Replacing missing teeth can radically improve a person’s smile and the shape of their face. As well as boosting self-esteem.
Implant dentistry is the most advanced therapy available to replace teeth. In addition to looking and feeling like real teeth, dental implants allow you to:
- Improve your smile
- Eat the foods you enjoy
- Restore your confidence
A bridge is fixed to the remaining natural teeth restoring aesthetics and function. There are two types of bridge-:
A bridge fitted over prepared abutment teeth. A secure and long-lasting option.
A sticky bridge which is bonded to natural teeth and requires minimal tooth preparation.
Having a fixed bridge can make a fantastic improvement to the quality of your life and the treatment can be completed in two weeks!
There are two types of denture:
- Acrylic (plastic) dentures
- Cobalt Chromium (metal based) dentures
Only advised when some teeth are present
The advantages of Cobalt Chromium dentures are: –
- Better chewing (more stable; less movement of denture)
- Food more enjoyable (less coverage of the mouth)
- Stronger (metal is very hard, plastic can fracture)
- Lighter and thinner (plastic is more bulky)
- More healthy (less gum coverage)
If you want a fixed restorative option that leaves your teeth unaffected, then implant therapy will offer you a cost-effective solution for the long term. The treatment is comfortable to carry out and the results are long lasting.
At our Studios, we strive to diagnose dental problems accurately. Duplicate models of your mouth, X-rays, special gum measurements and the bite pattern are some of the factors we assess during a complete mouth examination. A treatment plan is then made giving you options and good advice as to which treatment best suits your individual needs.
