Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth.

A titanium screw is inserted into the bone and the bone is allowed to heal round it.

After this a tooth can be placed on top. A dental implant can be used to replace one tooth, or two can be used to place a bridge. In addition implants can be used to secure a denture in place for maximum comfort and chewing ability.

The benefit of dental implants when compared to a bridge is that teeth either side of the gap can be left alone.

There are many things to consider when you have missing teeth.

Dental implants are a fantastic development but are not always an option due to limited bone and they are not successful in all cases, for example if you are a smoker you are at high risk of implants failing. Implants require maintenance and regular cleaning for their long-term success.

Here at love-teeth we are lucky to have expert restorative dentist Dr Leo klein who both places and restores implants, meaning that the surgery stage and the tooth building stage will all be done in the same place.

In addition Dr Klein has many other alternatives to implants for those wanting to replace missing teeth that may not have enough bone or don’t fancy surgery.

Having worked in Germany for a number of years, he uses a variety of amazing techniques not generally used in the UK, and even gets them made there, sending impressions across by courier!

One of these options is telescope bridgework.

This is especially useful in cases with missing teeth due to gum disease, which may then not have sufficient bone to have implants. The remaining teeth can be used to hold a bridge which is removable and also acts as a splint to hold the teeth in place and stop them becoming mobile.

How it works.

A missing front tooth. A hole is prepared in the jaw bone in stages.
An Implant is fitted … and a healing cap inserted. When the Implant has healed, the healing cap is exposed … and an abutment inserted. A crown is then fitted to the abutment.

When a multi-unit bridge has been fitted … It is important to keep the bridge and the gums clean.
Use superfloss for effective cleaning of free and attached surfaces. Brushing technique remains the same at a 45 degree angle with the gum and tooth.
All surfaces should be brushed twice a day.
