Dr. Gardner’s Dental Implant Expertise

Full mouth dental implant placement is a complex surgical procedure requiring experience and precision. Successful results hinge on your dentist’s skill and knowledge. Dr. Gardner is a Doctor of Dental Surgery, continually expanding his understanding of full mouth dental implants and the latest procedures and technologies for optimal results. His fellowship in advanced prosthodontics and implant dentistry led to his current position as Chief of the Implant Fellowship, where he instructs other dentists in advanced, full mouth dental implant procedures. Dr. Gardner is a frequent lecturer on Restorative and Implant Dentistry across the country. He brings this knowledge to his practice patients for exceptional results.

Full Mouth Dental Implant Procedure

If all or most teeth in the upper or lower jaw are missing, full mouth dental implants are often the best solution. If a few teeth remain, Dr. Gardner extracts these and prepares the gums and jawbone to receive the implants. There are several steps to the implant process, beginning with a complete dental exam, diagnostic imaging, discussion of your oral health, and designing your replacement teeth. Dr. Gardner answers any patient questions and thoroughly explains the process to his patients so that they are comfortable throughout the process.

The implant placements are guided by precision 3D images and Dr. Gardner‘s expertise. The number and location of the implants depend on a variety of factors, including jawbone structure and strength.

For most patients, between four and eight implants are used.

The full arch uses advanced resins and high-quality dental porcelain to mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth and gums. These are attached to the titanium implants in the jawbone using metal abutments and dental cement. A fixed, temporary bridge is placed over the implants while your permanent prosthesis is custom-crafted. The result is a complete set of beautiful replacement teeth that look, function, and feel like your natural teeth.

Who is a Good Candidate for Full Mouth Dental Implants?

Good health and a healthy mouth are the foundation of successful implant surgery. Most healthy adults missing a lot of teeth are candidates for full mouth dental implants if they want a permanent solution that provides comfort, convenience, and esthetics. Criteria that indicate you are a candidate for full mouth implants include:

  • Having a healthy jawbone that can support the implants. If your jawbone has thinned or lost density, bone grafts may be needed before implant surgery.
  • The implant recovery process takes time. It is an invasive procedure; the jawbone needs time to heal after the implant procedure.
  • Willingness to follow Dr. Gardner’s instructions for at-home care. This includes giving up smoking, which inhibits recovery and can lead to long-term jawbone deterioration.

Dr. Gardner evaluates each patient individually, discussing the pros and cons of full mouth dental implants and answering questions. If he determines that full arch implants are an appropriate option for you, he develops a personalized treatment plan for your dental implants and personally performs every step of the procedure to ensure the best possible outcome.

Caring for full mouth dental implants is not very different than caring for natural teeth. Flossing once a day and brushing twice a day is essential. Routine dental exams and professional teeth cleaning help maintain your overall oral health and prevent potential problems. Dr. Gardner will confirm that the implants are functioning as they should at these checkups. Full mouth dental implants are as close to your natural teeth as possible. The fact that they are easy to care for and maintain is a true win for patients missing a lot of teeth who do not like the inconvenience and discomfort of dentures.
