Teeth-In-a-day, Bar Attachment Dentures and Full Mouth Implants
Replacing all your teeth has revolutionized the lives of people wearing dentures. The most common implant procedure to replace all the teeth in your upper and/or lower jaw is the Bar Attachment Denture procedure. Pioneered by Nobel Biocare. This allows for any remaining teeth to be removed, 4 implants to be placed and a full set of teeth to be attached within the same day. The procedure is usually performed under IV sedation so the patient sleeps through the entire process. The concept of walking in with your dentures or failing teeth and walking out with fixed implant supported teeth is what people want and is a very satisfying service to offer.
Wayne has an in office CT machine, 3D virtual planning software and a 3D printer to print the surgical guides. The rooms have state of the art sedation facilities with centrally monitored recovery rooms and dedicated registered nurses to monitor your recovery. Your dentist may provide the teeth to go on the implants and they are able to use our facilities for this or they might have you return to their office later in the day for attachment of the teeth.
As an indication of costs for Bar Attachment Denture
Waynes Surgery cost includes IV sedation, teeth removal and 4 implants $8700 incl GST. If the other jaw is treated at the same time then this is $6800 for the second jaw.
If zygomatic implants are required these are charged at $3800 per implant, the indication for these would be worked out at your consultation appointment.
As a general guide to the teeth to go on top there are immediate temporary teeth and the final teeth in 3-6 months time. The temporary teeth are very useful to have; say in 10 years if you require a repair to the permanent teeth then the temporary teeth can be secured back on the implants while the final teeth are sent to a lab for repair. Dentists or prosthodontists charge approximately $4000 for the temporary bridge and $13000 incl GST for the final bridge (these prices would need to be confirmed with the Dentist or prosthodontist)
Replacing all your teeth in one jaw with immediate and final teeth would cost approximately $28,000. Replacing both jaws would cost approximately $48,000. There are a number of variations to this which can reduce cost, such as not having immediate lower teeth. These many options need to be discussed with Wayne and your dentist.
Our prices are very competitive. Having a local specialist perform your surgery with the best facilities is unbeatable on price, quality and convenience.
TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR provides patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure that lasts about an hour. This technology was recently developed by Nobel Biocare and allows for collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a final prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. The computer-guided implant surgery results in less postoperative discomfort, less swelling and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities the next day.
The process starts when a CT scan is taken of the patient’s jawbone. This CT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jawbone that can then be used in virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are more accurate implant placement, and less chair time for the patient at the surgery office.
Wayne introduced zygomatic implants to Wellington in 2012 and has been providing this excellent solution with extremely high success to a range of patients who would otherwise be unable to have implants. Zygomatic implants can be provided under IV sedation and used in combination with conventional implants or as an Bar Attachment Denture type arrangement termed Quad Zygomatic implants. The main advantage of zygomatic implants – as with Bar Attachment Denture is that bone grafting is not required and teeth can immediately be put on the implants in the same day.
There are very few situations were implants and immediate loading cannot be done.
Meeting with Wayne, having a CBCT scan and consultation will give you a clear understanding of what can be done, the costs and timing of your new fixed teeth.
