The Benefits of Dental Implants

Firstly, they are low maintenance and last a long time providing you look after them like you would your own teeth.

They don’t affect your other teeth, as the procedure involves no shaving, cutting down, or risks to surrounding teeth.

They prevent bone loss, as they stimulate your jawbone so the shape of your mouth doesn’t change.

Other options like crowns, bridges, and dentures are good in the short term, but do nothing to don’t help the jawbone.

Dentures move about when eating and drinking but implants don’t as they’re anchored to the bone.

So how do Dental Implants work?


The base of dental implants is putting titanium posts into the jawbone. The posts anchor replacement teeth, allowing the implant to fix into the jaw like a natural tooth. The porcelain teeth blend seamlessly into the rest of your teeth and are virtually unnoticeable. The method can replace teeth lost due to disease or trauma and can include both single teeth and whole dentures.

At your first consultation, your dentist will evaluate your teeth and come up with a firm treatment plan. This involves making sure you have no health conditions that could stop surgery. Your dentist will diagnose you using a CT scan and a dental x-ray to come up with a minimal risk plan. Some patients might need additional treatments such as bone expansion, bone graft or sinus lift as part of their implant procedure.

Preparation

At your first consultation, your dentist will evaluate your teeth and come up with a firm treatment plan. This involves making sure you have no health conditions that could stop surgery. Your dentist will diagnose you using a CT scan and a dental x-ray to come up with a minimal risk plan. Some patients might need additional treatments such as bone expansion, bone graft or sinus lift as part of their implant procedure.

Procedure

Getting a dental implant is split into two stages. The first of which involves a dentist placing an implant post into the jaw with the patient under local anaesthetic. The post integrates with the jawbone, as new bone cells grow on and around the post. This usually needs 3-8 months to heal, and become bonded.

The second stage occurs after the healing period. A dentist exposes the implant and evaluates it to check that it has locked into the jawbone successfully. If it hasn’t, the dentist may need to remove it, change it or place it in a different area. If everything is fine, a healing cap is placed to shape the surrounding gum tissue to accept the new crown or bridge. Then the dentist places an abutment into the implant, which then holds the crown, bridge or denture in position. Finally, your new teeth are constructed.

Aftercare

After the operation, you will need an adult accompaniment to drive you home as you may still have sedative in your system. It is necessary to take it easy for a day or two afterward, and not operate any machinery. You can take pain medication to help with any temporary soreness. Your dentist may ask you to come back a few weeks after the procedure to check your new dental implants and modify to your new smile if necessary.

Cost

The treatment only costs a little more than conventional dental treatments like crowns or bridges, but it is more cost effective long term. Some dentists also offer finance options to spread out the cost of treatment, to make it more affordable.

FAQ's

Your questions - answered.

Dental implant treatment is extremely well established and safe. They provide a long-lasting solution, provided you care for them, maintain them well and go to follow up appointments.

You are most likely suitable for dental implants, whether you need one replacement tooth, a few or a whole set. Even patients with a history of gum disease are suitable, but there is a small chance of a repeat issue if wearer doesn’t care for the implants properly. Dentists do not recommend smoking with dental implants.

Placing the implant tends to be easier and less painful than taking a tooth out. Usually, patients only require a local anaesthetic during the treatment, but there may be some temporary discomfort after the surgery.

New developments mean that some teeth are now fitted at the same time as the initial posts, called immediate implants. Usually, the process takes 3-4 months, though this can be longer depending on how your mouth heals.

The amount of sessions needed massively depends on the type of treatment and the severity of scarring. Results can be seen after just one laser resurfacing, but a course of between 2-6 skin peels or micro-needling is recommended.

Dental implants are a permanent solution. Only your dentist can fit or remove your implant unless you have special removable dentures with the ability to take them out for cleaning.

The treatment only costs a little more than conventional dental treatments like crowns or bridges, but it is more cost effective long term. Some dentists also offer finance options to spread out the cost of treatment, to make it more affordable.
