Dental Implants

You could lose a tooth at anytime and this could be for a number of reasons.

For example it could be the result of a trauma to your mouth, such a sports injury or any other blow to the face, or as a result of decay, gum disease or simply old age.

Whatever the reason, missing teeth should be replaced both for aesthetic and functional reasons. The most common treatments for missing teeth are either a denture or a fixed bridge.

However, dental implants are now becoming a more popular treatment to replace missing teeth as they provide a longer-term solution, slow down bone loss and preserve nearby healthy tooth tissue. They are also more comfortable than conventional dentures as they are permanently fixed, so there is no chance of them moving slipping or causing pain, which are some of the major concerns for people who wear dentures.

There are now many solutions to replace uncomfortable, insecure or painful dentures. Snap on Dentures are a great solution to ensure stability and comfort, 2-5 implants are placed in the jaw, the Snap on Denture is stabilised by implants and components, the snap on denture gets its support from the implants that it snaps onto, unlike conventional dentures that rest on the gums.

For patients wearing a full denture, there are now solutions which can eliminate the need for a full denture. An implant treatment known as All-on-4 or Teeth in a day, is an amazing solution that is life changing. This process usually requires only 4 implants to be placed equally spaced into the jaw, these implants will then support a specialist bridge which will remain in place permantly.

For further information on any of these services please do not hesitate to contact Abi Dental or to book a FREE Consultiation.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial replacement for the root of your natural tooth and is anchored into your jaw-bone to support a crown or a bridge or to secure a denture firmly in place.

Implants are made from Titanium, a material that is well tolerated by bone and integrates easily with bone tissue.

What is involved?

Before we begin any treatment, it is really important that we assess the health of your teeth and gums to check for any signs of gum disease or decay, which must be treated first.

We will then put together an individual treatment plan for you which is based on an assessment of the bone quality within your jaw.

Treatment is usually carried out under local anaesthesia and sometimes IV sedation if it is going to be a long procedure or if you are particularly anxious.

The titanium implant is tightly fitted into a socket in the gum where it is then left to heal and integrate with the jawbone which can be anything from 6 weeks to 6 months. This allows new bone tissue to anchor itself onto the surface of the implant.

During this "healing period" you will be provided with a temporary bridge or continue to wear any dentures.

After the healing period, a small post is attached to the implant which also includes a temporary crown.

Four to six weeks after that, once the gum has been allowed to heal, the final permanent restoration can be fitted to the implant.
