Full Mouth Dental Implants
Full Mouth Dental Implants in Thailand
What is full mouth dental implants?
Do you know that more than 10% of people are missing all of their upper and/or lower teeth? Rather than living with the discomfort and handicap of removable dentures, many are opting for what is called full mouth dental implants. Full mouth dental implants is a fixed prosthesis which replaces missing teeth in edentulous patient (no teeth). Full dental implants in Thailand provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options like removable dentures. It can mimic chewing efficiency almost like your own natural teeth that patient once had. You can eat certain foods that can be very difficult to eat with removable dentures. In the past, we can only offer removable complete dentures which only have 10-20% chewing efficiency compared to natural teeth. Normal problems are loose or unstable denture, unable to eat tough food, sore spot, etc. Being without teeth is more serious problems than many people realise. Many have suffered inadequate nutrition with the inability to eat properly. Therefore, multiple dental implants which can act like anchors can stabilise prosthesis and bring back confidence with much better chewing efficiency for these patients. Another big advantage of getting full dental implants in Thailand, is that they do not require the hassle maintenance as removable dentures, which have to be removed and cleaned every time after eating. Moreover, removable dentures have to be taken out of the mouth at night in order to rest the oral tissue. Instead, dental implants only need daily brushing and flossing routines as natural teeth. Finally, your jaw bone will be better preserved because full mouth dental implants will keep the bone with its titanium surface. Unlike removable dentures, the jaw bone will begin to deteriorate from biting force without any anchor from tooth roots or dental implants. It will lead to recession of the jawbone and a collapsed and unattractive smile.
