“The journey towards a new smile begins with us”
Restore a balanced occlusion once again
Same Day Teeth
At SW1 Dental Implant Studio & Implant Clinic we can offer our patients ‘Same-Day Teeth’ using the Columbus Bridge® concept. This means that we are able to provide patients who currently have removable dentures or failing bridgework with permanent, fixed teeth in just one day!
This technique is life-changing for patients who may have previously been advised they have insufficient bone into which to place dental implants, or for those patients who are simply unhappy with their current dentures or worn-out bridgework. By placing a minimum of 4 dental implants in strategic (sometimes tilted) positions in your upper and lower jaw we are able to provide fixed replacement teeth in just one session, utilising all available bone.
You’ll walk into the clinic unhappy with the state of your teeth and walk out with a brand new perfect smile and plenty to smile about.
What are the advantages of the All-on-Four method?
Once the implants are fitted it is possible to start eating after a short amount of time
The replacement teeth are permanently fixed in place
There is far less need for a bone graft
The implants are easily maintained
It is a much more cost efficient method we can also offer finance to spread the cost of treatment up to 5 years!
A whole set of teeth can be fixed in place by just four implants
Short surgery period (depending on the complexity of each case)
High success rates
Most patients who request this kind of treatment are unhappy with their existing bridgework or dentures and are seeking an alternative that is permanently fixed in place. Also, many patients have been told they are not candidates for traditional implants because they lack sufficient bone volume in the jaws. Thousands of patients all over the UK have benefited from this procedure.
Our patients are assessed on an individual basis – every patient will have a thorough consultation using a combination of radiographic & diagnostic techniques alongside an in-depth analysis of your lifestyle and current concerns.
The All-on-Four Procedure
Placing a dental implant is a fairly straight-forward, minimally invasive procedure and something that we do everyday at Portmore.
Stage 1 – Planning and preparation
Dr Benigni will assess your mouth to ensure your case is suitable for treatment with same day smile implants. You will need an accurate 3D mapping of your jaw. This allows for safe and effective long term results.
Stage 2 – On the day
On the day itself Dr Benigni will remove your existing, failed teeth and/or bridgework and place 4 implants which are able to support a full row of highly aesthetic teeth, created by on site by our team of master ceramicists. The procedure can take 2-4 hours for one arch, both sets top and bottom can also be done in one visit.
Your new smile will be fixed in place and will be a very high quality ‘temporary’ restoration. This will be worn during the healing phase and acts as a template and planning tool for your final ‘WOW’ smile.
Stage 3 – Healing
For the next 8 weeks you have the opportunity to test your new smile, which gives time for you to decide on any changes in the colour texture, sparkle and positioning of the teeth. This period also allows the implants to completely fuse to the bone in preparation for your final smile!
Stage 4 – Your final smile!
Your final bridge is usually ready within 3-6 months of your initial treatment. It is made up of either carbon fibre or state of the art computer milled titanium skeleton with a choice of composite zirconia or acrylic teeth.
Take the first step replace that missing tooth and you will never look back!
