Are you missing one or more teeth? Or do you have difficulty eating certain foods or speaking clearly due to tooth loss? Do you suffer from the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures? If so dental implants might be the solution for you. Tooth replacement through dental implants is one of the best and most natural-looking options for people wanting to improve their appearance and fill the gaps left by missing teeth.
A dental implant consists of a substitute tooth root made from titanium, which is placed into the space your previous tooth root occupied. A natural, tooth-coloured crown is then fitted to the dental implant. Implants can also be used to stabilise a loose denture to stop it from slipping or supporting a bridge.
The greatest benefit of dental implants is that they feel comfortable, natural and secure – you’ll find you can eat anything you want. Implants also prevent the jaws from shrinking, which helps you maintain a younger-looking face. We offer a full range of implant treatments from the replacement of a single missing tooth to more complex treatment involving bone-grafting, sinus lifts and replacing a full arch of missing teeth.
This implant consultation is a 30-minute appointment that gives you a chance to meet our experienced implant dentist and so he can assess the mouth. You can ask any questions you might have about dental implants, the procedure and the cost. We may also ask you to have a quick x-ray / scan while you are with us to provide more information.
When the Implant dentist carries out a thorough assessment of your teeth, mouth and gums, they will create an accurate treatment plan and timeline for you to follow. It is not unusual for patients to need a couple of dental hygiene appointments before having dental implants. Your mouth must be clean, and your gums cannot have any sign of gum disease before having treatment.
The implant dentist then can give you an accurate quote and explained the process in more detail.
You can choose to have routine local anaesthetic or be sedated when having the treatment. The procedure will be pain free and we make sure you are comfortable before we begin.
After the implant dentist is happy with the implant after several weeks/months, you will have several appointments arranged to have your implant crown fitted. Scans or impressions may be taken to be sent to a high tech lab to get your bespoke crown made.
Your new implant crown will match your other teeth in both shape and size and will look and feel like a natural healthy tooth. This crown will be designed to take in consideration of your bite and functionally needs. The fitting of the crown is pain-free and does not require any further anaesthetic.
You will have several review appointments to make sure you are happy with the treatment and that the implant dentist is happy with the outcome. You will be showed how to care and look after your implant crown to allow for a seamless transition.
Eat…..drink and smile with confidence. Remember your regular hygiene appointments.
