Dental Implants in Waddon
Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This technique has completely improved our ability to improve a full mouth of teeth, and we now have the ability to install set teeth the same day that the implants are placed. This is a great 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 examine the patient and discover the best location to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the task has also decreased greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can leave with a complete mouth implant or short-term bridge in a single day. The temporary bridge is then changed with a permanent one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Teeth 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 food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Changing these with implants can remove any stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are often able to implant a bridge to the implants if the absent teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Teeth Implants
When only one tooth is absent, an implant is often the best solution. Implants are usually better and longer lasting that other choices, and don"t have issues live slipping or influencing speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone surrounding the implant becomes supported by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force that may 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 just like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone break down, affect 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 ten years. implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some changes over time.
No more anxiety: With your new implants you no longer require to be concerned about feeling down if you want to smile, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without stress and anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, absent teeth can impact your face, and change how your smile looks. Dental implants help to preserve your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Look after your jaw: The gaps left by absent teeth can lead to further issues, including harm to your jawbone. If it does not hold the support of your teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its durability. Implants help to encourage bone development and helps to protect 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 maintain your mouth health how you are used to. You can brush, floss and clean your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slip or fallout.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and could 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 need to worry about.
Eat without worry: Dental implants are built to be 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 speak or eat, you might find that dentures move, and have to be moved back to the correct place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you will be self-assured about your teeth not moving when you are about your entire day.
A reliable solution: Dental implants are regarded as one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when fixing missing teeth.
