Upper or Lower Arch

upper or lower arch replacement

A mouth is made up of two arches: lower and upper arch. A Full Arch Replacement is a prosthetic bridge placed on 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 implants. The minimum number of implants to support a Full Arch Replacement is 4, and is commonly referred to as All-on-Four®.

The entire upper or lower jaw gets a makeover and the results are completely life-changing. 

When too many teeth are decayed or missing, a Full Arch Replacement can restore the integrity of the jaw and provide outstanding permanent results.

The All-on-X Method (commonly referred to as All-on-Four®) is a brand name for this type of procedure, and it means that the prosthetic bridge is anchored on a certain number of implants. 

This method is advantageous in that not every tooth in the bridge has to have an artificial root. 

With a customized number of dental implants, the bridge is able to securely fit into the patient’s jawbone, minimizing chances of movement.
