Dental implants & mini implants
Teeth can be lost due to decay, infection or accidents. This can lead to impaired function and poor aesthetic appearance. Dental implants are the gold standard choice for the replacement of missing teeth.
A dental implant's longevity and ability to restore normal function and appearance of teeth make them the most reliable choice when compared to alternatives.
The dental implant is placed into the jaw bone following precise planning. Following a period of integration into the jaw bone, the final crown can then be attached to it.
Dental implants can be utilised to replace single teeth, multiple teeth, dental bridges and even provide support for full dentures.
Regain your confidence
Do you suffer form missing or broken teeth? Are you unable to enjoy eating your favourite foods due to difficulty chewing? People with missing or broken teeth often have low self-confidence and avoid social events due to the need to smile and display their teeth to others. There's no doubt that losing a tooth can affect you physically and emotionally. Thankfully, at David Vaughan Dental Care we can use implant technology to replace missing teeth, enhance and rejuvenate the aesthetics of your smile, and prevent bone deterioration. We can allow you to say goodbye to loose, ill-fitting dentures.
Enjoy a more youthful appearance
If teeth are lost, the supporting bone in your jaw will shrink. Placement of dental implants can preserve this bone, maintaining the structure and shape of the lips and cheeks and preventing the ‘caved in' look of some older people with dentures. Dental implants have revolutionised tooth restoration and we offer dental implants and mini implants as a permanent, cost-effective solution for missing and broken teeth.
Suitable for the majority of adults, dental implants act as a long-lasting solution for natural function. They look, feel and work just like the real thing. As with natural teeth, dental implants require thorough cleaning. However, they are a tried and tested treatment. Studies have shown that the long-term survival of implants can be as high as 90% at 20 years. This compares very favourably with conventional dental treatment. It is very important that implants are well looked after and that regular hygienist treatment is undertaken.
Traditionally, dental implants would have to be placed and left for six months before they could be used to replace a tooth. However, the modern TBR system sometimes allows a temporary tooth to be placed at the same visit as the implant. David has now completed several Mini-Implant cases, which are used to stabilise full dentures.
The advantages of using the unique Mini or Midi Implant technology include no surgery of the gum, no drilling of the bone, no stitches, no waiting and fewer visits. The new Mini and Midi Implants are the perfect system to provide greater denture stability for those refused regular implants due to a lack of bone, or who simply cannot afford the cost of conventional implants.
