If you have many decayed and missing teeth, be assured you can smile with complete confidence once again. In these cases, the best course of action may be to restore complete oral health and a new set of teeth. How? While some practices offer dentures as an option, full mouth dental implants are unmatched in their benefits. No other tooth replacement option looks as natural, feels as comfortable, or is built to last as long as full arch dental implants. They’re the best way to regain the ability to eat and speak normally, and smile without embarrassment.
When it comes to full mouth dental implant placement, no other specialist can match the expertise of periodontists. As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. Jack O’Neill is uniquely qualified to provide you with life-changing dental implants. He completed additional years of specialty training and experience that empower him to deliver the results you desire. After undergoing treatment, you’ll forget that you ever had problems eating or speaking. That you ever hesitated to smile in a social situation. That you ever had such a poor self-image. Full mouth dental implants will allow you to live a more fulfilling life!
Dr. O’Neill can determine if you’re a candidate for full arch dental implants through a free consultation in our Shreveport, LA office. On the day of the procedure, he’ll prepare you for surgery using one or a combination of sedation options, including IV sedation, oral sedation, nitrous oxide, and local anesthetic. If you need any tooth extractions to restore oral health and make space for dental implants, he can perform those during the same visit. In the event that you have some bone loss in your jaw, he can also begin the restoration process through bone grafting. The implant procedure itself consists of permanently inserting titanium implant posts into your jaw—only the minimum number needed to secure your new teeth. Afterward, Dr. O’Neill will fit you with a temporary prosthesis that constitutes a full set of teeth and will enable you to quickly return to enjoying life again.
