WHAT ARE IMPLANTS?

If you’re missing one tooth, multiple teeth or even all of your teeth, implants may well be for you.

A dental implant is a small screw made of titanium, which bonds with the jaw to provide a stable foundation for supporting replacement teeth. A dental implant is a substitute for a natural root.

It is the ideal way of replacing lost teeth, both for appearance and chewing, as once the implant has bonded, it gives a very strong base on which to place the replacement teeth.

Why we use Straumann Implants

Long recognised as one of the leading providers of dental implants, Straumann’s success is built on over 20 years of clinical research

“Having recently had implant treatment at your practice I would like to say how pleased I am with the result, fantastic, a great result for very little discomfort.” SL - Dental Implant Patient

“My implant treatment was much less painful than having a filling and as a result of excellent preparation, I knew what to expect. Tony described the treatment in detail and followed that up with a 4 page letter. The procedure took less than an hour and I was able to go to my spanish class later that afternoon. I now wait with impatience the healing process to be complete and the fitting of the actual tooth” Christine W - Dental Implant Patient

PATIENT JOURNEY

Dental Implants Leamington Spa

Initial Consultation

At your first, free-of-charge visit, our implant dentist, Dr Tony Stacey, will talk to you about implants and answer any questions you may have. He will then assess your suitability for implant treatment.

There are very few reasons why implants cannot be provided for a particular person, as long as you are generally fit and well.

It may be useful to take some initial x-rays at this appointment, to see the amount of bone present where teeth are missing.

Treatment plan

Following your assessment, a personalised treatment plan will be put together and posted to you, giving a breakdown of costs, and a full description and timetable for your implant work.

You will be encouraged to ask any questions you may have, at any time, and only when you are happy with the plan will we ask for your written consent to start the treatment.

Placing the implants

Depending on the position and numbers of implants needed, visits to place the implants will be made. These appointments will be around an hour for one or two implants, longer if more are to be placed.

.

Making the new teeth

Most implants are ready to support the new teeth after a few weeks; it is then that impressions (moulds) of the implants are taken, so the dental technician can construct the new teeth, which will then be fitted approximately two weeks later.

Follow up

The new teeth, and the implants supporting them, will require the same care and maintenance as your natural teeth. We will  ask you to return on a regular basis so that we can check your teeth.

Our dental hygienist can help you keep the gums surrounding your implants in a healthy condition.

Joy’s Dental Implant Story

 

_r2_c2Joy is a 39 year old lady who came to see me wearing a plastic denture that was replacing a missing upper front tooth. This tooth was lost over 20 years ago and she desperately wanted to get rid of the denture.

After her initial complimentary consultation with me, my assessment was that she was a perfect candidate for replacing this missing tooth and the old denture currently in it’s place with an implant and crown.

The treatment took place after careful planning and over 3 appointments, and the final crown was fitted after further planning and consultations with the dental technician.  I knew the appearance of Joy’s smile was obviously important to her and she decided to also crown the next tooth, which was very dark.

The final appointment, when both crowns were fitted, meant that Joy could finally throw away her old denture. As her following testimonial shows, Joy was delighted that the whole process was relatively simple, painless and she delighted with the final appearance.

How long should my implants last?

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly are dental implants?

A dental implant is a small screw made of titanium, which bonds with the jaw to provide a stable foundation for supporting replacement teeth. A dental implant is a substitute for a natural root.

Do I qualify to have dental implants?

If you have good general health then they will certainly work for you, as long as you have a sufficient amount of good quality bone and good oral hygiene.

Even if you’ve lost a significant amount of bone in your jaws, you may still qualify as a candidate for dental implants, as there are techniques available to augment the bone you have.

Is the procedure painful?

Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth, or many missing teeth. The procedure is usually performed in the dental surgery under local anaesthesia, so there is no pain involved in placing implants.

You may experience some minor swelling, discomfort and occasionally bruising for a few days afterwards. Simple painkillers will alleviate this pain.
