This approach is used in case there are multiple teeth missing in the same region of the mouth. In this case, fewer dental implants are fixed with bridges which provide stability to the adjacent teeth.

Full arch implant restorations are in two types, i.e
- Implant supported dentures
- Fixed bridges anchored to dental implants
These options are utilized in case many teeth require restoration in the entire jaw.
The Procedure of Dental Implants Restoration

Prior to the procedure, the dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone and an X-ray will be taken. In case you are under any kind of treatment or sickness, the treatment must be completed before embarking on dental implant treatment.
Drilling into the bone is the first step of the prosthesis procedure that will help in the proper fixation of the dental implant and the crown. The Pivot Hole/s is made in the edentulous region carefully to preserve the bone and the nearby teeth while emphasizing osseointegration purposes.
Mini dental implants will be fixed for a time being to allow bone integration and healing.
On the next appointment, CT scans along with the dentist’s expertise are utilized to provide the best dental implant treatment, i.e. protect the jaw, bone, and nearby teeth, great functionality, and prevent damage while maintaining the facial appearance or structure
During the procedure, the doctor is also careful to prevent bone and nerve damage while preventing pressurizing, and overloading the surrounding bone. The abutment will be uncovered for a period of 5 or 6 months (healing period) and a crown will be placed to allow the gum to shape naturally
A permanent crown will then be placed on the implant after removing the temporary crown
