DenturesDentures are prosthetic teeth, which have been used for decades to replace missing natural teeth. Dentures come in two forms: partial dentures, which are used to replace a small number of teeth and full dentures, which are used to replace an entire arch. Dentures are usually made from acrylic and plastic and we use the highest quality materials and the latest techniques to produce perfectly-fitting, natural looking dentures.
Dental implantsDental implants work as a more modern tooth replacement treatment and they are suitable for patients of all ages. They can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. The aim of an implant is to replace the tooth root. Like a natural root, the implant lies in the bone tissue and this allows optimum stability for the new tooth. Once the implant has merged with the bone, it can be connected to a bridge, crown or denture to complete the replacement. Implants are built to last for many years and they are currently the most durable option on the market.
Which one is best for me?There are many factors to consider when deciding which treatment is best for you. These may include your dental needs, your budget, treatment time and your preferences in terms of aesthetics and maintenance. Implants last a lot longer than dentures, they are easier to look after, they produce more natural looking aesthetics and provide greater stability than dentures, but treatment can take a long time and implants are expensive. Denture treatment is faster and more affordable. When you have a consultation, we can weigh up the pros and cons with you and go through the ins and outs of each option to help you decide.
What are dental implants?Dental implants are a modern solution for tooth loss. The idea is that the implant, which is made from titanium and resembles a small screw, replaces the root of the missing tooth. Once the implant has been placed inside a socket in the jaw bone, it will then start to integrate into the bone tissue, ensuring optimum support for the new tooth. Once the integration process is complete, the restoration is attached and this serves to replace the visible part of the tooth. Implants are a long-term solution for tooth loss and they are also incredibly versatile, which makes them an excellent choice for patients of all ages with diverse dental needs. Implants are compatible with bridges, dentures and crowns, so they can be used in the place of one single tooth or multiple missing teeth.
How long does treatment take?Implant treatment usually takes between 3 and 9 months. However, we do offer rapid treatment solutions, including All-on-4. When you have your consultation, your dentist can discuss different options with you.
What are the alternatives to implant treatment?Other options for tooth replacement treatment include dentures and dental bridges. Bridges tend to last up to 15 years, while dentures need adjusting on a regular basis to fit the changing contours of the mouth. Dental implants are the closest match to natural teeth and they last a lot longer. However, they are more expensive.
