In order to answer this, let’s first explain what “immediate” dentures are. Immediate Dentures are those that are put in ‘immediately’ after having a tooth extraction. They can replace one tooth or a number of teeth. Immediate Dentures are constructed before the teeth have been removed and inserted immediately after the removal of the teeth.

Perhaps the most commonly asked question after “how much do implants cost?”, is “how long do implants last?” Fortunately, in the majority of cases, implants can last a lifetime.

There are hundreds of research papers spanning 5 decades that look at dental implant success rates and the commonly accepted success rate is at least 95%. With modern day implant technology and techniques, this figure is actually even higher.

You might be wondering why your dentist recommends seeing a dental hygienist. We all know that poor dental hygiene is the main contributing factor in tooth decay and gum disease. We also know that effective tooth brushing and cleaning between helps teeth and gums to stay healthy. So why the additional time and expense? What do they offer that my dentist can’t?

Anxiety is a very powerful emotion, in which the body prepares itself for something unpleasant to happen. Dental phobia and anxiety is equally as powerful and this intense emotion prevents a significant proportion of the general public from accessing dental care.

Dental implants were first introduced to help people who had lost all of their natural teeth, but had great difficulty with dentures (false teeth) because they had lost too much jawbone for the dentures to rest on securely.

Today, most dental implants are used to replace either a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. This means that modern implants have to come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit the different teeth that they replace. Their surfaces have been improved to enhance the integration process and their success (or more appropriately “survival”) rates are in the region of 94% at five years. Dental implants are widely accepted as a more successful and conservative option to fixed bridgework – but are they better than natural teeth?

There are many people who want to achieve a straighter, whiter smile, but have concerns that it will be a costly procedure – not only to their bank balance, but more significantly, to their natural teeth.

To achieve a straighter smile, we would first advise patients to consider having a brace fitted. However, if the length of orthodontic treatment is a concern, some patients can be offered a quicker way to achieve results – Veneers.

Over recent years, there has been massive growth in the demand for treatment with dental implants. This has been helped by growing media awareness due to TV programmes such as Channel 4’s “Embarrassing Bodies” and regular features in national newspapers and magazines. The fact is, without question, they offer the best solution to replace missing teeth as they are fixed in place and so feel like natural teeth. If you wear dentures, dental implants offer a solution that feels like having your own teeth back. It is not difficult to see why demand is so high.
