Dental Implants in Selhurst
Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This method has totally improved 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 great advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress compared 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 time of the task has also improved greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can walk away with a complete mouth implant or non permanent bridge on the same day. The temporary bridge is then substituted with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple tooth implants are being used for patients with several absent teeth absent, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Updating these with implants can remove any anxiety around a moving denture. We are regularly in a position to implant a bridge attached to the implants if the absent teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Tooth Implants
When a single tooth is absent, an implant is often the best answer. Implants are usually more robust and longer lasting that other available choices, and do not have issues live moving or impacting speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone surrounding 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 are the advantages of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other solutions, a dental implant feels and will fit like a natural tooth, and do not lead to bone break down, have an effect on 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 despite having proper care should be substituted 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: With your new implants you no longer require to worry about feeling down when you laugh, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and laugh: Unfortunately, absent 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 absent teeth can result in further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not possess the support of an teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its durability. Implants helps encourage bone growth and shields your jaw from deterioration.
Look after 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 are able to clean, floss and wash your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slip or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and may affect how you speak and your capability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without getting worried: Dental implants are naturally strong and durable, allowing you to eat your favourite foods without anxiety!
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 talk or eat, you may find that dentures move, and need to be moved back in to the correct place in your mouth. As your implant is fixed, you will be comfortable about your teeth not moving when you go about your day.
A reliable solution: Dental implants are regarded as one of the very most reliable and predictable solutions when replacing a missing tooth.
