Do you avoid smiling in photographs due to missing teeth? Is it harder to eat your favourite foods because of prominent gaps?
Regardless of your age, missing teeth can be more than a simple aesthetic issue; many people with gaps in their smile avoid social situations more often, alongside feeling embarrassed about smiling or laughing. While in the past, the gold standard of restorative procedures was either dentures or fitted bridges, today, there are more options available.
If you want a more permanent, secure alternative to bridges or dentures, come along to Bromley Dental Practice!
Our team is proud to offer a myriad of restorative procedures to our patients who have lost teeth, with our most popular solution being dental implants in Bromley. Fitted securely to your jaw, these prosthetic teeth do not move, do not cause rubbing and feel just like natural teeth! Perfect.
But, what are the different types of dental implants in Bromley and how does our team choose the right one for you? Read on to find out.
The perfect solution if you’re missing a single tooth, typical dental implants in Bromley comprise of one implant being fitted into your jaw, with one prosthetic tooth attached when the implant is secured.
Depending on the overall condition of your jaw and gums, our team may be able to attach the prosthetic tooth once they have fitted the implant, but typically, there is a waiting period of around 6 months, to allow your jaw to grow around the implant, holding it firmly in place.
The prosthesis will be colour, size, and shape matched to the other teeth in your mouth and will look completely natural.
If you have lost multiple teeth in a row due to injury or illness, then multiple implants are the answer for you!
Using computer technology to predict the best place for the implants, our team will be able to fill even large gaps in your smile using a single or two implants. Fitted to your jaw with a prosthetic bridge or denture, this option looks natural and will once again, be colour, size, and shape matched to the rest of your natural teeth.
Once your jaw has grown to accommodate your implants, your multiple prosthetic teeth will feel like natural teeth, allowing you to bite into your favourite foods without issue.
Have you lost all of your teeth due to illness or age? Are you currently wearing a set of dentures but are fed up with them rubbing against your gums? If so, fixed or overdentures are the answer!
Our team will usually place 4 implants into your upper and lower jaw, to ensure that your dentures stay in place securely. Once fitted to your jaw, we will attach the dentures, or prosthetics to your implants and voila! A new set of teeth that can bite, chew and allow you to laugh, without fear of them falling out or moving!
