Why do i need implant care?
Dental Implants are a Unique solution which can permanently restore your smile if you are missing one or more teeth. Implants feel completely natural, unlike the feeling of denture wearing. Implants help to give people back the confidence to smile and eat confidently once again.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a titanium rod that is gently placed directly into the jawbone to act as an anchor to support one or more crowns or a denture. Each implant can usually be used to support up to two false teeth.
One major advantage of an implant is that it avoids the need to drill down the teeth either side of the ‘’gap” which would normally be necessary in preparation of a conventional bridge.
Implants can also be used as anchors to improve the stability and retention of loose dentures. Patients find great improvements during speech and eating, increased comfort and renewed confidence.
Who can have implants?
We will carry out a thorough examination taking appropriate x-rays to see if you are suitable for implant treatment. It can be dependent on the condition of the bone in the area of the planned implants. Occasionally there is not enough bone or it is not healthy enough, and it may not be possible to proceed without additional treatment.
What does the treatment involve?
Placing of the implants is carried out at the centre. It involves a simple operation which is usually carried out under local anaesthetic. The after effects are similar to having a tooth extracted i.e. you may feel mild discomfort due to the normal healing processes.
How long does this treatment take?
The implant must be allowed to bond (integrate) with the bone. This will take approximately three months depending on the individual case. During this time it is possible to make a temporary replacement for your missing teeth. Once healing and integration have occurred the permanent replacement is made and fitted.
Can implants be placed any quicker
Yes they can. In some circumstances, implants can be placed within a day or temporary crowns made on the same day as the implant is placed. This will be discussed at your consultation.
How long will implants last?
When cared for and maintained properly implants once placed and fused with the bone are there for life. The bridge or denture may need to be adjusted or replaced after a period of time.
