For those who are considering dental implants, it’s natural to have concerns about being without teeth during the treatment period, as it can impact your appearance, functionality, and overall well-being. Let’s delve into the topic of temporary tooth replacement options during the implant process.

Will I Be Without Teeth During the Implant ProcessTemporary Tooth Replacement Options

During the implant process, we will offer temporary tooth replacement options to ensure that you never have to be without teeth. These options include removable dentures, temporary crowns, and flipper dentures.

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures are a common temporary tooth replacement option during the implant process. These dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth and can be easily inserted and removed. They provide you with the ability to chew, speak, and smile confidently while your implants are healing. Removable dentures can be partial, replacing only a few missing teeth, or full, replacing an entire arch of teeth.

Temporary Crowns

Temporary crowns are another temporary solution for tooth replacement during the implant process. These crowns are typically made from acrylic or other temporary materials and are designed to fit over the implant abutments. Temporary crowns are created to resemble natural teeth and provide you with a functional and aesthetic solution while your permanent dental restorations are being fabricated.

Flipper Dentures

Flipper dentures, also known as acrylic partial dentures, are another option for temporary tooth replacement. These dentures consist of a gum-colored acrylic base and replacement teeth attached to it. Flipper dentures are lightweight, easily removable, and provide a temporary solution for replacing one or more missing teeth during the implant process. They are designed to blend in with your natural teeth, offering a temporary aesthetic solution.

Book a Consultation with Our Dentist

The best way to determine which temporary tooth replacement option is most suitable for you during the implant process is to consult with our dentist. We will evaluate your specific case, consider factors such as the number of missing teeth, the condition of your remaining teeth, and your overall oral health. Based on this assessment, we will recommend the most appropriate temporary tooth replacement option to ensure your comfort, functionality, and aesthetics throughout the implant process.

Great dentist and hygienist, however the waiting room had no wifi (and no signal) which meant I couldn’t work when waiting. When I asked if there was wifi, I was just told ‘no’ by the receptionist. I was going to add a suggestion to the box, but there was no pen.

I have attended this practice for many years and I never fail to be impressed by the quality of the work carried out by both the dentists and the dental hygienists. Procedures are explained clearly and in such a friendly manner. And most importantly despite having some major work carried out on a few occasions I did not feel any pain during, or after, the treatment. I would also like to pont out that the reception staff are so efficient, friendly and most helpful. This is an outstanding dental practice.
