Dental Implants in Woodside
Types of implant:
This technique has totally evolved our ability to change a full mouth of teeth, and we now able to install set 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 in comparison to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the operation, starting with a scan to examine the patient and discover the best location to install 4 dental implants. The speed of the operation has also advanced greatly, and patients with hardly any 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 substituted with a permanent one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple tooth implants are being used for patients with several absent teeth lacking, which can cause significant issues such as not being able to chew up food properly. This can cause real stress in day-today life. Updating these with implants can remove any stress and anxiety around a moving denture. We are often able to implant a bridge attached to the implants if the lacking teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Tooth Implants
When a single tooth is lacking, an implant is usually the best answer. Implants are usually better and longer lasting that other options, and do not have issues live moving or impacting on speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone about the implant becomes supported by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side don"t have any additional loading that could 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 do not lead to bone breakdown, affect 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 substituted at least every ten years. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some changes over time.
No more anxiety: Together with your new implants you no longer need to stress about feeling down if you want to 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. Implants help keep your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The spaces left by lacking teeth can lead to further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not have the support of the teeth, the bone can become damaged and loses its durability. Implants helps encourage bone development and defends your jaw from deterioration.
Take care of you teeth the natural way: Rather than having to keep your teeth in a glass, by having an implant installed you can maintain your mouth health how you are being used to. You may 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 how you speak and your capacity to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your tooth, this is something you don"t have to worry about.
Eat without being anxious: Implants are naturally strong and durable, allowing you to eat your favourite foods without stress!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, which means that so long as you clean it and get regular checkups you shouldn"t have any problems.
No movement: when you speak or eat, you might find that dentures move, and have to be moved back in to the correct place in your mouth. As your implant is set, you can be self-confident about your tooth 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 replacing missing teeth.
