What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are where small titanium screws are implanted into your jaw bone, and these can be used to hold natural looking crowns in place offering a truly secure, comfortable and long-lasting alternative for those who suffer from missing teeth.
The dental implant replicates the structure of your natural tooth. Over a period, the titanium screws fuse with your natural bone, which helps to hold them in place.
Dental implants can be fitted whatever your age or condition of your natural teeth. The main factors used to consider whether you would be able to have dental implants is your general health, the condition of your gums and your potential for a successful recovery.
Will the fitting hurt?
Implants are normally fitted under a local anaesthetic, so you will not feel any pain during the procedure, although you may experience some discomfort in the days and weeks afterwards. If you are particularly nervous or your case is more complex, then a sedative can be used. Overall, placing an implant is generally easier than removing a tooth.
During the recovery time, a temporary restoration (or full dentures) can be worn if required.
Every patient is unique, and your requirements will be discussed with you before commencement. Long term care is vital, and regular check-ups and other maintenance will be scheduled as required.
Over 95% of implants are successful, and with good levels of oral health and regular long-term care, they can last for 15 years or more.
