OVERVIEW

DENTAL IMPLANTS

When a tooth is lost, it can have a massive impact on your appearance and the function of your remaining teeth. Missing teeth can cause many issues such as gaps in your smile, drifting and movement of other teeth, and strain on your remaining teeth.

A dental implant is a tiny titanium screw which is surgically placed into the jaw bone and effectively acts as the root of a new tooth. It is buried within the gum and is not visible. It is restored with a crown, but can also form part of a bridge or be used to hold a denture in place more securely. Dental implants are provided at our clinic in Loughborough by our dental implant specialist, Dr Ravi Chandarana.

The entire process can take anywhere from eight weeks to six months, depending on the treatment plan, number of implants and number of missing teeth being replaced.

TREATMENT JOURNEY

QUESTIONS ABOUT

THIS TREATMENT

As with any surgery, following dental implant placement, some tenderness and discomfort are to be expected. This is usually well managed with painkillers. The area is completely numbed during the procedure itself to make it as comfortable as possible.

Dental implants rely on good bone strength and condition, however this is often not the case when patients present to us. In these cases, a bone graft may be required where artificial bone is placed into the jaw to allow the implant to integrate successfully. Some patients require a procedure called a sinus lift, click here for more information .

  • Xenograft – Bone from another species, usually from Bovine
  • Allograft – bone from the same species, usually a cadaver
  • Autograft – bone from the same patient from another site
  • Block bone – Where more bone is required we use blocks of bone, usually from cadavers of the same species, this will require 2 surgical events.
There are always alternative options to replace missing teeth. These include leaving the gap as it is, bridges or dentures.
