DENTAL IMPLANTS

This treatment provided at our sister practice, Specialist Dental and Implant Centre.
Widely regarded as the most efficient method of tooth replacement, dental implants are tiny titanium screws that are placed into pre-drilled sockets in the jawbone. When the implant has finished integrating with the bone, a new tooth restoration, such as a dental crown, can be attached to the implant and the tooth will function in much the same way as a natural tooth.

What Does The Procedure Involve?

Initially, a small hole will be drilled into the jawbone, which requires making a small incision in the gum tissue. The implant will then be fixed into the socket and a new restoration can be attached once integration between the implant and bone (usually takes a period of 4 to 6 weeks) is complete and the gum has healed completely. Tooth restorations used in conjunction with implants include crowns, dentures and bridges.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?

Dental implants are highly regarded because they act much like a natural tooth. The chief component of titanium is entirely safe and does not interfere with the gum or tooth tissue. Dental implants help to reduce bone loss, provide exceptional functionality, and anchorage is also guaranteed for dentures, making issues with loose dentures a thing of the past. Aesthetics is vastly improved and the restoration will blend in with the rest of your smile.

What To Expect After The Procedure

After the procedure, it is important to look after your mouth and maintain cleanliness to prevent infection and oral health issues. We provide leaflets and will be on hand to answer any of your questions or queries. A certain degree of soreness is to be expected following the procedure, but painkillers should quickly ease any pain. It is advisable to avoid brushing the area around the wound in the days following treatment, and it is also important to leave the sutures alone to avoid dislodgement.
You should take it easy for a couple of days after the procedure. Avoid strenuous activity, eat soft foods and refrain from smoking, which can otherwise slow down the healing process. Ice packs can be applied if you suffer bruising, but make sure you cover it with a cloth or towel to prevent damage to the gum tissue.

Are Dental Implants Suitable For Everyone?

Though dental implants are a highly effective solution for missing teeth, they are not suitable for everyone. Patients that smoke, have weak bone tissue or existing oral health problems, may be advised to consider other treatment. We can offer information and advice to help you make the right decision.
