Seeking to replace a tooth as soon as possible after it’s lost is greatly in the interests of your long-term oral health, and will successfully restore your ability to perform functions like eating, speaking and smiling. Dental implants are known for being one of the options for replacing a tooth and as they’re a fixed solution, they protect your jawbone from shrinking away due to lack of stimulation. Dental implants truly are one of most innovative treatments in restorative dentistry.
The way in which dental implants work to replace missing teeth is quite extraordinary. Implants are small titanium posts, which are surgically placed and encourage the jawbone to grow around them. Thanks to this integrational process, the jawbone believes it’s receiving a new tooth root, and can therefore remain free from the risk of shrinking away, which is a common problem after many years of tooth loss.
Once the implant has healed after surgery (usually around 3-6 months), a crown, bridge or denture is fitted. All our laboratory-made restorations are bespoke, authentic-looking and designed to feel as much like a real tooth as possible.
Even a single missing tooth can wreak havoc with your oral health and chewing ability, especially if the tooth you have lost is a larger tooth like a molar. During your consultation, we will assess your suitability for single implants by checking if you have enough healthy bone to support one. If this is not the case, we may recommend a bone graft, or an alternative restorative solution. Either way, we will ensure you receive the highest quality of restorative care.
Using as few as 4 implants, All-on-4 is a popular treatment for those who have lost multiple teeth or indeed, all of their teeth. By carefully placing a small number of implants at specific angles, treatment reduces the need for bone grafting surgery to increase bone volume, and allows you to go home with prototype teeth on the same day as treatment. Your dentist here at Rosewood Dental Clinic will help you select your preferred teeth, depending on a variety of factors like ease of cleaning and removability, as well as durability.
The combination of dentures and implants has become a popular option for patients looking to replace loose-fitting conventional dentures. Implant-retained dentures are custom made and secured in your mouth using very few implants, as is the case with All-on-4 treatment. Long-term denture wearers will be all too aware of how ill-fitting dentures make eating and speaking a daily struggle. With your dentures clicked into place, you can forget about the risk of them slipping, and easily remove them when you need to clean them.
Versatile treatment: implants can be used in a number of ways, from restoring a single tooth with a bespoke crown, to securing a bridge and custom dentures in place.
Enjoy eating and tasting again: dental implants allow you to break down foods with ease, which may have been a challenge when you were living with missing teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, implant-retained dentures don’t cover your palate – you’ll find your ability to taste foods is enhanced.
Feel confident with your smile: in replacing missing teeth, many patients find their confidence and self-esteem grows significantly, especially in social situations and the workplace.
Protect your smile: dental implants protect vacant areas of gum tissue from irritation.
