What Are Dental Implants?
If you have a missing tooth or more, implants are the ideal choice for you, as they:
This dental implant provides you with a false tooth root, allowing you to achieve a permanent and strong base for a realistic, porcelain crown. Dental Implants can also be more secure and comfortable, as they offer a firm base for dentures to be placed on.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are a removable prosthesis which is used to replace any missing teeth you may have. Made from acrylic or a combination of both metal and acrylic, the commonly referred ‘fake teeth’ can be the perfect solution for you.
There are different types of dentures, as a complete denture is fitted when all natural teeth are missing, as partial dentures are used to replace a few missing teeth.
A good set of dentures will be used as they will help you eat, function, speak and can improve a person’s appearance, which is why we are the denture specialists you can speak to, in order to find the perfect set for you.
What Does the Treatment Involve?
Implant treatment normally has two stages, as this includes:
Firstly, a small titanium post is gently placed into your jaw bone which allows the bone to gradually grow around to bond with the post.
After a few months, a replacement tooth is then attached to the implant. In some situations, it can be possible for temporary teeth to be attached to another implant at the time of the fitting.
How Long Does It Take to Make Dentures?
Each set of dentures can be different depending on the complexity, resulting in duration of the treatment to vary. However, after a diagnostic and initial visit of examination, there will be a selection of visits that will include:
This can take between 4 to 6 weeks to produce your set of dentures.
What to expect?
When you first place your new dentures in your mouth, they can feel very strange causing your speech to alter and practice eating with them. Therefore, can take you several weeks to start to feel normal again, allowing you to eat and speak with them in without even realising you have them in.
