What are dental implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants provide a reliable solution for replacing missing teeth, delivering a durable option that closely resembles the appearance, sensation, and functionality of natural teeth.

This treatment aims to not only rejuvenate your smile but also enhance your confidence and overall quality of life.

Components of a Dental Implant:

  • The Implant: A titanium post that serves as a replacement for the tooth root. It is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it integrates with the bone tissue through a process known as osseointegration. This foundation provides strong support for the artificial tooth.

  • The Abutment: A connector placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support the crown. It acts as the link between the implant and the replacement tooth.

  • The Crown: The visible part of the dental implant, usually made of porcelain or ceramic for a natural appearance. It’s custom-made to match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless integration into your smile.

How do I know if dental implants are the right choice for me?

If you’re missing a tooth or teeth, you do have a few different options to choose from.

Partial dentures and bridges are alternatives however dental implants offer several advantages over these traditional tooth replacement options.

Here are a few key benefits:

  • Natural Look and Feel: Designed to feel, look, and function like your natural teeth, dental implants allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

  • Durability and Reliability: With proper care, dental implants can last many years. They are built to provide a permanent solution to tooth loss.

  • Preservation of Bone Structure: Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants stimulate and preserve natural bone growth, helping to maintain your facial structure.

  • Improved Oral Health: Dental implants do not require altering adjacent teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. This means more of your natural teeth are left intact, benefiting your long-term oral health.

Our dental implant process

At Mann St Dental, we’re committed to making the dental implant process as smooth, transparent, and comfortable as possible.

Here’s our step-by-step guide:

Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation.

During this visit, our dental professionals will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health.

This will include the use of advanced imaging techniques to assess the condition of your jawbone and surrounding tissues.

We’ll also discuss your medical history, dental goals, and any concerns you might have.

This session is crucial in determining whether dental implants are the right option for you and for planning your personalised treatment.

Based on the initial consultation, our dentists will use an intraoral scanner to plan the position of the implants, allowing us to tailor the treatment plan to address your specific needs.

This plan outlines the number of implants needed, the location for each implant, and any preparatory procedures such as bone grafting if necessary.

We ensure you’re fully informed and comfortable with the proposed treatment plan before proceeding.

The implant placement is performed under local anaesthesia, ensuring you experience minimal discomfort.

During this procedure, the titanium implant is precisely placed into the jawbone, serving as a new root for the missing tooth.

The abutment and your custom-made crown won’t be attached during this procedure.

You’ll need 3-6 months for your bone to start growing around your new titanium implant to ensure you have a strong base for your new tooth.

Our focus on using the latest technology and techniques ensures this process is as efficient and effective as possible.

After the implant has properly connected itself to the bone, the next step involves attaching the abutment to the implant.

The abutment serves as a connector for the final crown.

After the abutment is in place, a custom-made crown that matches the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth is fitted, completing the restoration.

Complete with a new smile, we’ll provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to care for your dental implant and check-in to ensure everything is functioning as it should.

Dental Implant FAQs

Dental implants can last a lifetime with the right care, including good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups. They are designed to be a long-term, durable solution for missing teeth, often lasting 25 years or more.

The procedure for placing dental implants involves surgery, but patients are typically given local anaesthesia to minimise pain. Discomfort after the procedure is generally mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief.

Dental implants are a safe and effective way to replace missing teeth, with a high success rate. They have been used for many years to restore function and aesthetics to patients’ smiles.

Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth: brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Proper oral hygiene helps ensure the longevity of your implants.
