What is a dental implant?

In basic terms, dental implants are a titanium screw used as a replacement for the root part of your missing tooth. This implant will then be placed in either upper or lower jawbone and is allowed healing time to bond together with the bone and serve like an anchor for your replacement tooth. A new crown is attached to the implant to make a full tooth.

Implants are generally used to replace either one tooth or several missing teeth. Read further to know about different kinds of implants offered at the clinic. By opting for our implant-supported replacement, your teeth will feel, look and function like the natural teeth. Dental implants are proven to be great restorative option together with long clinical records of prognosis.

It restores the integrity of your facial structure and improves the inconvenience caused due to tooth loss.

The Different Types of Dental Implants

There are many different types of dental implants, and each option has been developed to address a specific issue. Your dentist will discuss the different options available and advise on the right procedure for your situation, but some of the most common treatments include:

Crown dental implants – These devices are used to replace individual teeth. They comprise a screw-like base that attaches to the underlying bone structure and acts like the tooth’s root. A replica tooth, called the crown, is attached to this piece.

Bridge dental implants – Similar to crown dental implants, these are used to replace multiple teeth.

Overdentures – As opposed to standard dentures, which are easily removable, overdentures are more permanent fixtures that are secured to the jaw using dental implants.

Bone grafting – If there has been bone loss, it may be necessary to build the bone back up before placing dental implants. Depending on your situation, this can be done with your own bone or processed materials.

Sinus lift surgery – In some cases, implants cannot be placed because there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to the jaw. In these situations, a sinus lift may be carried out before the implants can be placed.

Soft tissue grafting – A receding gum line is common for those suffering from gum disease, but if the gums have receded too far, the root of your tooth could become exposed, causing pain and tooth sensitivity. Plus, many people do not like the way their recessed gums look. The problem can be corrected, however, with soft tissue grafting.

Benefits of choosing implants procedure

  • They are generally meant to last for a long time in comparison to other options such as dental bridges and dentures.
  • They might slow down the amount of bone loss.
  • They actually don’t depend on your surrounding teeth for retention as bridges do.
  • They can be cleaned easily when compared to dental bridges.
  • The security of implant supported prothesis will assist greatly with your confidence and overall quality of life.

Step by Step Dental Implant Procedure at the clinic

Dental implants treatment at our clinic begins with evaluating the quality of your jawbone. You need to have sufficient jawbone mass for holding metal screw in its proper place. Our dentists examine your X-rays and CBCT scans when making a proper assessment. If you are a suitable candidate for implant treatment, then we will start planning and ordering the correct size implants and parts for you. The procedure is generally broken down in three steps and they are the following:

Step 1: Thorough planning

By conducting thorough evaluation and proper planning, you will be able to know the actual positioning of the anatomy and assess the levels, density and shape.

The implant can be placed under local anaesthetic and when the treatment requires placing several implants, then IV Sedation is considered to be a great option since it is a lengthy procedure. Sedation means you can remain conscious, relaxed and might not have any recollection of the entire procedure.

Step 2: About the surgery

When the surgery is being done, a small flap of gum will be raised for preparing the bone. After this, the titanium implant will be screwed within the bone which will then be covered by the gum that is stitched over the implant. These screws are usually found in various shapes and sizes, and our surgeon can choose the right size for the replacement of missing teeth. If there are improper bone levels, then bone grafting or sinus lift process might be required before placing an implant to add more.bone to the area.

Step 3: The Restoration Stage

It might require almost 3 to 6 months for the screw to fix completely into the jaw so that you are fitted with a temporary and false tooth at the time of healing. After it is healed, we will attach the permanent replacement tooth.

Aftercare of tooth implant

You should take proper care of implants like you would do for your natural teeth. It is necessary to follow good oral health and hygiene habits like brushing two times in a day and flossing daily for your clean and healthy mouth. You should see your dentist for routine check-ups so that the implants stay in good condition for a long time.

Cost for dental implants

The cost of our Implants Package begins from £2500 only. The package will consist of X-rays, routine check-ups, placement, abutment and crown.

Dental Implant Protocol

The precise procedure for a dental implant will vary, depending on the type of work that needs to be done. In most cases, you will need to visit your dentist a few times before the surgery for examinations and various preparatory work.

After a dental implant procedure, patients need to be careful to only have cold drinks and try not to eat until after the anaesthetic has worn off. Hot drinks and food should be avoided for the first day after the implant surgery, and you should try to not ‘swill’ liquids over the surgical site.

While the dental implant will feel foreign in your mouth, it’s also important to leave it alone as much as possible – this will help to ensure the healing process goes smoothly – so avoid touching the implant or the stitches with your fingers or tongue.

reviews-star.pngHighly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.

reviews-star.pngI have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.

My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.

I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.

Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!

reviews-star.pngFirstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.

I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.

The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!

Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.

Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.

reviews-star.pngBest dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!
