Dental Implants in Wolverhampton

Are you looking for a dental implant dentist or dental implants in Wolverhampton? Why do you want dental implants? Do you know if dental implants are right for you? What do you know about dental implants?

Dental implants are tiny titanium screws. They replace the missing roots teeth and offer support and retention for dental crowns, bridges or dentures. They screw into the bone firmly and as a result, become one with you. I often describe their function as similar to raw-plugs. You need a solid wall in which to place raw-plugs. Similarly, with implants, you need solid bone.

Dental Implants in Wolverhampton – What is possible?

Dental implants have provided life changing results for many patients. Therefore, they are a popular treatment item with our patients.

Single Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants in Wolverhampton

You may have lost a single tooth for lots of reasons. It may have fractured or decayed. You may have lost through trauma. You may even have lost through gum disease. However, a missing tooth at the front of the mouth can be difficult to mask and treat. Patients don’t like single tooth dentures. Also, bridges can be destructive and damaging to adjacent teeth. Therefore, a single tooth implant restoration is one of the most popular treatments provided at Rock Dental. A single tooth implant replaces the missing root of the tooth. Then crown construction takes place to fit over the top. Resulting in a natural looking restoration, which doesn’t involve damaging or treating any other teeth.

Replacement of some missing teeth with Dental Implants in Wolverhampton

Dental implants can replace a larger span of missing teeth. However, you don’t need one implant per missing tooth. For instance, if you have three missing teeth, often, we need only two implants. A three-unit bridge will restore the two implants.

Replacement of a whole arch of missing teeth with Dental Implants in Wolverhampton

If you have no teeth in the upper or lower arch, then implants can support and retain a full arch dental prosthesis. As a result, this could be a full arch bridge, or even a denture.

What causes dental implants to fail?

For a dental implant to work the host (i.e. you) must provide a suitable environment. The implant is a foreign body – the same as any medical implant. If the environment is not as suitable, then, as a result, the implant will fail or not work as intended. Nobody wants to waste money. If your implants fail, that could be a significant loss. Therefore, we always take steps to minimise the risk of failure.

Unfortunately, lots of things can lead to implant failure.

Periodontal (gum) disease

Active gum disease, and dental implants don’t mix well. If the implant becomes infected, then a condition known as peri-implantitis can set in. As a result, this destroys the bone around the implant causing dental implant failure. Its important that any gum disease is treated before implants are planned. You must demonstrate a period of periodontal health and stability before considering implants.

Poor oral hygiene

Not looking after your teeth puts you in a higher risk category for dental implant treatments. It is super important that you clean around your teeth and implants to minimise the risk of any gum disease setting in.

Smoking

Smoking leads to lots of illnesses and dental issues. In particular, it can affect the healing response of dental surgical procedures. Although lots of smokers have successfully been treated with dental implants, it is definitely not ideal.

Inexperienced dentist

It’s always a good idea to see a dentist who has experience of dental implants. Consequently, any complications can be handled appropriately. Sometimes its more important for the dentist to avoid treatment. Only experienced dentists will be able to reliably identify potential risks and advise you of this.
