What is a dental implant?

For patients with missing teeth, dental implants are a wonderful and often life-changing solution.

Just like natural teeth, dental implants are made up of two parts – one to replace the root and the other to replace the tooth or teeth. 

The implant itself acts as the new tooth root; it is a medical-grade titanium screw that is surgically placed into your jawbone. It integrates with the bone, so it is a very strong and secure base for the new restoration to be placed on. We will create your new, highly aesthetic implant-retained dentures to fit perfectly onto your implants. 

Why would I want a denture that is implant-retained?

One of the problems that some denture wearers can experience, is that there is a lack of physical retention, or there is nothing left for the denture to hold on to.

This can cause problems such as your dentures slipping and moving when you speak or smile, clicking noises when you talk or eat, as well as difficulty eating. An ill-fitting and uncomfortable denture can cause many people to lose confidence in their smile, which is where implant-retained dentures can offer the perfect solution. 

An implant-retained denture will mean that the denture is held firmly in place by two to four implants. The implants will be expertly placed by one of the dental implant surgeons in Edinburgh and the denture will be created by the clinical dental technicians (CDT) at Scottish Denture Clinic. 

Although your denture will still be removable, it will be more secure than traditional dentures, providing you with an enhanced level of confidence every day.

If the idea of eating a succulent steak or sinking your teeth into some crusty bread feels like a dim and distant memory, an implant-retained denture can give you this important enjoyment back. Book your consultation today to discover whether this could be the right solution for you.

Your treatment journey with implant-retained dentures

During your initial consultation at Scottish Denture Clinic in Edinburgh, your CDT will advise you of all the options available to you for your treatment.

You will have the opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of each to help you make an informed decision. 

If you decide to go ahead with implant-retained dentures, we will make an appointment for you with one of the dental implant surgeons at Scottish Denture Clinic.

You will be involved with the planning of your implant-retained denture to ensure that it meets your needs in terms of aesthetics and functionality. We will work closely with you and the dental team to ensure that you receive the best care and the perfect final result for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a full-arch replacement expensive?

Initially maybe, but in the long-term, it represents a truly cost-effective way of maintaining a healthy smile for life. When you consider the cost of replacing individual teeth with like-for-like dental implants or consider that you may have to replace a conventional denture several or more times during your lifetime; All-On-4 treatment represents a great investment in your long-term smile, your quality of life and your overall health.

Now that’s something that you Just can’t put a true value on!

If you are concerned about the initial cost, we provide several 0%, low-interest and no- deposit payment plans that allow you to spread the cost of treatment over several months or years. Why not book yourself a free consultation and we will give you a custom quote based on your exacting needs.

Is full-arch replacement safe at New Life Teeth?

Absolutely. Our clinicians are leaders in the field of full-arch replacement and have performed multiple treatments. We take the utmost care to ensure that all dental implant procedures are meticulously planned using the latest digital and virtual technology. All aspects of treatment including the exact positioning of the implant itself are methodically thought through to ensure the utmost safety of the patient at all times.

Does the All-On-4 dental implants procedure hurt?

Because the majority of the work goes into the planning stages of your treatment, the actual chair-side surgery is relatively quick and straightforward. Typically patients are under a local anaesthetic but we also have at our disposal the latest dental sedation for nervous or anxious patients. Either way, patients should feel little or no discomfort during the short surgical process.

Is my full-arch teeth replacement removable?

No. Once a Prettau Bridge is fitted, it remains permanently attached to your dental implants and therefore part of your mouth, so it won’t move or slip as conventional dentures can. It is designed, however, to be removed by your dentist for maintenance purposes when required.

How do I keep my new teeth clean?

Cleaning is easy. Simply brush and floss just like you would your natural teeth. It is important to clean between your implant bridge and gums once a day and this is best achieved using a water flosser. Either way, our dental teams in Belfast and Edinburgh will give you full instructions for aftercare at the time of treatment, so don’t worry, we have you covered.

Why do you recommend the Prettau Bridge?

The Prettau® Bridge is named after the region of Prettau in Northern Italy and was originated by Zirkonzahn, the leader in Zirconia dental technology. www.zirkonzahn.com

At New Life Teeth, we have a complete Zirkonzahn milling centre onsite to design and make these beautiful Prettau bridges. When you look at every other available option in implant dentistry, Prettau has so many advantages. Compared to implant acrylic (plastic) overdentures, or any hybrid acrylic (plastic) implant bridge, this is far superior.

The New Life Teeth team have committed to being one of the leading Prettau® Bridge practices in the UK and Internationally. Clients have always come to us to transform their lives, and with Prettau ® Bridge, we feel we can serve the needs of our full-arch implant clients optimally.

The Prettau® Bridge is the longest-lasting, most effective way to replace your missing teeth, bar none, and we are proud to offer it to patients. The New Life Teeth team have undergone special training by Zirkonzahn, the parent company of Prettau, and are one of only a few qualified practices to deliver this incredible option.
