Our dental implant team work together to make the process quick, easy and affordable with dental finance options for each customer.
When you have missing teeth or they have to be removed, the ideal solution is to arrange for dental implants so that you can:
- Have the diet that you want. You can eat what you want and foods you may have avoided because of your teeth can go back on the menu.
- Eat comfortably again, being able to bite and chew food as you would with your natural teeth.
- Achieve a natural look and smile with natural-looking teeth that you have always wanted.
- Enjoy socialising with friends and smile confidently, eating out again.
- Have no damage to your remaining teeth.
- Stop bone shrinkage and stop your face from changing shape.
- Help to reduce an aging effect that tooth loss contributes to.
- Restore and rebuild lost tissue.
- Fully understand the process as it’s less complicated to look after your teeth and maintain than a conventional bridge or dentures.
- Eliminate dentures and denture fixative or dental glues.
- Achieve a lifetime solution without having to remove your teeth or remove dentures.
Dental Implants Procedure in Edinburgh
A thorough assessment is required to assess suitability. We will carry out a CT bone density scan, which measures the density, width and depth of your jawbone. You’ll also be given a further X-ray review to check all is in order before signing our consent to treatment form.
Anaesthetic and sedation solutions are available to ensure the treatment remains relatively painless. You will wake up an hour or so later with the implants already in. A few hours later, we will fit your bridge to the implants and the day’s treatment will be complete. You will be able to resume normal activities within a day or so.
After approximately 10-14 days your stitches are removed, and you can start eating soft solid foods; after about eight weeks you can eat normally.
Approximately three-four months later impressions are taken to begin making your final bridge. It normally takes several appointments to ensure your new teeth look great.
Twice a year it is essential to have a check-up and visit our hygienist to ensure the long-term success of your implants.
Dental Implant Surgeons
Dr Stuart Lutton is a well experienced and skilled dental implant surgeon, who has completed hundreds of cases of Prettau Zirconia full arch dental implants with a 99% success rate. Patients have commented on the amazing feeling to get new teeth and learn to smile confidently again. The dental implant treatment service includes options from a single dental implant to a full-arch dental implant solution. Patients may have been told previously that their teeth and gums cannot be dealt with by dental implants but with our on-site lab and CT scanner, we can often identify the right solution and discuss possibilities with you in a free consultation.
We also accept referrals and we can provide a service based on your referring practitioner, whether that is for surgery only, fabrication of the final restoration or full treatment including surgery and delivery of the restoration or CT scans.
We have confidence and credibility in the advice and treatment provided by New Life Teeth. We keep the patient fully informed and our team can guide you through the process, involving the patient in the diagnostic and decision making process. We build working relationships on a professional level following a careful consultation process with the surgeon and restorative dentist.
Prior to treatment and beyond your surgery, we are on hand to help and support you with your new teeth. When researching your implant treatment, it is essential to use a tried and tested method for dental implants, which has investment in the future of digital dentistry to ensure the service and product is still available in 10-20 years, unlike other dental implant providers. We use proven dental implant systems to ensure a quality lasting product is available to our patients with unbreakable teeth.
Fixed Teeth In A Day
Many people want to hang on to their last few teeth, but this is often postponing the inevitable, as more force is applied them. The remaining teeth are often used to anchor dentures and these eventually become loose and uncomfortable, especially with jaw bone shrinkage. If you have less than 6 natural teeth left in any one jaw, it’s unlikely these teeth will last your lifetime.
Dental implants can act like a tooth root, anchored into the jaw bone. Implants a perfect solution as the post is screwed onto the implant, and this supports a crown, bridge or denture. Dental implants with the ‘same day teeth’ solution, help to stabilise the jawbone and stop it from shrinking.
Full Arch Dental Implants
The full arch dental implant procedure – often referred to as ‘All-on-4®’, 'teeth in a day', 'same day teeth' or the 'same day smile‘- is a hugely popular solution that can permanently replace an entire arch of teeth - either upper or lower. The main procedure takes only one day.
It only takes 4 – 6 dental implants to support an entire arch of teeth (instead of the usual 8-10 implants). And as our expert implant surgeons use the latest technology, your new teeth can last up to a lifetime.
We recommend the Prettau® bridge as it’s the ultimate fixed solution. The Prettau® bridge is the longest lasting, most effective way to replace your missing teeth, bar none, and we are proud to offer it to our patients. The New Life Teeth team have undergone special training by Zirkonzahn, the parent company of Prettau and are one of only a few qualified practices to deliver this incredible option.
