What are dental implants?

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots, usually crafted from titanium, that are securely inserted into the jaw to stand in for absent teeth. Once they have integrated with the bone and healed, they offer a robust base for supporting artificial teeth, be it crowns or removable dentures. Implants are not only valued for their natural appearance and efficient functionality but also for their permanence. Unlike traditional dentures that can be taken out, dental implants are a fixed solution, providing consistent support and aiding in the prevention of the bone deterioration often linked with tooth loss.

ARE BONE GRAFTS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF HAVING DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Bone grafting is not always required when someone needs a dental implant. We carry out a full examination to determine if the bone loss is severe enough to require a graft or if it can be avoided with the use of short implants.We talk through the options with you and discuss our findings and recommendations for treatment. If bone grafting is a necessary step, it can make further treatment more successful.

The different types of bone grafting are guided bone augmentation and block grafts.

Guided bone augmentation

This is the most common type of bone graft and is really natural looking. We add material, either synthetic material or animal-derived bone substitutes, around the implant so the final crown blends in with the rest of the teeth.

Block grafts

This is a more radical process. If a lot of bone has been lost from the front of the upper jaw we will relocate bone from the patient to restore it.

We will often look for alternative solutions before resorting to this. When necessary, bone grafting is a very useful procedure. We usually use a CT scanner to assess the bone levels and make a full assessment of the best course of treatment. We explain the process fully to you so you know exactly what the treatment entails and why we have recommended it

Dental Implants QUESTIONS YOU MAY have

FAQ’s

With proper care and regular dental check-ups, dental implants can last a lifetime. The crown or prosthetic tooth attached to the implant might need replacement after 10-15 years due to wear and tear, but the implant itself can last much longer.

While dental implants are an effective solution for many, their suitability depends on individual health conditions, jawbone density, and lifestyle factors. It’s essential to consult with a dentist or oral surgeon to determine if implants are the right option for you.

Dental implants should be treated like natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential. While implants aren’t susceptible to cavities, the surrounding gum and bone can still be affected by poor dental hygiene, leading to complications.

The cost of dental implants varies based on factors like location, the expertise of the dental professional, and the type of implant procedure. It’s best to consult directly with a dental clinic for a detailed estimate.

I can’t thank and praise Andrew and Graeme enough .. a year ago they changed my life around going from someone who couldn’t laugh or smile without covering their mouth and not being able to get to close to people in case my breath was bad.. I was ashamed and embarrassed having not been to a dentist in 35 years. I was petrified from a young age of dentists. I couldn’t even sit in ‘the chair’just to talk about my teeth before I met these two brilliant men. I went somewhere else the previous month before who charged a lot of money,removed all of my teeth and gave me the biggest most badly fitting temporary dentures, i looked ridiculous.. I started to wish I had never had started the process I was devasted. They said then that my gums were too difficult to make dentures for and they couldn’t do anything for me !!!! They did however refer me to The Dental Practice uk and in turn Graeme and Andrew,the best thing they could have done. They instantly made me relaxed and completely confident in what they said they could do, they had me in the palm of their hands..3 weeks later and cheaper than the first dentist’s I had everything they promised the most beautiful delicate dentures that suited my small face.I do use fixadent because of my flat palate and receding gums but I apply at 6.30 am and work split shifts till9.30 pm without once having to re apply. These 2 men are really passionate about what they do and it shows,I have my smile and confidence back and I can’t thank them enough. Sorry it’s taken a year to write the review ! Thank you for everything Lisa

£85 for a check-up which lasts 3 minutes seems rather excessive. No Xrays, despite being told when booking that the check-up included Xrays. I understand that this was after about 6 months since my last check-up (when Xrays were taken), but then, it should be reflected in the price. Disappointed by the extremely rushed approach.
