Incredible Info on Implant Retained Dentures

Dental implants are a modern dental phenomenon and we are incredibly proud to offer implant treatment and implant-retained dentures right here in Bristol. If you’re not up to scratch with implant info, here is a guide to the ins and outs of implant-retained dentures:

What are dental implants and when are they used?

Dental implants are a modern solution for patients with missing teeth and can be used as an alternative to dental bridges and dentures. Implants are made from titanium, which is a biocompatible material. This means that once the implant is placed inside a socket in the jaw bone, it can integrate into the actual bone tissue. Integration facilitates enhanced stability, which means that the new tooth offers the same level of strength and functionality as a healthy natural tooth. Dental implants are suited to most people with missing teeth, as they are compatible with various different restorations including bridges, dentures and single crowns.

Everything you need to know about implant-retained dentures

Implant-retained dentures are secured by dental implants. With this treatment, you can enjoy all the benefits of implants and dentures combined. Sometimes, people have issues with dentures, such as a poor fit, irritation and limited ability to enjoy a wide range of foods. With implant-retained dentures, none of these issues are a concern and you can enjoy peace of mind that your denture is completely stable. Implant-retained dentures may be advisable for patients who have experienced problems with traditional dentures in the past or those who have a large number of missing teeth. Implants are built to last for many years and provide the closest match to natural teeth. If you’d like to find out more, simply call reception or pop in and book an appointment.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants are a modern solution for tooth loss and offer all kinds of benefits and provide a long-term alternative to traditional dentures. Implants are versatile, highly functional and aesthetically pleasing and have a positive effect on the confidence and oral health and look of the smile.

What exactly are dental implants and how do they work?

Dental implants are small titanium posts screwed into sockets in the jaw bone in order to replace a missing tooth root. Implants are made from titanium, which is a biocompatible material, meaning the implant is able to integrate into the bone tissue. The integration process facilitates the same level of anchorage as a natural tooth root and once the implant has settled, it can be attached to a new restoration, such as bridge or crown. The aim of the implant is to replace the missing root and provide support and stability for the visible part of the tooth, which is replaced by a crown, bridge or denture.

The benefits of dental implant treatment

Implant treatments offers multiple benefits, including:
  • Natural looking aesthetics
  • Long-lasting results
  • Improved functionality
  • Reduced bone loss
  • Greater confidence
  • Easy care and maintenance
Once you have implants, you can enjoy all the benefits of a healthy natural smile. If you would like to find out more about how this innovative treatment could benefit you, call us today and book an appointment.

The Advantages of Implant Retained Dentures

Dental implants are one of the most exciting developments in modern dentistry and now denture patients can enjoy the benefits of both denture and implant treatment thanks to amazing implant-retained dentures. Traditionally, dentures are held in place by the gums that assert natural suction power. However, with implant-retained dentures, the denture is secured by dental implants.

What are the advantages of implant-retained dentures?

Implant-retained dentures offer solutions for many of the common complaints raised by denture-wearers, such as slipping, ill-fitting dentures, irritation and a lack of confidence when eating. With dental implants in place to secure the denture, there is absolutely no risk of the denture sliding, so you can have complete peace of mind when you speak, smile or eat and you can enjoy enhanced functionality. Dental implants are inserted into sockets in the jaw bone. They are designed to act as a substitute for the natural tooth root and they provide the same level of stability as a healthy root. Implant-retained dentures also make it possible for patients who cannot tolerate traditional dentures for reasons such as bone loss, lack of bone definition or a sensitive gag reflex, to wear dentures. In cases where traditional implants are not suitable, for example if you have bone loss or your jawbone is slightly weak and lacks density, mini implants may be recommended to support the denture. Mini implants are smaller versions of traditional implants are they are easier to tolerate. They don’t last as long, but the procedure is less invasive and the results are amazing. If you’ve had trouble with dentures in the past or you are looking for an effective, long-term solution for tooth loss and you like the sound of implant-retained dentures, our dentists will be happy to tell you more. Call now and arrange a consultation to find out if this treatment is the perfect match for you.

Replacing missing teeth

There are countless benefits of replacing missing teeth and we encourage our patients with missing teeth to consider replacement options. Today, there are some really amazing prostheses on offer and with replacement teeth, you can enjoy enhanced aesthetics, better oral health, clear speech and the ability to eat properly.

Our treatments

Our treatment list boasts: Dental implants and All-on-4: dental implants are a long-term option suitable for patents with one or more missing teeth. Implants replace the tooth root and they are secured into the jaw bone tissue. They are then connected to a bridge, denture or crown. As well as traditional implants, we are delighted to offer All-on-4, a same-day implant treatment that uses four implants to anchor a full arch of new teeth. Dentures and implant-retained dentures: dentures are sets of false teeth designed to look like natural teeth. They are secured by the suction power of the gums and the treatment process is quick and simple. Dentures are an affordable option for patients with several missing teeth or a full arch of lost teeth. We also offer implant-retained dentures, which offer the benefits of dentures and dental implants. These dentures enjoy enhanced security for increased bite power, natural aesthetics and peace of mind. Dental bridges: bridges are a very popular option for patients who have a single missing tooth. The traditional fixed bridge, the most common type of bridge, is made from a false tooth with crown on each side for support. Many people choose to have a ceramic bridge that blends in with the natural teeth for a seamless aesthetic. Bridge treatment can be completed within 2-3 weeks and a bridge should last up to 15 years.

Delightful Dental Implants!

Dental implants are among the most exciting innovations in modern dentistry and they can literally change your life. It may sound dramatic to make this statement, but implants really can have a massive difference on the way you look and feel, as well as your ability to carry out essential functions, such as chewing and grinding food.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a modern solution for tooth loss. The idea is that the implant, which is made from titanium and resembles a small screw, replaces the root of the missing tooth. Once the implant has been placed inside a socket in the jaw bone, it will then start to integrate into the bone tissue, ensuring optimum support for the new tooth. Once the integration process is complete, the restoration is attached and this serves to replace the visible part of the tooth. Implants are a long-term solution for tooth loss and they are also incredibly versatile, which makes them an excellent choice for patients of all ages with diverse dental needs. Implants are compatible with bridges, dentures and crowns, so they can be used in the place of one single tooth or multiple missing teeth.

How long does treatment take?

Implant treatment usually takes between 3 and 9 months. However, we do offer rapid treatment solutions, including All-on-4. When you have your consultation, your dentist can discuss different options with you.

What are the alternatives to implant treatment?

Other options for tooth replacement treatment include dentures and dental bridges. Bridges tend to last up to 15 years, while dentures need adjusting on a regular basis to fit the changing contours of the mouth. Dental implants are the closest match to natural teeth and they last a lot longer. However, they are more expensive.

Everything You Need to Know About Dental Implants in Bath

If you’re thinking about dental implant treatment or you’re looking for a solution for missing teeth in and around Bath, here’s everything you need to know about our innovative implant treatments:

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small, screw-shaped devices, which are made from titanium. They are used to act as a substitute for a missing tooth root. Implants are placed inside small holes in the jaw bone and secured. They then integrate into the actual jaw bone tissue and this enables them to support a new tooth in the same way as a natural tooth root. Implants are compatible with single crowns, dentures or dental bridges, which means they are suited to patients of all ages with various dental needs. With implants, we are able to offer a solution for patients with a single missing tooth, several gaps or a full arch of lost teeth. As well as providing amazing levels of stability, implants also offer incredibly natural aesthetics, durability and enhance comfort. They are easy to maintain and they also help to reduce the risk of bone loss. You will also be able to enjoy clear speech, enhanced facial aesthetics and increased power when you chew and bite food.

How long does treatment take?

Implant treatment takes times because the implants integrate into the jawbone tissue. This process, called osseointegration, can take up to 8 months. Although treatment is not a quick-fix, it does last a lifetime and therefore the results are well worth the wait! For patients who are desperate for an instant solution for tooth loss, we can recommend All-on-4, a same day implant system, which is a great option for patients who have found dentures troublesome in the past. With this treatment, we are able to fit the implants and the new teeth on the same day.
