Achieve a New, Fully-Functioning Smile
Losing most or all of your teeth can be incredibly difficult, as everyday tasks, such as smiling, speaking, or chewing food, are no longer as easy as they once were. Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center offers a life-changing solution for extensive tooth loss by replacing an entire arch of upper and/or lower teeth through full-arch restoration.
We have six offices located around the central and eastern Michigan area to serve our patients. Contact us in Flint, Saginaw, Bay City, Owosso, Oxford, and Midland to experience excellent care from our team of expert surgeons. We look forward to helping our patients achieve a complete and healthy smile through full-arch restoration.
The Full-Arch Restoration Procedure
Full-arch restoration allows you to restore your entire arch of teeth using as few as four dental implants. This strong foundation supports a new arch of teeth that are custom-made to fit your mouth.
During your first visit, our oral surgeons will complete a thorough examination, take 3D scans of your mouth, and discuss your options for anesthesia. For the procedure, your surgeon will place four or more dental implants into your mouth that will fuse directly with your jawbone over the next several months. We will place a temporary prosthesis for you to wear in the meantime.
When the implant posts have fused with your jaw, you will receive your permanent fixed denture. Now you have a permanent, new set of teeth and can take pride in your smile.

Benefits of Full-Arch Restoration
Replacing all your teeth at once through full-arch restoration offers a variety of benefits over other more traditional tooth restoration options, such as bridges or dentures.
- Immediate Results. After implant placement, you will immediately be given a temporary set of replacement teeth, which allows you to enjoy a beautiful arch of teeth while your restorative dentist fabricates your final set of teeth.
- No Downtime. Replacing an entire arch in one procedure is cost-effective and minimizes healing time. Full-arch restoration can restore an entire arch of teeth with as little as one surgical procedure.
- Regain Confidence. You will be able to eat, smile, and laugh with confidence. The dental implant foundation that supports your new teeth will be secure, so there is no risk of your teeth falling out when you eat, speak, or laugh.
- Improve Oral Health. Following tooth loss, the bone begins to deteriorate around the missing tooth sites. Dental implants stimulate the bone just like your natural teeth would, which fights bone loss and preserves your oral health.
