DIEM full-arch tooth replacement is a unique dental implant procedure that offers patients in need of a full-arch restoration a faster procedure and healing time at a fraction of the cost of other replacement options. During the procedure, Drs. Lieblick and Rehrer carefully insert between four and six dental implants in the patient’s upper or lower jaw, which are attached to an entire arch of beautiful white teeth during the same procedure. You can go to sleep with your current teeth and wake up with brand new replacements!
Am I a candidate for the DIEM procedure?
Many patients who are unable to receive traditional replacement options, such as a fixed bridge, are still able to undergo DIEM full-arch replacement. If you are on the verge of losing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth, have already lost these teeth, or wear a prosthesis such as dentures, you may be a candidate for this unique procedure. If you think you may be a candidate or want to learn more information about it, we encourage you to call and schedule an initial consultation at our office.
Why choose DIEM to replace my full arch of teeth?
When you have lost the majority of your teeth, options such as removable dentures or numerous implants are extremely expensive and can affect an extremely time-consuming restoration and healing process. DIEM full-arch replacement provides an alternative, cost-effective replacement option to diminish these problems and restore both function and aesthetics to your mouth.
Because the entire surgical procedure can usually be completed in one visit, the amount of post-surgical discomfort that many patients experience with other replacement options is decreased. Additionally, this procedure is more cost-effective than replacing an entire arch of teeth with individual implants and allows patients to solve both their functional and aesthetic problems much more quickly.
There are three primary benefits of DIEM full-arch replacement:
- Increased Flexibility. The new replacement teeth can be attached to the implants during the same appointment and avoid the delay that accompanies many other surgical procedures used to replace teeth. This allows patients to start enjoying the benefits of their new arch of teeth right away.
- Increased Functionality. The DIEM procedure anchors implants at an angle that provides the highest ratio of implant-to-bone contact, ensuring that the replacement teeth are secure and supported.
- Improved Clinical Results. Unlike other procedures, the DIEM does not involve the grinding down of healthy teeth to cement a bridge or rely on the strength of any existing teeth to carry the burden of a bridge. Instead, this procedure utilizes special techniques for implant placement, ensuring a rapid recovery. These implants will fully support the weight and function of the replacement set of teeth.
