Dental Implants in Upper Shirley
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 an enormous advantage to patients, and significantly reduces the time of the operation, and minimises pain and stress compared to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the operation, and start with a scan to examine the patient and find the best place to install 4 dental implants. The time of the procedure has also improved greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can walk away with a full mouth implant or non permanent bridge in a single day. The non-permanent bridge is then replaced with a permanent one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are being used for patients with several missing teeth absent, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Swapping these with implants can remove any anxiety around a moving denture. We are often in a position to implant a bridge 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 solution. Implants are usually more robust and more durable that other choices, and don"t have issues live moving or influencing speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone around the implant becomes reinforced by the implant, protecting against further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force that may 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 fits just like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone malfunction, have an effect on 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 despite having proper care should be replaced at least every 10 years. implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some adjustments over the years.
Forget about anxiety: Together with your new implants you no longer need to fret about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, absent teeth can impact your face, and change how your smile looks. Implants help keep your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The places left by absent teeth can result in further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not have the support of an teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its strength. Implants help to encourage bone growth and defends your jaw from deterioration.
Look after you teeth the natural way: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a cup, by having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health how you are being used to. You may clean, floss and rinse your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slip or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and may affect how you speak as well as your capacity to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without getting worried: Implants are naturally 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 slipping: when you talk or eat, you may find that dentures move, and need to be moved back in to the correct put in place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you can be comfortable about your teeth not moving when you are about your entire day.
A trusted solution: Implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when fixing missing teeth.
