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.
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.

Highly 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.
I 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!
Firstly 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.
This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. 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.
Best 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!
After lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.
