Are you exploring options for replacing one or multiple missing teeth? Platinum Dental offers the very best Newcastle dental implants, using our advanced guided dental implant system.
Platinum Dentals’ commitment to quality ensures that our Dental Implants are at the cutting edge of modern-day dental technology. They are made from a biocompatible titanium alloy which allows seamless integration with your jaw and existing teeth.
The process for getting a dental implant typically involves the following:
- Consultation: The first step is to schedule a consultation with our dentist to determine if dental implants are the right solution for you. During this consultation, we will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jawbone to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. This may include taking X-rays.
- Planning and Preparation: If you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, we will create a customized treatment plan that will take into account your specific needs and goals.
- Surgery: The next step is to have the implant surgically placed into the jawbone. This procedure is typically done under local anesthesia, and single implants can often be placed in under 45 minutes. (The process will take longer depending on how many implants you have placed)
- Healing and Osseointegration: After the implant is placed, the jawbone will need to heal and fuse to the implant, a process called osseointegration. This can take several weeks or months, depending on the individual case and the quality of the jawbone.
- Placement of the Abutment: Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone, a small connector post called an abutment is placed on the implant.
- Placement of the Restoration: The final step is to place the restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, on top of the abutment. This restoration will be custom-made to match the shape, size, and colour of your natural teeth and will be designed to also look and function like your natural teeth.
There are several reasons why someone might need dental implants, including:
Missing Teeth: Dental implants can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They provide a secure and natural-looking solution for people who have lost teeth due to injury, disease, or decay.
Damaged Teeth: Dental implants can also be used to replace damaged teeth that are beyond repair. This may include teeth that have been cracked, chipped, or broken or teeth that have undergone root canal therapy.
Improved Functionality: Dental implants provide a stable base for replacement teeth, which means that they can be used to eat, speak and smile with confidence. This can be especially beneficial for people who have difficulty eating or speaking due to missing or damaged teeth.
Preservation of Jawbone Structure: Dental implants can help to preserve the structure of the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining the natural shape of the face. This is especially important for people who have lost teeth and are at risk of developing facial collapse.
Support for Dentures: One of the biggest benefits of Dental implants is their use to support dentures, making them more stable and secure. This can be beneficial for people who have difficulty keeping their dentures in place or who experience discomfort with traditional dentures. If you struggle with slipping dentures, then implant retained dentures may be the answer for you.
There are several benefits of dental implants, including:
Natural Appearance: Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. They are designed to blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth and are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Improved Functionality: Dental implants provide a stable base for replacement teeth, which means that they can be used to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
Preservation of Jawbone Structure: One of the main benefits of dental implants is that they can help to preserve the structure of the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining the natural shape of the face.
Durable and Long-lasting: Dental implants are designed to be durable and long-lasting. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for many years and even a lifetime.
Suitable for People of all Ages: Dental implants are suitable for people of all ages and can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. They can also be used to support dentures, making them more stable and secure.
Easy to Care for: Dental implants are easy to care for and can be cleaned and maintained just like natural teeth.
Cost-effective: Dental implants are a cost-effective solution in the long term as they can last for many years, unlike traditional dentures or bridges that need to be replaced every 5-7 years.
Your dental implant design and placement are at the leading edge of dental technology. We use computers to design a customised guide for your implant, which offers several benefits over traditional implant placement methods, including:
Increased Accuracy: Guided dental implants utilise computer-guided technology to plan and place the implant with greater precision. This can result in a more accurate placement of the implant, which can lead to better stability and more natural-looking restoration.
Reduced Treatment Time: Because of the increased accuracy and precision of guided dental implants, treatment time is generally shorter than traditional implant placement methods. This can result in less time in the dental chair and a faster recovery period.
Reduced Surgical Trauma: Guided dental implant placement typically requires less surgical intervention, which can result in less trauma to the jawbone and surrounding tissue. This can lead to a faster healing time and a lower risk of complications.
Predictable Outcomes: Guided dental implant placement allows for a more predictable outcome, as the dentist or oral surgeon can plan and place the implant in a way that will provide the best possible outcome.
Better Aesthetics: Guided dental implants are designed to optimize the final aesthetic outcome by allowing the dentist or oral surgeon to place the implant in the best position to achieve optimal esthetics.
Improved Bone Preservation: Guided dental implant placement can help to preserve the structure of the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining the natural shape of the face, which is particularly beneficial for patients with limited bone height.
In summary, Platinum Dental guided dental implants are a newer and more advanced method of placing dental implants that offers several benefits over traditional implant placement methods.
