Are Implants Better Than Dentures?
Two of our most popular cosmetic treatments are implants and dentures. Both treatments can achieve a fantastic result that restores your confident smile, but this depends on what’s best for you. “We will offer a solution that can achieve the perfect smile you can be confident with.”Dr David Bloom

At a Glance
For some people, implants are a better fit for treatment. However, for others, dentures would be the more suitable alternative.
Both treatments are excellent in their respect. The success and longevity of any treatment depend on the appropriateness of each treatment to the individual case.
They each become the proper treatment in the appropriate circumstances.
You can also choose to have dentures supported by implants. So you have implants placed in the jaw and a removable denture that fits securely on top.
The best way of choosing between dentures and implants is to look at the advantages of each treatment and see which you would prefer.

At The Perfect Smile, we understand that patients may be naturally nervous when thinking of undergoing dental implant surgery.
We want to reassure you that the dental implant treatment is not painful due to the proper use of local anaesthetics to numb the bone and gum deeply.
We can also use sedation techniques that also contribute to no pain or discomfort. More.
- Step 1: We will start the process with a highly detailed and thorough comprehensive examination and assessment. We will then construct a customised treatment plan and design your implant treatment.
- Step 2: An implantologist surgically places your new implant(s) in your mouth.
- Step 3: We will assess your healing on this review appointment and make sure everything is going as planned.
- Step 4: The dentist records and impressions to construct the implant’s top part (post and crown).
- Step 5: The dentist will fit the final part of the implant (post and crown).
- Step 6: Your final appointment allows you to have any further refining cosmetic enhancements or minor adjustments.
- Minimal appointments: Unlike traditional dental implant surgery, you will need fewer appointments
- No lengthy treatment time: The healing time is fast and effective, though individual to each person.
- When you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone that holds the tooth in place will diminish in height, width, and volume. This may affect the immediate and final appearance of the gum tissue in this area and possibly the surrounding teeth.
- The larger the width of bone or the height of the bone, the wider and longer implant can be. A wider and longer implant increases implant stability and thus success. We assess the bone height and width by taking digital radiographs or by taking a CT Scan. More.
The price of a dental implant can depend on whether any further treatments are needed to make sure your implant is a success.

Implants are colour matched and then shaped to blend in with your existing teeth. To the naked eye, an implant is very hard to spot.
Successful Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime
Once the implant has fused with your jawbone and tissues, the artificial titanium implant acts as an ordinary root.
When we implant a titanium implant into the jawbone, it becomes part of your oral foundation.
This offers several health benefits that include preventing any bone loss whilst supporting the jawbone structure and reducing the risk of gum disease. More.
“If treated correctly, dental implants can last from ten to twenty-five years or more.”
