Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

What are the advantages of implants over other methods of tooth restoration?

The most common alternatives to dental implants are dentures and bridges. Getting a bridge requires attaching false teeth to your existing teeth. This involves filing or modifying the teeth on either side of missing teeth in order to support the bridge, which can have implications in the future. Also, they often require replacement which make them a more costly option over time. Dentures are false teeth attached to a plastic or metal plate which are placed in the mouth and are removable. They are cumbersome, uncomfortable and limit your dietary intake. Also, with time they might wear or become loose fitted, causing slippage and imprecise fit issues. Dental implants are the permanent solution to missing teeth. They are comfortable, effective, aesthetically pleasing, look and behave just like natural teeth, do not impact surrounding teeth and are less costly over the long run.

How do I know if I’m suitable for dental implants?

A person who can undergo tooth extractions or bridgework can undergo dental implant treatment. The location and the amount of bone available in the implant area is normally the major factor to be considered for any case. Normally implants are suitable and the best option for most cases but it’s best to have a consultation with our dentist to check for suitability and ask any questions you might have about the treatment.

How do dental implants look?

They look exactly the same as your natural teeth.

How long does dental implant treatment take?

Your dentist should be able to give you a rough estimate about treatment time after your first consultation. Nowadays, some false teeth are fitted at the same time as implants for some cases. Check with your dentist to see if it’s suitable for you. Normally, the false teeth are fitted around 3-4 months after placing the implant. In some instances it might take longer, due to complexity of the case, but your dentist should be able to let you know about this during your treatment.

Can I get dental implants on NHS?

Dental implants are typically not available through the NHS, as they are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, in some rare cases where the implants are deemed medically necessary, the NHS may cover the cost. It’s best to consult with our dentist and NHS dental services for specific eligibility criteria and options available in your area.

Does dental Implant hurt?

Typically, implant treatment is no more painful than having a tooth extracted. Often, we place implants using a surgical guide that we can create from your CT cone beam scan. This enables us to insert implants through a small punch hole, akin to keyhole surgery. Consequently, the treatment is virtually painless.

What are implants made from?

Implants are made from titanium. Bone has a natural affinity for titanium which enables it to grow around the implant effectively becoming part of your bone.

Can anyone get dental implants?

In general, most healthy individuals with good oral health are suitable candidates for dental implant treatment. However, a comprehensive dental evaluation is necessary to determine if you are an ideal candidate.

Will I be without teeth during the implant process?

Our dentist will provide temporary tooth replacements during the healing period to ensure you don’t go without teeth. These can be removable dentures or temporary crowns.

How long is the recovery period after dental implants?

After undergoing dental implant surgery, the initial recovery period usually spans a few days, during which you may encounter temporary swelling and discomfort. The complete healing and osseointegration process can extend over several months, allowing the implant to firmly integrate with the jawbone.

Can smokers get dental implants?

Although smoking can increase the risk of complications and hinder the healing process, smokers can still get dental implants. However, it is strongly advised to quit smoking or at least reduce smoking to increase the chances of successful implant integration.

Is there an age limit for dental implant treatment?

There is no strict age limit for dental implant treatment. As long as you have good oral health and are suitable for the procedure, dental implants can be considered at any age.

Do I need a bone graft for dental implants?

Not every dental implant case requires a bone graft. It depends on the jawbone’s condition and the specific implantation site. A comprehensive assessment by a dental professional will determine the necessity.

Bridge or dental implant: Which one should I choose?

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, two popular options are dental bridges and dental implants. Both solutions offer their own set of benefits and considerations. The choice between a bridge and a dental implant depends on various factors, including your oral health, budget, and personal preferences. Consulting with a qualified dentist like us is crucial to determine the most suitable option tailored to your individual needs.

Can dental implants replace multiple missing teeth?

Yes, dental implants can replace multiple missing teeth. Implant-supported bridges or dentures are effective solutions for restoring function and aesthetics in cases of several missing teeth.

Can dental implants fail, and what are the common reasons?

While rare, dental implant failure can occur. Common reasons include infection, poor osseointegration, peri-implantitis (gum disease around the implant), or complications during surgery.

Can I get dental implants if I have diabetes?

Diabetic individuals can be candidates for dental implants, but strict blood sugar control is essential. Diabetes management and overall health play a role in the success of the implant procedure.

Can I get dental implants if I grind my teeth?

Teeth grinding (bruxism) can impact dental implants. Our dentist may recommend a nightguard to protect the implants and address the underlying issue of teeth grinding before proceeding with implant surgery.

Can dental implants be placed if I have had jaw surgery before?

Dental implants can be placed after jaw surgery, depending on the specific procedure and its impact on the bone structure. A thorough evaluation by our dentist is necessary.

Do dental implants affect surrounding teeth?

Dental implants are independent structures that do not negatively impact surrounding teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, adjacent teeth remain untouched, preserving their natural structure.

Can dental implants replace molars effectively?

Dental implants are highly effective for replacing molars. Their stability and functionality make them an ideal solution for restoring the chewing capacity of these essential back teeth.

Do dental implants interfere with sinus cavities?

Dental implants in the upper jaw may come close to sinus cavities. Sinus lift procedures can create space for implants, minimising the risk of interference and ensuring proper placement.

How to find a good dentist near me for dental implants?

To find a good dentist near you for dental implants, start by seeking recommendations from friends, family, or your regular dentist. Additionally, online reviews and testimonials can provide valuable insights into the experiences of other patients. Look for dentists with expertise in implantology and those who are accredited by relevant dental organizations. Schedule consultations with potential dentists to discuss your specific needs, treatment plans, and associated costs. During these meetings, assess the dentist’s communication style, transparency, and willingness to address your concerns. Ultimately, a good dentist for dental implants should have a proven track record, make you feel comfortable, and be committed to providing personalised and high-quality care.
