Dental Implants & Dentures
If you are missing teeth, our dentists may advocate replacing them with dental implants or dentures. Once we assess your teeth, our team will make a recommendation that is best suited to your needs.
What are Dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. Implants are used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or to support a denture or bridge.
What are the advantages of Dental implants?
It will help eliminate further bone loss in most circumstances. Typically, our bodies maintain the bone in the area around the tooth. If teeth are missing anywhere in the jaw, the bone will slowly disappear. When your dentist places an implant in your jaw bone, it stimulates the bone and your body will continue to maintain the bone in that area, as if your tooth was still there.
Will there be changes in my remaining healthy teeth?
Unlike dental bridges, your remaining natural teeth do not need to be prepared, or changed prior to or during this procedure. Your remaining teeth will not experience any changes.
Implants can be less liable to gum problems than natural teeth are. In cases where people have lost some or all of their teeth due to gum disease, implants can be used to replace the missing teeth. Because the delinquent tooth or teeth are removed, the environment in the area improves and you have a second chance at healthy gums. Proper home and professional cleaning regularly are still very important for long term health.
Implants are designed to blend with your mouth, creating a beautiful smile and an improvement in overall well being.
Implant Supported Dentures & Implant Retained Dentures
An implant supported denture is secured by dental implants and can be removable or fixed.
Removable dentures have 'clips' fitted into the denture itself, permitting you to take the denture on and off to steriliser the mechanism.
A fixed denture functions is similar to a permanent bridge or dental crowns, and is permanently attached to the dental implants or a bar that rests on top of the dental implants.
Our practice will work with you to yield the most suitable treatment plan for you. That will include home care instructions and follow up appointments so your dental implant(s) can last for many years to come.
