If you have lost multiple teeth, you may be wearing a denture or partial denture. This can be a real burden, potentially causing embarrassment, discomfort and generally having a negative impact on your quality of life.
Did you know you don't have to eat soft foods or wear dentures for the rest of your life? Implants for multiple missing teeth are a viable and clinically proven alternative to missing teeth.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that integrate perfectly into your gum tissue, just where the root of your teeth would sit. These are metal screws that are placed in the jawbone and on which one or many artificial teeth can be supported.
Your dental implants will look just like normal teeth. You will still be able to bite and chew normally, and the bone in your jaw will remain intact over time.
The process involves a surgical placement of a titanium screw or screws in the jawbone. The operation is usually carried out using local anaesthetic. Sometimes a sedation drug may be advised to make the patient feel more relaxed. In rare circumstances, general anaesthetic can be used.
At Bobby Chhoker Clinic we like to find a solution for everybody. At your consultation we will assess the best treatment for you. Often patients are told they do not have sufficient bone for implants, but this is something that can be managed at Bobby Chhoker Clinic.
The success rate for treatment is high (90 percent). Age is not an important factor although implants are not generally recommended for age under 18 years old.
For long term success, it's vital that you maintain an excellent standard of oral hygiene and routine visits to check your implant. Smoking can adversely affect the chances of your implant being successful.
