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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Aideen is a brilliant dentist, I have been a patient of hers for over twenty years and completely trust her. The dental work she has carried out is to the highest quality and I have never been disappointed. I can not recommend Aideen and Duke Street Dentists enough.
Recently had my regular Hygenist visit. Always very pleasant staff and thorough Hygenist work done! If a trip to the dentist can be nice, this is it!!
Anxious patient here! Aideen is very empathic and calm and I wouldn't go anywhere else now.
I was very fearful of going to a new dentist, after some dreadful experiences. However after my first visit, I've never looked back. Aideen & Lisa have really helped me conquer my fears, the atmosphere, explanations and planning is by far the best. My purse is a little lighter by my smile brighter, in more ways than one. Thank you !
From the reception staff, to the hygienist and of course the dentist (Aideen), this is a five-star Dental Centre. If you need any dental treatments, they will listen to your concerns and explain what they are going to do and why in detail. There is a lot of care taken to reassure nervous patients and aftercare between appointments is clearly explained. I highly recommend Duke Street Dental Centre.
We really liked the Doctor Soroosh Khavari in this clinic. The doctor has a very professional approach to treatment of children. My daughter is 7 years old, and this was her first tooth treatment in her life. I was very worried about how my daghter would take the injection to the gum, but the Doctor gave the injection very carefully and painlessly. The doctor qualitatively put a filling in the tooth, and gave a lot of recommendations about teeth. It was a great experience!
I used Duke Street Dental for the last 10 years. So does my father who has had many tooth related accidents. Always a lovely welcome at reception followed by knowledge and careful hygienist's or Dentists ready to brighten my day. Highly recommend!
Fantastic staff and service all round Cannot rate highly enough and would not hesitate to recommend 👍
