Dental Implants in Broad Green
Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This technique has totally changed our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now able to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a huge benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to alternative methods.
We begin by planning out the procedure, and start with a scan to examine the patient and find the best area to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the operation has also decreased greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can walk away with a full mouth implant or short-term bridge on the same day. The short-term bridge is then replaced with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Teeth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are used for patients with several absent teeth absent, 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 stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are regularly able to implant a bridge attached to the implants if the absent teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Teeth Implants
When a single tooth is absent, an implant is usually the best solution. Implants are usually more robust and more durable that other available choices, and do not have issues live slipping or impacting speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone about the implant becomes supported by the implant, protecting against further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force that could cause issues in the future.
What exactly are the advantages 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 malfunction, 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 even with proper care will need to be replaced at least every ten years. Dental implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some adjustments over time.
No more anxiety: With your new dental implant you no longer need to fret about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without stress and anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, absent teeth can impact your face, and change how your smile looks. Dental implants help preserve your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The spaces left by absent teeth can result in further issues, including harm to your jawbone. If it does not have the support of a teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its strength. Implants helps encourage bone growth and protects your jaw from deterioration.
Take care of you teeth by natural means: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a glass, by having an implant installed you can maintain your mouth health how you are used to. You may brush, floss and rinse your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slide or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and may affect how you speak and your capability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without being anxious: Dental implants are created to be strong and durable, letting you eat your preferred foods without nervousness!
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 in to the right place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you can be self-confident about your tooth not moving when you go about your entire day.
A trusted solution: Dental implants are thought to be one of the very most reliable and predictable solutions when fixing a missing tooth.
