The temporary teeth are fixed so patients can be free from their dentures on the day of implant placement. Following a six month healing period during which time the implants have integrated with the bone, a high-quality, durable permanent bridge, built on a titanium framework is fitted.
This treatment can offer our patients either upper, lower or both sets of teeth replaced with fixed, permanent teeth. The placement of four or five dental implants at strategic positions and angles provide the foundation upon which a final twelve tooth bridge can be placed.
For patients who have suffered ill-fitting dentures or mobile, failing teeth for years, the provision of stable, comfortable, natural-looking teeth through dental implants really can restore that self-confidence and vitality that has often been lost.
