Dental Implant FAQs


What is the difference between traditional and full arch dental implants?

Traditional implant treatments involve replacing one unhealthy tooth with one single implant. In comparison, full arch implants only require several implants to stabilize the entire jaw. Full-arch implants don’t need as much bone density for the treatment to be successful.

What is the recovery time after getting full arch dental implants?

Allowing your mouth and body to heal is essential, or complications may arise. That said, most patients feel better after approximately 2 weeks. The days immediately after the procedure are when any uncomfortable symptoms like swelling and bleeding will fade. Eating softer foods, slowly getting back into exercise, and visiting your dentist for a checkup will help you recover quickly.

Are full arch dental implants worth it?

Yes, they are! Implants can give you back control of your oral health. When placed by a qualified dentist, your results will be successful. Implants allow you to speak clearly, bite and chew without experiencing pain, and help sustain your facial profile. Contact Regency Square Dental to learn more about the benefits of this treatment.

What is the difference between a traditional denture and an implant-secured denture?

Traditional dentures rely upon suction to stay in place. The appliance rests on your gums and is made to fit your oral dimensions. Patients can also acquire dentures that are supported by Implants. The screws prevent the dentures from falling out of place and will not need to be replaced.

What is a "guided dental implant?"

Guided dental implant surgery is a contemporary approach to traditional implantation. Digital technology, such as a CBCT scanner, aids dentists and oral surgeons in identifying the best location in the jawbone for each screw. This increases treatment precision and is less invasive. Guided implant surgery is recommended for patients who require more than one implant.

Is guided dental implant surgery safe?

Yes, it is safe! Guided surgery helps dentists to follow a more detailed treatment plan. Traditionally, they rely mainly on x-rays, which do not offer as much clarity as the visual information gathered and generated by a digital scanner. Multiple angles of your mouth are provided, increasing success, and ensuring your procedure is done quicker and goes smoothly.

What is the Yomi Robot?

The Yomi Robot is a dental robot that assists with surgery, particularly dental implant surgery. It is an FDA-approved method and has been “working with” dentists since 2016. Yomi keeps track of patient vitals, ensures each implant is placed with accuracy, and the design is comfort for dentists to use. Yomi makes the procedure go quick, meaning that implants can be provided on the same day as opposed to coming back for a couple of appointments.
