Full Mouth Dental Implants and Other Solutions

Dentures have been available for many years and are still widely used today. They are an economical option and can generally produce good results. Some patients find them problematic, because they may slip out of place, irritate the gums, and limit the types of food you can eat.

Anchored in your mouth, implant supported dentures are a more secure option, allowing you to enjoy eating again. Full mouth dental implants are the gold standard in total tooth replacement. They last longer, look more natural, and require less maintenance than other methods. You’re just three steps away from a fully restored implant-based smile!

Rediscover Your Smile in Three Steps

Step 1: Individualized Consultation, Exam, and Planning
Dr. Barksdale will determine if you’re a candidate for full mouth dental implants during a personalized consultation. This provides him the opportunity to get to know your specific smile goals and conduct a comprehensive dental health exam. An intraoral scanner technology takes digital impressions of your teeth, no need to bite into a mouthful of unpleasant putty. In addition, detailed 3D images are captured of your mouth and jaws using low-radiation cone beam CT scanner. These images literally give him a complete picture of your dental health and enables him to individualize treatment to fit your specific concerns and needs.

Crucial to this planning phase is nSequence®, Chrome, 3D Diagnostix and Anatomage technologies that empowers Dr. Barksdale to produce a virtual test run of your implant procedure. This technology aids in the placement process outcome and predictability. In conjunction with these companies, customized surgical guides are fabricated for the procedure using in-house 3D printers. With these guides, he’s able to deliver faster, more precise results during your placement visit.
Step 2: Ultra-Precise Placement, High-Quality Implants
There are several options of anesthesia to place you in a pain-free, sleep-like state for the duration of your visit, including oral sedation and IV sedation which help relax you and you won’t feel or remember anything. Implant procedures normally include dental implant placement and bone grafting.

Customized surgical guides are placed over your gums which have pre-positioned holes that enable Dr. Barksdale to insert screw-like titanium implants into your jaw at just the right location, depth, and angle. Implants from the best-in-class manufacturers are used, including BioHorizons®, Nobel Biocare, Straumann®, Zimmer and Blue Sky Bio. Temporary provisional crowns are created in-house, and in most cases placed immediately when receiving your implants. Your temporary provisional crowns will give you both the appearance and function of healthy teeth.
Step 3: Final Restorations and Lasting Results
It typically takes three to six months for the bone to fully heal following dental implant surgery. During this period, your dental implants will bond with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. As a diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology (ABOI), Dr. Barksdale is highly qualified to oversee your recovery and deal with any issues that might arise, though that rarely happens. He is the only ABOI board certified specialist in Baton Rouge, and 1 of only 4 board certified specialists in the state of Louisiana.

The final restorative process begins after your dental implant(s) have healed. Proper care and maintenance will ensure a perfect smile for decades to come!
