Same Day Teeth On Dental Implants
Are you concerned about wearing a denture? Do you feel that you are going to gag every time you have it in your mouth? We have a solution for you called ‘fast and fixed’.
Let me explain. Quite often we will see people with some teeth missing, or with teeth breaking down, or they’re just aware that their teeth aren’t going to last, or they have a denture which they are struggling with. You know that you need treatment, you need a solution, but having to wear a denture can be the biggest challenge of this.
People manage very well having the implants placed and throughout the entire treatment, but the big bugbear is having to wear a short-term denture.
Here’s Clinical Director, Mark Skimming, to explain
Fast and Fixed treatment is a fantastic solution. After all the planning and discussions are finished, we bring you into the practice in the morning and we put some implants in place, generally between 4 and 6. That part of the treatment is completed over 90 minutes, or 2 hours. In the afternoon you come back in and we fit some teeth into place for you.
The big benefit of this over wearing a denture, is that there’s no coverage to the palate over this area so you’re not having that problem of feeling you’re going to gag, or that there’s something moving about.
Not having to wear a denture from the early stages is a real benefit. You can chew your food, you can get on with your life and not worry about the treatment you’re having done.
To begin with we will fit a temporary bridge, this would usually last about 4 months. You can then look forward to getting a new bridge which has been through the full smile design process and really gives you what you want, allowing you to continue to chew, not have a denture, and just get on with your life with the appearance that you want to achieve.
