Dental Implants in Tower Hamlets
Types of implant:
This technique has completely evolved our ability to change 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 time of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the procedure, and start with a scan to review the patient and find the best area to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the task has also decreased greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can walk away with a complete mouth implant or short-term bridge on the same day. The short-term bridge is then changed with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Teeth Implants
Multiple tooth implants are used for patients with several absent teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not having the ability to chew up food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Exchanging these with implants can remove any anxiety around a moving denture. We are often able to implant a bridge attached to the implants if the missing teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Teeth Implants
When one tooth is missing, an implant is often the best solution. Implants are usually better and longer lasting that other choices, and don"t have issues live moving around or impacting on speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone around the implant becomes reinforced by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side do not 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 alternatives, a dental implant feels and fits just like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone break down, 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 decade. Dental implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some modifications over time.
Forget about anxiety: With your new implants you no longer need to be anxious about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, missing teeth can impact your face, and can affect how your smile looks. Implants help to preserve your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The gaps left by missing teeth can lead to further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not have the support of your teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its durability. Implants help to 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 how you are used to. You can clean, floss and wash your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slide or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and may affect how you speak and 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, letting you eat your favourite foods without stress and anxiety!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, meaning as long as you clean it and get regular checkups you won"t have any problems.
No slipping: when you speak or eat, you might find that dentures move, and have to be moved back to the correct place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you can be assured about your teeth not moving when you are about your day.
A trusted solution: Implants are regarded as one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when fixing a missing tooth.
