In the past, removable dentures and bridges were the usual options for replacing lost teeth. Both, however, can potentially damage neighbouring teeth and offer only a temporary solution.
Today, clients have an option to choose dental implants, a reliable long-term fixed solution for missing teeth. Thanks to modern dental techniques, it is now often possible to remove a hopeless tooth and replace it with an implant in just one surgical procedure.
It is very common for people to have more than one tooth missing or even a span of teeth missing. It is no longer necessary to fill these gaps with dentures or to cut down neighbouring teeth for bridges. The team at the QVC Dental will restore what has been lost and your next set of teeth can come courtesy of implant dentistry.
The number of implants necessary depends on the number of missing teeth and the quality of your bone. Rest assured that your individual case will be assessed with the latest implant technology and techniques in mind.
Here at the QVC Dental, we possess the necessary skills set to accommodate for all scenarios.
When all of your teeth are missing, replacement used to mean dentures. Dentures are a handicap.
Implants are a way to make sure your next set of teeth look and feel natural. By placing multiple strategically positioned implants around the jaw, they can form the foundations for a full set of beautiful teeth. Nowadays, this often involves using the All on 4 concept
Each case must be carefully considered on an individual basis. The amount and quality of bone must be measured and the direction of any bone and soft tissue loss carefully considered. The number of implants will vary as will the material and techniques in the manufacture of your new teeth.
The team at the QVC Dental have many years experience in the consideration of these factors and can help guide you to the ideal solution for your personal situation.
The aim remains the same: To provide you with the confidence and comfort that a full set of natural looking teeth can provide. Over time your implant retained teeth will feel just like natural teeth.
When a tooth or teeth are lost, the bone and gums supporting them begin to diminish immediately. The longer you wait before implant placement the more tissue is lost. Therefore, is it normally best to replace teeth that need to be extracted immediately with a dental implants.
Since the first use of implants in dentistry, technology has changed dramatically. Thread design and surface texture have changed as has our understanding of the processes behind osseointegration.
The result is that modern implants, in many cases, can be loaded immediately following placement. This means teeth straight away.
Clearly circumstances such as the bone quality and quantity must be considered, but it is possible much more often than in the past.
Here at the QVC Dental, we understand the biological benefits of immediate replacement and realise the desire patients have that gaps be filled as soon as possible.
As such we strive to provide you with a temporary but natural looking tooth as soon as possible. We will put a tooth on an implant where possible, where the final result will be enhanced by this rather than jeopardised. This is the majority of single and multiple tooth replacement cases.
When a tooth or teeth are lost, the bone and gums supporting them begin to diminish immediately. The longer you wait before implant placement the more tissue is lost. Each case is different as are the needs of each person. However the careful consideration of the hard and soft tissue as well as the missing teeth in every case should never change.
Gum and bone grafting are techniques to encourage the growth of bone and soft tissue where they have been lost. This allows us to provide an optimum foundation for your dental implants and can be essential in cases where aesthetics are important.
There are many techniques to achieve a natural and lasting result, including block bone grafts, autogenous bone grafts, sinus lifts, allografts and xenografts. The idea behind any graft is that the transferred tissue is eventually replaced by your own tissue to help support the foundations for your new teeth.
The surgeons at the QVC Dental are very experienced in all forms of grafting and will explain the reasons and the rationale behind which method is best for you.
