Dental implants are the ideal long-term treatment solution, as they:
Replace missing teeth
Are a predictable treatment outcome for terminal teeth
Offer full-mouth rehabilitation where there are no teeth or for full terminal dentition
Keep teeth on either side of a missing tooth healthy without having to take tooth structure away (like you would with a bridge)
Have a positive impact on the bone (unlike dentures, which negatively impact bone)
There are two main types of dental implants. Your dentist will carry out a full oral examination to decide which type is most suitable for you.
Subperiosteal dental implants are placed on top of your jaw with the help of a metal framework protruding through your gums. This framework holds your artificial tooth in place.
Subperiosteal dental implants could be a suitable option if you have minimal jawbone height. Once your gums are healed completely, your implant will become as secure and long-lasting as an endosteal implant.
Depending on your dental health needs, you can have your dental implant procedure under local or general anaesthesia. The process involves three phases:
Finally, we attach a customised crown to the implant post.
If you have lost just one tooth, this procedure could be the most suitable one for you.
If you have several missing teeth that need replacement, implant-supported bridges may be the appropriate treatment option.
This procedure involves the removal of all teeth (on one or both jaws), or can be used if you do not have any teeth. It is done in one day and 24 hours later a full set of teeth is issued.
Your initial teeth for All On 4 prosthesis are permanent – their support structure is milled from titanium and then acrylic teeth are placed over this. After about 6 months you can ‘upgrade’ to porcelain teeth.
If you take good care of them and follow proper oral hygiene, dental implants can last between 25 and 30 years. Once the procedure is completed, however, you need to take care of implants just like your normal teeth to ensure that the gum tissue and bone remain in good health.
The following factors can impact how long your dental implants will last:
While dental implants are an effective solution to restore missing teeth and give you back your confidence in your smile, there are possible disadvantages of this type of treatment.
When they are taken care of properly, your dental implants can almost last a lifetime. Although implants can’t decay or develop cavities, it’s important to maintain your surrounding teeth to prevent inflammation and disease:
Use a soft and angled toothbrush for brushing to effectively clean implant abutments
Gently brush and floss, especially where the implant meets your gum line
Use a low-abrasive toothpaste daily to prevent tartar from developing
Avoid eating chewy food, sticky food and hard nuts
Visit your dentist every 6 months to make sure both your natural teeth and implants are in good condition
Use oral irrigators to reduce plaque around implants and prevent gingivitis
Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol in the first six months of getting a dental implant
