Complete new smile in just one day

One of Pontefract’s Leading Dental Implant Practices

Fixed teeth in a day with Ropergate Dental Care & Implant Studio

Using the all-on-4 dental implant treatment technique

Dental Implant Enquiries: 01977 602206

Our teeth in a day dental implant treatment in Pontefract can transform your life – as well as your smile – and is ideal for those with missing teeth, who wear dentures and who avoid certain foods. On the same day that the teeth are removed, dental implants are placed and you are fitted with a fantastic set of fixed natural-looking temporary teeth. This means you’re never left with a gap at any stage and won’t need to wear dentures while the healing takes place. After three months, the temporary teeth are replaced with permanent ones and your new teeth will not only feel fantastic, they will look fabulous as well. The typical process for replacing all missing teeth – whether top or bottom – is to fix 6-10 dental implants. But using the all-on-4 system, fewer implants are needed. The process involves placing 2 implants at the front of the jaw and 2 implants at the back of the jaw, which are braced together by a fixed bridge that will stay in place permanently.

Implant-retained dentures

Tooth implants in Pontefract are secure and comfortable. We can even help secure dentures in place using a press-stud style attachment, called a locator abutment. We’ll need to place 2 or 4 implants in the lower jaw and a minimum of 4 implants in the upper jaw. The press-stud attachments allow the dentures to be pressed into the mouth and clicked into place. You may still feel some slight movement, but it’s a world away from wearing a complete denture in the traditional way. Secure and stable, it’s a great way to discover a new-found confidence if you struggle with wearing dentures. Interested in dental implants at Ropergate Dental Care & Implant Studio in Pontefract?

Frequently asked questions

About dental implants here at Ropergate Dental Care & Implant Studio

  1. How does a dental implant work?

    They look, feel and work like real teeth – whether replacing one tooth or many, or to fix dentures in place. – Under local anaesthetic, a titanium screw is first placed beneath the gum line, into the jawbone – Over a period of 3-6 months, the healing process causes the bone and implant to fuse. A temporary crown or bridge can be worn at this time – When healed, the screw acts as an artificial tooth root and a crown or bridge is attached

  2. Does treatment hurt?

    The tooth implant procedure in Pontefract is carried out under local anaesthetic, to minimise discomfort. We also offer our nervous patients dental sedation. Finally, over-the-counter painkillers can help ease discomfort and pain following treatment.

  3. How long does the process take?

    While everyone is different, oral health factors like gum disease may affect treatment times and healing times vary, a typical dental implant treatment takes 3-6 months*. If you need any teeth extracting, this is done before the implant treatment begins. Once the implants are placed and healed, an impression is taken and our state-of-the-art laboratory will make your bespoke bridge before it is fitted onto the implants at your final appointment.

  4. How will my smile look?

    We’ll do everything we can to make sure you feel confident and comfortable with your new smile. That means ensuring you have the opportunity to preview your smile before it’s fitted. For most patients, we can also give you the chance to see how your smile will look in your own mouth before any work is carried out.

  5. How long do tooth implants last?

    With proper care, they can last many years. One of the best things about them is that they’re just as easy to look after as your natural teeth – with twice-daily brushing and flossing, and regular check-ups and hygiene appointments.

  6. Who can have dental implants?

    It is often the case that anybody with missing teeth can benefit from having dental implants in pontefract, with very few cases leading to an individual unable to have the implants. Before any treatment begins, we will conduct an assessment to ensure that you are able to have tooth implants.

  7. How do I look after my tooth implants?

    You can care for them through brushing and flossing twice a day, as well as attending regular check-ups.
