Dental Implants in Bow
Types of implant:
This technique 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 benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress compared to traditional methods.
We begin by planning out the procedure, starting with a scan to review the patient and discover the best area to install 4 dental implants. The time of the procedure has also decreased greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can walk away with a full mouth implant or temporary bridge on the same day. The short-term bridge is then changed with a permanent one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple tooth implants are being used for patients with several missing teeth lacking, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew up food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Upgrading these with implants can remove any stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are often in a position to implant a bridge to the implants if the lacking teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Tooth Implants
When one tooth is lacking, an implant is often the best solution. Implants are usually more robust and longer lasting that other options, and do not have issues live moving or impacting on speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone around the implant becomes reinforced 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 benefits 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 do not lead to bone malfunction, influence 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 despite having proper care will need to be changed at least every ten years. implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some modifications over the years.
No more anxiety: Together with your new dental implant you no longer require to worry about feeling down if you want to 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, lacking teeth can impact your face, and change how your laugh looks. Implants help hold on to your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The places left by lacking teeth can result in further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not have the support of an teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its strength. Implants helps encourage bone growth and shields your jaw from deterioration.
Take care of you teeth the natural way: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a cup, having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are being used to. You can clean, floss and wash your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slide or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and may affect how you speak as well as your ability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.
Eat without worry: Implants are built to be strong and durable, allowing you to eat your favourite foods without nervousness!
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 slipping: when you speak or eat, you might find that dentures move, and need to be moved back in to the correct place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you will be self-confident about your tooth not moving when you go about your entire day.
A reliable solution: Implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when changing a missing tooth.
