Dental Implants are an ideal solution when there is only one tooth missing in the mouth. This treatment is increasingly becoming the most popular solution as people are now understanding the impact of missing teeth on not only the dentition but also on the facial appearance and general health. Hence, treatment is sought more immediately.
At Al-Fa Perio, we’ll carefully carry out a consultation that focuses on assessing your mouth and oral health.
Usually, there is enough bone still remaining to securely place an implant in the area of a single missing or failing tooth. This is often the simplest form of dental implant treatments. How do dental implants work?
The artificial tooth (crown) is simply connected to the implant via a post screw once osseointegration has occurred. Aesthetically, you can get a very realistic replacement for your lost tooth.
The main advantage here of using a dental implant is that it does not need any of the neighbouring teeth for its support of the porcelain crown on top of it. Unlike other more traditional treatments such as a dental bridge. The advantages of dental implants.
One of the main benefits of an implant in this situation is that it prevents further loss of bone; in fact, the very presence of the implant stimulates and maintains the surrounding bone tissue. This means that the effects of missing teeth are minimised.
We carry out our dental implant treatments at our London clinic. This is an ideal treatment, especially for missing front teeth. However, its replacement is more challenging due to the required cosmetics.
When single teeth are missing at the front of the mouth, we need to make sure that aesthetically there is no discrepancy between the remaining natural teeth and the new artificial implant tooth.
This is very difficult to achieve when using materials that are not “tooth”. The aim is not to make a single tooth stand out in comparison to the rest of the smile.
Due to innovative advancements in the types, shades and colours of porcelains now available, we can do some amazing cosmetic enhancements.
In these type of instances, to help achieve the correct aesthetics, orientation, position and shape we often provide a provisional tooth. The new implant tooth will then be created based upon this trial look. Understand our dental implant procedure.
You may require additional procedures such as bone grafting beforehand or gingival grafting post-operatively. These procedures are minimised in areas where a single tooth is missing and more often used when considering multiple missing teeth treatments. How do we plan your treatment?
