Perhaps you are an existing patient of the Same Day Teeth Suite, or you had your implants fitted elsewhere.  No Matter. What does matter, however, is how you care for your dental implants in the future.  Not an afterthought but an essential postscript to your treatment to avoid infection, failure or complications, going forward.  You need your implants to last a long time and the Same Day Teeth Suiteare here to see you prevent any problems.

The quality of the dental implants and how well you care for them dictates their longevity and whether you have a trouble-free experience.  We use high-quality implants made by well-established companies who have invested in research and technology to provide dentists with an excellent and trusted product.  We don’t use anything less than the best as dental implants need to integrate and heal well in the jaw bone for a long lifespan.

The implant abutment, or prop, is an important factor in ensuring the dental implant will not get infected and fail. There are various types of abutments available, but we use cad cam abutments for our patients wherever possible.  CAD-CAM abutments are milled using computer technology to make a precision fit.  With such an accurate fit, there are no micro gaps, avoiding the risk of failure. By using good quality, strong abutments, they can withstand the bite force, a potential risk in lesser props. The bite force on a dental implant is increased, as opposed to the bite force on a natural tooth. Experienced technicians using computer technology take this into account when engineering our implants to make sure they last as long as possible.

Not only do the abutments have to be well made and precision engineered but the design of the crown and the bridge is of no less magnitude.  The choice of quality materials and the experience of the technician play a vital role in the superiority of the finished bridge and crown.  The best workmanship not only ensures the longevity of the finished product but makes sure it does not feel alien in your mouth.  Ill-fitting crowns and bridges not only feel uncomfortable but are difficult to clean, leading to infections.  We only use crowns and bridges that are made using advanced technology giving you natural-looking crowns and bridges that fit well.  You deserve the best, and we only fit the best.

Predominantly, in caring for your dental implants, it is important to visit the hygienist every six months.  The hygienist will be able to clean all plaque from your implants and clean those inaccessible areas below the gum line. They will also be able to check how well you clean your teeth at home and advise you, spotting problem areas before any infection sets in. Brushing, flossing and using mouthwash at home is an essential part of your care routine but is only half as effective as including regular visits to the hygienist in prolonging the life of your dental implants. Not all hygienists have the necessary skills or equipment to look after implants.  Be sure to check their experience and qualifications. At our Nottingham clinic, we have a qualified hygienist who will look after your implants expertly.

If you need dental implants, would like your old implants replaced or need to see a hygienist, book an initial consultation.
