Implant treatment options

If you have missing teeth, then the most long-lasting, effective and natural looking replacement is undoubtedly a single dental implant. Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically fitted to your jawbone. Because these posts fuse to the bone itself, they provide a solid artificial ‘root’ for a prosthetic tooth.

Once in place, these replacement teeth will neither slip nor shift – they are as strong as a natural tooth and have the potential to last a lifetime. Activities such as eating and speaking will become simple once again. They can also be perfectly shape- and colour-matched to blend in with your surrounding teeth. No one will be able to spot – even up-close and personal! – that you’ve had a restoration.

Common Implant Questions

Does it hurt?

The dental implants treatment procedure involves drilling into the part of your jawbone where your tooth is missing, is and placing a titanium screw, which forms the artificial root. This may sound like it is destined to hurt, but the team at Harwood Dental Practice always use a local anaesthetic to perform this part of the treatment.

Are dental implants safe?

Fortunately, there are very rarely problems associated with dental implants. They have a success rate of 98% and, with proper care, can last many years. A few of the problems that can sometimes occur with dental implants are: Peri – implantitis – this is the destructive inflammatory process affecting the soft and hard tissues surrounding dental implants, and is similar to periodontitis which occurs around natural health. The best way to prevent peri-implantitis is to maintain good oral health care regime by visiting the dental hygienist regularly after the implants have been placed. You should avoid smoking as this can increase the risk of developing peri-implantitis. Pain after the implants have been placed – this is normally controlled by taking over the counter painkillers for one to two weeks after a dental implant is placed and is generally part of the healing process. However, if the pain continues and becomes severe, then please contact us immediately as there may be an underlying problem causing the pain. Discomfort after implant placement is normal – excessive pain is not.

How long will dental implants last?

If you keep your mouth healthy, implant roots (the metal part) should last as long as your natural teeth. They need caring for just as natural teeth do. The crowns or bridges supported by the implants can last a decade or more.
