Dental Implants in Stratford
Types of implant:
This technique has completely altered our ability to improve a full mouth of teeth, and we now have the ability to install fixed teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a huge 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 speed of the procedure has also decreased greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can leave with a complete mouth implant or short-term bridge on the same day. The non-permanent bridge is then substituted with a permanent one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are used for patients with several missing teeth absent, 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. Exchanging these with implants can remove any anxiety around a moving denture. We are regularly able 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 usually the best answer. Implants are usually stronger and more durable that other choices, and do not have issues live slipping or influencing speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone round the implant becomes supported 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 exactly are the benefits 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 malfunction, influence 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 substituted at least every decade. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some adjustments over the years.
Forget about anxiety: Together with your new implants you no longer need to get worried about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, absent teeth can impact your face, and can affect how your smile looks. Dental implants help to preserve your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The gaps left by absent teeth can lead to further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not have the support of a teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its durability. Implants help to encourage bone development and protects your jaw from deterioration.
Take care of you teeth the natural way: 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 clean, floss and rinse your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slip or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and may affect the way you speak as well as your ability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without being anxious: Dental implants are naturally strong and durable, allowing you to eat your favourite 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 to the right place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you can be self-confident about your teeth not moving when you are about your entire day.
A reliable solution: Dental implants are thought to be one of the very most reliable and predictable alternatives when replacing missing teeth.
