Dental Implants in Beddington
Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This method has totally transformed our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now able to install set teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a huge advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress compared to alternative methods.
We begin by planning out the procedure, starting with a scan to examine the patient and find the best area to install 4 dental implants. The time of the task has also advanced greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or non permanent bridge in a single day. The non-permanent bridge is then replaced with a permanent 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 having the ability to chew up food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Upgrading these with implants can remove any nervousness around a moving denture. We are regularly in a position 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 a single tooth is missing, an implant is often the best solution. Implants are usually better and longer lasting that other available choices, and don"t have issues live slipping or affecting speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone surrounding the implant becomes reinforced by the implant, protecting against 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 like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone malfunction, have an impact on 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 should be replaced at least every decade. implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some alterations over the years.
Forget about anxiety: Together with your new implants you no longer need to stress about feeling down when you smile, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without nervousness 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 keep 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 have support of your teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its strength. Implants help to encourage bone development and shields your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth by natural means: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a cup, having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are used to. You are able to brush, floss and clean your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slide or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and may affect how you speak and your ability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without worry: Implants are built to be strong and durable, allowing you to eat your preferred foods without anxiety!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, which means that so long as you clean it and get regular checkups you shouldn"t have any problems.
No slipping: when you talk 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 new implant is set, you will be assured about your teeth not moving when you go about your day.
A reliable solution: Implants are thought to be one of the very most reliable and predictable alternatives when changing a missing tooth.
