Do you have a missing tooth and wish to smile and eat with more confidence?
Dental Implants are a modern, popular method to replace lost teeth. We can place a titanium implant securely into the bone in place of the tooth root. We may then attach a crown, denture or bridge onto the top.
Traditional methods for replacing teeth include dentures and bridgework. Both of these however have their own drawbacks. Dentures have the potential to be loose and as a result may cause embarrassment. Bridgework can be destructive to adjacent teeth and as a result make them weaker. Replacing missing teeth with implants will provide a fixed solution which preserves surrounding bone.
What does dental Implant treatment involve?
We place dental implants under a local anaesthetic. The whole procedure takes a reasonably short amount of time. It is necessary to wait several weeks for integration into the bone. Finally a crown, bridge or denture can be placed over the top.
We place implants which are made of titanium or a titanium-zirconium alloy. Both of these are bio compatible and as a result bond well with bone.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants have a success rate of in excess of 95% over a ten year period. Good oral hygiene and refraining from smoking for instance will increase the longevity.
Who makes the dental implants?
Here at Ainsty Dental Practice we use the Straumann Group® which include Straumann and Neodent implants both popular and clinically proven choices. Straumann is a Swiss company who have been making Implants since 1974 and are one of the largest companies providing implants worldwide.
Dental Implant Case Examples
A patient was unhappy with wearing a denture and wished to have a fixed solution. Two implants were placed to create a secure and aesthetic solution providing more confidence when eating and smiling.
This patient has lost their lateral incisor and does not like wearing a denture, therefore an implant was chosen.
The loss of a tooth resulted in a partial denture which was subsequently replaced with an Implant allowing the patient to eat and smile with more confidence.
