SINGLE TOOTH REPLACEMENT
Historically either a denture or a traditional bridge has been used to replace a missing single tooth. Dentures can be cumbersome and affect patient confidence and general oral health. A traditional bridge is constructed by reducing adjacent teeth leading to a permanent destruction of tooth structure.

An implant retained single tooth offers a permanently fixed solution which preserves adjacent teeth and prevents the resorption of the underlying bone.

 

Molar replacement with a wider diameter implant.

 

Advantages:

  • Looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth
  • Adjacent teeth preserved
  • Prevents further bone resorption providing better long term aesthetics
  • Normal oral hygiene measures
  • Not prone to secondary decay
Using narrow diameter implants to help mimic the smaller shape of the lower incisor.

Indications:

  • Adjacent teeth un-restored
  • Adjacent teeth heavily restored
  • Deep overbite
  • Spaced dentition
  • Patient preference

MULTIPLE UNIT BRIDGEWORK

Multiple implants can be used to replace teeth. This is of particular benefit in free end saddle areas where fixed conventional bridges are not possible.

Patients can also find dentures in these situations difficult to tolerate.


Implants can also be used to replace failed bridgework without preparing adjacent teeth and extending the bridge span.

STABILISING DENTURES
Implants can be used to help retain bars or studs which can be useful for patients who find it difficult to naturally support conventional dentures.

A simple but effective treatment involves using two studs.


A permanently fixed bar offers more stability and rigidity.

SAME DAY TEETH
Current developments in techniques make immediate reconstruction a reality for suitable patients. The concept of 'same day teeth' is based on inserting implants and restoring them all in one working day.
