Full arch replacement (fixed)
All-on-4

If your teeth are failing or you are wanting a full new set of fixed teeth then a full arch replacement can be life changing. Often called 'all-on-4' or 'all-on-X' this is an incredibly popular treatment.

 

They are fixed in place allowing you to smile, eat, chew, laugh and socialise with complete confidence.

How does an all-on-X work?

Your jaw bone is assessed to see how many implants are required to support a full arch of teeth. Commonly using 4 or 6 strategically placed implants to support a full arch bridge which is screwed or cemented into place.

 

What are the benefits? 

  • A safe and fast procedure, you are often able to immediately place a fixed temporary bridge whilst the implants heal

  • Can be brushed, cleaned and cared for just as your natural teeth

  • No concern about a removable plate dropping whilst eating, chewing, laughing or talking

  • No need to avoid the foods you love

  • Regain your confidence 

  • Prevents bone loss

  • Support your facial features

How long do all-on-X last?

Many cases can last well over 20 years if properly cared for.

How much do full arch of implants cost?

A full beautiful new set of fixed teeth isn't cheap due to the extensive surgery required, the number of implants and the quality of the final bridgework. Despite the upfront cost, when averaged over the lifespan however they are almost always the most cost effective way of replacing your teeth. It is sensible to budget around £12,000 per arch which may vary if you require bone thickening grafts for example.

 

I've seen it advertised for cheaper?

Most commonly a reduction in cost is a result of a reduction in quality or time. At Vitruvian Dental Studio we don't want to reduce the quality of the service and treatment we provide and only want to provide high quality treatments without compromise. Especially for something as important as dental implants which you will be using for decades and the implant will often last a lifetime.

Implant Retained Crowns and Bridges

If you're wanting to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth dental implants can provide a fixed option that is the best way to replace a missing tooth.
 

What is an implant crown or bridge?
An implant is divided into two sections:

  • The implant is a titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone to replace the tooth root.

  • The crown is the tooth that is placed on top of the implant to replace the tooth structure in your mouth. In situations where you have multiple missing teeth next to each other, sometimes a single implant can be used to support multiple crowns stuck together, this is called a bridge.

How long do they last?

Once in place the implant can last a lifetime if properly cared for and you attend regular check-ups and hygiene appointments. The crown may need replacing in 15-20 years dependent on wear and tear.

How do you care for them?

Once in place you care for dental implants are you would for your natural teeth. They are fixed in place so treat it the same you would a natural tooth.

How much do they cost?

A single tooth is £2700 (including the consultation and any X-rays needed). An implant retained bridge starts from £3800 depending on the number of teeth needing replaced.

Averaged out over the lifespan of the implant and crown, implant retained crowns and bridges, although expensive up front, are almost always the most cost effective way to replace a tooth with a fixed option.

Are there any hidden extra charges?

The consultation charge and CBCT required to plan the implant are deducted from the £2700. 

If the consultation reveals any treatment required to make your mouth healthy for an implant (such as gum treatment) this is chargeable on top, however this will ensure your implant will have the best chance of success and last as long as possible. If any bone thickening procedures are needed to thicken your jaw bone (such as bone grafts) these are chargeable on top as well but will be identified to you before going ahead.

Implant Retained Dentures

If your teeth are failing, you are wanting a full new set of teeth or you have loose dentures which are affecting your self confidence then implant retained dentures are an amazing option.

 

They are clicked into place allowing you to smile, eat, chew, laugh and socialise with complete confidence. However are also removable to allow for easy cleaning.

 

What are implant retained dentures?

An implant retained denture involves the placement of multiple implants into either the upper or lower jaw which will have a connector on top. The connector will correspond to a connector in your denture. You can then click the denture in or out which massively increases its ability to stay in place.

How stable are they?

Most patients can confidently bite into an apple or eat a steak, there isn't much that you couldn't do as they click firmly in to place.

 

What are the benefits? 

  • Regain your confidence to eat the foods you love

  • Replace loose dentures and without the need for sticky fixative

  • Improve your smile appearance

  • Maintain your jaw bone

  • Support your face

How long do implant retained dentures last?

Most implants remain in place for the rest of your life, your denture and components may need maintenance due to wear and tear.

How long does the process take?

The process usually takes around 12-15 weeks. This is mainly due to the waiting time for your body to accept the implants. During this waiting time we are able to provide you with temporary options to ensure you never walk out of our door without teeth.

How much does an implant retained denture cost?

An implant retained denture is not cheap due to the extensive surgery required, the number of implants needed and the hand crafted denture created to ensure you get the best possible results. An implant retained denture is £6,500 on up to 4 implants. The consultation cost and any x-rays needed are deducted from this price however if you require any other procedures such as bone grafting this is chargeable on top, you will be made completely aware if so. 

How do you care for an implant retained denture?

You should clean your denture every morning and night and brush the implants as you would your natural teeth. We will provide all the advice needed to ensure you keep your denture and implants completely clean.
