Dental Implants in Bromley
Types of implant:
Full Mouth Implants
This technique has completely improved 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 a huge benefit to patients, and significantly reduces the length of the procedure, and minimises pain and stress compared to traditional methods.
We start by planning out the procedure, and start with a scan to review the patient and discover the best area to install 4 dental implants. The time of the task has also improved greatly, and patients with hardly any or no teeth can walk away with a full mouth implant or temporary bridge on the same day. The short-term bridge is then replaced with a long term one after 3-4 months.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple teeth implants are used for patients with several missing teeth missing, which can cause significant issues such as not having the ability to chew food properly. This may cause real stress in day-today life. Updating these with implants can remove any anxiousness around a moving denture. We are regularly able to implant a bridge to the implants if the missing teeth are around the same area, as the image below demonstrates.
Single Tooth Implants
When a single tooth is missing, an implant is usually the best solution. Implants are usually stronger and more durable that other options, and don"t have issues live moving or impacting speech like dentures often have. Additionally, the bone around the implant becomes backed by the implant, stopping further resorption and teeth on each side do not have any additional force that may cause issues in the future.
What exactly are the advantages of dental implants?
The closest thing to natural, healthy teeth: unlike other alternatives, a dental implant feels and will fit like a natural tooth, and don"t lead to bone breakdown, influence smiling or hinder other activities that other alternatives do.
A long-term fix: More traditional options such as tooth-supported bridges generally last 5-7 years, and despite having proper care will need to be replaced at least every decade. Dental implants on the other hand can last your whole life, with only some adjustments over time.
No more anxiety: With your new dental implant you no longer need to stress about feeling down when you laugh, or that you"ll have issues eating with your dentures. Live life without anxiousness around your teeth.
Keep your face shape and laugh: Unfortunately, missing teeth can impact your face, and change how your laugh looks. Implants help sustain your natural, beautiful face and smile.
Take care of your jaw: The spaces left by missing teeth can lead to further issues, including your jawbone. If it does not possess the support of a teeth, the bone may become damaged and loses its strength. Implants help to encourage bone development and protects your jaw from deterioration.
Take care of you teeth by natural means: Instead of having to keep your teeth in a cup, by having an implant installed you can maintain your mouth health the way you are used to. You may brush, floss and clean your teeth and not worry that your dentures may slide or fall out.
No problems speaking: dentures may take some getting used to, and may affect the way you speak and your ability to pronounce words. As the implant immediately replaces your teeth, this is something you don"t need to worry about.
Eat without concern: Implants are naturally strong and durable, allowing you to eat your preferred foods without stress!
No cavities: An implant cannot get cavities, meaning so long as you clean it and get regular checkups you shouldn"t have any problems.
No slipping: when you speak or eat, you may find that dentures move, and have to be moved back to the correct put in place in your mouth. As your new implant is set, you will be assured about your tooth not moving when you go about your day.
A trusted solution: Implants are thought to be one of the most reliable and predictable alternatives when changing a missing tooth.
