Dental Implants in West Ham
Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This method has completely improved our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now able 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 compared to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the procedure, and start with a scan to examine the patient and find the best place to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the task has also improved greatly, and patients with very few or no teeth can leave with a full mouth implant or short-term bridge on the same day. The short-term bridge is then replaced with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Teeth Implants
Multiple tooth implants are used for patients with several absent teeth lacking, 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. Replacing these with implants can remove any stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are regularly in a position to implant a bridge attached to the implants if the lacking teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Teeth Implants
When one tooth is lacking, an implant is often the best solution. Implants are usually stronger and more durable that other choices, and don"t have issues live moving or affecting speech like dentures frequently have. Additionally, the bone about the implant becomes backed by the implant, avoiding further resorption and teeth on each side don"t have any additional force that may cause issues in the future.
What are the benefits 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 breakdown, 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 should be replaced at least every ten years. Dental implants on the other hand can last all of your life, with only some adjustments over time.
No more anxiety: Together with your new dental implant you no longer need to get worried about feeling down when you smile, or that you will have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without stress and anxiety around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and smile: Unfortunately, lacking teeth can impact your face, and change how your smile looks. Dental implants help to preserve your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The gaps left by lacking teeth can lead to further issues, including harm to your jawbone. If it does not possess the support of a teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its strength. Implants help to 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 used to. You are able to brush, floss and clean your teeth rather than worry that your dentures may slip or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures can take some getting used to, and may affect the way you speak as well as your capability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without worry: Dental implants are naturally strong and durable, letting you eat your favourite foods without nervousness!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, which means that as long as you clean it and get regular checkups you shouldn"t have any problems.
No movement: when you talk or eat, you might find that dentures move, and have to be moved back in to the correct put in 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 entire day.
A reliable solution: Dental implants are regarded as one of the most reliable and predictable solutions when fixing a missing tooth.
