Dental Implants in South Bromley
Types of implant:
This technique has totally changed our ability to improve a full mouth of teeth, and we now able to install set teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a great benefit 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 examine the patient and discover the best area to install 4 dental implants. The time of the task has also advanced 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 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 missing teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew up food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Replacing these with implants can remove any stress around a moving denture. We are regularly able 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 one tooth is missing, an implant is often the best answer. Implants are usually stronger and more durable that other available choices, and don"t have issues live slipping or influencing speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone surrounding the implant becomes backed by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side don"t have any additional force that could cause issues in the future.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other solutions, a dental implant feels and will fit just like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone breakdown, 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 even with proper care should 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.
No more anxiety: With your new implants you no longer need to worry about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without stress 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 to retain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The places left by missing teeth can lead to further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not contain the support of a teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its durability. Implants help to encourage bone growth and defends your jaw from deterioration.
Take care of you teeth the natural way: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a glass, by having an implant installed you can maintain your mouth health the way you are used to. You are able to clean, floss and rinse your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slide or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and may affect the way you speak as well as your capability to pronounce words. As the implant directly replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without worry: Dental implants are created to be strong and durable, letting you eat your favorite 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 need to be moved back in to the correct place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you can be confident about your tooth not moving when you are about your day.
A reliable solution: Dental implants are regarded as one of the most reliable and predictable solutions when fixing a missing tooth.
