What does treatment involve?

The implants are titanium screws placed into the jaw, to replace original roots. Depending on the treatment, you may need between 4 and 8 implants to secure each denture in place. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. The implants will need three to six months to heal and bond with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.

Temporary replacement teeth are usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement, which will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.

Once your jaw has healed, an abutment will be fixed to the implant to hold your denture in place. Abutments are produced in titanium, gold or porcelain, and can come as a standard fit or crafted specifically for you. These options offer a range of aesthetics results, depending on your requirements.

Dentures are then fitted on top, to replace your missing teeth. Your Tavistock dentist will carefully match the colour of your crown to your natural teeth.

What are the advantages?

  • Chewing function is improved – the denture is much more stable – reduced risk of digestive problems
  • No more concerns about embarrassing situations when a conventional denture may drop – improved self confidence
  • Better support for facial tissues – giving a more ‘youthful’ appearance
  • No need for unpleasant denture adhesives or pastes
  • The implant secured denture can be removed to ease cleaning around the implants
