If you have missing or severely damaged teeth, you may know the physical and emotional pain that so many people experience due to failing teeth. Our board-certified periodontist, Dr. Daniel Lauer, has helped numerous individuals correct their complex dental issues, and he has seen, firsthand, the toll these problems can have on a person’s life. From what you eat to how you interact with others, tooth loss can affect your nutrition, relationships, career, and overall happiness. If you are ready to get your smile back, consider the revolutionary full mouth teeth replacement. Dr. Lauer is proud to offer this permanent solution as an alternative to removable dentures. It involves a foundation of 4-6 dental implants that secure a set of new prosthetic teeth. Not only can this give you a beautiful new smile, but the entire process can often be completed in as little as 24 hours!
To get started with your full mouth teeth replacement, Dr. Lauer will conduct an in-depth evaluation of your current oral state. This will involve taking scans of your jaw using our advanced 3D cone beam imaging technology. Based on the health and density of your bone, Dr. Lauer can determine the appropriate number of dental implants needed as well as the best locations to place them. With this information, the lab technician fabricates a surgical guide for Dr. Lauer to use for your implant surgery.
During your surgery, Dr. Lauer will extract the remaining deteriorating teeth and replace them with 4-6 dental implants per arch, usually within the same visit. By using the surgical guide to place your implants, Dr. Lauer is able to achieve the highest precision and efficiency, ultimately increasing your potential for successful implant results. At the conclusion of your surgery, Dr. Lauer will take an impression of your mouth, allowing the lab to fabricate a full arch replacement of teeth to be delivered the next day at your restoring dentist’s office.
To complete the process of obtaining your healthy new smile, your restoring dentist attaches the full arch teeth replacement to your implants. You will then wear this prosthesis for about 4-6 months, after which a permanent replacement is fabricated and delivered to the final contours of your gums and implants. Most patients can complete all three steps within 24 hours, allowing them to smile, eat, interact, and live without fear or embarrassment. The procedure is truly life-changing, as it can transform both your smile and your self-confidence.
To complement his expertise in placing dental implants, Dr. Lauer utilizes the Planmeca ProMax® 3D imaging technology to plan your surgery. This state-of-the-art device conducts a cone beam scan, which captures high quality digital images of your jaw and teeth, providing a complete view of the structures in your mouth. This detailed information is then sent to the lab, allowing them to fabricate a surgical guide specific to your anatomy. Using this highly customized tool, Dr. Lauer is able to fully optimize your dental implant surgery, placing the posts with enhanced precision for superior results.
There is a reason why so many dentists refer their patients to Dr. Lauer for periodontal care. Aside from being a board-certified specialist who is equipped for the most challenging of cases, Dr. Lauer genuinely cares about your well-being and is committed to helping you achieve the best possible outcome. He is transparent with what you can expect and strives to calm any fears you may have about your full mouth teeth replacement. Through such personalized attention, you can expect the highest quality of care, from the consultation through the end of your recovery.
At Precision Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we know that undergoing a full mouth teeth replacement can be an intimidating decision, which is why we prioritize patient education and strive to help you feel relaxed throughout the process. When it comes time for your procedure, you will be given oral sedation to ensure you remain comfortable. Any pain during or after the procedure is typically minimal, and most patients feel back to normal within a matter of days. Dr. Lauer will talk with you in detail about the procedure, addressing any concerns you may have to help you feel at ease and confident about your decision.
