At Al-Fa Perio, we take great care in providing dependable dental treatments to improve the oral health of your mouth. We carry out our dental implant treatments at our London clinic because they’re an ideal solution for replacing a missing tooth.
It is vital that in order to prevent the negative effects of tooth loss, missing teeth should be replaced as soon as possible. Dental implants provide a great treatment option to minimising most of these negative effects due to their many advantages over other treatments. Losing teeth?
Long Term Treatment Solution
Due to the constant innovation within implant technology, this treatment now provides sound long term solutions to a varying degree of situations.
Dental implants have a proven track record and much clinical research eluding to their success. Hence, this surgical treatment is not carried out with replacement in mind.
It is also, important to note that much thought goes into the treatment planning and selection of the most appropriate implant system for any particular situation.
There are now numerous implant brands, systems, technologies and techniques. They all differ in their applicability.
We are now able to cater for varying degrees of bone quality, bone heights and width and variable situations including immediate replacement of the extracted teeth. The key to longevity is choosing the most compatible implant system with proven success in any given situation.
Dental Implants provide a Conservative Fixed Solution
In the past, when patients had missing teeth, in some cases, the most viable option of choice used to be dentures that were removable. This was especially true when we did not want to treat the neighbouring teeth with a dental bridge.
However, nowadays it has become the norm to have a fixed solution such as dental implants to replace missing teeth without the need of compromising any other teeth.
This means that dental implants are also providing the most conservative treatment solution without additional preparation of other teeth. How do dental implants work?
This surgical treatment with implants has done away with the constantly uncomfortable and loose dentures. Also, the patient no longer has to take the new teeth out to clean or keep the gums healthy.
This fixed option of dental implants allows the patient to eat, chew and speak with greater comfort.
Inhibits Bone Loss
Many implants systems have now come up with innovative surface designs that encourage osseointegration of the bone. This restores the functional ability of the bone and prevents any subsequent loss of bone in the future. Contact us today for more information.
Since dental implants are very similar to natural teeth with part of their component embedded in the bone just like the roots of natural teeth, this treatment tends to build on confidence.
People do not psychologically feel like they are missing part of themselves and so dental implants maintain ongoing self-esteem.
Also, aesthetically patients do not have to go without their front teeth. Losing front teeth and seeing this on a daily basis can be very traumatic to many patients. Thankfully, dental implants now restore confidence immediately if a tooth were to be taken out.
Maintains Stable Bite
Since a lost tooth is replaced immediately or very soon after, the patients chewing ability is maintained and not affected significantly.
When teeth are not replaced immediately or soon after the extraction, there can be numerous cascading events that lead to detrimental effects on the teeth, gums and bone.
Also, the longer the situation is left without restoration of the missing teeth the more complex and difficult treatment becomes in the future.
