Full arch implants completely restore function and aesthetics to patients who have lost all of their teeth in one or both arches, producing a life changing impact on their quality of life.
Benefits of full arch implants at
The Bristol Dental Practice
Strategic use of bone
Treatment is designed to make strategic use of the patient’s jawbone: implants are placed where there is enough bone to provide a secure foundation, and in cases where the patient has lost bone mass as a result of wearing dentures, because the jawbone naturally recedes when it is not supporting tooth roots, the fixtures may be placed at an angle to optimise the available bone.
Once the implant fixtures are in place the patient will be given temporary bridges to wear for a few months until the implants have fused with the bone and are ready to support the permanent bridges. These are made to a high quality with skilled craftsmanship by our supporting dental laboratories.

What happens in a consultation
for full arch implants?
Patients will receive a lengthy assessment by an experienced implant surgeon who will listen to their concerns and build a clear picture of what they want to achieve. The clinician will review why the patient lost their teeth and show them examples of similar cases they have treated. The patient will leave having understood all the options and then be able to choose a detailed treatment plan that has been designed to meet their needs.
How to care for full arch
We advise patients to see a hygienist every three or six months for a thorough clean, and to attend annual or biannual check-ups with an experienced implant dentist. As with natural teeth, daily brushing and flossing is advised, and specific instructions will be provided by the hygienist. All implant patients are given a dental hygiene instruction appointment after treatment to make sure they are aware of how to look after their significant investment.
