Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This method has completely transformed our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now able to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a great benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the operation, and minimises pain and stress compared to traditional methods.
We begin by planning out the operation, and start with a scan to review the patient and find the best area to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the procedure has also decreased greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can walk away with a full mouth implant or temporary bridge on the same day. The temporary bridge is then changed with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple tooth implants are being used for patients with several missing teeth missing, 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. Updating these with implants can remove any stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are often able to implant a bridge attached to the implants if the missing teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Tooth Implants
When one tooth is missing, an implant is usually the best solution. Implants are usually more robust and more durable that other available choices, and don"t have issues live moving around or influencing speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone surrounding the implant becomes backed by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional loading that may cause issues in the future.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other solutions, 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 solutions do.
A long-term fix: More traditional options such as tooth-supported bridges generally last 5-7 years, and despite having proper care will need to be changed at least every ten years. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some adjustments over time.
No more anxiety: Together with your new implants you no longer need to be concerned about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without stress and anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, missing teeth can impact your face, and can affect how your smile looks. Implants help to maintain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The gaps left by missing teeth can lead to further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not possess the support of an teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its strength. Implants helps encourage bone development and defends your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth the natural way: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a cup, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are being used to. You are able to brush, floss and rinse your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slip or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and could affect how you speak and your capability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.
Eat without being anxious: Implants are built to be strong and durable, allowing you to eat your favourite foods without anxiousness!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, meaning as long as you clean it and get regular checkups you won"t have any problems.
No movement: when you talk or eat, you might find that dentures move, and need to be moved back in to the right place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you will be comfortable about your teeth not moving when you go about your entire day.
A reliable solution: Implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable solutions when fixing a missing tooth.
