If you are missing all of your teeth or your dentures are becoming uncomfortable and tiring, we have a fast, efficient and comfortable solution that will give you a second chance at the feeling of a mouth full of stable, permanent teeth.
The so-called ‘Teeth is a day’ is a revolutionary and highly advanced method that allows a full mouth of new teeth to rest with complete, proven stability on only four implants over a 24 hour period.
Here’s what it involves:
State-of-the-art technologies such as Cone Beam CT Scanners are used to plot the location of just four or more implants in your jaw. These implants form a sturdy base and secure a full arch of permanent teeth. They look and function just like natural teeth. Within 24 hours you will have a beautiful, natural, functional smile!
At our clinic, we understand the impact a smile can have. The main benefit of this immediate loading procedure is to allow a strong, durable and aesthetic temporary full arch bridge to be placed on the day of or day after surgery. This bridge is specially reinforced with a custom made Columbus bar which prevents movement or flexing of the teeth which could be transmitted to the maturing implants. Our protocol dramatically reduces the risks of complications that can be associated with more inexperienced operators carrying out these complex procedures.
This temporary bridge remains in place until the implants have fully matured and it is then swapped for the more long-term permanent implant bridge. This allows you to have a seamless transition from losing your teeth and can in some cases mean that dentures are not needed at any stage.
We also offer sedation options for nervous patients. Dentistry doesn’t have to be frightening! With modern sedatives, many patients will hardly know they’ve been in surgery.
From my first visit to Citygate Specialist Dental Clinic, I knew I had made the best choice of dentists to care for my needs. Having lost my teeth at a young age and enduring dentures for over 40 years, I wanted to have the most up to date dental care in a safe and professional environments. Seamus and Jennifer provided excellent care and my implants are perfect. Jezelle, Elaine and all at reception are always welcoming.
