Do I Need A Temporary Prosthesis After My Full Mouth Dental Implants Are Placed?

Full-mouth dental implants in Portland, OR, are a gold standard tooth replacement option for many reasons. With full-mouth dental implants, patients get a full arch of natural-looking new teeth that let them chew and speak comfortably. Right after their full-mouth dental implant procedure, many patients may wonder if they will have a full arch of aesthetically pleasing and functional new teeth.

Luckily, a temporary prosthesis can be placed right after the patient’s full-mouth dental implant procedure, giving them a functioning and aesthetically pleasing new smile right away.


Why Do I Need A Temporary Prosthesis After My Full Mouth Dental Implants Are Placed?

After the four or more dental implant posts are accurately placed during the patient’s surgery for full mouth dental implants in Portland, OR, the doctor can securely place the temporary prosthesis. The temporary prosthesis is made from acrylic (PMMA) material, so it sits lightly on the patients newly placed full mouth dental implant posts.

  • The temporary prosthesis is custom designed for each patient’s specific smile
  • Patients get an aesthetically pleasing full arch of new teeth
