If you have a missing tooth or a small number of missing teeth, fitting a single dental implant is a simple, fast and painless solution. You may need to consider dental implants if:
If you have just lost a tooth in the past couple of days or are about to lose a tooth, you may be able to have a dental implant placed immediately. Immediate treatment can save you both time and money and mean less trips to the dentist. In order to be eligible for an immediate implant, however, you must have enough bone to provide adequate support, as well as healthy and infection-free teeth and gums.
An implant is a screw placed into your jawbone to provide a new root for the crown - the replacement tooth. A crown (or cap) looks just like a natural tooth. It’s fixed to the implant and provides you with an aesthetically pleasing and fully functioning replacement tooth.
Having dental implants is a virtually painless procedure! Usually, dental pain is caused by an exposed live nerve on a tooth. With implants, however, the tooth is removed entirely. You may experience some discomfort, but you can rest assured your in safe hands at Wimpole Dental. Our skilled and sensitive dentist will ensure your comfort every step of the way. Your jaw will be numbed before the operation so you won’t feel any pain. You also have the choice of sedation if that's what you would prefer. Typically patients are able to carry out their usual daily activities on the same day they’ve had one or two implants fitted.
Following on from your initial consultation, your dentist will carry out a thorough assessment of your mouth, take X-rays and make impressions to create models. CT scans will also be used to determine if you have enough jawbone to hold the implants in place. You will then be required to come back at a later date for your implant to be placed into your jaw.
If you are lacking in jawbone, you may need bone grafting to build it back up to adequate strength. With this procedure, it can take 4 - 12 months for your jawbone to finally be ready for the implant to be placed.
The cost of dental implants can vary from patient to patient depending on the specificities of each case and the exact treatment needed. You can discuss the details of your treatment and the estimated costs with your dentist. If dental implants are the right treatment for you, we offer 0% finance.
