Frequently Asked Questions
Patients considering dental implants are looking to replace missing or failing teeth. Full-mouth dental implants are a dental solution used to replace the entire upper or lower jaw’s worth of teeth, or even both jaws, so patients considering this option will need a large number of failing or missing teeth in order for this treatment to be considered.
If this is the case, as long as the patient has sufficient, quality bone and room in the jaw for the four implants, they will be a good candidate for full-mouth dental implants at Marlborough Dental Studio.
These factors will be confirmed by our experienced dental professionals when you come in for a consultation.
If your teeth are healthy or you are only missing a small number of natural teeth, other forms of dental implant will be more appropriate for you.
As with all dental procedures, including veneers, crowns, and bridges, dental implants will last the longest in patients who are stringent with their dental hygiene and look after their teeth.
If the patient complies with aftercare instructions and keeps their mouth and teeth healthy, full-mouth dental implants can last on average anywhere from 20-30 years - making them an excellent investment and providing great value for money.
Alongside brushing and flossing regularly, it is very important that all patients visit the clinic regularly for check-ups and seek advice from dentists if they have any concerns to keep their smile strong, healthy, and looking great.

For many patients, it is a common worry that full-mouth dental implants won’t look natural once they’re in position.
Unlike your natural teeth which will have aged with you over the years, dental implants will be shiny and new. However, to counteract this, there are several things we can do to help your natural teeth blend in with your implants!
- Whitening your natural teeth prior to fitting your full-mouth dental implant to ensure a seamless match, OR
- Choosing the correct colour match for the full-mouth dental implant if the patient does not want to, or cannot, whiten their natural teeth.
- Altering the shape of the dental implant to make sure it blends in well and maintains the symmetry of your smile and jaw.
Similarly, by using a full-mouth dental implant, your prosthetic teeth are much less likely to be noticed, because the prosthesis is not removable and is implanted directly into the jawbone - just like natural teeth.
Here at Marlborough Dental Studio, we know that the cost of dental care can be a source of worry.
