Replace a Full Mouth of teeth with individual implants, crowns and bridges
A full mouth of teeth can be replaced by placing 20-24 individual implants, implant teeth crowns and bridges. Our practice is located in Burtonsville near Silver Spring and Columbia Maryland. This full mouth implant solution is the best solution because it most closely mimics the look, feel and function of natural teeth. The implant teeth are small, smooth and thin and a comparable profile to natural teeth. The full mouth solution is permanent and very durable. The teeth are cleaned like natural teeth with the same brushing and flossing strategies. This full mouth solution of tooth implants is also the most expensive because it involves expensive zirconia crowns and a lot of teeth implants and implant abutments. zirconia-ceramic metal free implants can be uses for this option.

The benefits of this full mouth dental implant alternative are:
- very thin and comfortable teeth
- teeth that function and feel like natural teeth
- hygiene is the same as natural teeth with the same brushing and flossing as natural teeth
- durable teeth that do not stain or discolor over time
- teeth stay permanently in the mouth
- very minimal bone loss since there are lots of implants for bony support
Cons of Full mouth of individual implants and crowns:
- very expensive
- lots of implant surgery and possibly bone grafting with PRF
- requires lots of bone for all the implants
Very few patients will do this case due to the cost. Some may also not have the bone and also not willing to do extensive bone grafting. Platelet Rich Fibrin PRF dental implant technique has made grafting a lot easier and more predictable. This full mouth option will definitely not work for people who have been missing all their teeth for a long time. All on 4 implants is a more affordable option and the implant teeth also stay permanently in the mouth. Removable implant dentures is a very affordable full mouth implant options, but the teeth are not placed permanently in the mouth.
Many people cannot get this option because it requires having enough bone everywhere in the jaws where all the implants need to be placed. All on 4 on the other hand only requires bone in 4-6 sites per jaw where the implants need to be placed. Lots of bone grafting can cost the patient multiple surgeries, increased expense and treatment times up to a year prior to case completion. With new bone grafting technologies such as I-prf, L-prf, ozone and conventional grafting products, many more cases are now able to be done.
