“For many of my patients, missing teeth or loose dentures is a real problem. Being unable to smile without embarrassment or to chew certain foods can really affect their daily lives. As a clinician, I have seen the dramatic and often life changing benefits of dental implant treatment.” – Dan Collins
For those looking for an alternative to uncomfortable and inconvenient dentures or bridges, dental implants from same day smiles could be the perfect solution.
Our dental surgeons can permanently replace two or more teeth with this revolutionary surgical procedure.
Choosing dental implants over alternative temporary solutions has several benefits:
- They look and feel just like real teeth.
- Because we use the latest dental technology and the highest quality materials, dental implants won’t hold you back – they function just like real teeth. You can eat virtually anything you choose.
- Implants are permanent, unlike dentures bridges.
- Your natural tooth structure is maintained – no preparation is needed for adjacent teeth.
- Implants don’t cause bone loss. This is a common problem with bridges and dentures.
What does the multiple tooth replacement procedure involve?
The procedure we carry out atsame day smiles™ to replace multiple teeth with implants is relatively straightforward. The treatment is quick, painless, and our patients often experience a speedy recovery.
How long the procedure will take depends on how many teeth you need to have replaced. In some circumstances, more than one tooth can be fixed to a single implant. This all depends on the location of the teeth. If a full arch of replacement teeth is required, this can be done with 4-6 implants.
The initial consultation
A same day smiles™ surgeon will determine exactly how many implants will be required, at your initial consultation. After taking the necessary x-rays, diagnostics and scans, your dentist will provide a detailed treatment plan. Any questions you have about the treatment will be answered at the initial consultation.
The treatment will involve the surgical implementation of implants into the jawbone. We will then allow between 2-6 months for the jaw and gums to heal naturally. During the healing time, you will be provided with a temporary bridge or denture.
The same day smiles™ laboratory will then begin work on creating your natural-looking porcelain crowns or multiple-unit porcelain bridge. We’ll ensure that your new teeth match up to your existing adjacent teeth (if applicable), meaning they’ll look natural and feel incredibly comfortable.
When the implants have fully healed, your new teeth will be fitted to the implants.
Why should you choose to replace missing teeth?
The disadvantages of missing teeth may not be immediately apparent, yet the long-term effects are often noticeable. Perhaps the biggest problem is that missing teeth causes additional stress and strain on existing teeth, which can dramatically reduce their lifespan.
Bone loss is a big problem with missing teeth. With multiple missing teeth, the jaw structure is worn down, which can have a dramatic effect on the overall structure of the face. There will often be a lack of support for facial features such as lips and cheeks, resulting in a sunken appearance. This can lead to the effect of premature ageing.
Why choose implants over a bridge or dentures?
There are several benefits of having dental implants fitted, as opposed to choosing more traditional methods, such as dentures and bridges. Dental implants are an incredibly popular choice, as they are a permanent, comfortable solution, and it is as close as you can get to having real teeth.
Implants Vs Bridges
Replacing missing teeth with a bridge requires preparatory work to be carried out by your dentist on your existing adjacent teeth, as these will be used as anchors to secure the bridge. This can damage the existing tooth structure and dramatically reduce the tooth’s lifespan.
Dental implants will only benefit existing teeth, as they will alleviate some of the pressure imposed on existing teeth.
Implants Vs Dentures
Dentures are notoriously uncomfortable and impractical. Because they are removable, they often slip, which can be irritating, painful and highly embarrassing. Loose dentures can cause problems with speech and won’t allow you to eat certain foods.
As with bridges, dentures require preparatory work to be carried out on existing teeth to make room for the denture. Again, this can damage the existing tooth structure and reduce the lifespan of existing teeth.
Dental implants are a permanent solution, that won’t affect your speech or limit you on the foods that you can eat.
What is the cost of replacing multiple teeth with dental implants?
The cost of dental implants depends on several factors, namely the number of teeth being replaced and the type of restoration used.
