Dental Implants from ConfiDental Clinic

Teeth can be lost for a number of reasons, including decay, trauma, infection, or gum disease, and this loss can result in a whole host of problems, as well as impacting your natural smile. Dental implants offer one of the most effective and long-lasting ways to replace one or more missing teeth, providing a fixed alternative to removable dentures.

At ConfiDental Clinic, we recommend Dental Implants to replace missing teeth, as the treatment has both aesthetic and functional benefits for our patients. To learn more about Dental Implants and if this is a treatment that you are considering, get in touch with us today.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to act just like tooth roots. When expertly used, Dental Implants deliver a highly reliable treatment which provides a firm foundation for a crown or bridge. Titanium is also a durable metal that is very well tolerated by the body, and these cylindrical posts will eventually fuse with the bone.

A false tooth (a dental crown) which matches the colour and shape of your existing teeth is then fitted to the top of the implant, leaving you with a fixed solution and a natural-looking smile.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are increasingly becoming the favoured solution for missing teeth, offering a range of benefits for people’s natural smile, ranging from aesthetic to functional. For instance:

  • Unlike ill-fitting dentures, which can have a tendency to move around uncomfortably in your mouth, Implants stay firmly in place.
  • Implants help protect the jawbone by keeping it stimulated, and they prevent existing teeth from moving around.
  • Implants eliminate the speaking and chewing problems that may be caused by missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures.
  • Implants can provide a significant boost to your confidence by restoring your smile.

Dental Implants Procedure

At ConfiDental Clinic, our patients are our top priority, which is why each case first needs to be fully assessed and planned before placing any Dental Implants. This is to ensure the treatment is most appropriate for you and your teeth.

Assessment

The first appointment will be a free consultation and assessment, where there will be a detailed discussion about the treatment.

In the assessment, we will be checking your teeth and bone and bone quality to ensure there is sufficient density to hold the implant, taking x-rays and scans of the mouth to get a clear picture of your jaw. Using these scans, we will locate the best spot for us to place the implant. Impressions are also taken during the assessment process so that accurate models can be made of the teeth.

Once we have collated all the information required, your dentist will discuss the results with you and formulate your bespoke treatment plan detailing all available options and costs.

Placing the Implant

When it comes to placing the Implant, we always use a local anaesthetic to make sure you are completely at ease throughout the treatment. We place a temporary crown or bridge at the site to keep the area protected while the Implant fuses and heals.

It can take between 3 to 6 months for the Implant to fully fuse to the jawbone and heal. Once it has healed, the Implant is uncovered, allowing accurate impressions to be taken so that the high-quality restoration Crown, Bridge, or Denture can be made.

Preparing for the restoration

The restorations are first tried to confirm fitting, function, and aesthetics before the final attachment to the Implants. A review appointment is made following treatment to confirm function and performance.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is paramount with Dental Implants to ensure the surrounding gum and bone is kept healthy and to prevent receding gums and/or bone loss. We strongly recommend that you attend hygiene appointments and maintain specific interdental cleaning around the implant.

Fitting the replacement teeth

We test the Crowns or Bridge before fitting them in place to check the fit and make sure that you are happy with the final result and your newly restored smile. We then fix them in place to the implant abutment using a special dental adhesive.

This was my first visit as a new patient at Confidental St Helier & felt quite nervous. I didn’t need to worry though, from booking in at reception & meeting my new dentist was a really good experience. I would highly recommend them.

I am so happy that I had my dental treatment here at St Helier. Dr Zena Al-ansari made it possible for me to smile again after more than 30 years. I had Invisalign fitted as well as other procedures during the course of a year and the care and attention I received was outstanding. Zena is such a lovely friendly dentist who puts you at ease and informs you of your procedure every step of the way. Thank you so much for giving me the confidence to smile again😃
