What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. To do this a post is placed in the jawbone and gives support to a replacement tooth, thus doing the job of the root of a natural tooth. Fixed bridges and dentures can also be supported by implants.
In most cases there are two stages to implant treatment. Firstly, the implant is placed in the jaw. Then, at later date, and after the implant has integrated and healed, the replacement teeth are attached to the implant.
Sometimes it is also possible for temporary teeth to be attached to the implant.
Would implants be right for me?
To help you decide whether dental implants are right for you, you can contact us on 01752 775693 to arrange a consultation where we will be able to go over the different options available to you. We will be happy to answer any queries you may have.
Should you decide to go ahead, a treatment plan will take be prepared
- An implant will be placed in a hole in the jaw with a local anaesthetic .
- The implant is placed in and the gum is stitched allowing it to heal over the implant.
- Over several months the bone will grow around the implant under the gum, holding it firm.
Is there any age limit to have an implant done?
There are no age limit for having implant treatment. As long as you have enough bone for implants and can maintain the implants, then you deserve to have this improved quality of life.
What is the difference between implants and dentures?
As the dental implants are fixed, there is no need to worry about them becoming loose when you socialise with people or avoid certain foods. With these advantages, you will feel more confident and enjoy the better life style you deserve!
When implants are placed where the roots used to be, there is a good chance that the natural shrinking of the bone and facial structure, will stop. It is this shrinking that often gives the typical signs of aging when you lose your teeth.
What should I expect during the implant procedure?
The implant placement procedure is a minor surgical procedure that is similar to many routine dental procedures. We use specific anaesthetic for this kind of procedure just to make sure that the whole process goes smoothly. You will be provided with a postoperative package containing painkillers to ensure comfort afterwards. Comfort and pain relief are our priorities and we make sure you avoid any unnecessary pain or negative experience
How soon can I have my smile back after loosing teeth?
The average treatment time for an implant procedure is just over two months if you are already presented with a gap.
If you need a tooth extracted, then we normally wait 4-8 weeks, before we start the implant procedure, so the gum can heal fully fully prior to the implant process.
If there is a defect or infection present, then a longer healing time might be advisable. Equally if there are no problems in the area, then a shorter treatment time will be acceptable.
The duration of your treatment, the complexities and the details of the sessions involved will be discussed with you during your full implant consultation.
I am interested in Dental Implants. What do I do now?
We usually arrange an initial consultation session. During this session we will talk about your general concerns and give you some ideas about the different implant solutions.There are quite different implant options available with different levels of comfort and price. You can opt for our 0% finance plan if you decide to go ahead with the suggested treatment plan so you can spread the cost.
If you decide to proceed, we carry on with the full implant consultation looking at the foundation for your future implants to see if you are the right candidate for the procedure.
We work very closely with our hygienist and her job is to make sure your mouth is ingood condition prior to the start of the treatment.
If you have already decided to have implant/s done at our practice, then we can proceed to full implant consultation from beginning.
What do I need to do after I had my implant/s done?
On the day you are having your teeth fitted, you will have detailed instruction on how to look after your implants and how you can manage your implant/s.
We arrange an appointment with the hygienist therafter to discuss your needs and any challenges you are facing. The better you can manage the hygiene if your implant/s, the less often you need to see us!
