Missing Teeth? We’ve got the Perfect Solution!

Losing a tooth can cause a number of problems, including discomfort when eating, the movement of surrounding teeth and damage to the appearance of a smile. However, losing a tooth doesn’t have to be the end of the world, as today’s dental technology has an ace up its sleeve: dental implants.

What are dental implants and what can they do for me?

Dental implants are basically false teeth that not only replace a missing tooth, but also the tooth root. Dental implants are comprised of a metal titanium post, which is fitted into the jawbone and left to fuse. Once your implant is solidly in place, an abutment can be attached, to which a false tooth or teeth is finally fitted.

What does the procedure for dental implants involve?

Firstly, you will be assessed to see if you are suitable for implants. If you are suffering with bone density problems, you may have to undergo a bone graft, which is used to strengthen your jawbone. Once your jaw is pronounced fit for implantation, the gum tissue around the jawbone the implant is to be fitted is lifted and a small hole is made, into which the implant is inserted. The gum tissue will then be stitched over the implant and your gum will be left to heal for around three to six months. After this time, the tissue over the implant will be lifted and an abutment will be fitted, to which your new tooth or teeth are then fixed.

How many teeth can I replace with dental implants?

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth (in which can a crown will be attached), several teeth (a bridge will be used in this instance) or a whole arch of teeth (several implants and dentures will be used in this case).  Contact the team at Advance Dental Clinic in the heart of Chelmsford for more information.

Maldon offers you the Dental Implant

Its amazing how small towns in the UK now offer the most advanced and up-to-date treatment around today in the world of dentistry, even to the point that you can have a dental implants fitted in little old Maldon. This was once the treatment for the rich, because there were so few dentists who were able to carry it out, causing huge waiting lists and hence, making it very expensive. It was also bogged down by the equipment of the day, which although could get the job done, meant a long time in recovery. How things change and for the better eh? Laser keyhole surgery has made this a simple procedure to perform and once the hole is made in the jawbone, the titanium rod can be screwed with the minimum of fuss; healing is mighty quick too, because using a laser greatly reduces the damage done to the surrounding gum tissue. In layman’s terms, it mean that you can have a implant placed in an hour and if you are really lucky, you can have the new fitting added to it straight after. The Advance

Dental clinic operates out of Chelmsford, but it does serve the area and if you contact them, they can tell you everything about implant technology. Call 01245 268 494 for a free consultation at Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford.


Maldon offers you the Implant with advice from Advance Dental

Tooth loss can be a grave time in Maldon, but it can be an even graver time afterwards trying to decide how to rectify the problem. You should always look at all of the options on the table and get some advice from those that know, people like Advance dental care of Chelmsford. There are first the health reasons behind finding a replacement as the loss of a tooth or teeth can put extra strain on the remaining teeth and cause them to move and suffer from infection and further tooth decay. But there is also a cosmetic reason to get a tooth replaced because not only can it show on your face, but it can also look ungainly when you smile. Dental bridges are good, as are partial dentures, but the best way to have a tooth replaced is to go for a dental implant. It is a run-of-the-mill treatment these days, mainly due to the precision technology that surrounds it. The basic principles of implant procedures remain the same- it still involves screwing a small titanium rod into the jaw bone in order to take the new fitting, but long gone are the epic recovery times associated with this treatment in the past because of key-hole laser surgery that is so precise, whilst limiting the damage done to surrounding gum tissues, that some implants can be done in a day. They are strong, infection free and in forever, becoming the foundations for new crowns, bridges or dentures. Call 01245 268 494 for a free consultation at Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford.


Maldon dentists offer dental implants to restore brilliant smiles

It is vital that you replace a lost tooth for the ease of speaking eating and drinking that it will provide. Dental implants are a long term solution to this as they will restore the aesthetics of your mouth, allowing you to smile with confidence.

You may have lost a tooth because of a variety of reasons such as an accident or trauma. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a loss of teeth through decay and sometimes simply old age can bring tooth loss. Increasingly people are turning to dental implants instead of dentures or fixed bridges to restore lost teeth. Acting as a replacement for the root of your lost tooth, dental implants are made from titanium which is extremely durable. Ultimately these implants will fuse with the surrounding bone in a process known as osseointegration that will give the tooth a support which is stable.

Having assessed the area for debris or decay which may compromise the process, your dentist will take an xray or CT scan then make an incision in the jaw while you are under local anaesthetic. Into this incision the titanium implant will be installed and then the dentist will stitch the area back up, allowing you to undergo a process of healing during which you may have to wear a temporary replacement attached to the implant.

Dental implants offer a long –term solution to tooth loss and you can clean your replacement teeth just like you would a normal tooth. They are secure enough to last a lifetime providing you care for them as you do the rest of your mouth. Contact your Maldon dentist today and find out about a solution to tooth loss that is more practical than dentures and will allow you to smile, eat and drink with confidence and ease.

Maldon Dental Clinic Offers Full Mouth Reconstruction

People whose teeth are in a very bad condition do not need to despair any longer.  They can opt for a full mouth reconstruction service. This includes many dental procedures, all of which together will give the person a brand new smile. The various procedures that a full mouth reconstruction consists of are implants, veneers, crowns an even bridges. The objective of this procedure is to straighten teeth that are crooked and to fix teeth that are broken or chipped, while using the best quality materials to ensure that the final result is very lifelike.

This is a very complicated process, as can be estimated from the numbers of different procedures required to get the finished product. The dentist has to first plan it carefully so that he or she can take the minimum time possible and do the least possible number of procedures. This entire process might also require the services of more than one dentist since some of the procedures involved are highly specialized.

A dental clinic in Maldon offers this service and it can do so only because it has invested in the latest state of the art equipment. In addition, it has dentists who are well versed in the latest procedures. There is no denying the fact that the entire process is time consuming and also quite expensive. However, people whose teeth are very badly and irreparably damaged are only too happy to pay for this procedure that can bring a smile to their faces.

An Epping dentist advises on general dentistry

General dentistry is the term used to describe all the services a modern dentist surgery offers, says an Epping dentist. This can be anything from advice about oral care to a dental implant, with teeth whitening and repairs in between. Starting with oral care all dentists now have an oral care nurse on duty to advise their patients how to take better care of their teeth, this will range from flossing and brushing techniques to choosing the correct brush for the individual patient. From the time you get your first molars to the time you start losing your adult teeth, your dentist will be able to advise you on the best way to prevent premature loss of your teeth. Teeth whitening is a fairly new facility offered by general dentistry practitioners, this used to be something that cosmetic dentists had a monopoly on as their clients tended to very rich ones. With new techniques and less training time whitening has become very popular over the past 10 years. Your dentist can also offer you veneers that solve many problems from discolouration to crooked, chipped and cracked teeth. Veneers are offered in either a thin version or a porcelain one, they are glued or cemented into the surface of the tooth and basically cover up any of the problems mentioned. They last from 3-5 years for thin veneers and 10-15 years for porcelain ones, both are replaceable. For more complicated problems a dentist can also handle dental implants, these are used to replace lost teeth with false ones that are permanently anchored to the jaw bone just like a real tooth. A crown is also possible to replace part of a damaged tooth, and this facility comes with a bridge version that anchors a false tooth between two other false teeth, these are anchored onto the teeth either side of the false one.

Maldon dentist replaces missing tooth with solid dental implant

Many patients find that some dental substitutes such as partial dentures and dental bridges are just not strong enough and cause constant anxiety about breaking. This can have an impact on their life and prevent them enjoying it to the full, especially when it comes to eating. Patients are often looking for a more long-term and solid solution to a missing tooth and often find it in the form of a dental implant.

A dental implant is the only artificial dental substitute that replaces the whole of the tooth from root to tip. The implant itself is only the small titanium screw that makes up the root portion of the restoration. This is screwed directly into the jawbone in a procedure that sounds a lot more unpleasant than it actually is. When secure in the bone, the dentist will leave the implant for several weeks to fully fuse with the bone and soft tissue around it.

Once fully secure, the implant will now act exactly the same as an actual tooth root and can act as a base for an artificial crown to be attached. This is secured to the implant using a screw and post device. Once attached, the whole implant is incredibly sturdy and feels just like a real tooth. Thanks to the porcelain crown attached, with its enamel-like qualities, it also looks exactly like a real tooth. The other major benefit of the dental implant is that it lasts a lifetime, unlike other dental replacements which need to be replaced every ten years or so. This means once the surgery is complete you can completely forget that the implant is there and enjoy your life just as you would with a full set of real teeth. There is no need to suffer with the embarrassment of a missing tooth or with the frustration of an inadequate dental replacement, ask a Maldon dentist about dental implants and get the security and comfort you deserve.
