Dental Implants for people with missing back teethYour options to replace all of your teeth with dental implants

If you are in the situation where you have few or none of your natural teeth, there are several options open to you.

You can have dental implants that hold in place your plastic denture – this is the most cost-effective way to replace your missing teeth.

The other extreme is that you can have fixed teeth that are screwed into your dental implants. These can be made from a variety of materials and made to look as natural as you would like.

Are fixed or removable teeth right for you?

Other than the cost, removable teeth on dental implants have a number of advantages.

They are easy to clean.

Your dental implants will only last if you are able to clean them effectively.

With removable teeth on dental implant, you are able to unclip your teeth and easily clean your implants and teeth with a standard toothbrush

With fixed teeth, we recommend the use of water picks and superfloss to clean your implants.

Removable Teeth on Dental Implants

Removable teeth on dental implant are the most cost-effective way that you can replace your missing teeth, and enjoy the foods you used to love eating, without thinking if your teeth can take it!

The dental implants provide a stable platform for your teeth to clip into. As the biting forces are not going straight onto your gums, this solution is not going to cause you rubbing pains like some removable dentures can.

The dentures are specially designed to house a clip that fits the dental implants. This means that you are able to apply much more natural biting pressures when eating, and hence you can eat hard foods, including apples – without cutting them up.

The clips minimise any movement, and the greater the number of dental implants you have, the more stable your teeth will be.

Fixed Teeth Solutions

Fixed teeth on your dental implants are much more complex to make and hence are often more expensive.

Fixed teeth can be made from plastic or ceramic, depending on your personal preference, we can go over the advantages of both materials.

In general, the plastic is easier to repair and looks pretty good. It can wear over time, but recent advances in this material have nearly made it as strong as porcelain.

Porcelain teeth are all individualised and look very natural because of that. They are stronger and hard wearing. If they were to ever break, then it is easy to make a temporary tooth and have a single new tooth made – rather than sending the whole thing back.

Another advantage of the fixed solutions is that they can be made quite a bit thinner than the removable solutions, meaning less bulk, and more of the roof of your mouth will be free.

Teeth In A Day

Teeth in a day is an exciting solution where we can remove all your unhealthy teeth, and place implant, and let you leave the clinic with fixed teeth on your dental implants.

The advantage is that here there is no temporary phase where you need to wear removable dentures.

To ensure safety during this treatment, we plan the treatment digitally, so we know exactly where your dental implants go.

We will arrange for a lab technician to be there on the day, to provide you with your fixed teeth to leave with.

After a suitable healing period, we can provide you with high quality fixed teeth that can have any level of customisation in them.
