Dental Implants in Wandle Park
Types of implant:
This method has totally transformed 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 great benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress in comparison to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the procedure, starting 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 hardly any or no teeth can leave with a complete mouth implant or temporary bridge on the same day. The non-permanent bridge is then changed with a permanent one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Teeth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are being used for patients with several missing teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not having the ability to chew food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Updating these with implants can remove any stress around a moving denture. We are regularly in a position to implant a bridge mounted on 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 usually the best answer. Implants are usually more robust and more durable that other available choices, and don"t have issues live slipping or impacting on speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone around the implant becomes reinforced by the implant, preventing further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional loading that may cause issues in the future.
What exactly are the advantages of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other solutions, a dental implant feels and fits like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone break down, have an impact on smiling or hinder other activities that other solutions do.
A long-term fix: More traditional options such as tooth-supported bridges generally last 5-7 years, and despite having 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 when you smile, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live your life without stress 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 retain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The spaces left by missing teeth can lead to further issues, including damage to your jawbone. If it does not possess the support of an teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its strength. Implants helps encourage bone growth and protects your jaw from deterioration.
Take care of you teeth the natural way: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a cup, having an implant installed you can sustain your mouth health the way you are being used to. You can brush, floss and wash 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 teeth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without worry: Implants are naturally strong and durable, letting you eat your preferred foods without panic!
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 right place in your mouth. As your new implant is fixed, you will be self-confident about your tooth not moving when you go about your day.
A trusted solution: Implants are thought to be one of the very most reliable and predictable solutions when changing a missing tooth.
