Are you unhappy with how you look when you smile? It’s common to want to hide imperfections with your teeth — especially in cases of missing teeth — and making you feel self-conscious about your smile can keep you from being yourself around others. Brandon Kang, DDS, and Matt Chroust, DDS, MD, lead the team at Pacific Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center. They provide full-arch restorations at their practices in Oakland and in the Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood in San Francisco, California. If you’re ready to show the world your best side, call the practice to make an appointment or book using the online tool.
Full-arch restoration is reconstructive dentistry. It fixes issues with your gums, teeth, jaw, and bite. It’s an efficient process; your surgeon can restore many teeth at once, using as few as four implants. Once your implants are in place, they last decades and require no specialized treatment outside of your regular twice-a-year checkups and cleanings.
Your surgeon assesses the condition of your jawbone and gums to determine the most appropriate smile reconstruction process.
The team at Pacific Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center recommends full-arch restoration to patients who are missing all or most of their teeth. It’s suitable for anyone who has severe gum disease or tooth decay and for whom a full-mouth tooth extraction is the most appropriate treatment plan. Full-arch restoration is also an excellent alternative for people who wear removable dentures but are keen to move to a permanent solution.
For a successful operation, your jawbone must be structurally sound to securely hold the implants when they’re screwed in. Don’t worry too much if your bone is fragile or beginning to degrade. Often, your surgeon can include a bone graft as part of the procedure to restore bone strength and structure.
The team at Pacific Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center guides you through every step of the process, so you know all your options before moving forward.
Full-arch restoration is growing in popularity because of its wealth of benefits over other teeth replacement options. They include:
Your surgeons at Pacific Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center perform full-mouth extractions and place the implants all in the same day. You walk out of your appointment with a full set of temporary teeth.
A full-arch restoration rebuilds your bone structure — and your smile — so you can once again beam with confidence.
