What is Permateeth?

In full arch replacement, a full jaw of teeth can be replaced with dental implants and fixed bridges for a stable, aesthetic, long term solution. With state of the art implant systems today, a minimum number of implants are required to support the full arch of upper or lower teeth. This cutting edge technology has life changing benefits for many people. It provides a solution that is comfortable, secure, and reliable, unlike removable dentures.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants function as artificial roots of the teeth. They are titanium post, similar to a tooth root, that are surgically placed in the jawbone beneath the gum line and allows Dr. Hookom to attach a tooth, bridge, or denture to the implant(s).
 
Implants do not come loose like dentures, and they do not have to be anchored to other teeth like a bridge. Unlike dentures, with dental implants, there are no problems with eating and no worries about smiling openly and freely.

 

Permateeth Procedures?

In the first phase of the procedure, Dr. Hookom will surgically place the implants in the jawbone. Dental implants are titanium posts that fuse to the jawbone and function like tooth roots to hold a replacement tooth or bridge securely. The implants will take several months to heal, and fully integrate within your jaw. Temporary teeth are attached so you can eat and function normally during the healing period. The next step is to fit and securely install the permanent bridge onto the implants. Your new teeth will look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

How do I care for my Permateeth dental implants?


Dental implants can be treated and cared for just like your natural teeth. After your procedure is complete, our dental hygienists will ensure you have all the instructions you need for proper care of your dental implants to ensure functional, aesthetic durability that lasts a lifetime. Proper care for your Permateeth dental implants includes routine dental exams, daily brushing and flossing, and deep cleanings to ensure their longevity.

Permateeth Benefits
In addition to comfort, convenience, and reliability, full arch Permateeth can have significant health benefits for men and women who have lost or losing their teeth. Implants stabilize and stimulate the surrounding bone, preventing the loss of jawbones volume and density. Implant-supported teeth allow normal function of the jaw, nerves, muscles, and joints. They also allow a patient to eat, chew, speak, laugh, kiss, and smile normally. They restore support to the mouth, lips and facial structure for a more youthful and attractive appearance. 

 A fixed bridge attached to dental implants has many advantages over removable traditional dentures. 
• Your replacement teeth are not taken in or out of your mouth or attached with adhesives. 
• There is less discomfort and insecurity associated with dentures
• You are able to eat and function as though your replacement teeth were natural teeth. 
• Bone loss is prevented and your facial structure is preserved
• It is a stable, long-term solution that can last a lifetime for many people. 
 
If you have lost all  your teeth in the upper or lower jaw or your remaining teeth will soon need to be extracted, full arch permateeth may be the right solution for you.
