The Only Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth
If you’re missing multiple teeth or are completely edentulous (lacking teeth), full mouth dental implants can improve your oral health and function, while restoring your smile and self-confidence. Full mouth dental implant solutions replace all your teeth on either the upper jaw, the lower jaw, or both. Dr. Robert Palmer has performed more than 1,000 dental implant surgeries at SLC Family Dental. Offering full mouth dental implants in Salt Lake City, UT is especially fulfilling because it reflects the philosophy he brings to his practice of clinical excellence combined with compassion. If you’re missing teeth and eating and daily life are bringing you down, you may be an ideal candidate for full arch dental implants.

Transform Your Smile in Three Streamlined Steps
Step 1: Consultation and Planning
We’ll start any treatment with a personalized consultation where you’ll meet with Dr. Palmer to discuss your functional and aesthetic goals for your final smile. In-house technology including intraoral scanners, digital implant software, and sophisticated 3D printers enable us to create a streamlined and customized solution. Pre-planning your surgery eliminates the possibility of error and ensures a high degree of precision. The end result will be durable and natural-looking teeth that fit perfectly.
Step Two: Guided Implant Surgery
We leverage digital surgical plans to custom design a surgical guide fabricated with our own 3D printer. Guided implant surgery results in greater precision and predictability, taking the guesswork out of the equation. Your dental implants are placed in areas of your jaw that have dense bone and positioned to optimize the fit of your final teeth. If necessary, we can usually extract any remaining teeth and perform bone grafting during the same appointment. If the dental implants have attained the desired primary stability, we attach your temporary bridge of teeth. This technique provides an efficient and comfortable surgery that can be completed in just a few hours. Digital impressions will also be taken at this time to help our dental lab design your final restoration. You’ll leave our office with an attached set of comfortable temporary teeth that function fully and look natural.
Step Three: Healing and Final Restoration
It generally takes three or more months for your treatment site to heal from surgery. During this time, the dental implants will integrate with your jawbone. Once they fuse, your dental implants function like natural tooth roots, providing a secure permanent support for your new fixed teeth. The final stage of the process is fitting you with your custom-made full arch bridge of teeth. We highly recommend state-of-the-art zirconia which is resistant to chips and fractures and available in custom shades and colors that replicate the natural appearance of healthy teeth and gums.
