Teeth in a Day

What is Teeth in a Day?

If you have loose dentures or missing teeth and find it difficult to eat the foods you enjoy, then Teeth in a Day could change your life. Traditional dental implant treatment takes a staged approach, placing the crowns or bridges on the implants after a healing period, which means you would usually be fitted with a temporary denture, prolonging your discomfort and limited function. With Teeth in a Day, there are no dentures, you will have teeth fitted in just one day!

How much does Teeth in a Day cost?

Teeth in a Day can vary in price depending on each person’s individual needs. If you need all your teeth replacing using Teeth in a Day, then you could be looking at a figure of around £30,000. If you have Teeth in a Day treatment for just one arch, (upper or lower set of teeth) then the figure would be around £15,000. At Dental Care Group, we offer interest free finance for up to 12 months, as well as finance from 24 months to 60 months at an interest rate of 9.9% APR.

Why am I losing my teeth?

It is not uncommon to lose one or  more of your teeth, either from trauma, decay, infection, or old age. Some people simply accept this and choose to not do anything about it. Your teeth are fundamental to the aesthetics of your smile and contribute to maximum dental and overall health. If they fall out or are extracted, you are advised to replace them.

Don’t let a gap in your smile affect your health, relationships, profession, or self-confidence. It’s time to give dental implants in Brentwood serious consideration.

Dental Implants in BrentwoodWhy do I need to replace missing teeth?

Your teeth play a big role in your digestive system, your speech and your appearance. They also promote strength in the jawbone; the more you chew, the stronger the bone and the more support for your teeth.

When teeth are missing, it throws off the mutual relationship between the bone and the teeth, and the jawbone will start to deteriorate. Neighbouring teeth can start to loosen and can shift out of place to fill in the gap and could even fall out completely if you do not seek treatment.

What exactly are dental implants?

Many people refer to the entire prosthetic as a dental implant, but technically, the implant is just the screw made from titanium. Your dentist at Dental Care Group secures the dental implant in the jaw, just as a natural tooth root. After oral surgery, the biocompatible metals, designed to be accepted by the body, fuse directly with the jawbone. This provides support for the abutment and crown that make up the rest of your prosthetic tooth, creating your completed dental implants in Brentwood.

What dental implants do you use?

For your dental implants in Brentwood, we use the Osstem dental implants system. It is currently the globe’s fifth most popular and trusted implant system and is Asia’s number one dental implant system. Over 60 countries around the world use this system out of many hundreds available.

For front teeth (incisors and canines) an angled abutment (post) will be required. Our dentists will advise you if you need the angled abutment (post) on back teeth for your dental implants in Brentwood.

Replace your missing teeth with dental implants in Clacton

Missing teeth can affect your oral health or overall health in many ways. A missing tooth can compromise your bite, alter your speech and restrict your diet. In the long run, as you rely more on your healthy teeth, you increase the chance they will be damaged or lost prematurely.

At Dental Care Group in Clacton, dental implants, let you, not your teeth, lead your life. Our patients find that treatment with dental implants has been life-changing and has made a big difference to their ability to socialise, eat, chew and speak properly and generally to their quality of life. Recent advances in dentistry have made dental implants more practical than ever, even when patients have little remaining jawbone.

Dental Implants in ClactonWhat is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Dental implants can be fixed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to the properties of titanium, dental implants attach to the jawbone and become a good foundation for the replacement teeth. Dental implants can replace single or multiple missing teeth – even a mouthful of missing teeth.

Why choose dental implants?

If you are missing one or more teeth, there are many reasons why you should consider dental implants in Clacton. Teeth that are not supported by a root, can eventually lead to jawbone shrinkage. This shrinkage will make your face look older and collapsed. Dental implants prevent deterioration of the jawbone and help the generation of new bone tissue. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants preserve the healthy bone structure, have a high success rate and are the most lasting option. A dental bridge requires the removal of healthy tooth structure, whereas removable dentures are inconvenient, become loose over time and weaken any healthy teeth, increasing the risk of decay.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are quite versatile. As long are you are an adult missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or tooth decay, you are likely a candidate for dental implants. The determining factor is jawbone quality and quantity. Your Clacton dentist will determine whether dental implants are a viable solution for you.

This helps us understand what the cosmetic issues you have and how to solve them – not just the teeth but also other important factors, such as lip position and cheek fullness, as these can be influenced by the final shape and size of your dental implants in Southend.

Next comes a full clinical investigation of the mouth, including gum health, detection of tooth decay, and checking the stability of your remaining teeth.

Discover the benefits of dental implants in Brentwood

If you have lost one or more teeth, you may be wondering if it’s too late to do something about it. Damaged or missing teeth can create many aesthetic and functional problems such as destroying a person’s smile and gradually deteriorating the jawbone.

At Dental Care Group, we recommend dental implants as an effective way to restore lost teeth. Their high success rate, lasting quality and natural appearance are only some of the reasons that make them stand out compared to other tooth replacement options. Our experienced dentists can examine your mouth and determine if you’re eligible for dental implants in Brentwood.

dental-implants-brentwoodHow do they work?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium, which are surgically inserted into the jawbone to hold a replacement crown, bridge or even an over denture. Dental implants typically consist of 3 parts: the implant, which permanently attaches to your jaw, the abutment, that connects your implant to your replacement teeth, and finally the crown that is the visible part of the restored tooth.

What are the advantages?

Ideally, tooth replacement options should preserve the integrity of your facial structure and function and look like your natural teeth. Unfortunately, conventional tooth replacement options, such as bridges and dentures do not preserve your jawbone and sometimes require compromising your neighbouring healthy teeth to hold them in place.

With dental implants your neighbouring teeth are not affected as they do not support the implant. This leaves more of your own teeth intact, improving your oral health in the long run. Dental implants also allow easier brushing between teeth, improving your oral hygiene.

More importantly, dental implants prevent bone loss. As the jawbone requires pressure from chewing in order to maintain its health and density, the absence of such pressure due to tooth loss will gradually lead to deterioration. Studies have shown that in the first year of tooth loss, your bone will lose up to 25% of its overall volume. Dental implants feel and function like your natural teeth and provide the pressure necessary to maintain jawbone density.

All you need to know about dental implants in Southend

A dental implant is a small titanium post fitted into the jawbone as a substitute for a missing tooth root. Because titanium is a bio compatible material, meaning it is highly adaptive to human tissue, dental implants integrate naturally with the jawbone. Dental implants can replace one tooth, several teeth or an entire set of upper and lower teeth. They are a durable and permanent solution and overcome many of the challenges faced by more conventional tooth replacement options.

dental-implants-in-southendAt Dental Care Group in Southend, dental implants are our first choice and a standard of care compared to other options to restore missing or damaged teeth. Our lead implant dentist, Dr Adeel Ali, was trained by Professor Hilt Tatum, a pioneer in dental implantology and the inventor of the sinus augmentation procedure in 1975. Dr Ali is passionate about the benefits dental implants can provide and believes in the finest quality and best possible treatment for the long-term care for his patients.

Teeth can be lost due to many causes, but there is no reason why you should live without them, as dental implants provide an entirely safe and effective way of replacing them.Missing teeth are not only unattractive, but may cause many health problems. Gaps in your teeth will force your remaining teeth to shift in order to fill them, leading to alignment problems with your bite. More importantly, missing teeth can lead to jawbone deterioration, causing additional tooth loss and creating a sunken facial impression.

Unlike other tooth restoration methods that merely replace missing teeth, dental implants fuse with the jawbone and blend with your natural teeth restoring and enhancing their function.Because they are a permanent restoration, dental implants eliminate the discomfort associated with loose dentures and other non-permanent restorations. Dental implants do not require your healthy teeth to be compromised the way a dental bridge does. Moreover, it is much easier to brush and floss your teeth with dental implants compared to dental bridges or dentures. Finally, dental implants are a cost-effective solution. With proper care, they can last for a lifetime.

Restore your teeth and your confidence with Dental Care Group

If you have suffered from tooth loss, unsightly gaps in your teeth may be causing you distress. The cosmetic impact of tooth loss can knock your confidence as you become self-conscious about your smile. On top that, you then have to deal with the dental health implications. All of this can leave you feeling low. Modern dentistry at Dental Care Group means you don’t have to put up with these unsavoury consequences anymore. At our practice in Clacton, dental implants are used to restore teeth and smiles with long lasting results.

dental-implants-in-clactonWhat are dental implants?

Made from lightweight titanium, dental implants are small screws that are placed directly into the jawbone. They act as artificial tooth roots and are designed to encourage the growth of new bone. As bone weaves in and around them, they become securely locked in place. This gives them superior stability when compared with traditional dentures. What’s more, this also means your jawbone is protected from degeneration – a common after-effect of tooth loss.

Replacement teeth are attached to the dental implants to complete the reconstruction. The final outcome is both a natural look and feel to your newly restored teeth.

Just one dental implant is needed to hold multiple replacement teeth. So whether you have lost one, several or all of your teeth, dental implants in Clacton offer a reliable solution.

Your implant procedure

The first step to restoring your teeth with dental implants in Clacton is to arrange a free consultation at our friendly practice. Your teeth and gums will be examined to see if you are ready for implant treatment. The procedure itself is carried out under local anaesthetic, so your discomfort will be kept to a minimum. If you are especially nervous, we also offer conscious sedation, where you will remain awake and aware but feel more relaxed.

After your implants have been precisely placed into your jaw, you will need time to heal. Your implants will fully integrate into your jawbone, ready for the attachment of your custom-made replacement teeth. Once your treatment is complete, our implant dentist will advise you on how to take of your dental implants, so you can enjoy them for years to come.

Dental implants: helping you smile with confidence again

Missing teeth are a burden on your dental health and your facial appearance. Whether you have experienced tooth loss as a result of injury or ill health, dealing with the lifelong consequences can be daunting. The thought of having to wear dentures for the rest of your life can be of little comfort. At Dental Care Group in Brentwood, dental implants are available to give you a modern and reliable alternative.

dental-implants-in-brentwoodHow do dental implants work?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from lightweight titanium. They provide a base onto which replacement teeth can be attached. They come in the form of small screws that one of our skilled dentists will precisely place into your jawbone. Here they support the growth of new bone. This key characteristic of dental implants gives them two major advantages over traditional dentures. Firstly, they are securely held in place, giving you greater stability so you won’t need to worry about your replacement teeth slipping out of place. Secondly, they protect your jawbone from shrinking, which is a common consequence of tooth loss, even among denture wearers.

Dental implants are clinically proven to successfully and reliably restore missing teeth, whether it’s just the one or a whole mouthful.

Your implant journey

The first step on your implant journey is to arrange a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. A thorough examination of your teeth and gums will determine if you are ready for implant treatment.

At our practice in Brentwood, dental implants are fitted under local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain. If you are feeling especially nervous, we also offer conscious sedation to relax you during your implant procedure.

After a period of healing, your custom-made replacement teeth will be attached to your dental implants. Just one dental implant can securely hold several replacement teeth, making it less work to reconstruct multiple teeth. The final outcome of your treatment is a complete reconstruction of your missing teeth that looks and feels natural.

With the support and care of one of our highly trained dentists, you can look forward to improved dental health with dental implants in Brentwood.  So call or email Dental Care Group today to begin your implant journey.

A modern solution to missing teeth with dental implants in Clacton

Tooth loss is often a painful and stressful experience. Once the initial trauma is over, there are long-term consequences to contend with. Day to day, you may find yourself struggling to eat, chew and talk like you used to. Over the years, your dental health may also begin to suffer. Lifelong denture use is not a prospect that appeals to most people. However this is not the only option available today. Dental implants in Clacton provide a long lasting, clinically proven solution to missing teeth. You can look forward to improved dental health and quality of life with dental implants provided by Dental Care Group.

dental-implants-in-clactonWhat are dental implants?

Your teeth can be thought of in two halves, the tops that you can see and the roots that lie beneath your gums. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots, in the form of small titanium screws. These are placed directly into the jawbone, where they actually support local bone growth. This means that over time, new bone will firmly secure the implants in place. Once this process is complete, usually taking several months, replacement teeth are attached. The final finish is a complete restoration of your missing teeth, which both looks and feels natural.

What you can expect from your implant procedure?

At our practice in Clacton, dental implants are carefully and precisely fitted under local anaesthetic, to ensure a pain-free experience. Sedation is also available for more anxious patients. After a period of healing, during which time your implants will fully integrate into the jawbone, you will be fitted with custom-made replacement teeth. Whether you are looking to treat the loss of a single tooth or a whole mouthful, dental implants in Clacton offer an effective and reliable solution. What’s more, they protect your jawbone from shrinking and your gums from receding. These are both common effects of tooth loss, which dentures alone cannot prevent.

With your dental implants in Clacton, you won’t ever need to worry about your replacement teeth shifting out of place or fret over eating tough or chewy foods. So don’t delay, find out if dental implants are right for you by getting in touch with Dental Care Group today.

Fill the gap

You never fully appreciate how important it is to have a complete set of healthy teeth until you start to lose them. When you start to lose your teeth, whether that is due to decay or injury, it can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Losing teeth can cause you to become self-conscious and embarrassed to smile. At Dental Care Group’s clinic in Clacton, dental implants are one of the many services we offer.

dental-implants-in-ClactonDental implants are an artificial replacement of a tooth’s root. The implants are fitted directly into the jawbone and hold false teeth or crowns in place. Much like natural roots, the implants are there to support the tooth. Providing you maintain a good level of oral hygiene and continue to attend for regular check-ups of your dental implants in Clacton, they should last many years.

Unlike removable dentures which have a plastic or metal framework, false teeth that are fitted to an implant are much more stable and comfortable.
