Whether we use implants to securely anchor replacement teeth or restore multiple individual gaps, we can replace uncomfortable dentures with solid and permanent prostheses that mimic natural teeth so well that you’ll hardly spot the difference.
So, if you’re ready to say goodbye to dentures, we’ll be here to guide you through the multiple implant process.
Pedro Gutierres qualified at the prestigious Egas Moniz High Institute of Health Sciences in Lisbon in 2006, then completed a two-year advanced international education program at the prestigious New York University College of Dentistry before finally earning a Master’s degree in Implant Dentistry at Warwick University in 2011. Two years later, Dr Gutierres interrupted his professional activity and moved to Brazil, where he trained with some of the leading names in Implantology. He graduated from CETO and completed the APCD’s International Advanced Program in Implant Dentistry.
Our dentists can employ multiple methods and techniques to target multiple tooth loss. For example, each missing tooth does not always necessarily require individual implants to replace it.
We understand that cost is often an essential factor. And thanks to advancements in technology, we can use one implant to group several teeth, which is a more cost-effective and stable approach.
Even placing a minimum number of implants can restore natural chewing functions and eradicate any soreness or self-consciousness with removable dentures.
Cost: From £1,900
The advancement in dental implant technology means we can alleviate the need to damage any healthy, existing teeth by anchoring bridges to implants bonded with your jaw.
By approaching your missing teeth restoration this way, we can avoid further deteriorating bone in the jaw and protect your otherwise healthy teeth from the effects of traditional dental bridges.

Types of implant dentures:
Dentures have long seemed the only option for missing teeth. However, due to continual reduction in bone loss, dentures become looser over time, causing more slippages and further discomfort.
As we all know, the instability of dentures can lead to sore spots and embarrassing episodes when the dentures move when eating or speaking – this inevitably leads patients to transition from dentures to implants.
Using the jawbone to obtain stability, dental implants can secure dentures from ever moving again. With implant-secured dentures, you can avoid the added costs of porcelain crowns and opt for modern dentures instead.
Implant-supported dentures can improve the way you eat, speak and bite.
While it might sound easy to place a few implants and a few crowns, as implant experts, we know that proper attentive planning is essential in the initial stages of restoring multiple teeth.
Choosing an experienced dentist will be essential to ensure essential aspects like harmonious bites and safe structural integrity, which will determine the longevity of the results.
We will happily work with a referring dentist on your case – as London’s finest implant practitioners; we take on some more of the complex work that your local dentist might not be able to offer.
Once we are happy to discharge you from our care, we will follow up with your local dentist to ensure the best aftercare moving forward.
Our leading implant dentist Dr Gutierres will position the implants into your jawbone under a local anaesthetic in our dental practice in Maida Vale, London.
From here, we will need to wait for the implant to fuse to your jawbone, which could take a few months. However, do not worry; we will fit temporary teeth simultaneously as the implant placement is a short-term restoration.
Once the jaw has fully healed, we will place an abutment that will fix onto the implant and, at the same time, hold your replacement teeth (crown, bridge or denture)
When it comes to multiple tooth loss, the superiority of dental implants means that they are an option you should consider over all others.
Patients who often ignore missing teeth face several consequences, which usually amount to more costly procedures being required in the future when reconsidering dental implants.
Consequences include impacts on self-esteem, further tooth loss, decreased bone mass (bone reabsorption), facial sagging, gum disease, wobbly unstable teeth and tooth movement.
With dental implants, you have multiple options to restore your smile. But finding the right one for you can be difficult, especially when you do not know much about implant dentistry.
As specially trained implant dentists, we can be your guide. Some patients prefer fixed, permanent solutions to feel the normality of a full mouth of teeth again. At the same time, some patients opt for non-permanent solutions like regular bridgework or dentures to replace their missing teeth.
However, there is also a third option, where patients like to combine the permanent advantage of dental implants with non-fixed, removable replacement teeth in the form of dentures.
Often the final decision can come down to cost and the state of your oral condition; we can work with you to assess your oral situation and prescribe the most suitable treatments within your budget.
We can create a more stable, comfortable, and permanent smile that will serve you for a lifetime with dental implants.
Whether you need an implant placed for single tooth loss or multiple tooth loss, the Maida Smiles cosmetic team can help ensure your implants blend flawlessly with existing teeth.
A loan of £5,000.00 over 12 months would cost you £416.66 per month at a representative 0.0% APR. The total amount of credit would be £5,000.00, to which we would add £0.00 (0.0% p.a.). If you were to take out the loan today, you’d pay the first £416.74 upfront and then 11 payments of £416.66 each month.
We don’t just treat patients in London – they travel across the UK to reap the rewards of our techniques and IV sedation.
