Dental implants are a good option if teeth are missing and if patients like a fixed option in that space that does not damage the existing teeth.

Dr. Rahul Sharma answers key questions regarding Dental Implants - including why Dental Implants are a great option for patients, how long Dental Implants can last for, and regarding suitability for having Dental Implants.

Implants

As well as affecting the way we look, missing teeth can have a big impact on self-confidence and can ruin social situations for some people. Dental implants can remove these worries and it’s nice to know they won’t fall out!

Dental implants are considered to be the next best thing to natural teeth because they are strong and secure and the way in which they are fitted allow them to feel and function like real teeth; because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.

Success rates of dental implants vary, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, dental implants have a success rate of up to 98% and, with proper care, implants can last a lifetime.

Your dentist will be happy to discuss dental implants with you and will be able to help you decide whether they are the best option for you. You can also discuss this and any other treatments with our Treatment Coordinator.

Dr. Kevin answers key questions regarding iDentures - including what they are, how they can be life changing for patients, and how long patients can expect them to last.

Dentures

If you’re struggling to chew your food then dentures could be the answer to your problems. They’re easily removable for cleaning and can be brushed alongside your other teeth too.

Acrylic

Looking for the most affordable option when it comes to using dentures to replace your teeth? Acrylic dentures are the answer. They are the most basic option. They are easy to fit and can be easily altered when needed as well, but are thick and bulky.

Cobalt Chromium

Cobalt Chromium Dentures can be used to replace any number of missing teeth, plus, their thin design ensures they’re comfortable to wear. As they’re cast to fit your teeth they’ll feel secure when you wear them, plus they’re less likely to change shape over time.

Valplast

If you want your dentures to look as natural as possible then a Valplast denture is the solution you need. These partial dentures are made from a plastic material that is flexible to mould to your mouth. Being able to adapt to the shape and movement of your mouth ensures that these dentures feel comfortable to wear.

Identure

Get your most true-to-nature smile with iDenture, dentures that are designed specifically for you with tooth shapes for different genders and colours that complement the age of your teeth.

If you’re concerned about the wear of your dentures, then iDentures are made from highly durable materials that are designed to resist wear, staining, cracking and chipping.

The main benefits of iDentures are that patients can get a smile personalised to their needs, and this blends well with the rest of the mouth. The unique press process for creating the base gives a precise fit for your mouth which feels comfortable and stable.

iDentures need only a soft denture brush and warm water to keep them clean on a daily basis. Ensuring caring for them is ideal for encouraging a positive sense of self wellbeing and good oral health.

 

Bridges

What is a bridge?

Missing teeth can cause issues for an otherwise healthy mouth, as your teeth drift into the empty space. Keep your smile in place with a bridge that’s a replacement for one or more missing teeth.

Fixed Bridgework

If you’re missing just one or a couple of teeth, fixed bridgework could be the best option to replace the teeth by attaching a false tooth between your natural teeth and creating a crown for the teeth on either side.

Resin-Bonded Bridgework

If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to traditional bridges, resin-bonded bridgework could be the option you need. This costs less as there is no work done to the adjacent teeth.
