Dental Implants in South Croydon
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 set teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a huge advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to traditional methods.
We begin by planning out the procedure, and start with a scan to review the patient and discover the best location to install 4 dental implants. The time of the operation has also decreased greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can leave with a complete mouth implant or non permanent bridge on the same day. The non-permanent bridge is then changed with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are being used for patients with several absent teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew up food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Updating 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 solution. Implants are usually stronger and more durable that other choices, and do not have issues live moving around or impacting on speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone round the implant becomes supported by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional loading 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 will fit just like a natural tooth, and do not lead to bone malfunction, influence smiling or hinder other activities that other 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 changed at least every 10 years. Dental implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some alterations over the years.
Forget about anxiety: With your new implants you no longer require to get worried about feeling down when you smile, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without stress around your teeth.

No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and may affect how you speak as well as your capability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.
