When it comes to the replacement of missing teeth, Scott Arms Dental Practice has vast experience in replacing teeth with dental implants. We have treated thousands of patients since 1990 and placed 1000s of implants in that time, more than almost any other dental practice in the West Midlands. We receive referrals from many other local dentists and patients travel from all over England. The placement of a dental implant, one of the most successful a long-term ways to replace single or multiple teeth. A dental implant replaces missing teeth through the insertion of a small titanium insert into either the upper or lower jawbone, which serves to support the placement of a crown (or bridge or denture) much like a natural tooth root would do.
What dental implants could do for you?
- Replace missing teeth.
- Help you smile with confidence.
- Give you natural looking teeth.
- Eliminate your dentures or increase their stability.
- Allow you to chew your food with ease, so you can eat the foods you want to eat with confidence.
- Help maintain bone, which can be lost due to missing teeth.
- Delay signs of ageing by preventing further bone loss.
- Give you a better quality of life.
Osseointegration is the term used to describe the way the metal fuses to the bone in order to provide a strong foundation for the adjoining crown; this process is due to the biocompatibility of titanium and is the reason that this unique metal is used in implant dentistry. In over 96 per cent of patients osseointegration is successful and with appropriate care from both the patient and dentist, through home maintenance and routine check-ups, a dental implant should last for many years.
Dental implants are a very natural looking way to replace teeth and will look and act almost identically to your other teeth. Though both dentures and bridges look very natural during conversation and eating, on close investigation the methods by which they are retained in the mouth can be more obvious than dental implants, which are attached inconspicuously underneath the gum. Because dental implant teeth are made from a variety of high-quality porcelains you are able to choose the perfect shade to match your current teeth, or even whiten your smile, without looking unnatural.
One of the main advantages of dental implants is the ease with which they can replace the natural function of the mouth by providing ample chewing ability, regardless of the food, by maintaining their high-standard stability and retention under pressure. This is managed without any damage to neighbouring teeth, unlike bridges that require adjacent teeth to be trimmed to accommodate the replacement tooth and its supporting structures, making dental implants a very conservative and aesthetic method of tooth replacement. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not need to be removed for cleaning so you can brush them almost exactly as you would your normal teeth. Another reason that dental implants are a very popular way to replace lost teeth is because they maintain bone levels and prevent the shrinkage that results in the "sunken" looking face associating with aging. Bone loss is a natural phenomenon that occurs when there is no longer a tooth to hold in place, but after successful osseointegration of the dental implant the bone levels are maintained and facial structure remains unchanged.
A number of dentists at Scott Arms Dental Practice in Birmingham also have a special interest in the manufacturing, placement and maintenance of dentures. Dentists at Scott Arms Dental Practice have been specially trained to produce high-quality, comfortable, aesthetic dentures. There are a variety of dentures available at Scott Arms Dental Practice depending on what result you are after. Dentures are a successful way to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full dental arch. We are able to offer complete or partial dentures in a variety of materials, with varying cosmetic results and methods of retention, depending on what you want most out of your denture.
Some of our most popular dentures include high-impact acrylic dentures, which have a larger resistance to breakage for people who find their dentures are prone to cracking on either removal or dropping. Another very popular option for people who need complete dentures is to have them stabilised through the placement of dental implants (small titanium screws which fit into your gums and jawbone like natural teeth) that attach to the denture and secure it in place.
Dental implant-supported dentures are often more secure than traditional dentures and do not restrict taste as much as they gain their retention through the attachment to dental implants and not through the spanning of large amount of dental tissue. They are also a beneficial option for people who find their dentures are loose when eating or talking, dig in, or require a gluey fixative to remain in place.
One of the advantages of dentures over other treatment options is that it is very easy to fix or add replacement teeth to. Scott Arms is able to offer a "one day" repair service where the denture can be sent away one morning and be returned the following afternoon, either fixed or with the additional requested teeth.
