New teeth: A beautiful new set of teeth - Gum aesthetic
Before you undergo an aesthetic procedure it is important that your gums and jawbone are completely healthy. We can help you with this, but perhaps it is better if you consult your general dentist.
Prepare properly for your visit to the Wellness Kliniek
Before considering aesthetic dentistry it is important that:
- your gums and jawbone are healthy.
- that your existing teeth are in a good condition.
For patients that have to travel a considerable distance to the Kliniek it is important that their visits are organised as efficiently as possible. Aesthetic dentistry is a supplement (a specialisation) to general dentistry. Firstly, it is important that your mouth or gums are completely healthy, before you can consider having aesthetic treatment.
Proper preparation for aesthetic dentistry gives the best long term results.
A new set of teeth: Professional mouth disinfection
Clean teeth form the basis for aesthetic dentistry
Practising good dental hygiene will keep your teeth and gums healthy. Brushing your teeth is the basis for keeping your mouth healthy, but professional cleaning and clinical procedures may also be necessary before your aesthetic dentist can fit implants, crowns, bridges or a new set of teeth.
- Clinican mouth disinfection removes all plaque and scale.
- It may be necessary to extract teeth that are unsalvageable.
Healthy gums are a pink colour, fit closely around the teeth and do not bleed. Good dental hygien can prevent a build up of plaque and scale.
In most cases, professional dental cleaning is recommended.
Insufficient jawbone no longer poses a problem
Healthy jawbone forms a good foundation for a new set of teeth or implantology.
The jawbone shrinks with age or as a result of wearing a loose set of dentures. Fortunately insufficient jawbone no longer poses a problem for implants. This is why most people opt for a row of permanent teeth fitted on implants. The initial cost is higher than a traditional set of dentures, but the result is permanent and the volume of jawbone remains stable over time.
If, as a result of your old dentures, not much jawbone is available, often it is still possible to work with dental implants. This is also the case if in the past you have been told that it was not possible. If there is a slight to serious loss of jawbone, our dentist-implantologist will opt for short titanium implants. We use these new implants, barely 5-8 mm long, in cases where implants of a more conventional length are not possible. The results provided by short implants are excellent.
Improve your quality of life
Invest in your future; replace your dentures with a full row of permanent teeth fitted on implants.
The jawbone can shrink over the years if you wear a traditional set of dentures. This means that the set of dentures (prosthesis) loses its grip and becomes loose. This is extremely inconvenient when you eat, talk or laugh.
Another disadvantage is that the volume of jawbone continues to shrink faster with a loose set of dentures. This causes deep wrinkles in the corner of the mouth and hollow cheeks. Permanent teeth fitted on implants eliminate the inconveniences of a loose set of dentures for good. Eating, laughing and talking become a pleasure once more.
You obtain a lifelong result.
