DIOnavi Full Arch Procedure

The DIOnavi Full Arch Procedure has all the advantages of an implant-supported denture but uses a minimally invasive digital technology to complete the procedure faster, with quicker recovery, less pain and a shorter operation time. This procedure also takes advantage of your preexisting denture, permanently securing it in place with a fixed prosthesis, so patients can continue speaking, smiling and even eating without trouble on the same day as the procedure.

When you come in for your DIOnavi consultation with our dentist, he will explain the procedure to you and will use 3D intraoral scanning to create a personalized, computer-guided treatment plan designed specifically for your smile. This allows for a quick, minimally invasive implant placement and the creation of temporary teeth for you to wear as you leave the office. Once you come back in for your permanent teeth to be placed, you are ready to take on the world!

Dentures are one of the removable restoration options our team offers, and they are designed to replace multiple missing teeth of a full dental arch. In this way, they are able to restore your oral functions and give you a beautiful smile once again. Depending on your specific needs, our dentist will recommend either a complete or partial denture.

For patients looking to replace a full arch of teeth, we can provide complete dentures. For some patients who need to replace all of their teeth, we can design and prepare prosthetic teeth for both arches, and we may suggest using a denture adhesive to ensure a stable placement.

For patients who need to replace multiple, but not all, teeth in an arch, we can provide partial dentures. These restorations are often anchored to your remaining natural teeth using a framework of clasps that secure the denture in place.

Whichever restoration you choose, our team will ensure your denture fits comfortably, securely and beautifully in your mouth and that the denture effectively improves your ability to eat, speak and smile. Dentures often enhance your overall appearance by restoring your natural facial volume as well.

While dentures are often a good option for patients due to their appearance, function and affordability, please be aware that our dentist and team do not consider dentures to be a long-term solution for your oral health and smile. Your natural teeth and tooth roots work to stimulate your supporting bone and keep it healthy. Dentures, unfortunately, do not perform these same functions, and the long-term use of dentures can eventually cause bone deterioration, changes to your mouth and other damage. The ideal solution for replacing missing teeth is dental implants, as this type of prosthetic replaces both the crowns and the roots of your teeth to perform all the same functions as your original teeth. In the case of multiple missing teeth, a good compromise can be reached with implant-supported dentures, which provide all the benefits of implants along with the affordability of dentures.
