What do full mouth dental implants feel like?
Full mouth implants do not feel like natural teeth, but they look great and chew food extremely well. Implants do not have nerves. They cannot feel pressure, temperature or pain. That may be a good or thing depending on the person. Full mouth implants just feel different plain and simple. People who have dentures or a mouth full of bad teeth will fall in love with how full mouth implants feel, look and function.
And the best part about dental implants-they do not rot, get cavities, or ever need root canals. Implants are also much less likely to break than natural teeth. And if that is not enough, implants are not susceptible to gum disease. But do not rush into removing all your natural teeth, if they can be fixed. Consider the following prior to getting a full set of implant teeth:
- The cost of fixing your natural teeth. How long the same repairs may last. Future dental expenses.

Do Full Mouth Implants Feel Comfortable?
Yes dental implants do feel comfortable after a month or two. At first, dental implants feel strange, because they are different than natural teeth. Natural teeth have spaces between them. Full mouth implants are all one piece. Full mouth implants are constructed as a full set of teeth that is one piece. Full mouth implants also replace some amount of lost gum tissue. The feeling is different to the tongue and lips due the difference in material and shape of the new teeth and gums. All in all, most people accept full mouth implants in a positive way, but no doubt they feel different than natural teeth.
Do Full Mouth Implants Feel Better Than Dentures?
Yes, full mouth implants feel much better than dentures. Denture teeth feel like plastic. Dentures are also more bulky and cover the palate and roof of the mouth. Full mouth implants are much thinner and are made out of zirconia and porcelain. Zirconia feels very similar to the enamel of natural teeth. Zirconia is even smoother and more comfortable than natural teeth in some cases. Full mouth implants do not cover the palate. Dentures come in and out of the mouth and are not very stable. Full mouth implants are permanently installed into the mouth and feel much stronger and more stable. Dentures will slide around during speech and eating. Full mouth implants have no movement at all even when biting as hard as you can into an apple. There is really not comparison.
How Long Before Full Dental Implants Feel Normal?
Full dental implants will feel very different than natural teeth at first, but usually after 1 to 3 months they will feel like a new normal. So after 1-3 months full mouth implants feel totally “normal” to most people.
