consultation, so we can determine best the approach for your personalised treatment. During the consultation, we can suggest how many implants will be needed for your treatment, along with the shape and size of your prosthetic teeth. After a thorough clean, we can install your implants, which will act at the new tooth roots. We usually attach four or five implants per arch, and while your jawbone is integrating with the implants, we will secure crowns so that the aesthetic of your smile is returned immediately. The end result is that your smile is fully restored and your fixed dentures will appear just like a natural smile would.
