Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This technique has totally altered our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now have the ability to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a great advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress compared to alternative methods.
We start by planning out the procedure, starting with a scan to examine the patient and find the best place to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the procedure has also decreased greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can walk away with a complete mouth implant or non permanent bridge in a single day. The non-permanent bridge is then replaced with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple tooth implants are being used for patients with several absent teeth absent, which can cause significant issues such as not having the ability to chew up food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Replacing these with implants can remove any stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are often able to implant a bridge mounted on the implants if the absent teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Tooth Implants
When a single tooth is absent, an implant is usually the best solution. Implants are usually better and more durable that other available choices, and don"t have issues live moving around or impacting speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone round the implant becomes reinforced by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force that could cause issues in the future.
What exactly are the benefits of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other alternatives, a dental implant feels and fits just like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone break down, impact smiling or hinder other activities that alternative alternatives do.
A long-term fix: More traditional options such as tooth-supported bridges generally last 5-7 years, and even with proper care should be replaced at least every 10 years. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some changes over the years.
No more anxiety: With your new dental implant you no longer require to fret about feeling down if you want to laugh, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without stress and anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and laugh: Unfortunately, absent teeth can impact your face, and change how your laugh looks. Implants help to sustain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The areas left by absent teeth can result in further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not contain the support of your teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its strength. Implants help to encourage bone growth and helps to protect your jaw from deterioration.
Take care of you teeth by natural means: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a cup, by having an implant installed you can maintain your mouth health the way you are being used to. You are able to brush, floss and clean your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slide or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and may affect the way you speak and your capacity to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without being anxious: Implants are naturally strong and durable, allowing you to eat your preferred foods without stress!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, which means that so long as you clean it and get regular checkups you won"t have any problems.
No movement: when you talk or eat, you may find that dentures move, and need to be moved back to the right place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you can be confident about your tooth not moving when you go about your day.
A trusted solution: Implants are thought to be one of the very most reliable and predictable alternatives when fixing missing teeth.
