Reinvigorate Your Smile With Full Mouth Dental Implants

Missing teeth can affect much more than just your personal appearance. If you’re missing a lot of teeth, you’re probably also having problems eating a balanced diet, not to mention smiling for photographs. On top of all that, the longer you go without replacing your missing teeth, the more volume you’re bound to lose in your jaw and the more the esthetics of your face will change, as well.

All-on-X full mouth dental implants are a state-of-the-art permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth, and Golden Oak Sedation Dental & Implant Center is proud to provide these dental implants in Cookeville, TN.

Dentures vs. Full Arch Dental Implants

Until very recently, your only option for full arch restoration was dentures. While they may still seem like a convenient solution to tooth loss, they have a variety of drawbacks that make dental implants a superior choice in most cases. Full mouth dental implants are permanently attached to four or more titanium or zirconium posts that are implanted into your mouth. You take care of them as if they were your natural teeth!

The Golden Oak Sedation Dental Implant Journey

At Golden Oak Sedation Dental & Implant Center, we’re serious about restoring the function and beauty of your smile. From the moment you first enter our office, you’ll be greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable staff, who will be glad to help you through the process of getting your full arch restorations. Dental implant surgery at Golden Oak involves four stages:

Step 1: Personalized Consultation

During your first visit to our practice, you’ll meet with our dentist Dr. Johnny Shanks to discuss your needs and goals for your smile. You’ll get a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan in order to determine whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants. We’ll send the results of this scan to our in-house dental laboratory, where we’ll create customized surgical guides that are customized just for your mouth.

Step 2: Dental Implant Surgery

After your initial consultation, we’ll schedule you for your surgery date. We offer a variety of sedation dentistry options, from nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) to oral sedation, to maximize your comfort level. This is where Dr. Shanks will insert the posts into your jaw. The day after your surgery, you will return to us for your custom temporary prosthetic teeth.

Step 3: Check-Up Appointment

While your jaw is healing from surgery, it’s important to take care of yourself! That means returning to our Cookeville, TN office for any needed follow-up appointments, during which Dr. Shanks will make sure you’re healing properly.

Step 4: Final Restoration

In general, it takes three to four months for your jaw to heal from dental implant surgery. Once you’re fully healed, you will come to our office and Dr. Shanks will attach your final restoration.
