Smiling is one of the most essential things humans do to connect with other people, although it can also be uncomfortable and embarrassing when you have lost all the teeth.
Many people think that dentures or bridges are the only options to replace missing teeth.
Full mouth dental implants is another effective treatment that offers distinct advantages over dentures and other procedures.
But before we explain these great advantages it’s important you completely understand what a full mouth treatment is.
A full mouth restoration or treatment is a term used to describe dental procedures that help to restore teeth in both the patients upper and lower jaws.
Like any other dental procedure, the very first step is to be diagnosed by a professional. Your mouth will be examined by your dentist to determine the extent of the problem and the treatment options that can be used to bring your natural smile back.
Full mouth Restoration Options:
• Dental Implants
• Dental Bridge
• Dental Dentures
• Dental Crowns
• All on program
A full mouth implant is a very best way to restore appearance, structure, and function like healthy natural teeth.
Dental Implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned to replace tooth roots. With these implants, the dentist will be able to put teeth to replace your smile.
Implants are attached directly into the jawbone.
In the initial visit the implants will be placed and a temporary crown. When the dental implant has successfully osseointegrated with the jawbone, usually takes from 4 to 6 months.
The patient will then come back for a second visit, during which the surgeon will insert an abutment to place the crown on the implant.
All on 4 implants: 4 implants are placed on your jaw, to rehabilitate the patient smile and teeth. By using only four posts, instead of one per tooth and the process becomes minimally invasive.
All on 6: 6 implants are placed on your jaw, to rehabilitate the patient smile and teeth. Is going to require more bone and more bone strength than an all-on-4.
Full Mouth dental implants vs. Traditional dentures
Nowadays, full mouth dental implants are becoming more and more popular, especially in the lower jaw. Unlike traditional dentures, full mouth implants, also known as “supported dentures” are stable and stay in place permanently.
Dentures are the traditional and basic form of restoring lost teeth, is a reliable method not only to fix teeth, but also they help to bring back lost functions such as chewing and the speech.
They are relatively cheap compared to other alternatives, making them more affordable and available to more people.
However, dentures often affect the quality life of some people because of the lack of stability, as well as the inconveniences of using them.
Some of the challenges associated with complete removable dentures are:
• Bone loss over time. Results in a denture that is loose fitting, has less support and suction. Unfortunately, the more the bone deteriorates the more sunken-in the cheeks become.
• Loose dentures that won’t stay in. The most common reason dentures don’t stay in is a poor fit, because of the quality of the dentures.
• Denture sores. Ill-fitting or loose dentures, as a result of the jawbone changes, shape, and shrinks.
• Limitations to eat favorite foods. There are a few things you’ll need to avoid as hard foods, hot liquids, and sticky foods.
• Movement of dentures with speech or eating.

Jack Mosca, a patient from California share with us his comments on the full mouth restoration treatment he received:
"Two years ago I began the restoration of all my teeth. Fortunately, I discovered Sani Dental. I started with 3 implants and two extractions, 5 months later my wife and I returned for our first Dental Vacation.
My wife left with just a good cleaning, I had my implants completed and 14 of my front teeth crowned. This past summer on our Dental Vacation, my wife once again had only required cleaning and I had the balance of my back teeth crowned”.
“The only tooth we never touched was a back molar (#18) hoping a root canal would save it, it didn't. I needed the tooth to be pulled. I no longer use Sani just for the price - their quality is excellent.
My son could not understand why I would drive some 3 1/2 hours to save a few dollars....it is not the price - it's the QUALITY! Dr. Omar Valero Monroy an Oral Surgeon who did my implants is why I drove to Sani for that tooth extraction.
If you're reading this you are probably considering using Sani. It took me until I saw 2 of my neighbors raving about the quality, prices and their beautiful new white teeth at Sani. I have no regrets and I estimate I saved over $20,000."
