Before and After
The Full Arch Dental Implants Treatment Process
The steps for full arch dental implants treatment in our office are as follows: After the initial examination, if you are considered for this treatment, we will take a CT scan, photos, and digital scans and forward them to a laboratory. Next, Dr. Blourchian will have an online meeting with a laboratory technician to plan your surgery. They will go over every aspect of the surgery, such as the sizes of the implants and their optimal placements, any bone adjustments, shape, and sizes of teeth, etc. This is called “Guided Implant Surgery”. This is a crucial step for this surgery in our opinion. We take this step to ensure the best possible outcome for the surgery. On the surgery day (usually 6 weeks later), You will have general anesthesia administered by an anesthesiologist. You will feel nothing during the surgery and once you wake up, you will have your temporary teeth attached to your jaw(s). The final set of teeth will be manufactured 4 months later where the esthetics and feel of the teeth will be optimum. Full arch dental implants is a life-changing procedure and if done right and well maintained by the patient, you should never have to do it again. It is the best way to have a beautiful smile and eat food like you were in your twenties. Many patients of Dr. Blourchian have had this procedure done and some of their testimonies are on our website.
“The full arch dental implants procedure was explicitly created to be minimally invasive and uses specially designed implant posts available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.”
Benefits of Full Arch Dental Implants
Traditional dental implants offer a teeth replacement option that is most similar to one's natural teeth. Full arch dental implants provides the benefits of traditional implants, plus several additional advantages:
- Speed: Patients can undergo the full arch dental implants process in as little as one appointment. Dentists can insert the implants and place the teeth replacements in the space of three to four hours. Though some patients may need several appointments to achieve desired results, full arch dental implants is still likely to be faster than more traditional options.
- Easier Recovery: Another common benefit tends to be less pain following the procedure. The process is more streamlined and designed to minimize trauma. Typically, patients recover quickly with the aid of prescription or over-the-counter analgesics and an ice pack during the first day or two following the procedure.
- Multiple Teeth Replacement: Originally designed to replace a large number of missing teeth, full arch dental implants is most often used to replace a full arch. For people needing a complete replacement, full arch dental implants can be a superior alternative to more traditional options.
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, implants are an essential factor in reducing the bone loss that typically occurs in the jaw after tooth loss. Full arch dental implants provides a quicker, easier way to get the benefits of implants. It also allows those with complete tooth loss to get implants.

Candidates for Full Arch Dental Implants
Full arch dental implants may be a good option for those who need to replace all teeth in one or both jaws. Also, our team can work with patients to schedule full arch dental implants as part of a treatment plan involving all-teeth extraction. Additionally, patients who have been wearing full dentures for some time may opt for full arch dental implants. They often find that this teeth replacement option gives them more functionality and less hassle than dealing with dentures, which need frequent upkeep and replacement.
Patients who already have reduced jaw bone mass can also benefit from full arch dental implants. Opting for traditional implants would likely mean these patients would need to undergo a separate bone graft procedure and wait for a few months afterward to receive implants. Full arch dental implants allows many patients with bone loss to enjoy the functionality and stability of implants without needing a bone graft.
