Can dental implants Navan help me to chew properly?Tuesday, 12th October, 2021
This is a common request from patients who have missing teeth and misaligned jaws and teeth. There are a variety of possible solutions available, but as we are all different in one way or another, one solution does not fit all. Dental implants Navan can help you return to chewing properly and expand the range of foods you can eat. Tooth loss in the front or the back can damage a patients morale and confidence and can cause medical problems in the digestive system. We can discuss the correct treatment only after a comprehensive examination and a proper assessment of your condition.
Amazing progress in dental procedures
It has been seven decades of technology and science combining to deliver dental implants Navan, which is now at such a high standard that we perform this procedure regularly today. At Navan Dental, we have invested in the equipment and training and honed our techniques over the years in order to provide this treatment to you. There is no need for you to suffer the problems that missing teeth can cause because we are here to help. We want you to have as close a replacement as possible to your natural teeth so that you can go about life as you did before tooth loss.
What is the process
We will examine your mouth, take x-rays and, in some cases, a 3D scan to determine the condition of your teeth, gums and jaw. This procedure requires a healthy and reasonably dense jawbone to achieve maximum success. In many instances, even if your jawbone is not dense enough, we can perform a bone graft.
In the past, titanium or synthetic mesh was used and formed in the patient's mouth, which made it difficult to achieve the desired result. However, new technology has overcome this challenge by using digital technology to create the required titanium mesh that is shaped exactly and uses the precise volume to fit your jaw.
Once the jawbone is of the correct density, you must return to us for the implantation procedure. Under a local anaesthetic, we will make a small incision in your gum, where the new tooth needs to be placed. A small hole is then drilled into the jawbone to make way for the new titanium post that acts in the same way as your root does for a natural tooth. It takes between 2 and 3 months for the titanium to fuse with the bone, providing a good solid base.
During the next appointment, we will take a mould of your tooth to make an abutment and crown. The abutment acts as a connection between the titanium post and the crown. The next phase requires us to reopen the gum and screw the abutment into the post, which will take roughly another two weeks to heal. Once your gum has healed, we will place the crown onto the abutment by either using a bonding agent or screwing it in. This crown will have been moulded and coloured to match your existing natural teeth.
Normal dental use returns
After a few weeks, you can continue eating and drinking as normal, enjoying the pleasure that your new teeth give you since dental implants Navan are a stable and permanent replacement for lost teeth. We, at Navan Dental, are here to help correct your dental problems, allowing you to go about your daily life with a healthy smile.« Back
