Dental Implants

Searching for the best Dental Implants Slough based? Continue reading to find out more... A dental implant is now a routine procedure for replacing missing teeth. Usually made of titanium and inserted directly into the jawbone, an implant is an artificial replacement root which can provide a base for a false tooth or fixed denture. They are invaluable for restoring a smile, but also play an important role in preventing bone loss in the jawbone and supporting facial structure following a tooth extraction. Using a dental implant to fix a crown or denture in place can increase your confidence and provide a more permanent solution to and remove the anxieties sometimes experienced by wearers of unfixed dentures in eating, talking and laughing.
It can take a number of appointments to complete a dental implant, sometimes over a course of between three to nine months. It is very individual, and your dentist will devise the best schedule to give your implants the best success of being secure and lasting for as long as possible. The implant itself can be fitted under local anaesthesia, which can take about 30 minutes for a single implant, longer for multiple ones. Once the implant is fitted, the surrounding bone will gradually build up around the implant and secure it, which can take between 6 weeks and 6 months. Whilst treatment time can seem lengthy, the investment is well worth it: once an implant is in place, the structure looks and behaves like a normal tooth, with nobody able to tell the difference between the real and artificial teeth.

As with any invasive dental surgery, patients may experience swelling and bruising in the gums and face for up to 48 hours. There may be minor bleeding in the day following insertion of the implant, and some pain and discomfort for up to two weeks. This can be treated with over the counter painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol. Immediately after the surgery, it may take a couple of hours for feeling to return to the mouth after a local anaesthetic and care should be taken not to bite the tongue or cheek, and to avoid hot food and drinks.

Very rare side effects can include infection, nerve damage or sinus problems, but correct preparation and after-care significantly reduces the likelihood of this.

No, it should not hurt. You will be given a local anaesthetic prior to any work starting in your mouth. After the surgery, you may experience some discomfort as detailed above.

The implant itself should last a lifetime, and the crown can last 10 – 15 years with normal wear, even longer with excellent hygiene and care.
