Did you know you could replace a lost tooth in one day?

If you have missing teeth, you may be thinking about investigating tooth replacement treatments. One option is dental implants. Implants are hugely versatile, and you don’t always have to wait for months to enjoy the benefits of your new smile. We also offer same-day treatments.

Our treatments

SynCone

SynCone is an implant system, which enables us to place implants and a denture on the same day. The result is a brand new smile in just one day. We place between 4 and 6 dental implants in the jaw bone. The implants have tapered posts attached to them, and these posts connect the implant to the base of the denture. Usually, implant treatment takes around 3-8 months, but with this technique, you can start making use of your brand new teeth immediately.

All-on-4

All-on-4 is a single day implant system, which uses just four implants to secure a full arch of new teeth. The implants are placed to take advantage of the strongest bone tissue in the jaw. Two implants are positioned at the back of the mouth, with the other two located at the front. Traditionally, implants are placed at 90 degree angles, but the back implants sit at a 45-degree angle, which maximises strength and stability. Once the implants are secure, they can then be attached to the new teeth.

Implant-retained bridge

We offer implant-retained bridges, as well as implant-supported dentures. Bridges are a type of restoration, which are commonly used to replace a single tooth or a small number of missing teeth. In the case of a full arch, a series of bridges will be used.

Today a patient form Sudbury in Suffolk came to the practice and received 6 implants withoput the need to open the gum. We used a precise computer generated guide to place the implants using a key hole approach to minimise any discomfort over Christmas. the whole procedure took around 1 hour to complete and the patient who arrived with a full upper denture left with a fixed upper bridge.
