Types of implant:

Full Implants

This method has completely evolved 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 an enormous advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to alternative methods. 

We start by planning out the procedure, and start with a scan to examine the patient and discover the best place to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the task has also improved greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or short-term bridge in a single day. The short-term bridge is then substituted with a permanent one after 3-4 months.

Multiple Tooth Implants


Multiple teeth implants are being used for patients with several absent 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. Changing these with implants can remove any anxiousness around a moving denture. We are regularly in a position 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 only one tooth is missing, an implant is often the best answer. Implants are usually more robust and longer lasting that other available choices, and do not have issues live moving around or impacting speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone around the implant becomes reinforced by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side don"t have any additional force that could cause issues in the future.
What are the advantages 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 do not lead to bone malfunction, affect smiling or hinder other activities that other 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. implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some alterations over the years.

No more anxiety: Together with your new implants you no longer require to stress about feeling down when you smile, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without anxiousness around your teeth.

Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, missing teeth can impact your face, and change how your smile looks. Dental implants help sustain your natural, beautiful face and smile.

Look after your jaw: The places left by missing teeth can result in further issues, including harm to your jawbone. If it does not hold the support of a teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its durability. Implants help to encourage bone growth and protects your jaw from deterioration.

Look after you teeth the natural way: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a glass, having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are being used to. You may brush, floss and wash your teeth and not 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 capacity to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.

Eat without concern: Dental implants are built to be strong and durable, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without panic!

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 speak or eat, you may find that dentures move, and have to be moved back in to the right put in place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you will be comfortable about your teeth not moving when you go about your day.

A reliable solution: Dental implants are thought to be one of the very most reliable and predictable alternatives when replacing missing teeth.
