Full Mouth Dental Implants
Beautiful New Teeth For A Restored Life
Enjoy A New Smile The Same Day
Your smile is your calling card that makes a first impression and sets you apart. If you have missing teeth, this can have devastating consequences on your emotional and physical health. You may be too embarrassed to smile and this can negatively impact your self-esteem and quality of life. The physical repercussions of loose or missing teeth include gum disease, damage to other teeth, bone loss, undesirable facial changes and compromised nutrition. In some cases, missing teeth can even have a negative impact on your systemic health. If you have failing or missing teeth, severe jaw bone loss or complete tooth loss, full mouth dental implants in Fort Lauderdale, FL can provide a significant and dramatic transformation. From single implants to full mouth rejuvenation, Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa is dedicated to helping you achieve a healthy smile through extraordinary care, from the first consultation to final restoration!
We can help put an end to your painful and discouraging symptoms with full mouth solutions that fit your lifestyle, smile goals, and budget!
Customized Solutions For your Smile Needs
At Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa, we’re pleased to offer diverse solutions for replacing failing or missing teeth including traditional dentures, removable implant supported dentures and fixed, permanent full mouth dental implants. At your initial complimentary consultation, Dr. Patty will help you select the best protocol to meet your smile needs and budget. Dr. Patty loves the versatility of the All-on-4™ protocol because it enables her to place a minimum of five or six dental implants. A greater number of strategically placed implants builds a stronger foundation for your new teeth than the customary four implants and helps create perfect symmetry.
We also offer TeethToday™, a similar protocol to All-on-4 and Hybridge® Full Arch implants. TeethToday is designed specifically for patients with limited bone density in their jaw and like All-on-4™, enables receiving a new set of temporary teeth the same day as surgery. Hybridge® is an innovative protocol that delivers a fast, cost effective and simplified treatment approach. With Hybridge®, we can also provide a temporary denture while your surgical sites heal. The final Hybridge® prosthetic restoration is a cross-linked polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and chrome cobalt bridge replacing up to 12 teeth, supported on five to six dental implants.
Dentures Vs. Implant-Supported Full Mouth Restorations
Dentures are false removable teeth attached to an acrylic resin, gum-colored plate. Implant-retained dentures are a hybrid between implants and dentures that can be removable or fixed, with a prosthesis crafted from high-quality ceramic zirconia and sometimes PMMA. Although dentures are much less expensive, they do not provide the life-changing benefits of dental implants and are associated with many downsides. Dentures sit on your gums and can cause soreness and discomfort when you first wear them and later as your jaw bone shrinks. Denture wearers frequently complain about dentures clicking, slipping and falling out as well as speech and eating difficulties. Dentures also should be removed every night for cleaning and require messy adhesives.
Dental implants have revolutionized multiple tooth replacement and eliminated the numerous disadvantages and shortcomings of traditional dentures. One of the most important distinctions is that dental implants preserve underlying bone and encourage new bone growth. With dentures, bone loss progresses unchecked and leads to the characteristic sunken-in appearance most people associate with dentures.

The Smile Transformation Journey
Step 1: Personalized Consultation
During your personalized consultation, we will ask you about your particular needs, smile goals and concerns. Your overall health will be evaluated and we will ask you about your medical history and any current conditions or lifestyle factors that could impact a successful outcome. At this visit, we also discuss costs and ask for a deposit. We take a scan with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) to analyze your bone structure, nerve tissue and sinus cavities. About 150–200 images created in less than a minute are compiled into a single 3D picture. The 3D image and digital impressions created by an external dental lab that comes to our practice are used to precisely plan your dental implant surgery.
Although most adults who visit our practice are already candidates for full mouth dental implants in Fort Lauderdale, FL, bone loss and gum disease often require preliminary treatments. Tobacco smokers have a higher incidence of gum disease and tooth loss and smoking also adversely affects wound healing. This can jeopardize the success of bone grafting and fusion of the dental implants with your jawbone. As such, peri-implantitis, an inflammatory condition that can cause dental implants to fail, is more common in smokers.
Step 2: Precise Dental Implant Placement
At our practice, we specialize in relaxation dentistry. Our goal is to remove the fear and anxiety associated with dental visits by creating a welcoming and relaxing environment for clients. In addition to numbing your treatment sites with a local anesthetic, we offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation and IV sedation to ensure your comfort during surgery and alleviate dental anxiety. After sedation has taken effect, Dr. Patty extracts any remaining teeth, identifies optimal areas in your jawbone and makes small incisions in your gums where the implants will be placed. Implant screws are placed in your jawbone and a connector called an abutment is attached to each implant. An on-site milling machine allows us to deliver provisional full arch dental implants in Fort Lauderdale, FL at the same time as surgery.
Step 3: Final Restorations And New Beginnings
During a follow-up visit, we will check your progress to see if everything is healing properly. It takes dental implants three to six months to fuse with new bone growth in your jaw in a process called osseointegration. Proper osseointegration is essential for dental implants to act like natural tooth roots and provide a strong and long-lasting foundation for your new teeth.
