There is a great belief that dental implants are solely used for cosmetic reasons however nowadays dental implants are mainly used for more clinical reasons such as giving the patient back their ability to be able to chew food correctly or correcting misalignment of their existing teeth. Dental implants have opened doors in dentistry for both the dental consultant and patient alike as the dentist can now offer dental implants as a great way to replace a missing tooth, teeth or gap as they look and function as the patients natural teeth and do not impact on the patients other teeth as a denture or bridge may do.
If you are considering having dental implants but are not quite sure what dental implants are or what the dental implant procedures entails we at the Marylebone Implant Centre advise all our patients to do their research and ensure that they have all the relevant information required so they can make an informed decision comfortably which will be correct for them. To assist you in your research we have compiled below some helpful information guides regarding the dental implant procedures and the benefits of dental implants to patients.
Most people of adult ages are suitable candidates for dental implants. Before any treatment can be commenced all patients are required to have an initial consultation with an implant consultant so the patient can be fully assessed and to ensure that the patient has good oral health and have adequate bone levels. A CT Scan is also required. This will enable the implant consultant to take exact measurements and to discuss with and give the patient a complete and precise treatment plan. Here at the Marylebone Implant Centre we offer a Free of Charge No Obligation Consultation and Treatment Planning, Call 020 34 34 29 34 today for further information.
Dental implant treatment normally takes approximately 3-4 visits with an experienced expert implantologist over a period of 3-6 months from beginning to completion of the dental implant treatment.
If your dental implant treatment is straightforward you are most likely to follow the following dental treatment stages:
The dental implant placement is a minor surgical procedure that will be performed under sterile clinical conditions in an experienced professional clinic performed by (in the UK) a GDC registered dental surgeon and is usually carried out under local anaesthesia however if the patient is very nervous there are other sedative options open to them such as a prescribed medication or IV Sedation. For those patients who may require bone augmentation in most occasions this can be placed at the same time of the dental implant placement.
The dental implants are then left in situ for approximately 3-6 months for the integration period. This is the healing period when the dental implants will fuse and integrate with the patient’s bone. At this time the patient may or may not choose to wear a temporary restoration such as a crown, bridge or denture, this is discussed in detail between the implantologist and the patient at the initial appointment stage and will be part of the complete and precise agreed treatment plan. Patients may decide as it is just a single tooth and it is near the anterior of their mouth that they would prefer to leave it without having a temporary restoration which will also keep the financial costs down.
The final stage of the dental implant procedure is the restorative phase and depending on what type of restoration the patient is having this can consist of 2-3 appointments over a period of 2-4 weeks. After the 3 months integration period and once the dental implants have integrated and healed with the patient’s bone the implantologist can then prepare, construct and fit the patient’s new definitive teeth.
