What are dental implants?

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. 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. Implants can improve how you eat and speak, prevent shrinkage of the jawbone, and keep existing teeth firmly in place.

Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone to act just like tooth roots. As titanium is a durable metal that is very well tolerated by the body, these cylindrical posts eventually fuse with the bone, providing a firm foundation for a crown or bridge.

Why have dental implants?

  • 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.
  • They eliminate the speaking and chewing problems that may be caused by missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures.
  • They can provide a significant boost to your confidence by restoring your smile.

What is involved in having dental implants?

It takes several appointments for us to place an implant and restore a missing tooth. We start with an initial consultation where we discuss in detail your treatment plan and how long we envisage the treatment will take.

We take x-rays and scans of your mouth so we can get a clear picture of your jaw. It’s important that there is enough bone density to support an implant. We use these x-rays and scans to locate the best spot for us to place the implant. If we are replacing a single missing tooth, the implant will be placed where the tooth root used to be.

We always use anaesthetic and make sure you are completely at ease when having the implant placed. We place a temporary crown or bridge at the site to keep the area protected while the implant fuses and heals. It takes a few months for the implant to fully fuse to the jawbone. Once it has healed, we arrange to the top of the implant to be exposed from the gum so we can take impressions of the area.

Whether you are having a crown or a bridge affixed to your implant, we will need to take impressions so we can create perfect replacement teeth. These impressions are then used by a dental lab where your new teeth will be made from tooth-like porcelain. Once they have been crafted and sent back to us, we arrange for the fitting.

The fitting makes the treatment worth the wait when you can see yourself with a full smile again. We test the crowns or bridge before fitting in place to check the fit and make sure that you are happy with the end result. We then fix them in place to the implant abutment using a special dental adhesive.

Looking after your implants

Just like with natural teeth, implants will last longer if you keep up with a regular and thorough cleaning routine. While the replacement teeth are resistant to bacteria, the supporting gum tissue and bone are not. Keeping your mouth clear of bacteria will make sure your implants last just as long as your natural teeth.

FAQ’s

What are dental implants?

Dental Implants is a treatment designed to replace missing teeth effectively and is a long-term solution, in comparison to removable dentures. If you have lost teeth due to decay, trauma, infection, or gum disease this treatment would be beneficial. It can improve speech, eating and prevent your jawbone from shrinking in order to maintain the placement of existing teeth.

Titanium posts are used for the implants which are then surgically placed in the jaw bone as tooth roots. This fuses with the bown and provides a foundation for crowns and bridges.

How painful is a dental implant?

As general or local anesthesia is used, the treatment is not painful. The numbness from the anesthesia will wear off and there may be mild pain.

How long do dental implants last?

As a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth, they can last for 20 to 30 years, as long as proper hygiene is undertaken.

Can you break an implant tooth?

The root of the implant tooth can break if pressure is applied before it’s bonded with your jawbone.

How soon after extraction can I get an implant?

A minimum of a 10 week wait will be needed for undertaking dental implant treatments.

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😃
