Do You have Mising teeth? - Dental Implants could be the solution giving you the same natural look as your own teeth
Dental Implants – A Long Lasting Solution to Missing Teeth
Dental Implants are now the treatment of choice to replace missing teeth. They look and perform like natural teeth. More importantly, the use of dental implants does not impact healthy neighbouring teeth.
Restoring the beauty of your smile is easily achieved by replacing stained, missing or chipped teeth.and, unlike dentures, don’t move and can last a lifetime. Placing a dental implant into your jaw provides a support for your long-lasting replacement teeth.
What Are Dental implants?
Dental implants look and perform more like natural teeth. They are anchored in the jaw, just like teeth and can give solutions that remove the need for artificial plastic on the roof of the mouth. More importantly, the use of dental implants does not impact healthy adjacent teeth and also solves the problem of bone loss that comes with missing teeth. They really are the closest thing possible to natural teeth.
Consultation and treatment planning are the first steps when considering implants. A full mouth assessment is completed with x-rays taken and a CT scan will be booked to aid in planning the size of implant to be used.
Several appointments will be booked depending on the treatment plan from start to finish for placing the implant.
The Integration Period
There is a waiting period of about 3 and 5 months for the implant and the bone to knit together. This is called the Integration period. During this time any gap that you have in your mouth will have a temporary bridge or a denture to fill the space if required.
Dental implant aftercare is extremely important. You will need to brush and floss your new teeth just as you do your natural teeth. We advise you see your hygienist every 4 to 6 months and they will demonstrate appropriate cleaning techniques. Looking after a dental implant is easy and our hygienist will have a guide to dental implant aftercare to help you.
