Dental implants are the talk of the dental world. When it comes to replacing one or more of your natural teeth, implants are the popular choice.
At The Mall, we use the latest digital implantology systems to ensure accurate placement of implants. In most cases, we can place implants and restorations with immediate effect, without the need for lengthy healing periods that are traditionally needed.
How do dental implants work?
A dental implant is made up of a small titanium screw that is placed in the jawbone, where it acts as replacement tooth root. Over a healing time, a process called osseointegration occurs, wherein the implants merge with the bone, providing a strong foundation for your replacement teeth. These range from bridges to implant-secured dentures; it is all dependent on your preference and how many teeth are missing in the mouth.
Why should I replace my teeth?
Gaps in your mouth not only affect your confidence when smiling but they can also restrict what food you can eat. The gaps where teeth are missing also create further dental problems when food gets trapped in difficult to clean areas. The teeth that surround gaps in your mouth also become crooked over time.
At the Mall, our dentists encourage patients to replace missing teeth as soon as possible after losing them, so that problems as serious as bone loss do not have the chance to arise. However, those who have been wearing dentures for years can still have dentures and the right replacement for your missing teeth. We have skilled surgeons who specialise in dental implants.
What is Digital implantology?
Only the latest digital implantology systems are used at The Mall to aid in the design and placement of your implants. Our dentists are able to plan the best position of your implants from a prosthetic, cosmetic and biological point of view, while the computer-guided surgery ensures they are placed in the perfect location for osseointegration. In many cases, this means implants and restorations can be fitted immediately.
Dental technology has come so far and there is no better time to replace your missing teeth because of it. Get in touch with The Mall today about replacing your missing teeth.
