Getting Your Confidence Back With Full Jaw Implants
If all of your teeth are missing, then you understand how difficult it can be to manage with a full denture. You may need to choose soft foods to chew and be careful when you are laughing that the denture does not move or fall out. A Full Jaw Implant Bridge is a permanent solution and completley replaces your denture forever. An implant bridge is fitted over implant fixtures, and it is kept in permanently, and you will brush and floss around it in a similar way as when you had natural teeth.
The Planning Process
Your free consultation is with our highly experienced Implant Surgeon, Dr Adam Glassford. At this appointment you will be able to discuss fully your concerns. They will assess your mouth, bone and gums and advise you about replacing your missing tooth with an implant. All your questions will be answered.
3D CT Scan
A 3D CT scan will be taken to assess your bone levels and allow precise planniing of your treatment. It is Gold Standard practice to provide a CT scan for implants, so that the position of your nerves and blood vessels can be precisely assessed for safe surgery.
Planning the Aesthetics
During treament planning, each tooth in your smile will be assessed in relation to each other, and in realtion to the propsed new implant crown. It will be discussed whether you are happy with the present colour of your teeth, or whether you would like to plan to whiten the remaining teeth prior to choosing the final implant crown colour.
The Implant Placement Process
Several dental implants can be fitted in 1-2 hours under local anaesthetic, normally under sedation. A temporary denture is ususally fitted immediately so you can continue life as normal. You may need painkillers after surgery. The implants will integrate naturally with your existing bone making it strong and secure.
Preparing the Implant Bridge
The gum is then normally allowed to heal for up to 12 weeks. After this time, detailed records are taken, the colour chosen and the bite checked. This information is sent our world class ceramist and used to construct the Full Jaw Bridge.
Fitting the Implant Bridge
The colour and layered translucency of the porcelain is created by hand and is unique for every patient. At your following appointment the new bridge is fitted securely onto the titanium implants.
