Restore Your Smile with Full Arch Dental Implants
Losing a tooth represents a pretty exciting event when you’re a kid. That’s because many parents rewarded us for every tooth lost. However, the same isn’t entirely true when we become adults — a fact to which anyone who’s brought their missing tooth into their boss’s office could probably attest. Thankfully, many solutions are available, such as implant-supported restorations that can make your smile as good as new! And here at Pasadena Prosthodontics, Drs. Baldwin Marchack and Christopher Marchack and the team are here to answer all your tooth restoration questions.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants represent the best restoration solution for people suffering from missing or lose teeth, trauma, decay, or periodontal disease. Your implant will look and feel just like your natural tooth.
Dental implants are posts implanted directly into your jawbone. This treatment is the most stable and secure tooth restoration available, even more so than dentures and bridges.
Once your implant fully integrates with your jawbone, your dentist can complete your restoration with a bridge, dental crown, or overdenture. The restoration depends on the number of teeth being replaced. You can even get an entire arch restored with implants for your lower or upper arch.
Full arch implants entail placing a few strategic dental implants in the arch to support a dental denture that replaces the entire arch.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
You can rest assured that your new tooth will last for decades, possibly even your lifetime! That means no more messy creams or worries that your dentures will fall out.
Of course, your implants will last much longer if you take care of them. This also means keeping up routine visits to our office. A patient’s recommended average number of visits to the dental office is once every six months.
During your visit, we’ll check the condition of your implant and provide cleaning and maintenance to help your implant keep its attractive look.

What are the Downsides of Dental Implants?
Implants have relatively few downsides. However, unlike other forms of restoration, they require a more extended recovery period. This is necessary for the jawbone to heal around the implant and hold the implant securely.
Another drawback that applies to dental restorations, in general, is that you cannot whiten dental restorations. However, usually, this isn’t a problem since the artificial tooth or teeth are pre-colored to match the rest of your teeth.
But, while the restoration won’t change color from tooth whitening, your natural teeth will respond to the professional tooth whitening services we offer at Pasadena Prosthodontics.
