Dental implants are a specialist treatment offered at The Dental Boutique with Specialist Periodontists, Dr Chris Barker & Dr Marina Kamel
A dental implant is a treatment for patients wanting to replace one or more teeth or spaces in the mouth. Ideal for teeth which can’t be restored, implants imitate the root structure of a tooth, allowing a crown to be placed on top of the tooth. Dental implants help improve tooth function and provide the appearance of a natural tooth.
With a high success rate - up to 99 percent, dental implants are the most biocompatible way to improve both function and aesthetics. Treatment takes between two and six months to allow the implant to fuse with the jawbone, ensuring it can support the new tooth. Implants can be used in conjunction with dentures to secure them more effectively in the mouth.
At The Dental Boutique, our objective is to provide you with the best possible outcome for your implants, in terms of functionality and appearance. It’s why our private dental clinic only uses premium brand implants backed by comprehensive research results. Whether you require just one tooth or a full mouth replacement, implants can change the way your mouth moves, how it functions, and how you smile.
Who can benefit from dental implants?
Dental implants can be used as part of a solution to a range of conditions, from lost teeth to severe decay or dental trauma. As each implant is fully custom for each patient, dental implants are a viable option for people of all age groups, as long as the jawbone’s growth is complete. Your eligibility for dental implants will depend on the condition of the gum, the health of the underlying bone and your overall health.
Why do implants make such a difference?
Losing one or more teeth can cause a loss of mass in your jaw. In turn, this affects the overall skeletal structure of your face, as well as your bite, or the way your teeth meet and muscles function. Over time, this may predispose you to increased risk of gum infection, tooth loss, mobility and fracture.
Other health risks, such as sleep apnoea, TMD and tinnitus are also considerations. Missing teeth can change the appearance of your face too. Thin lips and drooping muscles and jowls can all be caused by a loss of teeth, as can increased tongue size, loosening of remaining teeth, loss of sensation, and even severe pain.
Dental Implants can help avoid all these issues, if planned well, including correct implant selection, and placed with diligent care in a healthy mouth. Dental implants are placed in two stages. The first stage is to place the dental implant into the bone, while in stage two, the implant supported porcelain tooth is placed.
Could full arch implant placement or “All on Four” work for you?
Where a person has experienced loss of numerous teeth, we may consider cosmetic dentistry treatment such as full arch implant placement or “All on Four”. Using digital smile design technology, we design a dental implant treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.
Suitable for people who have badly broken down teeth, decayed teeth or compromised teeth due to gum disease, in a full arch implant replacement, two anterior implants are placed near the front of the mouth, while two posterior implants are placed towards the back of the mouth. These four implants support the replacement of all 16 teeth that make up a single arch of teeth.
Although the process of integrating the titanium implant takes several months, once completed, the placement of the teeth is straightforward, occurring in a single visit.
