When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, dental implants are the best permanent solution. Implant restorations are now not considered to be a new treatment option. There has been a significant amount of research in this field to prove that well planned and carefully performed treatment may give long term functional and aesthetic results and improve patients quality of life.
 
Dental implants may be used to secure dentures to stop them moving, giving the patient the confidence to socialise and laugh freely. Two to four implants are normally used to achieve this. Four or more implants in either jaw may also be used to provide a solid foundation for fixed bridges. It is frequently possible to insert an immediate temporary fixed bridge on the day of surgery in full jaw cases.
 
Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported full fixed bridges or dentures are also more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures, allowing you to retain a more natural biting and chewing capacity.
 
Benefits of dental implants over dentures:
  • you will be able to eat and function just as if you have natural teeth
  • the implants are a solid, stable solution that will serve you for many years
  • facial appearance is preserved and bone loss is prevented

Those who have lost all of their teeth — or are soon to have their last, failing teeth removed — have several options for tooth replacement.
Immediate load is when a tooth is placed on to your dental implant within 24 - 48 hours of surgery. For many years, dental implants have been the sole option for many who’ve suffered with lost or bad teeth.
If the bone under your gum is not tall enough, not wide enough, too thick or too soft, a procedure can be done to add bone to your jaw before implants can be placed.
