Dental implants Ringwood are becoming more and more popular because people are realising that they can be very beneficial. There are associated health benefits as well as mental and emotional benefits as well. They’re a high-quality alternative to dentures, and usually, last a very long time when properly maintained and looked after.
Our dental implants in Ringwood consist of the highest medical grade materials, and are composed of three sections:
These sections are always bespoke, tailored to your specific requirements. They will flow seamlessly together with your existing teeth, or you can choose to have a complete set. The pieces are constructed specifically to match your teeth, and once they’ve settled, you won’t even notice you’ve got Ringwood dental implants.
This is the ‘tooth’ section of the implant; the bit you can see when you smile or open your mouth. The crown is constructed from medical grade ceramic (also known as medical porcelain). This material exhibits the best-known enamel like attributes and mechanical properties, which makes it perfect for dental implants Ringwood.
The material is durable and long-lasting, with superior wear resistance compared to many other materials that have been considered previously in the medical profession.
This piece of material is usually octagonal or hexagonal, depending on the dimensions and requirements of the crown. This part of the dental implants in Ringwood serves to connect the Crown to the Screw securely. The material used to fabricate the abutments is most commonly medical-grade titanium, but zirconia, resin and PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) are also available options.
We only ever supply the highest grade materials for our dental implants Ringwood, and sometimes titanium isn’t the best option depending on the area in which it’s utilised. Areas which are of aesthetic importance, areas that are easily visible, tend to favour zirconia because of its closer appearance to enamel/ceramic.
This is the part of the implant that is embedded into the jawbone and provides anchorage for the dental implants in Ringwood. These screws act like the root of the tooth and are out of sight when the Ringwood dental implants are completed. As with the abutment, it’s generally constructed from medical-grade titanium.
That’s a hard question to answer because it depends on one thing: you. If you look after the Ringwood dental implants, they will last a life-time. If they’re neglected, then much like natural teeth, they will develop a coating of bacteria and plaque that will cause soreness, gum infections and other side effects.
If you’re missing teeth, your jaw can shrink in order to fill the gaps and protect exposed parts of the gums. This can lead to problems with eating, soreness, and other problems the more serious the shrinkage is. The dental implants Ringwood prevent this shrinkage and give you fully functional replacement teeth so you can enjoy the foods you may not have been able to otherwise.
Our treatment will consist of four steps:
The whole process can take up to 6 months, depending on how well your body acclimatises to the implants and recovers from the surgery. Usually, this process will take about 3-4 months, but sometimes it can be shorter.
The pre-surgery consultation will be an in-depth assessment of your general health, how your teeth fit together, overall oral health and your specific jaw bone density. The jaw bone density is perhaps the most important aspect because if your bone volume and density are insufficient, the implants won’t hold or the surgery could cause extensive damage to the jaw itself. If you think you may be allergic to titanium, please consult our practitioner before proceeding.
At the end of the consultation, you’ll be advised if you’re a suitable candidate for the surgery or not. If you’re not suitable for dental implants in Ringwood, we will guide you through other options that may be better suited to you. If the difference between suitable and not-suitable is minimal, there is a grafting procedure which can be completed in order to ensure successful ring dental implants.
