When planning treatment for the replacement of missing teeth, there are many factors that we need to consider. They all play a part in which treatment options we choose and how we design the definitive Treatment Plan.
Al-Fa Perio offers leading dental implant treatments from our London dental clinic. We take great care and pride in planning the ideal dental implant treatment for you. We take a number of factors into consideration to make sure we can achieve long-lasting results. The advantages of dental implants.
Factors affecting the final Treatment Plan:
- The number of teeth being replaced.
We need to consider how these artificial teeth will be used and supported. If a single tooth is missing, then we can use a single dental implant. However, if more teeth are missing, we may want to consider a fixed option like a bridge or a removable option like an implant supported denture.
The choice is dependent upon where in the mouth these teeth are missing and the condition of the neighbouring teeth.
- Aims of the treatment.
We will look at the treatment objectives whether they are purely aesthetic or is function also a priority. A cosmetic treatment plan may require more teeth involved such as when doing smile makeovers to make sure that all the teeth fit together in the new smile.
Also, when considering the chewing ability of the dentition we may need to involve other molar teeth to balance the final bite correctly.
- Choice of implant system.
This will be dependent upon the quality of bone, quantity of remaining bone in both height and width and the type of restoration we will be using that the implant will be supporting. There is now a wide range of implant designs that cater to a very wide range of circumstances. How do dental implants work?
We need to consider if immediate loading is required or greater primary stability. Our choice of an implant will be governed by the unique set of circumstances in each case.
- Final gum aesthetics.
If this is an important consideration when we may need to evaluate for the additional treatment of gum grafting procedures. Alternatively, we may decide to choose an implant design that encourages gum growth in the region near the neck of the tooth. Leading laser gum treatments.
We can now cosmetically establish a great realistic emergence profile of the implant tooth making the implant tooth look like a real tooth.
- Cosmetic requirements.
There is now a wide palette of porcelain colours that can be used to make a tooth look very realistic. We can play with translucency, opacity, surface texture, type of porcelain and a wide range of the colour “white”, to design a compatible tooth shade.
When creating new smile makeovers, we use the same consistent shade patterns to give the look of natural teeth that suit your face and facial profile. Cosmetic dentistry is a part of implant dentistry.
- Medical Contra-Indications.
In order to prevent complications during or after treatment, we assess your medical situation thoroughly. In most instances as long as your medical condition is properly stabilised there should be no reason why you can’t have the implant surgery.
- Interim treatment during the integration period.
Here we will plan whether we require Immediate loading from the implant or whether we plan to create a temporary restoration whilst we are waiting for the period of osseointegration.
This is an important consideration for many. We specialise in customising your Treatment Plan to suit your individual needs and so will only select those implant systems that are the most suited and compatible for you.
We want your treatment to be long lasting, comfortable and cost-effective. We also offer financing plans to facilitate your affordability.
Each case we treat is different and so you will be having a very detailed consultation and examination prior to Treatment planning so that we can determine your exact goals and priorities for the dental treatment.
