If you have had a tooth removed or your due for an extraction, then dental implants may be a suitable treatment for you. Implants act as the new roots of the tooth as they integrate with the jaw bone. They then hold in place the prosthesis which replaces the crown of the tooth (e.g. dental bridge, crown, denture etc).
The suitability of dental implants will be very case dependent. What this means is, the site of the missing teeth will need to be assessed to ensure that an implant could be successfully placed. A few factors that need to be considered will be the patients general health & dental health. If you have poor health it can affect the success of the implant, and could cause it to fail. If you suffer from gum disease you will need to have this treated first as it can cause the implant to fail as well as other teeth to fall out.
To successfully place implants you will also need to have enough bone density in the jaw for the implant to fuse with. In some cases, a bone graft may be required before an implant can be successfully placed. Another factor is the space of the gap. If the space is too small, then an implant may not fit in the gap (depending on the anatomy of your jaw).
With implant cases it can quickly become very complex and is not as straight forward as other treatments. Because of this, we offer free consultations so we can examine your case and discuss what treatments will be the most suitable for you.

Dental implants are a secure method of replacing missing teeth. They will act as the root of a tooth, which then anchors in the porcelain crown on top. It is quite a common misconception that for each individual tooth you have missing, you will then need to have the same amount of implants for replacement teeth.
This is very much dependent on where your missing teeth are. If you have a gappy smile and the gaps are not next to each other, then you will need to have a dental implant per gap. But for example, if you have three missing teeth which are adjacent to each other. It may be possible to have two dental implants which then bridge the gap (case dependent).
If you have a more severe case when you need to fully replace a full arch of teeth, then it could be 4-6 implants that are needed with an overdenture securely attached. What option will be the most suitable for you will be very case dependent as it does depend on the exact case of your teeth.

If your once well fitted dentures are starting to feel loose and not as comfortable as they used to be, it might mean that your dentures are due for an adjustment. What this means, is the base of the denture needs to be relined to match the new measurements of your jaw line.
A common problem associated with loosing teeth is the affects it has on your jaw bone, which is known as bone resorption. The bone around the missing site of the tooth will start to fade away causing the once well fitting dentures to become loose and uncomfortable. The speed at which bone resorption affects patients will vary from person to person. The relining is a process where the clinical denture technician will take your existing denture and modify them to fit the new ridges of your jaw. We will assess your mouth to identify what needs to be done and if it is possible with your current denture.
