Sore gums, speech problems, and general discomfort can all occur using traditional dentures. The investment of time looking after dentures, cleaning them, and buying products to secure them is a thing of the past. Dentures can now be attached to dental implants, removing many of the traditional burdens and potential downsides Dental implants require a similar amount of bone to a normal tooth and if a tooth has been missing for a while, the gum bone can become thinner which means a bone graft can be necessary to provide a secure position for a dental implant.Dentures generally need between six and 10 implants for a full arch of teeth.
Halley Street Dental Studio in the heart of London offer the latest in a long lasting solution to the denture wearers. The system is called All on 4 Dental Implants and as the name suggests, uses just four implants. There are many benefits to using only four dental implant; The likelihood of needing a bone graft is greatly reduced, speeding up treatment and saving money for the patient. A temporary denture is fitted on the same day as the All on 4 implants, giving an instant and natural smile
How Does It Work?
The dental implants are evenly spaced with two at the back and two at the front. Implants at the front are vertical and the implants at the back and diagonal, sloping at 45°. This layout allows optimum firmness which lasts for years. Because there are fewer implants, treatment is not only quicker, it is less intrusive and allows faster healing. Once the All on 4 implants have settled, usually over a six-month period, the first denture can be replaced with the final denture. This gives the gum bone time to strengthen around the implants, an opportunity for gum tissue to settle, and finally for the new dentures to be secured for many years to come.
