How Are Dental Implants Placed?

Missing or damaged teeth can be a real cause of distress. Between dealing with the embarrassment associated with hiding your smile, the problems that failing or absent teeth cause while you’re eating, and the worries you may have about your general oral health – your mind will probably be working overtime managing the stress.

Dental implants are widely regarded as the most effective option when replacing missing teeth. Your implants will support replacement teeth and help you restore confidence in your smile and your ability to chew, talk, and laugh. 

If you’re thinking about getting dental implants, you may wonder how they’re placed. 

In this brief guide, we’ll discuss the processes we use during dental implant surgery. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium screws which replace missing tooth roots. They bed down into your jaw and fuse with the bone. Once placed into position, they’re capped off with realistic-looking teeth.

Because they reach down into the bone, they provide unparalleled stability for the teeth they’ll support. 

What Types Of Dental Implants Are Available?

There are several options when it comes to dental implants. We can replace a single tooth with just one implant. This will be capped with a crown that looks just like one of your own teeth. 

All-on-4s, Implanted bridges, and implanted dentures are all options for replacing multiple teeth. These use several implants to support up to a full arch of teeth. 

How Do We Place Dental Implants?

We’ll place your dental implants under anaesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing. Every procedure we carry out is carefully planned before we start. We’ll take a full range of digital scans so we can see exactly how the implant will be placed. 

Some implants need to be placed over several months, whereas we can perform some procedures in just one day.

What Are the Benefits Of Dental Implants?

Compared to dentures, implants are a dream come true for anyone that’s lost teeth. Dentures tend to easily come loose, making them wobbly and impractical. This makes speaking and smiling challenging, but worst of all, it means you have to be very picky about what you even attempt to eat.

Dental implants are solid. You’ll be able to eat what you like and smile with confidence. Not only that, but you’ll look amazing while you’re doing it.

Having dental implants stops a whole host of other dental problems. They’ll prevent neighbouring teeth from moving about and sliding out of line and they’ll ensure your jaw doesn’t deteriorate – which can make you look old before your time.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

A well-looked-after dental implant will last a lifetime. Titanium is chosen because it’s strong. As long as you brush twice daily and stay up-to-date with dental appointments, you can expect your teeth to look great for years to come.
