Dental Implants in Shirley
Types of implant:
This technique has completely modified 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 an enormous benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the operation, and minimises pain and stress compared to alternative methods.
We begin by planning out the operation, and start with a scan to examine the patient and discover the best place to install 4 dental implants. The time of the procedure has also decreased greatly, and patients with hardly any 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 Tooth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are used for patients with several absent teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Replacing these with implants can remove any stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are regularly able to implant a bridge mounted on 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 often the best solution. Implants are usually better and longer lasting that other options, and don"t have issues live slipping or affecting speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone about the implant becomes supported by the implant, preventing 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 alternatives, a dental implant feels and fits just like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone breakdown, impact 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 even with proper care will need to be replaced at least every 10 years. implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some adjustments over the years.
No more anxiety: With your new implants you no longer need to stress about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without stress and anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, missing teeth can impact your face, and change how your smile looks. Dental implants help keep your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The gaps left by missing teeth can result in further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not hold the support of an teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its durability. Implants helps encourage bone development and defends your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth by natural means: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a cup, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health the way you are used to. You may brush, floss and clean your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slip or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and could affect the way you speak and your ability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.
Eat without concern: Dental implants are created to be strong and durable, letting you eat your favourite foods without anxiousness!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, which means that so long as you clean it and get regular checkups you shouldn"t have any problems.
No movement: when you speak or eat, you might find that dentures move, and need to be moved back to the right put in place in your mouth. As your new implant is set, you will be assured about your teeth not moving when you go about your entire day.
A reliable solution: Dental implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when fixing a missing tooth.
