implant-denture-solutions-10You may have already decided to outsource your retirement to some exotic, far-off land, imagining a life of leisure.  You may invest in expensive face creams to give yourself a tonic and postpone wrinkles, or a new sports car to give yourself a pick-me-up, but nothing is as ageing as teeth with little black holes or unsightly amalgam fillings.  Same Day Teeth Suite can give your life a boost with new fillings and you can start looking forward to so many new beginnings. Life and love can begin again if your teeth are in good health and you can flaunt a beautiful smile.

Perhaps you have existing amalgam fillings you would like replaced, or have nagging pain that is so debilitating, and you suspect you need a new filling. Not all teeth can be restored or the holes filled, but your dentist will advise you as to the best course of treatment, what can be done to repair or restore your fillings and, alternatively, informing you if you need a different course of treatment such as a crown.  If there is evidence of a cracked filling, or if you have lost a filling, it is important to get to a dentist as soon as possible before bacteria can damage the nerve area, and you need more extensive and costly treatment.

If one, or more, of your teeth, has been damaged by tooth decay, and the decay has been removed by your dentist to ensure it is healthy, it has to be repaired.  Once upon a time, the only option was an amalgam filling that not only looks unattractive but does not protect the nerve of the tooth in the same way as modern fillings do.  All of us of certain age will have had our teeth filled with unsightly metal fillings that blacken over time. Amalgam can also cause a number of problems, including bad reactions from the mercury once contained in the mix.  These fillings can be removed and replaced unless they are very large and then it might be better to have the filling changed for an inlay. You will not only look better but feel healthier with new fillings.

Fillings can now be made of a white material that looks more natural with your healthy teeth and can make the repair look almost invisible, giving you a beautiful smile and restoring your confidence.  New fillings are now made of a material called gloss ionema, or a better quality composite material that is made of silica and acrylic with resins.

New fillings are a great investment primarily in your health, but also in your happiness, and self- esteem. Book a FREE consultation at Same Day Teeth Team and make a new start.

Success or Failure: How to Stop Implants Falling Out

Posted on: April 11th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Having reached a stage in your life where through accident or ageing you have lost a tooth or a number of teeth you will be considering how to replace them and restore your smile and self-confidence.  Considering the alternatives, dentures, a bridge or dental implants, you may have decided upon implants but without the proper understanding of the procedure you risk complications and failure. The Same Day Teeth Suite wants all their patients to be well and happy with their dental implants for a long time. Only careful planning will lead to success.

It is very important for patients to understand that dental implant procedures are a medical procedure, and should be taken as seriously as any other surgical practice. Prior to surgery, the dentist must make a careful diagnosis and plan each case very thoroughly.  Such procedures are not a commodity and hours of planning are undertaken behind the scenes to ensure a successful outcome.

Not all patients are suitable candidates for dental implants. A  thorough examination is required with X-rays to determine the suitability of the patient. Only by the dentist carrying out a number of essential checks and satisfying themselves will your safety be ensured, will the risk of complications be decreased and the longevity of the implants increased.

The importance of using high quality, well fitting dental implants cannot be stressed enough.  The Same Day Teeth Suite commission only the best technicians using the finest materials to make their implants.  Not only does this allow the dentist to achieve the best result for the patient with natural looking, well-fitting dental implants but also extends the life of the implant.  If any of the components from the posts to the false teeth is skimped on with poor imitations, the patient must understand they are putting themselves at risk of complications and at risk of failure with the implants falling out.

The patient must play their part in the success of their dental implants by maintaining good oral hygiene.  Not only do you need to brush your teeth well twice a day and use mouthwash to keep your gums healthy but it is of paramount importance you pay regular visits to a qualified hygienist who can clean your teeth, gums and implants more thoroughly preventing disease and prolonging the life of your implants. If the implants are not well maintained, they will fail sooner.

Unfortunately, for these patients who came to see us having attended other dentists, their implants failed due to inadequate planning and poor hygiene.

It is very important for the patient to understand that implant dentistry is not an exact science. Complications can occur. Implants can fail, but by carrying out proper planning, proper execution, following maintenance protocols, the odds are in your favour and your implants will last a very long time.

Never Too Late: Regain your smile with dental implants in Leicester

Posted on: January 19th, 2016 by freshadmin No Comments

If you follow the rich and famous or read the glossy magazines, or are a fan of the Pogues, you will know Shane MacGowan is as famous for his gummy smile as he is for his signature song Fairytale Of New York.  And if you think his smile is just as gruesome as one of Grimm’s fairy tales, think again.  Shane MacGowan has had oral surgery and dental implants, proving it is never too late to have a new set of teeth and an attractive new smile.  You don’t have to be rich or famous to have your smile renewed with dental implants, and the SameDay Teeth Suite in Leicester will put down the metaphorical red carpet to welcome you.

At the age of 57, the Pogues frontman is showing off his new smile.  Years of partying and the high life had destroyed his teeth. Shane had dentures fitted seven years ago but said they made him, “look like a d**khead.”  Fortunately for Shane and many others like him, missing and infected teeth can now be replaced with dental implants, a new concept in replacement teeth.

Implant dentures are a great solution to missing teeth as, unlike traditional dentures, they look natural, you can eat and speak confidently, and never experience any embarrassing moments with your teeth coming loose.  You can enjoy all your favourite foods and smile for the camera.

The implants are made of tiny titanium posts surgically inserted and fixed in the jaw bone.  They are suitable for single tooth replacement or a whole new set of teeth. It is a painless procedure as your dentist will give you an anaesthetic and you can even have IV sedation ensuring you are deeply relaxed throughout your treatment.  As Shane said, “It was a bit swollen for the first few days but I’m feeling good now. I’m getting used to them now.”

Your new teeth are shaped and coloured, using the best materials, by our expert technicians to suit your face and look perfectly natural.  They also fit and function as natural teeth. The titanium implants hold your teeth firmly in place.

Shortly after the surgery, you should be able to go back to your normal routine. However, the implant needs to integrate with the bone and this usually takes 3- 4 months. The healing time varies from patient to patient. We also offer mini dental implants that are ideal for implant dentures and perfect for those who do not have lots of bone left as they are less invasive, quicker to place and less expensive.

If your implant surgery went well and no complications developed, you can have your implants checked at your normal dental check-ups twice a year. It is also crucial you see a hygienist regularly and to develop a good brushing and oral health routine.

Don’t wait until you feel like Shane MacGowan, “A Wreck Reborn,” but contact the SameDay Teeth Suite in Leicester to discuss your dental implants.
