Enjoy a Smile for Life with Full Mouth Dental Implants
Whether you have missing teeth due to gum disease, trauma, severe tooth decay, or a genetic condition, this impacts more than your smile and self-esteem. Tooth loss can affect your speech, ability to chew food, and the integrity of the underlying jawbone. When left untreated, tooth loss can cause shifting of adjacent teeth and bacteria growth that leads to decay in remaining teeth and gum disease. When you entrust FaceLipsTeeth (FLT) with your smile, you’ll quickly see what sets our practice apart from the rest. Dr. Mike Elvis Calderón has placed 10,000 dental implants with a 99.4%+ success rate and is dedicated to furthering his already vast implant knowledge through advanced training. He founded the Calderón Institute in 2010 to share his implant skills with fellow dentists. Dr. Calderón is a Diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantology and American Board of Oral Implantology and a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, Academy of Osseointegration, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Comparing Fixed Teeth vs. Removable
The two basic options for tooth replacement are fixed and removable. Based on advanced training and experience using various advanced implant technologies over the last few decades, Dr. Calderón firmly believes the All-on-X protocol delivers the greatest support for fixed or removable teeth with superior results than the popular All-on-4 approach. He uses RITTER™ Implants made in Germany of “Grade 5” natural titanium alloy that goes through a special sandblasting and etching process. These high-quality implants enhance bone strengthening due to early implant contact, increase stability, shorten the healing phase for more rapid fusion with the jawbone (osseointegration), and provide high predictability and immediate load capabilities.

To ensure creating and delivering the highest quality full mouth dental implants in West Islip and Oceanside, NY, Dr. Calderón handles all phases of care. As part of this process, he continually assesses new implant technologies and only selects implant systems and materials proven to deliver superior long-term durability, strength, and aesthetics. Dr. Calderón also has expertise placing zygomatic and pterygoid dental implants. By offering these specialized dental implants at FLT, edentulous patients in Oceanside and West Islip, NY with severe bone loss can receive the same life-changing benefits afforded by dental implants as people with healthier bone. These dental implants are more challenging to place and require in-depth anatomical knowledge and a high degree of artistry, therefore only a small percentage of practices in the U.S. offer them.
Delivering Transformative Smiles in Three Phases
Phase One: Consultation and Treatment Planning
At your first consultation for full arch dental implants in West Islip or Oceanside, NY, Dr. Calderón will perform a complete evaluation, discuss all the clinical phases of the treatment process, and provide a cost estimate. A CBCT scan will be taken to evaluate your entire mouth and jawbone. The imaging machine rotates entirely around your head and captures about 150-200 images from different angles in less than a minute. These are compiled into a single 3D image that Dr. Calderón uses to create personalized full arch dental implants to fit your unique dental anatomy.
Phase Two: All-on-X Implant Surgery
All-on-X is a carefully designed system that builds on decades of dental implant technology. Dr. Calderón places dental implants at a precise angle and depth in your jawbone to ensure long-term support for your new bridge of teeth. Implants are placed at an angle in areas of your jaw with the densest bone. This protocol maximizes the use of existing bone, therefore the need for bone grafting is often eliminated. Because all the implants share the force of biting and chewing, this enhances bone growth around all of them and provides a more secure support for the final restoration.
Phase Three: Healing and Final Restoration
It takes three to four months for dental implants to fully integrate with your jawbone. During the healing phase, you’ll have time to decide if you like the color, shape, fit, and bite of your temporary teeth. Dr. Calderón can make any needed adjustments to ensure your permanent teeth perfectly fit your needs. Hand-crafted by skilled lab technicians, the final zirconia full arch denture is designed to complement your facial aesthetics, skin tone, and lip line. Unlike porcelain, a zirconia bridge is strong enough to withstand stress to tooth surfaces caused by grinding and clenching. Aesthetically, zirconia has a translucency and color comparable to that of natural teeth.
