Dental Implants in Beddington
Types of implant:
This technique has completely improved 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 huge advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to traditional methods.
We begin by planning out the procedure, starting with a scan to review the patient and discover the best place to install 4 dental implants. The time of the task has also advanced greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can walk away with a full mouth implant or non permanent bridge on the same day. The non-permanent bridge is then replaced 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 being able to chew food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Exchanging these with implants can remove any anxiety around a moving denture. We are regularly able to implant a bridge mounted on 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 stronger and more durable that other choices, and do not have issues live slipping or affecting speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone surrounding the implant becomes backed by the implant, preventing further resorption and teeth on each side don"t have any additional loading that could cause issues in the future.
What exactly are the benefits of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other solutions, a dental implant feels and will fit just like a natural tooth, and do not lead to bone break down, affect smiling or hinder other activities that other 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 replaced at least every decade. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some modifications over the years.
Forget about anxiety: Together with your new implants you no longer need to be anxious about feeling down when you smile, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, missing teeth can impact your face, and change how your smile looks. Implants help retain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The places left by missing teeth can result in further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not have the support of your teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its strength. Implants helps encourage bone growth and protects your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth by natural means: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a glass, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health the way you are being used to. You are able to clean, floss and rinse 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 teeth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without being anxious: Implants are created to be strong and durable, letting you eat your favourite foods without panic!
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 speak or eat, you may find that dentures move, and need to be moved back to the right place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you can be comfortable about your teeth not moving when you are about your day.
A reliable solution: Implants are regarded as one of the most reliable and predictable solutions when changing a missing tooth.
