Dental Implants in Croydon
Types of implant:
This method has completely improved our ability to improve a full mouth of teeth, and we now have the ability to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is an enormous advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the operation, and minimises pain and stress compared to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the operation, starting with a scan to review the patient and discover the best location to install 4 dental implants. The time of the procedure has also improved greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or temporary bridge on the same day. The short-term 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 absent 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. Exchanging 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 missing teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Tooth Implants
When only one tooth is missing, an implant is usually the best solution. Implants are usually better and more durable that other choices, and do not have issues live moving or affecting speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone round the implant becomes backed by the implant, preventing further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional loading that could 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 will fit just like a natural tooth, and do not lead to bone malfunction, 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 ten years. implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some adjustments over the years.
Forget about anxiety: With your new dental implant you no longer require to stress about feeling down if you want to laugh, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live 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 keep your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The spaces left by missing teeth can result in further issues, including harm to your jawbone. If it does not contain the support of your teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its durability. Implants helps encourage bone development and helps to protect your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth by natural means: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a glass, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are used to. You are able to clean, floss and clean your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slip or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and could affect how you speak as well as your capability to pronounce words. As the implant directly replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.
Eat without being anxious: Dental implants are naturally strong and durable, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without stress and anxiety!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, meaning as long as you clean it and get regular checkups you shouldn"t have any problems.
No movement: when you talk or eat, you might find that dentures move, and need to be moved back in to the right put in place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you can be self-confident about your teeth not moving when you are about your day.
A trusted solution: Dental implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when fixing missing teeth.
