Dental Implants in Mill Meads
Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This method has completely modified our ability to improve a full mouth of teeth, and we now able to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is an enormous benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the operation, and minimises pain and stress compared to traditional methods.
We begin by planning out the operation, and start with a scan to examine the patient and find the best place to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the procedure has also advanced greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or short-term bridge in a single day. The short-term bridge is then replaced with a permanent 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 may cause real stress in day-today life. Upgrading these with implants can remove any anxiousness around a moving denture. We are regularly able to implant a bridge attached 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 more robust and longer lasting that other available choices, and don"t have issues live moving or influencing speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone about the implant becomes supported by the implant, avoiding further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force 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 fits like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone malfunction, influence smiling or hinder other activities that alternative solutions do.
A long-term fix: More traditional options such as tooth-supported bridges generally last 5-7 years, and even with proper care should be replaced at least every 10 years. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some alterations over time.
No more anxiety: Together with your new dental implant you no longer need to fret about feeling down when you laugh, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without anxiousness 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 sustain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The areas left by missing teeth can result in further issues, including harm to your jawbone. If it does not hold the support of the teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its durability. Implants help to encourage bone growth and defends your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth by natural means: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a glass, having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are used to. You are able to clean, floss and rinse your teeth rather than 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 capacity to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without stress: Dental implants are naturally strong and durable, letting you eat your favorite foods without anxiety!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, meaning so 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 have to be moved back to the right put in place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you will be self-confident about your teeth not moving when you go about your entire day.
A trusted solution: Dental implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable solutions when replacing missing teeth.
