When teeth have been lost, whether that is because of dental disease or trauma then you may well consider dental implants as a solution and as a way of boosting your confidence. The dental experts at Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic have the solution for those patients who have lost their teeth, whatever the reason, either with single tooth replacement, upper or lower jaw tooth replacements or all on four where upper and lower teeth can be replaced or the inserting of six dental implants and the fixing of teeth on to them.
Suffering and loss of teeth can be a huge blow to confidence and can even alter our face shape making us look older and it can affect our ability to eat and to speak. The experts at our clinic offer all on 4 dental implants to patients who want to have the closest thing to their natural teeth, with dental implants. The implants will be fixed to metal posts made of titanium that will act as the new roots for the teeth that will be fixed to the implants.
Both represent options for undergoing tooth replacement in one day. Treatment will be aimed at people who suffer from missing teeth and want a procedure that is carried out in one day. The four and the six refer to the number of implants to which the eventual bridge can be fixed. This is a treatment that is popular with people who do not want a prolonged period without fixed teeth. We know that this is not the option that everyone will choose but if someone is a suitable candidate for all on four or all on six, it can mean that they enjoy a new confidence with a minimum of disruption to lifestyle, diet or speech.
For either all on 4 or the all on 6 procedure the advice for after-care is straightforward. You will be advised to brush your teeth as you would your natural teeth and floss as well. Your dentist will give you any specific advice.
The potentially life changing experience of having upper and lower dental implants cannot be underestimated. People have reported how much more confident they felt after having their teeth replaced in this way. Only specialist dentists who have trained in this area and developed the very high level of expertise and skill that is required, carry out this treatment. The price that you are likely to pay will reflect this and at the moment the price for a full mouth on four dental implants at our surgery starts at £12.000.
For teeth-in-a-day, Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic is a leading clinic in London where unsightly gaps and many other issues are dealt with, restoring confidence to our patients.
The all on 4 dental implant treatment holds an entire arch of teeth. Traditionally around 10 implants would be used for a complete arch. All on four however only requires four implants because the implants placed at the back of the mouth are angled. This faster treatment is less invasive than the traditional implants.
The surgery for either all on 4 or all on 6 treatments will be virtually painless although it is quite common to have a little soreness and swelling that will pass within a couple of days. Most patients report that they can resume their daily routine in just one to two days after they have had surgery. Patients also often notice an initial slight lisp that will resolve once they have got used to the newly fitted teeth.
All on 4 dental implant treatment includes:
Following that the teeth will be fitted in just one appointment, whether or not tooth extractions required. You will be able to go home the very same day with a new attractive set of teeth.
