Full-Mouth Dental Implants 

One arch of full mouth dental implants

Full-mouth dental implants are a popular solution for individuals with multiple missing or severely damaged teeth. The treatment process that involves placing dental implants in the upper or lower jaw to support a full arch of replacement teeth provides patients with a permanent and natural-looking solution to restore their smile.

At Dale City Smiles, our Woodbridge, VA, dentist offers full-mouth dental implants to treat a range of dental conditions in addition to multiple missing teeth.

Our dentist can use them to replace one or both arches. Specifically, we use them to correct severely decayed, damaged, or injured teeth that root canals or crowns can’t treat.

We should note that problems related to poorly fitting dentures, such as slippage and discomfort, can also be remedied with full-mouth dental implants.

Benefits of full-mouth dental implants

Dental implants offer several benefits over traditional dentures or bridges, such as a permanent solution for embarrassing shifting or slipping. This allows patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

They also provide superior stability and support for the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.

Full-Mouth Dental Implants

Typically, receiving dental implants involves two phases:

Stage one: Our dentist surgically places the implants in the jawbone.

Stage two: Our dental practitioner attaches a customized set of replacement teeth to the implants.

Depending on the individual case, the process may take several months to complete.

Implant materials

We can make full-mouth dental implants from various materials, including titanium and zirconia.

Titanium implants are the most commonly used and offer excellent durability and biocompatibility. Zirconia implants are a newer option when compared to others and are known for their superb esthetics, as they closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth.


Candidates for dental implants must have healthy gums and sufficient jawbone density to support the implants. Patients with underlying health conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders, may not be good candidates for dental implants.

Cost of full-mouth dental implants

These tooth restorations can be a significant investment, with costs varying depending on the number of implants required and the materials used. However, many patients find that the long-term benefits of implants outweigh the initial cost.

On average, dental implants can range from $20,000 to $50,000 per arch. While the cost of full-mouth implants may see significant upfront, it is important to consider the long-term benefits and cost-effectivelness.

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for tooth loss, unlike temporary options such as dentures or bridges. They provide improved oral health, enhanced chewing abilitliy, and a natural-looking smile.

Additionally, dental implants provide superior stability and support for the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.

Fortunately, affordable dentures and implants are possible since dental insurance may cover a portion of the cost depending on the patient’s plan and coverage. A person should discuss with their dentist or insurer about their coverage and financial options.

Dental implants are a valuable solution for individuals who have lost multiple teeth or have severely damaged teeth. The durability and longevity of dental implants can outweigh the initial investment.

Not to mention, affordable dentures and implants are possible through insurance and our dental savings plan.
