Implants

 

Have you lost all or some of your natural teeth? Bridges and dentures are not the only solutions, thanks
to advances in modern dentistry. Have you heard of dental implants? Implant dentistry offers a clinically
proven and safe solution to getting a great smile back and being able to bite and chew with confidence.

 

This is how they work:

 

  1. Dental implants are small metal screws that are placed in the jaw in place of a missing tooth.

  2. Once established, crowns, bridges and dentures can be fixed onto the implants, creating a natural-looking and stable restoration.

Life Benefits:

  • When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone and surrounding tissues start to resorb or disappear over time. When implants are placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone to grow and mesh around the metal, along with tiny blood vessels, preventing bone loss.

  • Retained bone structure prevents the face from acquiring a ‘sunken’ look.

  • Implants help restore function so you can eat, chew and bite as usual.

  • Implants are a natural-looking way to replace missing teeth.

Same Day Teeth

If your dentures are becoming uncomfortable and tiring, we have a fast, efficient and comfortable solution that will give you a second chance at the feeling of a mouth full of stable, permanent teeth.

All-on-4 is a revolutionary and highly advanced new method that allows a full mouth of new teeth to rest with complete, proven stability on only four implants. Here’s what it involves:

  1. State-of-the-art technologies such as CT Scanners are used to plot the location of just four implants in your jaw (two in the upper, two in the lower)

  2. These implants form a sturdy base for a full arch of dentures to be secured on top of.

  3. The dentures will then be permanent. They look and function just like natural teeth.

  4. You walk out on the same day with a beautiful, natural, functional smile!

At NHS Dentist, we understand the impact a smile can have. We would never send you out without a complete smile. That’s why, usually, we will fit you with a temporary bridge (which looks identical to your natural teeth and functions just as well) before we add your permanent denture six months later.

We also offer sedation options for nervous patients. Dentistry doesn’t have to be frightening! With modern sedatives, many patients will hardly know they’ve been in surgery.

Life Benefits

  • Your perfect smile will enhance your confidence.

  • No need to hold back your laughter.

  • No need to restrict your choice of foods.

Denture Stabilisation

If you have loose or ill-fitting dentures, your ability to eat and speak may become affected. Due to advances in dentistry, there is now a procedure whereby your denture can be fixed to your jaw with dental implants. This treatment, known as implant overdentures or denture stabilisation, offers patients with dentures a more permanent solution and can improve quality of life significantly. You will be able to enjoy your favourite foods again and feel comfortable smiling, safe in the knowledge that your dentures are staying put. Here is how it works:

  1. You will require surgery to have the implants placed into your jaw.

  2. Once the implants have integrated with the bone and surrounding tissues for a period of time, your dentures are placed on top of the implants through a range of special fixtures.

  3. This means your dentures can still be removed for cleaning but will stay put once in place.

Life Benefits

  • Enjoy a natural-looking smile and improved confidence in public.

  • Experience less irritation of your gums caused by dentures and you don’t need to take your teeth out at night.

  • You can eat, chew and bite without your dentures falling out or having to stick to a soft food diet for the rest of your life.

Sinus Lifts

Have you worn dentures in your upper jaw for years? Did you know that there’s an alternative, more comfortable option?

If you’ve worn dentures for an extended period of time in your upper jaw, the bone will have receded, rendering it difficult to undergo implant treatment and giving your face a sunken appearance. A sinus lift makes use of the contours of your face to provide a second chance at the functionality and reliability of dental implants.

  1. Prior to the procedure, a number of tests will be run to ensure the suitability of the sinuses, which may include panoramic radio scans and CT scans.

  2. Similarly to a bone graft procedure, there are several options for the new bone material: from the patient, from other tissue sources (human or animal), or synthetic. Dr Manhem will advise which will be best for you.

  3. The sinus lift procedure will be performed by the dentist while you are under general anaesthetic.

  4. After a period of time, the site will be healed and ready for implants.

A sinus lift is a safe and clinically proven procedure and when completed with expertise and care it will provide the best, most stable base for life changing implant surgery. As with any surgical procedure, at our practice we ensure that you understand all aftercare instructions and we will check back with you regularly to ensure that the healing is going smoothly.

Life Benefits

  • A more youthful appearance will give you more confidence.

  • A second chance at the comfort and security of dental implants.

  • A long-term investment in your health and wellbeing.

Bone Grafts

Those who have worn dentures for years are likely to have suffered bone loss. This does not mean you are unable to receive dental implants; you can still have successful implant surgery through a clinically proven procedure called bone grafting.

Bone loss is bad news, not only for your teeth, but also for the facial structure. If a tooth is lost and not quickly replaced with a dental implant, over time the bone behind it will recede and give the face a sunken appearance. Bone grafts revitalise and rejuvenate the face while providing the best possible foundation for implant treatment.

  1. Bone for a graft is usually taken from your chin or hip in a routine operation procedure, usually in a hospital. Your own tissue is most likely to be successful, but other human or animal sources can be used. In some cases, synthetic material may be the best option.

  2. Dr Carl Manhem will insert this bone expertly into your jaw. The reallocated bone will mesh seamlessly into the surrounding tissue over a period of time.

  3. Once healed, the implant site will be as strong as natural bone and you’ll be ready for implants.

We know that just like any surgical procedure, a bone graft can be daunting. We are more than happy to talk you through your procedure step by step and work out the best arrangement for you. We’ll always make sure you’re fully aware of every option and comfortable with your informed decisions before moving forward.

Life Benefits

  • A more youthful appearance will give you a confidence boost.

  • A second chance at the comfort and security of dental implants.

  • A long-term investment in your health and wellbeing.
