If you have lost all your teeth in a jaw or need to have them all replaced we can now remove failing teeth, place implants and provide you with a fixed bridge all in the same day. The good news if you need to replace your teeth with dental implants is that you do not need as many implants as new teeth.Smile in a day or teeth in a day (previously know as All-On-4) is a treatment concept that has evolved over the past 20 years involving the placement of four and in some cases more, Titanium implants into either an upper or lower jaw and then fixing a whole set of teeth on them. In many cases, the treatment can be completed within a day or so. Implant manufacturer Nobel Biocare pioneered the evolution of All-on-4 technique. We now use Megagen implantsAs we have an on site laboratory, you can now visit into our practice in heart of the City of London in the morning with failing teeth or missing teeth and walk out the very same day with a whole new set of natural-looking, natural-acting teeth! That really is something to smile about.As the name suggests, we use just four implants, which can support a full set of new teeth in the form of a fixed bridge. Usually they do not require bone grafts and is suitable for patients with a lot less bone than is necessary in standard dental implant protocols.The implants are placed and angled in such a way that they can support several teeth, withstanding the forces created by biting and chewing. Special implants are also available for patients with extreme bone loss. You can read more about implants here.
