Essential Postscript: Avoid Infection to Dental Implants

Posted on: September 12th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Perhaps you are an existing patient of the Same Day Teeth Suite, or you had your implants fitted elsewhere.  No Matter. What does matter, however, is how you care for your dental implants in the future.  Not an afterthought but an essential postscript to your treatment to avoid infection, failure or complications, going forward.  You need your implants to last a long time and the Same Day Teeth Suiteare here to see you prevent any problems.

The quality of the dental implants and how well you care for them dictates their longevity and whether you have a trouble-free experience.  We use high-quality implants made by well-established companies who have invested in research and technology to provide dentists with an excellent and trusted product.  We don’t use anything less than the best as dental implants need to integrate and heal well in the jaw bone for a long lifespan.

The implant abutment, or prop, is an important factor in ensuring the dental implant will not get infected and fail. There are various types of abutments available, but we use cad cam abutments for our patients wherever possible.  CAD-CAM abutments are milled using computer technology to make a precision fit.  With such an accurate fit, there are no micro gaps, avoiding the risk of failure. By using good quality, strong abutments, they can withstand the bite force, a potential risk in lesser props. The bite force on a dental implant is increased, as opposed to the bite force on a natural tooth. Experienced technicians using computer technology take this into account when engineering our implants to make sure they last as long as possible.

Not only do the abutments have to be well made and precision engineered but the design of the crown and the bridge is of no less magnitude.  The choice of quality materials and the experience of the technician play a vital role in the superiority of the finished bridge and crown.  The best workmanship not only ensures the longevity of the finished product but makes sure it does not feel alien in your mouth.  Ill-fitting crowns and bridges not only feel uncomfortable but are difficult to clean, leading to infections.  We only use crowns and bridges that are made using advanced technology giving you natural-looking crowns and bridges that fit well.  You deserve the best, and we only fit the best.

Predominantly, in caring for your dental implants, it is important to visit the hygienist every six months.  The hygienist will be able to clean all plaque from your implants and clean those inaccessible areas below the gum line. They will also be able to check how well you clean your teeth at home and advise you, spotting problem areas before any infection sets in. Brushing, flossing and using mouthwash at home is an essential part of your care routine but is only half as effective as including regular visits to the hygienist in prolonging the life of your dental implants. Not all hygienists have the necessary skills or equipment to look after implants.  Be sure to check their experience and qualifications. At our Nottingham clinic, we have a qualified hygienist who will look after your implants expertly.

If you need dental implants, would like your old implants replaced or need to see a hygienist, book an initial consultation.

Life and Love can begin again with New Fillings

Posted on: April 18th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

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.



New patient attended from another clinic had all implants fallen out after one year


New patient attended after having implants abroad( 1 year later) all implants failed due to inadequate planning.

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.

5 Wise Reasons To Delay Implants When Pregnant

Posted on: February 7th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Pregnancy can be a time of joy, a time when you blossom and look your best.  Alternatively, it can put your body under great stress.  You may find your pregnancy has caused unexpected dental problems and you may have lost a tooth.  You want to fill the gap and restore your teeth and you don’t want to delay.

That is perfectly understandable but the Same Day Teeth Suite issues a word of caution. Wait until your baby is born and they will happily help you with your dental implants and give you even more to smile about.

1. Increased risk of complications

Pregnancy is not an absolute contraindication, not a no-no, against having dental implants but as this is a surgical procedure, it is best not to put your baby at risk unless there is an urgent medical need. A dental implant is a tiny titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to hold the artificial tooth.  The jaw bone needs time to heal and fuse before the artificial tooth is fitted.  Any surgery during pregnancy is fraught with complications and is best avoided if you have a choice.

2. Best to avoid X-Ray radiation exposure

Before going ahead with the surgical procedure, you will need x-rays to determine the exact position of an implant.  Although dental x-rays are safe for pregnant women during the first and third trimesters of pregnancy, there are risks associated with the exposure of an unborn child to the small amount of radiation used in radiology. Even though a dental diagnostic x-ray focuses on the mouth area only, many choose to avoid x-rays altogether while pregnant just to be safe.

3. Avoid anaesthesia

Although studies show that dental treatment with local anaesthetics is safe during pregnancy, it is advisable to steer clear of sedation or general anaesthesia that renders you unconscious during these nine months. Anaesthetics are powerful drugs which you need to avoid, so they don’t potentially cause harm to your unborn child.

4. Reduce stress

High anxiety levels in an expectant mother can affect the development of a baby. An elective surgery is likely to induce unnecessary worry during an already stressful time. Your hormones, at this time, can cause mood swings and depression which are out of your control.  Relax and concentrate on your new baby, don’t add to your concerns and you will be ready for your implant after the birth.

5. Implants are best placed after you baby is born

Once your baby is born, you can visit the dentist for your dental implant as soon as you are ready.  If you are healthy and happy, there is no reason to delay.  If you are breastfeeding, your dentist will advise you on the best solution.  After surgery and the healing period, your artificial tooth will be made by our skilled technicians with the aid of modern technology.  The colour, shape and size as well as the function of your new tooth will be a great replacement and will soon restore your confidence. With baby’s first smile, you will be smiling too

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.

From Damaged To Fixed Teeth In Loughborough: A Case Study

Posted on: August 18th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

In this video watch how we treated a patient with a damaged front tooth that could not be saved and had not enough space to place the dental implant so we also provided 6 months braces.

It’s perfectly natural to be worried by dental treatments, especially as a large number of us have had difficult experiences with dentists in the past. We’ve all tried to bury our heads in the sand when it comes to making the first positive steps towards a healthier mouth, but ultimately the complications that can result from leaving these issues unattended are likely to become much more serious treatments to undergo. Here at the Same Day Teeth Suite, it’s our job to provide you with a comfortable environment to receive the treatments you need, all delivered at a pace that suits you.

Crooked teeth or a crowded gum line are exactly the kinds of dental problem that many of us may feel we can put off, but in reality it is something that needs to be addressed by professionals as soon as possible.

But what if I am already undergoing a separate run of dental treatment, is it possible for me to combine the two to resolve my crooked teeth or crowded gum problems?

It’s a question that is asked of the team quite regularly and the answer, in short, is yes – you can combine different dental treatments.

In the video you’ll see a patient who has a front tooth damaged as well as having crooked teeth but we were able to treat them with ease. Using six month braces in order to align their teeth and create enough space for the planned implant, to replace the broken front tooth with a dental implant that matched his natural teeth in size, shape and density.

The patient was hugely impressed with the results – just one more example of the work we do here, and how we thoroughly assess each patient’s needs before proceeding with the treatment.

Happy with Implants: Confessions from a Bride To Be In Leicester!

Posted on: August 14th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

Watch this video to hear about the experience of this bride to be at the Same Day Teeth Suite:

If you’re getting married soon, it’s more than likely that this is the day that you have been building up to your whole life. Surrounded by friends and family to celebrate the love of your life is a truly special occasion, and one that everyone wants to look their best for. If you’ve been debating the need for a dental implant with time running out before the big day, then look no further than the Same Day Teeth Suite.

One particular patient had been weighing up her options for a long while before she decided to get in touch with our team in Leicester. With the big day on the horizon, she felt that her options were limited and wanted to consider the professional opinions of the Same Day Teeth Suite staff. The decision wasn’t an easy one to make:

“I had already been feeling nervous for obvious reasons before I decided to go to the Same Day Teeth Suite for work on my teeth. It didn’t help that I’d been with my other dentist for years, and at that practice they helped me get over some difficult experiences that I’d had with other dentists in the past, so this decision was a particularly tough one to make. Huge change when it comes to things such as your dental health is something that I don’t usually welcome, so that’s where the nerves were coming from.”

After much deliberation, she realised that her big day was too important to her, and arranged a consultation. Despite approaching our team – who were, at the point, just another daunting dental practice to her – it appeared that she was pleasantly surprised by her experiences:

“Since getting here I have been extremely impressed. Everyone has been really, really friendly. I have been made completely aware of every step of my procedure and the staff have gone out of their way to make sure I’m comfortable. It’s been absolutely great.

It wasn’t just a question of our positive attitudes, either – that can only take patients with previous preconceptions of the dentists so far. The treatment we were able to provide ultimately proved wholly successful, and left the bride to be elated, just in time for her big day.

“In terms of the results, I’m extremely pleased. I have had to get my tooth removed and then some bone grafting done, as well as an implant, and I can honestly say that it’s been brilliant from all aspects of the treatment. As I said, I’m so happy with it all and the results are fantastic – as I was in between procedures, I was worried how I was going to end up looking for my big day, but everything was taken care of in such a professional manner.




I’d recommend the Same Day Teeth Suite to anyone.”
