Dental Implants in Stratford Marsh
Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This technique has completely evolved 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 huge benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress compared to alternative methods.
We start by planning out the procedure, and start with a scan to examine the patient and find the best area to install 4 dental implants. The time of the procedure has also advanced greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can walk away with a full mouth implant or temporary 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 tooth implants are used for patients with several missing teeth lacking, which can cause significant issues such as not having the ability to chew up food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Swapping these with implants can remove any nervousness around a moving denture. We are regularly 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 a single tooth is lacking, an implant is usually the best answer. Implants are usually better and longer lasting that other available choices, and do not have issues live moving around or impacting on speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone surrounding the implant becomes backed by the implant, preventing further resorption and teeth on each side don"t have any additional force that may 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 will fit like a natural tooth, and do not lead to bone breakdown, impact 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 even with proper care will need to be changed at least every 10 years. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some modifications over the years.
Forget about anxiety: With your new implants you no longer require to worry about feeling down if you want to laugh, or that you"ll 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 change how your laugh looks. Implants help maintain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The areas left by lacking teeth can result in further issues, including harm to your jawbone. If it does not have the support of any teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its strength. 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 maintain your mouth health the way you are used to. You can clean, floss and clean your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slip or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and could affect the way you speak as well as your ability to pronounce words. As the implant directly replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.
Eat without concern: Implants are naturally strong and durable, allowing you to eat your preferred foods without stress and anxiety!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, meaning 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 to the correct put in place in your mouth. As your new implant is set, you will be confident about your tooth not moving when you are about your day.
A reliable solution: Implants are thought to be one of the very most reliable and predictable alternatives when changing missing teeth.
