Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This method has totally modified our ability to improve 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 great advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the operation, and minimises pain and stress compared to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the operation, and start with a scan to examine the patient and discover the best area to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the procedure has also advanced greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or non permanent bridge on the same day. The non-permanent bridge is then replaced with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple tooth implants are used for patients with several missing teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Changing these with implants can remove any stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are regularly 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 a single tooth is missing, an implant is often the best solution. Implants are usually better and longer lasting that other options, and don"t have issues live moving or influencing speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone round the implant becomes reinforced by the implant, avoiding further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force that may cause issues in the future.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other alternatives, a dental implant feels and fits like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone break down, impact 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 despite having proper care will need to be replaced at least every decade. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some modifications over the years.
No more anxiety: With your new dental implant you no longer need to stress about feeling down when you 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, missing teeth can impact your face, and can affect how your laugh looks. Dental implants help to maintain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The places left by missing teeth can lead to further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not contain the support of a teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its durability. Implants helps encourage bone growth and defends your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth the natural way: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a cup, having an implant installed you can maintain your mouth health the way you are used to. You may clean, floss and rinse your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slip or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and may affect the way 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 getting worried: Dental implants are built to be strong and durable, letting you eat your preferred foods without anxiety!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, which means that as long as you clean it and get regular checkups you won"t have any problems.
No movement: when you speak or eat, you might find that dentures move, and have to be moved back to the correct place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you can be comfortable about your teeth not moving when you are about your entire day.
A reliable solution: Dental implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when replacing a missing tooth.
