About Dental Implants Wolverhampton

Today, if you lose one or more teeth, you now have options beyond bridges and dentures. One of those options is dental implants.

Dental Implants look and feel much better than bridges and dentures, but also, provide an increased force for biting and chewing. Dental implants are not only an option for patients who lose one tooth. Patients who are missing most, if not all their teeth will benefit too.

Dental Implants are small titanium screws which act like raw-plugs, fixed into the jawbone. These implants act like the root of a natural tooth and can anchor natural-looking false teeth. The bone grows naturally around the dental implant, providing a solid platform for crowns, bridges and dentures.

We provide you with a smile that not only looks completely natural but one that feels and functions more like your own teeth.

Dental implants are the gold standard solution for replacing teeth. They provide a natural and aesthetic fixed alternative to bridges and dentures.

Meticulous Planning of Dental Implants Wolverhampton

Measure twice and cut once. Since dental implant treatment involves surgery, we spend significant time planning. We use special diagnostic procedures such as X-rays and CT Scans to accurately plan and guide us before any surgery is undertaken. We spend the necessary time to inform you of all the details, including the risks, regarding dental implant surgery.

The trend towards Dental Implants Wolverhampton

Teeth implants have grown in popularity since they were first placed in Europe in the mid-1960s. Patients found that teeth implants had many advantages over traditional treatments. Implants have consequently become an integral part of restorative dentistry.

Why choose Rock House Dental Practice for Dental Implants Wolverhampton?

Award-winning and experienced; Dr Anoup Nandra and the team, have trained with some of the world's leading Implantologists. Each case is individually planned and we aim for more than one surgeon to be present during the surgery. Our nurses are fully trained and certified. This team approach works incredibly well and therefore, proves the theory that two brains are better than one!

Are dental implants safe and how long will they last?

Implants are a well-established, tried-and-tested treatment. Providing you adhere to proper at-home dental care and regular dental visits, your dental implants should last a significant time. Smokers may have some problems and hence, we ask that you stop smoking before your treatment. Smoking and dental implants don't mix well. Smoking can hamper healing of the gums and dental surgery. It also increases the risk of dental implant failure.

I only have a few missing teeth. Can I still have dental implants?

Yes. You can have any number of teeth replaced with implants. Solutions are available to restore one single tooth to a complete set using bridges and dentures.

Can dental implants always replace missing teeth?

Rarely, dental implants will not be an appropriate solution. It depends on the state of the bone in your jaw and your general health. Neither we nor our patients like implant failures and hence, we select our patients carefully. Our team undertake a number of special tests to your suitability for the procedure. If we're not convinced its right for you, we won't provide the treatment.

Do dental implants hurt?

Having implant surgery can be simple or complex depending on the case. Placing the implants requires a small operation. We use a local anaesthetic with or without sedation to numb you. You will not feel any pain during the surgery. However, as you have had a surgical procedure, it is only natural to expect some discomfort during the week following the surgery.

How long does dental implants treatment take?

This depends on the individual case. You will receive a personalised treatment plan with timeline before the treatment begins. The implants need to fuse (integrate) with the bone after placement. This is a normal healing process and can take at least 3 months in the lower jaw and 6 months in the upper jaw. Usually, the final restoration (the permanent teeth) is 3 - 6 months after the implant surgery.

Don't worry - in the healing phase, we will not leave you without a suitable temporary result. We would not want you walking around without any teeth! We provide different temporary solutions, e.g. a denture, bridge or gum shield.

If I had gum disease when I had my own teeth, will I get it with the teeth attached to the dental implants?

Yes, implants need maintenance as do natural teeth. If you do not care for them well enough problems can arise. If you keep them clean and don't smoke, then you should not have any problems. We will expect you to regularly visit our dental hygienists for maintenance.

Can I take the teeth out?

Most artificial teeth attached to implants screw into place, therefore removable by your dentist only. Implant retained dentures are removable so that you can take them out to clean.

Do I have a dental implant fixture for each missing tooth?

No, unless it is to replace only one a single tooth gap. The number of implants depends on each individual case. Bridges and dentures do not need an implant per tooth, in fact, a full arch may only need four implants!

What happens if the dental implant does not bond (integrate) with the bone?

This happens in approximately 1 out of 20 implants placed worldwide. If the dental implant becomes loose during the healing period or just after, then it is easily removed and healing takes place in the normal way. Once the jaw has healed, a replacement implant goes into the same site, or we can opt for an alternative plan.

How much are dental implants?

The most commonly asked questions are "How much are dental implants? or "Are Dental Implants NHS?" We don't want the cost of dental implants to become a barrier to the perfect treatment for you. The cost of dental implants may only slightly exceed the cost of more conventional treatment with crowns and bridges. We offer the option for you to spread the cost of dental implants.

Our patients believe that the advantages outweigh the cost. An implant to replace a single tooth avoids the need to cut down the teeth either side for crowns to support a bridge. Normal dentures often mean you can't eat or speak well, due to the dentures moving about. These problems disappear due to having increased support and retention from Dental Implants
