EDENTULISM (TOOTHLESSNESS) IS A DEBILITATING PROBLEM THAT MODERN DENTISTRY CAN SOLVE IN SEVERAL WAYS.

 

Are you missing out on life because you can’t find the right treatment option for your missing teeth? People who have missing teeth need to have teeth replaced to be able to eat and speak properly. Also, if your tooth is missing at the front of your mouth you may want an alternative choice to replace the lost tooth that will help you regain confidence.

There are essentially 3 ways of replacing missing teeth:

  1. Teeth implants
  2. Dentures
  3. Bridges

The most inexpensive option is removable dentures, which are false teeth you take out at night. Wearing them can take some getting used to, and they can sometimes slip out of position.

This brings us to a second option: implant-supported removable dentures. Simply by placing a few dental implants in your jaw, we can make removable dentures more stable and reliable so that they don’t slip when you talk or eat

 

Key points to note about implantsDental Implant

Dental Implants are titanium rods that are surgically inserted into the bone. There are now a whole host of different types of teeth implants available in the dental market. It is absolutely imperative that you receive the right type of implant for you. This will ensure greater long-term satisfaction. Find more information.

Also, it is absolutely necessary to carry out the procedure in sterile surgical conditions to minimise the risk of infection.

It’s an excellent solution, but there’s actually an even better one: fixed dentures or bridgework. By placing as few as four dental implants in both your upper and lower jawbones, we can give you an entirely new set of teeth that feel just like your own and never have to be removed.

If this sounds complicated, it really isn’t. Dental implant surgery is a routine procedure done right here in the dental office, usually under local anesthesia.

The implants themselves are very small titanium posts that serve as substitute tooth roots. But instead of anchoring natural teeth, implants attach to a set of lifelike prosthetic teeth — custom-made just for you.

These replacement teeth are referred to as “fixed dentures” or “fixed bridgework” because they are permanently attached.

It’s the next best thing to having your own teeth and an option we believe is optimal in the right circumstances.

Sometimes it’s even possible to remove the last of a person’s failing teeth and place implants on the same day. A temporary set of new teeth may also be attached to the implants then and there so that you don’t have to leave the office without teeth. In a few months, when your implants have fused permanently to your jawbone, we will attach your new permanent teeth.

We have a great team consisting of our Implantologist, Anaesthetist, Implant Coordinator, Patient Care Coordinator, Treatment Coordinator, who all worked together with Dr. Gurs Sehmi in order to make sure attention is given to every detail. Click here.

Important information regarding bridgesImplant supported bridge

This is where neighbouring adjacent teeth are used to support the missing tooth/teeth. It is a restorative procedure that requires treatment of the teeth either side of the space. Learn more.

There are many types of dental bridges and it is essential for the longevity of your entire mouth that the correct type of bridge is chosen. This is because with bridge treatment you want to minimise the pressures on your teeth and you want to create a stable bite but you also want your teeth to look good.

This is an alternative treatment option to dental implants or dentures.
