Dental Implants in Poplar
Types of implant:
This technique has totally altered 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 benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the procedure, starting with a scan to examine the patient and find the best area to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the task has also improved greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or temporary bridge on the same day. The non-permanent bridge is then substituted with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are being used for patients with several absent teeth lacking, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Changing these with implants can remove any nervousness around a moving denture. We are often in a position to implant a bridge mounted on 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 stronger and longer lasting that other available choices, and do not have issues live moving around or impacting on speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone surrounding 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 are the advantages of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other alternatives, a dental implant feels and fits 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 substituted at least every decade. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some changes over the years.
Forget about anxiety: Together with your new implants you no longer need to stress about feeling down when you laugh, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without nervousness around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and laugh: Unfortunately, lacking teeth can impact your face, and can affect how your laugh looks. Implants help preserve your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The places left by lacking teeth can result in further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not possess the support of the teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its strength. Implants helps encourage bone growth and protects your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth by natural means: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a glass, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health the way you are being used to. You are able to clean, floss and clean your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slip or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and may affect the way 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 getting worried: Implants are built to be strong and durable, letting you eat your favourite foods without nervousness!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, which means that so long as you clean it and get regular checkups you won"t have any problems.
No movement: when you talk or eat, you might find that dentures move, and have to be moved back in to the right place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you can be assured 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.
