Dental Implants which can work for you

Dental implants

Dental Implants are a relatively new dental procedure that is now sometimes used above other procedures such as Dental Bridges or Crowns. Dental Implants have the additional benefit, similarly to Dental Bridges, that multiple damaged teeth can be replaced with one procedure. Unlike some of the other methods of replacing damaged teeth the fitting of a Dental Implant is more invasive, going deeper than the tooth base.

What does the Dental Implant procedure consist of?
According to the NHS website; “To fit an implant, titanium screws are drilled into the jaw bone to support a crown, bridge or denture”. With parts being made specifically for your mouth – meaning that it may take a considerable amount of time to make prior to your first dental procedure appointment.

Conversely, Clip-In Veneers can be fitted easily at home after taking dental impressions yourself – taking all of the stress out of the situation.

What do Dental Implants cost?
Dental Implants vary greatly from other tooth loss procedures and perhaps the largest factor is in the cost. Unlike other operations for tooth loss, which are typically a Band 3 level procedure, a Dental Implant is usually only available privately and is especially expensive.

Dentures are often used rather than Dental Implants from an NHS perspective, with Dental Implants used in the rare case that Dentures aren’t suitable. Search our range of

What about Hygiene?
Like almost all procedures for teeth replacement the likelihood of infection is there, of course this is also a factor with your teeth normally. Unlike with normal teeth, plaque build-up on your dental implant can cause irritation of the gum leading to an infection called Peri-implantitis, with higher risk to smokers and diabetics. The importance of hygiene after a dental implant procedure can not be overstated and you would be best regularly seeing a dental hygienist and perhaps altering your lifestyle choices.
