Why make it any harder?

We all need to eat. We all need to smile, to talk, laugh and yawn. When you have all your teeth in place and in good working order, you probably never even consider how hard life might be if being able to do any or all of these things became hard, or even impossible.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation in MaryleboneBut start to lose your teeth and you soon find out. Lose most or all of them and, even if you have dentures, these simple and important tasks can become unbearable. You may find yourself turning down dinner invitations because you don’t want to try crunchy or chewy foods. You may find yourself smiling with lips tightly shut, if at all, and as for bursting out laughing, forget it. There is so much fundamental pleasure tied up with eating and yawning, laughing and chatting, that when you’re more worried about making a twit of yourself because of your teeth, pleasure and confidence drain away.

If this is how your life has been for a while, maybe now is the time to invest in improving your quality of life with a full mouth rehabilitation here with David Madruga in Marylebone.

With a full mouth rehabilitation, we replace all of your teeth with dental implants. This may mean having to remove your remaining teeth, which are already on the way out.

This gives us a blank canvas on which to rebuild your smile so that it looks great and works well too.

The great thing about dental implants is that one implant can support several teeth on a bridge, so you won’t need to have 32 of them. We do a great treatment called All-on-4 that allows us to replace an entire arch of teeth on just 4-6 dental implants.

We will fit you with temporary dentures while your implants are given time (somewhere from 2-6 months, depending on your individual rate of healing) to fuse with your jawbone. Then we fit you with custom-made crowns that are designed to look like your own teeth. These are permanently fixed in place, so there’s no need to worry about wobbling. You just treat them as carefully as your own natural teeth and they can last for decades.

We can help you get your mouth back

It can be so very disheartening to watch your teeth fail one by one over the years. It does seem that if one goes, the others soon follow. They need each other to remain in place in the jawbone and when there is a gap left by a missing tooth, the other teeth can start to wander, tip into the gap and even fall out. Or maybe, you were not born with healthy teeth and it has always been a big struggle to keep them in good condition.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation in MaryleboneWhatever the reason, if you have lost or are about to lose all your teeth, do not sink into despair. At David Madruga in Marylebone, full mouth rehabilitation can give you back your smile and your ability to chew, laugh and speak with complete freedom, by using dental implant restorations.

How it works

As the name implies, full mouth rehabilitation is a big job. We need to plan it carefully, and to do so we will need to do CT scans, and take x-rays. This is so that we know exactly where to place the dental implants without damaging nerves or blood vessels.

If you have been without teeth for a while, you may need to have extra procedures, such as bone grafts or sinus lifts, so that your jawbone will be strong enough to take the implants, integrate with them and withstand the incredible forces created by chewing.

We will extract any remaining, failing teeth and fit between four and six dental implants per arch. You will then wait a few weeks while the dental implants integrate with your jawbone, and during this time you will wear temporary restorations.

Then we will fit you with handmade porcelain crowns that will have been created to suit your mouth perfectly. All you need to do to look after your implants is to brush them carefully twice a day, floss your teeth and then come in for a check-up and to see the hygienist twice a year.
