Full Mouth Dental Implants


Since the concept of osseointegration (implant fusion with natural bone) was introduced in 1969, the field of implant dentistry has developed from an experimental innovation to a highly successful and accurate treatment for replacing missing teeth. A recent large-scale study on people with missing teeth revealed that 44.1% of males and 55.9% of females had dental implants, while numerous studies reported high levels of satisfaction and improved quality of life in patients that received this gold standard tooth replacement solution. Of course, not all dental implants are created equal, and it’s important to visit a clinician with a proven track record delivering superior results. If you’re looking for Full Mouth Dental Implants in Salem and Monmouth, OR, you’re in great hands at Hunsaker Dental. 

Our All-on-X, full mouth dental implants treatment protocol replaces an entire arch of teeth with just four dental implants that are strategically inserted in the back of the jawbone, utilizing more available bone for a sturdy foundation for your new teeth to set on. These four dental implants are strong and provide optimal support for your permanent smile.

Full Mouth Dental Implants VS Traditional Dentures

Traditionally if you have missing or failing teeth, dentures were your best and virtually only solution. With modern technology and advanced strides in the dental field, traditional dentures have been proven to be an outdated option when it comes to restoring missing teeth as the disadvantages outweigh the benefits. It’s no doubt that dentures are the more cost-effective option for patients looking to restore their smiles without breaking the bank, however the disadvantages of dealing with messy adhesives, the worry of your dentures slipping out of place or falling out and the possibility of losing upward of 75% of your taste due to dentures blocking the roof of your mouth has cost patients in the long run. Without being secured in the jawbone, dentures can’t support the jawbone properly causing bone deterioration and the creation of sunken facial appearances from jawbone loss.


Step 1: Initial Consultation

During the initial one-hour evaluation, our implant coordinator will meet with you to discuss your smile goals. Digital images are taken with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology and an iTero® scanner. We also shoot a short video, take preliminary measurements, and select tooth shades that complement your facial aesthetics. These different elements are used to create a smile design preview that we’ll share at your next appointment. You’ll learn about Dr. Hunsaker’s background, as well as our technology and facility, and you’ll receive essential information about the All-on-X process. You’ll also receive an accurate estimate for the cost of tooth replacement in Monmouth and Salem, OR. Then you’ll meet with our dentists to review your diagnostic imaging and confirm your treatment strategy.
