Full Arch and Full Mouth Dental Implant Treatments at Belmore Dental Include:
Many people who have lost their teeth find dentures hard to wear, this can be due to bone loss, insufficient palate, or sensitive gag reflex. Whatever is causing the problem, implant retained dentures could be the solution that you have been searching for to hold your dentures in place securely and comfortably. Implant retained dentures are made of high impact acrylic and are fixed securely in place by dental implants. As few as two implants could be needed for the lower jaw and usually four are required for the upper jaw, making this the most cost effective option for patients with no natural teeth remaining.
The benefits of implant retained dentures include:
This restoration option includes a slim-line horseshoe shaped bridge. Normally 4 implants are used in this case, to replace the teeth on the entire upper, lower or both jaws. This type of bridge is made from an acrylic or cobalt chrome framework for added strength and is then fixed to the dental implants using 'click fit' locator abutments or a titanium bar. The benefits of this type of option when compared to a standard denture include:
This type of restoration is a bespoke slim-line bridge, which is fixed in place, usually with 4-6 implants, to replace all of the teeth on the upper, lower or both jaws. This type of bridge is also made from acrylic with a chrome cobalt framework for increased strength and durability.
The benefits on this option include:

Zygomatic implants are another revelation in the world of dentistry. This type of implant is an incredible alternative for patients who are unsuitable for traditional implants, often due to severe bone loss all throughout the jawbone. Zygomatic implants are actually not placed into the jawbone, rather they are a longer type of implant that is placed higher up in the cheekbone. Research has shown that zygomatic implants have a really high rate of success, this would make sense as they are inserted into the thick, dense cheekbone which provides the highest level of support. However, many patients are actually unaware of this option, as there are only a handful of clinics in the UK that offer this treatment, it takes an advanced level of surgical skill. At Belmore Dental both of our implant surgeons, Dr Sinead McEnhill and Dr Joe McEnhill, offer zygomatic implants.
Feeling like yourself again – Your replacement teeth are the next best thing to healthy natural teeth in the way that they look, feel and function. They are securely fused into your jawbone, meaning you can smile and eat as normal. Other replacement options can lead to bone loss, and may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other every day activities.
Anti-aging – Something that might not automatically come to mind with regards to dental implants is their 'anti-aging' effect. A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken, not only will a perfect smile help to keep you looking your best, dental implants also stimulate your jawbone like natural teeth, helping to avoid bone loss and keeping your face supported, youthful and full looking.
Enjoy Your Food Again – If you've been wearing dentures or suffering with missing teeth, dental implants will honestly be life changing. Your palate won't be obstructed so you can fully enjoy the tastes and textures of your food, and because dental implants feel and behave very much like your own teeth, you can bite and chew without worrying.
Built to Last – Dental Implants provide a strong and stable solution for missing teeth. Dental implants require just as much care and maintenance as natural teeth, you must attend regular review appointments with your dentist and hygienist to ensure that your mouth remains healthy. Traditional tooth supported dental bridges only last around 5-7 years, at some point they will need to be replaced, while dental implants may need to be adjusted periodically, with proper care they can last a life time.
Keep your teeth in your mouth, not in a cup – Dental implants are a permanent, fixed solution to missing teeth. Allowing you to keep your teeth where they belong, rather than worrying about removing them to clean after eating and when sleeping.
Predictable and safe treatment – Dental implant treatment is a reliable and safe method for replacing missing teeth, with a track record of great long-term success.
