Replace All of Your Teeth in York
What is the Solution?
If you have loose or missing teeth, wear uncomfortable dentures or have to avoid certain foods like Richard, 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 with a fantastic set of fixed natural looking temporary teeth, meaning you are never left with a gap at any stage and you do not have to wear your denture 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.
Does it hurt?
We will numb your gums so that you do not feel any discomfort. We can offer sedation for anxious or nervous patients. Afterwards over the counter painkillers are normally enough to control any discomfort even after extensive treatment.
What will the new teeth look like?
It is of the upmost importance that you feel confident and comfortable in your new smile. We will work with you to achieve the unique result that you are looking for. We always allow you to see your smile before it is fitted. Additionally we can typically provide you with the opportunity to preview your smile in your own mouth before any work is carried out.
Do I need to be without teeth for anytime?
No. The All on 4 technique is often described as Teeth in a Day. We normally do the surgery in the morning and fit the new teeth at the end of the day
Are the teeth removable?
No. The teeth are screwed into place. They can only be removed by the dentist for repair and maintenance.
Will the procedure be costly?
Each stage stands alone in that you do not go to the next stage of treatment until you are stable and comfortable. This ensures that we go at your own pace and treatment costs can, therefore, be spread over any length of treatment. As discussed we do have 0% finance available, to allow you to follow the ideal therapy plan.
I am still not sure I am suitable and don't want to pay for a consultation. We advise patients to take advantage of our Complimentary Consultation. You can talk through the treatment with Dr Harrison and he can answer any questions you may have, and let you know if there are other treatments that might be better for you.
Implant Retained Dentures
It is possible to provide assistance to retain and steady conventional complete dentures. The simplest method of doing this is to use a ‘press stud’ style attachment on dental implants known as a locator abutment.
It is necessary to place two or four implants in the lower jaw and a minimum of four implants in the upper jaw.
The implants have a ‘press stud’ style attachment included with the opposite end of the attachment within the denture. This allows the dentures to be pressed into the mouth and ‘clicked’ in place. Although there can still be slight movement with this restoration it is a world away from a complete denture and offers security, stability and confidence for patients who experience difficulty wearing dentures.
The third way we treat patients who have lost or losing their remaining teeth is by using fixed implant supported porcelain bridges. These custom made bridges can be adapted to nearly every situation, usually 6-8 implants will be needed in each jaw to support this bridge. As a result not all patients are suitable, however they still represent the gold standard in tooth replacement and offer the patient the most natural life-like feel to their replacement teeth.
