Do you feel confident with your smile? Do you have missing teeth? Do you struggle to eat properly, suffering from a poor bite or chewing motion? If yes, then dental implants might just be the answer to your dental problems.
Dental Implants are an advanced dental technique where a specially developed titanium screw is inserted into the jaw bone to give a suitable foundation onto which a crown or bridge can fixed. Dental Implants are regarded as the treatment of choice when you lose a tooth or have lost many teeth. They have great strength and the final look of the tooth or teeth is very natural and they can be expected to last many years.
An implant doesn’t come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
We are able to offer you full care for your dental implants from initial consultation, to placement of the dental implant or implants, which will restore your smile. We will then help you in long term care for your dental implants.
Dental Implants – an alternative to dentures
Dental Implants can also be a great solution for people who have full dentures that they feel are loose. The denture clips into place onto the titanium posts and means that the denture is stable and does not move. This also has the added advantage that the denture can cover much less of your mouth as it is securely clipped into place on the titanium posts.
Considering Dental Implants?
If you are considering dental implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. If your gums are not felt healthy enough your dentist and hygienist can help you to achieve healthy gums to help support the implant. If your bone is too thin or soft and unable to support an implant, you may require a bone graft, which is generally a straight forward procedure to have done. All this can be determined during your consultation for dental implants with the aid of x-rays and often with the aid of a cone beam CT scan which shows a 3D image of your jaws.
If you decide to have dental implants it is essential that you are committed to keeping the implants, natural surround teeth and gums healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants. It is generally advised, after dental implants are placed, that you visit the dental hygienist at least every 6 months.
