They provide fixed and permanent solutions in Dental Implants and are long-lasting with proper care, which is:
A dental implant is a small, titanium screw that is placed in the jawbone and replaces the root of the missing tooth. It acts as an anchor for a crown that is attached to the implant after a period of healing. Implants can also be used to secure replacement teeth in the form of dentures or bridges.
Nervous patients will be made to feel comfortable throughout with a local anaesthetic. Most patients report that the sensation is more tolerable than having a tooth removed.
An important benefit of replacing missing teeth with implants is the fact that the implant material integrates with the supporting bone. It preserves the bone beneath the teeth and prevents it from degeneration.
All on Four or All on Six – sometimes known as Same-Day Teeth – have become a popular alternative to dentures. Four or Six implants are used to hold a replacement set of teeth in place in a single visit.
Once in place, you will need to make sure you care for and protect the implants as you would with natural teeth using good oral hygiene techniques and a routine of daily brushing and flossing.
It is a suitable treatment for those who are currently wearing dentures in one or both jaws but, who would like a more permanent, fixed solution and who may have experienced ill-fitting dentures or were not able to tolerate them.
Initial consultation and assessment will establish if it is a suitable treatment and X-rays and scans may be taken. A set of replacement teeth will be designed to suit your preference. Once the implants have been placed, a temporary set of teeth are fitted immediately.
When healing is complete, a permanent set of teeth are attached to the implants creating a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
Traditional dentures are not always suitable for everyone and there can be a variety of issues from comfort to difficulty eating certain foods. Implant retained dentures use a series of two to four titanium posts inserted into the jawbone that a custom-made denture is then attached to once healing is complete.
The implant-supported denture is removable for cleaning and the implants must also be cleaned. Some of the benefits, besides a beautiful, natural-looking smile, are being able to eat the foods you enjoy, added stability and the implants prevent the further bone loss that takes place when teeth are lost.
Sometimes there are issues relating to bone density and a bone graft might be needed. There can also be some medical issues that might make you an unsuitable candidate. Patients who are heavy smokers might also be considered unsuitable.
