Tooth loss can be down to either damage or decay and can result in a variety of problems from difficulties speaking to problems eating. In addition it simply looks unattractive and can cause great confidence problems with the majority of people.
Loss of teeth also reduces the amount of bone in your mouth which consequently causes the structure that is supporting the cheeks to be lost. This means that the overall shape of the face is effected and will make you look older.
Before the introduction of dental implants a patient’s only option after the loss of a tooth would have been a partial denture or bridge if the situation was appropriate. But today, dental implant treatment is considered to be the number one, gold standard treatment for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants are are placed in the bone where the roots of the tooth once were, they are small titanium sockets that integrate with the bone, forming a bio-organic bond. After this, a crown/bridge can be fitted to the implant itself, this is a fixed solution that looks completely natural and just like a normal tooth. They can be placed next to natural teeth too.
At Re-Enhance we offer patients a wide variety of different dental implants that will bring back your natural smile back to life, as well as looking great they are just as functional as normal teeth & enable you to get on with your everyday activities.
If you are naturally experiencing tooth loss or have had an unfortunate accident that has led to lost part or whole tooth then dental implants are an ideal solution for you.
Although dental implants are a great and more natural looking alternative to dentures, they may not be for everyone and patients who have poor quality bone and gums may be at risk with this treatment. This can be caused by high alcohol consumption or regular smoking since it can impair the tissue repair process after the procedure, furthermore, those who have experienced previous gum and bone deterioration from periodontal disease may also want to re-consider dental implants. Our professional, specialist dental team can examine your mouth to see if you are suitable for this treatment and will work with you to find an appropriate alternative if not.
The main benefit of dental implants is the simple convenience of having a natural looking smile that is fixed unlike with dentures, which are functionally artificial in comparison to the alternative. A treatment such as a bridge may require dental work to be undertaken even on teeth that are not effected which can consequently weaken them in the long term – a dental implant will avoid this unnecessary and potentially harmful risk. Dental implant patients have noticed an increase in oral health in addition to a better facial appearance – not to mention an increased well being & a much more confident smile.
Re-Enhance want to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible during your dental implant treatment, we will discuss your concerns regarding any pain that you may experience & patients will receive a local anaesthetic or a conscious sedation, helping you to feel much more relaxed. During and immediately after the treatment you will not feel pain but once the anaesthetic has worn off it is common to experience discomfort and while the implants are healing there may be inflammation/tenderness. In this case you will be prescribed painkillers.
The healing and integration time for dental implants can vary depending on the patient (between six weeks to six months). We are here to support patients long after the treatment itself, with a 24 hour emergency phone line you can call Re-Enhance Dental at any point in the day should you require assistance. Re-Enhance will also regularly meet with you in follow up appointments to ensure that the treatment and healing process is progressing as normal; our dentists will advise you on whether bridges or temporary dentures are necessary while the implants heal.
Our dental hygienist will help you maintain both your natural and implant teeth after treatment. Dental Implants are replacements for teeth (with the implant fixed to the bone tissue), therefore the ways in which you care and look after them are very similar. It is essential that patients avoid damage to the implant area by brushing carefully and eating soft food initially; it is also recommended that you use fluoride containing toothpaste with chlorhexidine mouthwash and that you floss once a week.
Dental implants can last for up to thirty years and are well known for their long-lasting nature and high success rate. Despite their durability it is still recommended that you see our dentist periodically for a check-up.
After an initial consultation you’ll receive x-ray or CT scan, our dentists will advise you on the costs that will be associated with your particular treatment. Dental implant costs vary depending on the individual case; such as the amounts of implants needed and the materials used
