Fixed Teeth in a Day in York at Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio
All-on-4 dental implant treatment technique
If you have loose or missing teeth, wear uncomfortable dentures or have to avoid certain foods, then our Teeth in a Day dental implant treatment will transform your life.
On the same day that the dental implants are placed, you are fitted with a fantastic set of fixed natural-looking temporary teeth. This means you’re never left with a gap at any stage and won’t need to wear dentures while the healing takes place. After three months, the temporary teeth are replaced with permanent ones and your new teeth will not only feel fantastic they will look fabulous as well.
Normally, in order to replace all missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw a patient is required to have 6 to10 dental implants. With the all-on-4 system, 2 implants at the back of the jaw are placed at an angle of 45 degrees enabling longer implants to be placed in this area for greater stability. The 2 implants at the front of the jaw are placed at 90 degrees. These 4 implants are then braced together by a fixed bridge, which is screwed into the implants and held permanently in place.
It’s possible to retain and steady conventional complete dentures with tooth implants for a more secure and comfortable fit. The simplest method of doing this is to use a press-stud style attachment on dental implants known as a locator abutment.
We’ll need to place 2 or 4 implants in the lower jaw and a minimum of 4 implants in the upper jaw. The press-stud attachments allow the dentures to be pressed into the mouth and clicked into place. You may still feel some slight movement, but it’s a world away from wearing a complete denture in the traditional way. Secure and stable, it’s a great way to discover a new-found confidence if you struggle with wearing dentures.
