Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This technique has totally modified our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now have the ability to install set teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a huge benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the operation, and minimises pain and stress compared to alternative methods.
We begin by planning out the operation, and start with a scan to review the patient and discover the best place to install 4 dental implants. The time of the task has also improved greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can leave with a complete mouth implant or short-term bridge in a single day. The short-term bridge is then substituted with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are used for patients with several absent teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew up food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Updating these with implants can remove any anxiety around a moving denture. We are often in a position to implant a bridge 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 answer. Implants are usually more robust and longer lasting that other options, and do not have issues live moving around or impacting speech like dentures often 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 could cause issues in the future.
What exactly are the advantages of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other alternatives, a dental implant feels and will fit just like a natural tooth, and do not lead to bone breakdown, affect 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 will need to be substituted at least every decade. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some alterations over the years.
No more anxiety: With your new dental implant you no longer need to be anxious about feeling down when you laugh, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and laugh: Unfortunately, missing teeth can impact your face, and change how your laugh looks. Dental implants help to maintain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The spaces left by missing teeth can lead to further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not hold the support of an teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its strength. Implants help to encourage bone growth and shields your jaw from deterioration.
Look after 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 used to. You can brush, floss and rinse your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slip or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and could affect the way you speak and your ability to pronounce words. As the implant directly replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without being anxious: Dental implants are built to be strong and durable, letting you eat your favorite foods without stress and anxiety!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, meaning as long as you clean it and get regular checkups you shouldn"t have any problems.
No movement: when you speak or eat, you might find that dentures move, and need to be moved back in to the right place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you can be assured about your tooth not moving when you go about your entire day.
A reliable solution: Dental implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when replacing missing teeth.
