Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full Mouth Reconstruction

If all your teeth are missing or failing, you are not destined to live with bulky, uncomfortable dentures for the rest of your life. The good news is, dental implants can restore your teeth to almost natural condition. With great technological advances in the field of implant dentistry, you are now able to have teeth that look, feel, and function just as natural teeth. Your new teeth will also stay in your mouth permanently. You no longer have to live with removable dentures that cause embarrassment.

The following cases represent examples of full arch/mouth reconstructions:

This case demonstrates replacement of a removable full lower denture with permanent, fixed implant teeth. This 62 year old patient lost all his lower teeth recently and was wearing this lower denture transitionally during the course of implant treatment. This type of denture has traditionally been used to replace missing teeth. Patients who have to use this denture are generally dissatisfied due to its bulk, lack of retention, ineffective chewing power, inability to eat a complete diet, interfering with their speech and other problems. Many such patients prefer implant retained fixed teeth to enhance esthetic and function.

Patient Testimonial:
I had been interested in having implants for several years, but kept putting it off because of the fear they would not be as good as advertised, and the expense, since my insurance did not cover the cost. When I finally got serious about implants I started investigating dental offices that had extensive experience in that field. I wanted one dentist to do the entire process, from extraction to finished product. I even drove by offices that I was considering. My investigation paid off in Aces. I found you, Dr. Khazian!

I scheduled an appointment and immediately felt comfortable. When I asked if my wife could also meet with you, and she did, she also immediately felt the same way. In a few months I had 6 implants and a new bridge, beautiful new teeth. Biting and chewing everything from hot dogs to steaks, it had been a long time since I could do that.

The Dental work required several appointments and a lot of hours; but the entire procedure was less painful than root canals or other dental work I have had in the past. Thank you, Dr. Khazian and your staff for being very capable, competent and caring; — It has been my pleasure.
